406 Patch! Woo Hoo!!! -Gargoyle, 26/02
After reading about the 406 patch, I'm very excited about 1 Server Admin feature the new patch with offer. With this new feature I'll be able to redirect all players to Unreal Center for auto Downloading any files needed for our server when they try to connect to our server. That means I can leave our player limit higher & not have to worry about the players in the game getting any Download lag. Also this should allow for very high transfer rates for the Downloaders. UT just keeps getting better & better, wouldn't you have to agree???

Windows 2000 -elmo, 24/02
I have personally tested and evaluated Windows 2000 amd I have had to conclude that W2K is hopeless for gaming purposes at the moment, althought it is good for busniess purposes. The W2K drivers are (or as 1 person put it) "uncomprehesible".
Do you have any questions or comments about Windows 2000? mail me at email@example.com
Community happenings -Revolver, 23/02
First, some Fightclub pimpage:
The rules of Fight Club are simply. You fight. Every week, there will
be a little get together on ICQ chat. Then we set a server & have the
challenges. All matches will be 20 frag limit & 15 minute time limit. To
schedule a match, you must challenge someone. Now there can be on your own
time fights, in which you simply email me how many games you won or loss &
your opponent (1 win is when the frag limit is reached, not how many frags
you get, just how many games are going on, & if you don't get the frag limit
you get 1 loss.. The day of the week that we will hold these matches will be
4pm PST. I will have you set on upcoming events for the matches to come. Now
every month I will hold a Main Event. This will have all title shots, plus
some other just fun games. Those events will be held on Sundays around noon
PST. Same meeting place.
There are currently 5 championships. Fight Club Championship ... the
best of the best, Deathmatch Championship ... owner of DM, InstaGib
Championship ... for those quick deaths, Team Deathmatch Championship ...
two heads work better than one, Sniper Arena Championship ... you were in my
sites then you died :). The only championship that cannot be challenged for
is the Fight Club Championship. The only way you can get a shot at it is, is
to win a Main Event free for all, or beg me (trust me I can be nice :P ).
Please PLEASE PLEASE!!! I want people to challenge the champs for their
titles. For the weekly thing it would be nice for people to have the chance.
Now click here to learn how to challenge people.
This is a new idea. Where we have groups of people who can challenge as
a group, make alliances with other groups, etc. You can either join a
faction, create a new one, or not join one at all. These factions will be
also for CTF games, Assault, etc.
Check everything at Fightclub.
The Danish UT clan No Fear needs someone to create a skin for them. Check their site here.
Salvador is starting a clan for Infiltration, then you can contact him at ICQ# 58033851.
I'm gonna post an interview with 3D Realms' John Anderson soon. Note: It's gonna be the last interview until after E3.

It's going to be a blast. If anyone wants to meet the team, please stop by the booth. Most of us will be there and showing off the game. There are more plans, but I wouldn't want to take away from GT/Infograme's marketing fire.

Deus Ex Preview -Revolver, 23/02
The boys and girls over at Daily Radar continue their spotlight on Deus Ex with a preview of Ion Storm's upcoming RPG. Here's the traditional slice:
Within all the turmoil, gangs like the Russian Mafia and the Hong Kong triads have flourished like roaches in a sewer. The only relic left to defend something like order and law is the United Nations Anti-Terror Coalition (UNATCO) and their nano-enhanced special agents. Their battle is not only global but local. A plague called the "Gray Death" has devastated the world's population, leaving isolated urban areas in the control of brutal gangs .
