I'd like to show you my new tool developed for players still playing Quake Live (especially for participants of LAN Tournaments).
This is an open-source collection of configs packed to a Workshop item providing a few useful features.
- subscribe with one click, automatic updates on any PC
- synchronization of HUD-files (.menu files are usually missed)
- no problems with undeletable configs and other Steam Cloud issues
- special sections for configs from tournaments, streams, servers, useful scripts
- you don't need USB-drives for configs anymore
- viewing the history of changes on Github
TODO: uploading multiple files, automatic optimization of uploaded configs, automatic publishing, etc.
I'd like to share some of my webtools which might be useful for quake admins.
The first one was made a year ago for seeding a ton of new participants of 125FPS cups. Fast and easy search using any symbols in PlusForward Rankings. Import, automatic sorting by rating and export to challonge.com within seconds. It's still used.
Today I released a new tool which helps to write announcements and reports on Discord. The tool can:
- fix nickname using aliases and PlusForward Rankings
- add flags
- add discord tags
- add frequently used icons
- add stream links and casters using short names
- insert the last video link from a twitch channel
- wrap links to hide previews
- counter of symbols (to avoid 2000 symbols limit)
- save and load messages as templates
With love and only for Russians. No excuses, no limitations. <3
- translations of all Tim Willits's interviews
- frequently asked questions
- useful links
- interesting comments and reviews of famous players
- everything that we know from open sources
- regular updates and improvements
The page is optimized for all mobile screen sizes. Read answers are synced with your browser history and became unread after update.

I continue the process of saving valuable content from Cyberfight (demos were first).
Now it is galleries. If you have not seen its before, you will be really impressed. There are a lot of oldest photos of famous players. Some of these photos are even older than you!
All files and folders renamed by its titles. Also each gallery contain info.json with following information: galleryId, galleryTitle, photosCount, comentsCount, photos (source, photoId, photoTitle, imageId, imageSrc, imageExt, imageSize), comments (authorId, authorName, dateTime, html, text).
Three years ago on January 12 project deliberate murder was officially launched! During these three years the men deliberate murder took prizes (first more often) places on the 355 leagues and championships, played in a tournament in Russia, the Netherlands, Sweden, the Czech Republic and the United States. Happy Birthday 102!
I wrote a little script for leagues and website admins, which will help to make an easy screenshots without print-screens and manual cropping.
The script makes these actions:
- render stats from url using PhantomJS
- increase width to "640px"
- remove background images
- hide "header"
- hide "close" button
- hide "navigation bar"
- show absolute date (not relative)
- change date and time format to "DD MMM YYYY HH:MM"
- sort and colorize teams summary (first - winner, second - loser)
- calculate and add columns "netFrags" and "netDamage"
- show players scores (optional)
- show weapon frags (optional)
- show weapon accuaracy (optional)
- set team names (optional)
- automatic upload to imgur.com
May be not stable, because new hosting and Nodejs... Sorry for that.

Dear ladies and gentlemen, we bring to your attention an epic logo contest for a Russian Quake3 movie “34” (“3ulu4”). The action of the movie revolves around certain 34 (3ulu4), being the main character’s nickname. The genera could be described as a full-length mashinima/frag film with today’s russian pro-quakers for main participants. The project promises to be quite full of content, interesting, pioneering and vivid. Inquietudes are to be mixed with a bad-assed action seasoned with infinite irony.
The logo has to comprise text – 34 (or 3ulu4 (spelled like Zilich)), it’s allowed to use some sign.
3ulu4: “Logo is one of the basic factors in creating a platform from which to depart later on. In order for you to be aware what the ultimate logo should look like and refer to (both emotionally and logically), we provide a few examples. Each symbol is about some unique and at the same time universal idea, hence while realization it’s utterly important to concentrate your attention on “why is it this way?”. It’s obligatory that the conception of works sent is explained in detail. The future logo is to accumulate all above-mentioned facts about the movie and convey the spirit of uncompromising struggle at Quake3 arenas. In other words, having seen it, the audience should find themselves in front of an enormous “rabbit hole” entering which promises an unforgettable journey into a Wonderland” Morgot: “Do your best to create a unique logo, without attempts to stylize it to something already existing. Mind readability. There is neither style nor color preference. Oh yeah, was very near to forgot about the main thing – there is no spoon either.
Dates: Dec 15 2009 – Jan 15 2010.
Prize: 100 Euro, an interview with the winner and your nickname for movie credits.
Sent-to: email@example.com (with title “Logo for 34”). Don’t forget to mention your nick and country.
Jugdes: 3ulu4, Morgot.
The works will be posted @ QuakeNews.ru (http://www.quakenews.ru/site/fullnews.aspx?id=151) as we receive them. The number of works per contestant is not limited, although it’s best to send 1-2 quality logos rather than flooding us with shitloads.
- contestants send .jpg versions with commentary.
- images may be performed in any style (raster, vector, paints, felttip pens, pencils etc.)
- it’s desirable for the contestant to have vector of his work, but it’s not obligatory.
