A new version with some features that "rock"...Check it out in the editing section.

More grades problems...less computer time, which means none, except for ICQ. Also, my e-mail account hasn't been created yet, which is definately not a plus. I got on today for 30 min. and updated as well as I could. Also, a switch to Style Sheets may be in the process for this page, so updating still might be a little slow...Boy, for missing 10 days, there has not been that much to update.
Here is some news I picked up from the Jailbreak homepage:
I would like to remind everyone that you CANNOT play jailbreak on v3.12. You will get a "initialization error" if you try to set up a server running 3.12. This is not a bug of Jailbreak - we just need to recompile once the new source is released. You can still play on servers that are running on the old v3.10 Quake2, but you will need to get your old 3.10 exe in order to do that. I'm as axious as the rest of you to get Jailbreak working under 3.12.. Hopefully it won't be too much longer
Check it out in the mods section.
Point Release v3.12!
"The Point Release is out! Here's whats included: 8 new DM maps, cooperative play option, and a ton of bug fixes" Great...more DM maps. The ones now are getting boring. Also, hopefully, the monsters won't get stuck in the walls...Check it out in the essentials section.
Rikard from Sweden has made a soundpack for Quake2...Check it out in the sounds section.
Battle of the Sexes v2.7
Another new version of the Battle of the Sexes mod has been released. Here is some info on the updating:
1) Nurses cannot poison teammates any longer. If a teammate has posioned your health it will tell you that you cannot use the health because it is posioned but it will not hurt you.
2) After much feedback on this question the speed has been given to the women. Since men are heavier due to carrying more armor and ammo it makes sense.
3) Grapple cell usage has been slightly altered based on class:
4) Added new map entities: (bots_goal_blue, bots_goal_red, bots_goal_green) By using these entities in your custom maps it changes the gameplay of BotS. Instead of capturing a key by touching your own team's key, you capture by touching your team's glowing pedestal while holding the enemy key.
5) Added another excellent server to Gamespy Tab and website.
Clan Braveheart - IP# 188.8.131.52 Port# 27915
1) Server crashing bug fixed related to Kamikazees
Check it out in the mods section.
I saw on the Battle of the Sexes page that v3.13 had been released...Again, I'll put it in the essentials section.

C.R. Bot v.99c
Here's some stuff picked up from the C.R. Bot Homepage:
"Oops, teamplay in v0.99b was broken (bots were trying to attack members of their own team), I'm uploading fixed version 0.99c right now, enjoy. Thanks khudson for early bug-report. Also, I forgot to mention yesterday that chaingun and hyperblaster handling code was fixed to include starting and stopping delays, so bots will be on par with normal player."
Check it out in the bots section.

Well, happy Valentine's Day to all you people out there, and good luck with girlfriends and whatnot. Also, sorry for not updating. I had rugby practice and games all Friday through tomorrow (Sunday), but I got the page working correctly in time before that. Hey, you guys checked out the new design PlanetQuake has? E-mail me some stuff for the editorials section on how you like it...Personally, I am not sure about it (Too complicated).......One more thing, my e-mail is down and I am expecting about 600 messages, so hold your horses on getting replies. I will though, reply to every message that needs one.
There wasn't a single thing about it, so I don't really know what you would be downloading. If you know what it is, please e-mail me with it, and I'll post some info for everyone else to see...Otherwise check it out in the mods section.
An editing utility where you can change any Quake map into a Quake 2 one, even with Quake mission pack support!...Check it out in the editing section.
Holy Wars v2.0b6
A new beta version that fixes some bugs like the memory leak bug, but not the ghost bug...This is only an upgrade that will work with previous betas...Check it out in the mods section.
"Teamplay is there, zip/unzip is there to reduce the strain on disk space, latency simulation is there, and lots of other more insignificant changes/fixes."...Check it out in the bots section.

"This is a DEATHMATCH ONLY patch, it does not support coop or single player modes. Team play by model might be possible, yet it has not been tested. On joining a server you are put into observer mode. In observer mode, you cannot move, shoot, or do anything. So, you might want to change classes. The current character classes available are: Sniper, Soldier, NavySeal, Rocketman, Sapper, Techy, and Vampire." They each have different skills, etc...Check it out in the mods section.

Thanks to the people at LogicQuest, I know have a better home than before. Be sure to visit them at http://www.logicquest.com to check out all the good Quake engine games stuff. LogicQuest is also home to other cool pages like BodyShop and others. Thanks LQ!
Fox & Hound Mod
One client is the fox, the rest are hounds. The fox will try to stay alive for the set period of time, and if the fox does so, it wins. The hounds try to kill the fox. When a hound kills the fox, the hound wins and becomes the next fox. Make sense? ... Check it out in the mods section.
Holy Wars v2.0b2
Again, this is another beta, but it has some new bug fixes including the halo "stands back" too much - the current "butterfly effect" is cool to see, but can be a problem if you're very lagged, and a Bad Big Bug could happen when some players left halfway through a game...Check it out in the mods section.
I have made the A-C category in the DM reviews section. Also, I have changed the download's section fonts for better viewing, and I think, it just plain look better.

No...I haven't fallen off the face of the earth or something, just been banned from the computer for a while because of my grades [I on't got two C's] but my parents expect a lot more than that. Also, I am moving to LogicQuest real soon. Thanks LQ. Boy do I have a lot of updating to do!
Battle of the Sexes v2.4
Lots of new stuff!
A pretty cool MD2 editor / viewer with some good features...Check it out in the editing section.
Version 08.b of MDx, the Quake and Quake2 model viewer program is out...Check it out in the editing section.
Expert Q2 v1.1
A new version has been release in the mods section.
Someone, who is a real dick, has deleted another one of my e-mail addresses. Whoever is doing this is such a fag, and they act like such a baby. Stop the immaturity.

I know I have not completed the current sections, but I need something to give this site a boost, as I am losing visitors fast. I have decided to put up an editorials section, like the PlanetQuake mailbag, where you can submit stories, comments, etc. and have them posted. I'll also put my comments and then you (everyone else) can also submit you comments.
I have experimented with fonts and stuff on this page, and I found one I like pretty good. You need to get this font (r_ansi).
Battle of the Sexes v2.3
Here are some new features. Boy, are there a lot of them.
Check it out in the mods section...I wish Spinoza would stop changing it so much. It is a good mod, but I am tired of updating every time it comes out! No offence to you Spinoza.
Quake 2 Launcher
The first Quake 2 frontend to my knowledge has been released, except for Whack of course...I guess it is like the old QuakeFront, but the page doesn't tell much about the program. You need the first version, and then keep downloading patches for it, instead of a new big download each day or week. Here's the author's page, although he doesn't tell you much about the FrontEnd....NOTE: The program won't work if you use a display setting of less than 1024x768...Check it out in the miscellaneous section. Where else could I put it?
