Quake Map Jam 7 (1 comment)
Posted by skint @ 08:14 CDT, 23 July 2016 - iMsg
Quake 1 mapper 'Ionous' has announced the start of the 7th Quake map jam over at Func_Msgboard. The jams run for around 2 weeks and must meet specific guidelines such as a particular texture set or a theme. Previous jams have created some very nice map packs which can all be found here.

The theme this time around is 'Back to Base' so IDbase style maps (id's industrial style) with plenty of water and pipes. The quake mod Quoth is also to be included and the deadline for finished maps is the 11th August 2016.

You can also find progress from various mappers over at the Func_Msgboard forums as well as some of the mappers streaming their work, usually Ionous and Daz. There's also information on tools needed and some reference images on the announcement post.

Posted by entik @ 02:26 CDT, 21 July 2016 - iMsg
Update 0.45 is here with a load of new features. Custom models/cosmetics, new player model animations, new grenade launcher model, end game item drops, rag doll deaths, crouching, and more.
0.45.0 is our character & animation update. We've decided to split training into another release. This allows us to deliver the character & animation build earlier :) Training will become 46, I'll update the road map thread shortly.

ezQuake 3.0.1 released (3 comments)
Posted by Ĺke Vader @ 11:43 CDT, 19 July 2016 - iMsg
As the $25,000 QuakeCon 2on2 TDM tournament in Dallas, Texas is approaching (4-7th August), the ezQuake development team has been hard at work getting the QuakeWorld client ready for the action. Just a few weeks ago we saw the release of ezQuake 3.0 which brought a plethora of changes, with some being major overhauls of important parts of the client. Other changes were made to accommodate requests from the QuakeCon tournament crew with regards to rules and regulations, ensuring a fair tournament while still taking into consideration how the game has evolved over the years.

The ezQuake 3.0.1 version features no revolutionary changes but rather, as the version number suggests, aims to smash any remaining bugs and potential stability issues. To install the new version, simply download and place the executable in your Quake folder.

On a related note it should be mentioned that the nQuake installer still features a ezQuake 2.x version but will also be updated in time for Quakecon as it will be used on the tournament PC's.

An Australian Promode film by AustraliaJS3.

We had an idea back in 2013 to make a frag movie after a few years of heavy local activity, but never actually got around to it. I decided to finally let the idea come to life after a few hours of nostalgic reminiscing. 3 days later, and we have Useless Idlers. Because 20 year old me and 16-18 year old me have different ideas of "good frags," many demos didn't make the final cut in here in 2016, and I also lost a whole heap of demos in between migrating computers while i was an active player.

The name was derived from the 20+ or so people that idled in, but frustratingly never actually !add'd to any games. All in all the film is more of a memoir than anything, to the countless hours we sunk into what we believe to be the finest FPS ever created.

Enjoy the first and last proper CPMA frag movie Australia has to offer :)

Attention CA Players!

You may have noticed that the bot in #capickup went offline some time ago due to the bot's creator being absent. As a solution, Lebanon un4x and United Kingdom Drayan have kindly offered to adapt #tdmpickup to also host 4v4 Clan Arena pickups in addition to the existing 4v4 TDM and 2v2 TDM gamemodes.

Each pickup game consists of 2 maps played, each with a roundlimit of 10, with one map picker on each team. The bot gets player's TDM and CA ratings directly from, and the new CA servers are already online. All you need to do is join #tdmpickup, and type:

!a ca

See you there!

2D Demo Viewer Reborn (48 comments)

The 2D demo viewer has come back to life! The code is all new, and here are the biggest differences compared to the old program:
- all Quake 3 and Quake Live demo formats are supported, from dm3 to dm_91
- no longer using Qt, the Windows version requires Direct3D 11 and the Linux version uses the GLFW library
- heat maps and some other stuff :)
- so far, I've worked on this new viewer alone
