CR Bot v.99
Here are some notes from the news page: Not many new features are in v0.99, it's more like bugfix for v0.97. Hopefully, I fixed problem with bots getting stuck under water and in lava. New things: bots will try to avoid rockets and blaster/hyperblaster projectiles (the higher skill level, the better they suppose to avoid it). New var "bot_chat" for turning on/off kill/pain/death messages from bots. Couple of tweaks in shooting accuracy and decision code. Jumping and lava avoidance code still needs work...Check it out in the bots section.

WorldCraft Editing Utility Q2 patch
If you have the editing utility WorldCraft from www.worldcraft.com, then here is the Quake 2 patch for it...Some people must really want it...Check it out in the editing section.

Quake 2 Expert DM
The Quake 2 Version of Expert DM has been released. Here's some info. Expert Quake2 is the product of extended design focusing on game depth and playability. Through many means, including balance and lowered lethality, simple-minded tactics such as camping and ambushing are eliminated in Expert because they are ineffective, and reflexes and ping have a reduced role in the game. Only through great skill and teamwork can players excel at Expert...Check it out in the mods section.

Loki Minion's CTF v1.3
Here are some of the new features:

Check it out in the mods section.

Weapons Accelerator
A "mod" that you can put in any level as an item that lets you have fifty accelerated shots with the current weapon, and can be turned on and off...Check it out in the mods section.

QERadiant Build 037
Already there are changes to QERadiant, and some fixes too...Check it out in the editing section.

C.R. Bot v.98
The C.R.Bot has reached v0.98, with some really nice changes. "Mainly I was focusing on improving bot's jumping ability and on tweaking how bot decides to use certain weapon based on circumstances." It also includes a new menu system, a new skill level (0), the ability for dedicated servers to disallow the creation of bots from a client machine (for Internet C.R.Bot servers), and the ability to display stats about all the bots in the game...Check it out in the bots section.

StudioMDx
A .MDL and .MD2 editor that's based on the MedDLe source code (for those that joined the QuakeMunity after MedDLe was dead, it was one of the first, and best, .MDL editors out there). StudioMDx can edit and save as both formats, and can also convert between the two formats (open as .MDL (Quake), save as .MD2 (Quake 2), and vice versa)...Check it out in the editing section.

New Rocket Arena 2 Server Version
This version address all of the stability issues and adds a bunch of new features. In addition to enhanced teamplay support and some fun stuff for observers, Rocket Arena 2 now has the most flexible map rotation/configuration of any mod...Check it out in the multiplayer section.

New Section
With all the new models our like Snork, and all them, I decided to make a models page, since they don't belong anywhere else.

DM Reviews Section Updates
Nevermind the prior message...I got the DM Reviews section set up by Rate, but not yet Name. I am going to have section on the main page of the DM Reviews section for how to install and use them.

DM Reviews Section
I got the DM Reviews section up and running, and also the Reviews section...I have only done the maps I rated 10, 9, and 8, but expect more today. Also, instead of having the news ticker at the bottom of the left frame, I decided to just remove it as I don't really need it anyway.

Menu Mod v1.0
You know that really cool mod that is used for Rocket Arena with the menus and stuff? Well, programmers can get this mod and use the menu on their own mods to make them more user-friendly...Check it out in the mods section.

New LavaBall Map
Icelandic Icebowl, a new map for LavaBall This is a large map, which is basically an inverted bowl of ice with a lava ceiling. One fun thing to try on this map: Use the superskate feature and slam into an opponent really hard. If you hit them at just the right angle, they will fly up the side of the bowl and into the lava ceiling...pretty neat!...Check it out in the mods section.

Quake 2 Monsters Model Pack
A pack of Quake 2 monster models...15 in all. Nice for deathmatch against your friends...Check it out in the skins section.(There are no other sections)

New levels

Site Updating
I gave my site a new boost today by creating new pictures for it including the picture at the top and the picture in the top of the left frame...They aren't great, so if you can do better, please tell me (but ask first before sending pictures...please, unless smaller than 10kb) Also, LinkExchange had to go. It took too long of a time to load, and it was worthless. There are too many people using it for it to be effective. Also, I have changed just about the whole left frame. But, none of the REVIEWS links work yet. Also, the news ticker is still there, just at the bottom.

Battle of the Sexes v2.0
Here are the eight new features:

  1. Player map voting is now possible. The map list is driven by a file called "vote.lst" which lists the actual map name along with a description to display. Players can then vote on a new map and once all players have voted, the new map is loaded. To vote on a map type 'vote' in the console or bind it to a key.
  2. Player glows with color of key when carrying key.
  3. If a team gets 3 captures in a row, then all enemy teams get a Quad Rally! Basically, each member of the enemy teams gets quad damage. This gives them a chance to come back after getting their butt kicked.
  4. If Kamikazee has 31+ grenades, a suicide will trigger an Apocalypse that will destroy everything in sight! All targets have to be visible, if you cannot see the kamikazee you are safe from the Apocalypse.
  5. Keys show up properly in inventory as "Blue Team Key", "Red Team Key" or "Green Team Key". You can also drop a key you are carrying.
  6. Added "dropkey" alias to drop whatever key you are holding.
  7. Every thirty seconds a help message is displayed if help is turned on.
  8. Added "helpon" and "helpoff" aliases to allow the user to turn help messages on and off.

I need feedback!
Ok...when I earn enough money for a domain, I am getting one, the problem is that I don't know whether to get a fully virtual domain or just a partial one. Also, I need to know what the address will be...like www.?.com...please help.

Bunch of updates
Here's what I found on the web, mainly on PlanetQuake:

Notice
Sorry about the updating of this page...I had a poopload of homework to do but now it is the weekend where I live, so expect a lot...I have been working on the reviews a started with the level, mainly the DM ones. I need to know through e-mail what you would like me to review, such as weapon placement, size, etc...Ok, I finally had the time to download every level from the CDROM.COM archive and start doing the reviews. I found a place on the Internet that I could get a sponsor from (and I have been looking for one desperately), and they give me $.05 for every click on the banner that the people who come to this site do. I need to know if I put this new banner on my page, who would click on my sponsor, as to earn me money for a DOMAIN!!! which I could desperately use. I do not want to put the add on my site and not earn anything, as for it to be just a waste of time, so please, when I put the banner on my page, which should be in a week or so, please go to my sponsor, which, in the end, would benefit you. Thank you.
