  #vq3pickup - 12/06/2005Illkillya | 9994 views | 2 replies 
shady sends word about a new pickup channel which gives a chance to test the vq3 gameplay under cpma. it seems to have caught on very well, as there are already over 100 users in the channel, #vq3pickup. at the moment, most of the players are german and dutch, but they're striving for a more international mix.

theres a mention of the new channel on the qub website, here, mirrored on esreality.

accompanying the launch of the channel, they're running a 16 slot 1v1 cpma vq3 cup, all the usual maps - check out the qubism website for more details and coverage of the cup, as well as for information and faq on cpma vq3 in general.

also, i have recently started to play roe for doom 3 and the single player is sooo much more entertaining than vanilla d3. at some point, i was messing with the grabber in a dark room with a table and few objects lying onto it when 2 'new' imps spawned in the room and started to attack me. their blue fireballs sent flying everything up in the air while projecting blue lights and shadows on the walls and the next 30 seconds it took me to leave the room with half my hp were spectacular. this engine looks very good and it gives you a great feeling of full-on action when the scene is well designed.

  enemy territory nations cup - 09/04/2005Rapier | 16101 views | 14 replies 
right to get straight to the point, the what must be 4th et nations cup is starting again soon, ireland has been given an extended sign up deadline of april 10th which is tommorrow(sunday).

last years captains, nex and sol dont want to do the job, i've been thinking about applying for the position but wouldn't be the best prospective captain due to eccentric work hours. (fancy a 12hr night shift anyone?) however that might change if my current plan to get sacked goes ahead.

the other issue is player numbers: we just don't have enough decent and/or interested players for the squad, its 6v6 but at the very least you'd hope to have minimum 8 players, maximum 12 for the squad. i'm suprised at the lack of interest in the game from the q3 community here, especially as it is similar to q3 in ways (strafe jumping, physics, aim style).

basically this is an appeal to anyone who thinks they might like to try their hand at the game. i personally dont think it would take long to get up to scratch aimwise but the tactics and teamplay are more in-depth in comparison q3 with good comms a necessity, i guess a close q3ctf match might resemble et comms a bit. anyway if your interested try and stick your name down here by tommorrow evening
we'll try and get you up to scratch on how it was meant to be played by the time and maybe even during the cup itself.

p.s. mindphuck and melachi you still play et or want to play?

  eircom upgrade - 03/04/2005MIXU | 16732 views | 10 replies 
it seems that the lovely guys and gals over at eircom have decided to take the upgrade into full account after all. whether this be a little gift to us customers or a tactical move against smart telecom, who knows? the latter would make more sense in fairness..

so, whats the up's and downs of this upgrade? as far as i can see, there be only one and that is the download rate. no upload rate upgrade has been mentioned as far as i know.

so on with the jist.


your current bandwidth reading is:

1.58 mbps

which means you can download at 202.24 kb/sec. from our servers.


cool! 202kbs from blacknight.ie

wow you say? this is amazing, fast speeds !!!

yeah, until you realise your ping is fucked again. seems i've an extra 15ms added onto my connection outside of uk/ireland, so gg.

hopefully this will be fixed soon, so i can continue my eircom propaghanda against all other people on dif isp's with higher pings!

on another note, seems quetzal from galway has an uber leet connection (ping wise). 13ms to local servers, 26 to uk, 27 to netherlands, 38 to germany/denmark and 52 to sweden. this is with wifi, who'd of thought?

  irishbroadband tbh - 27/02/2005benji | 11815 views | 6 replies 
was playing off a friends connection yesterday, the ibb 1meg/1meg 8:1 line, and my god the ping was vicious.

it was a nice steady 25 to jolt and felt perfectly smooth, (also while i was playing with this 25 ping, the 2 other lads were playing fps's aswell with not even the slightest glitch to the ping ) .

then on games5 it was 8-9dos ping and in game was about 11-14, which i thought felt like lan, and as such we didnt bother host a lan server, and just used games5.

anyone else got the same conn and know of any problems? otherwise i might considering switching for it :>

and, oh yeah, that's right: there will be a ctf mode for the multiplayer \o/\o/\o/. the threewave team has been hired to work on it which probably means that the maps will be great. and it also explains why there wasn't any comments/work on doom3 from them so far ...

  jolt ctf season ends - 23/11/2004Zero | 11061 views | 16 replies 
now that myself and mp's dsl orders are in, looking forward to being back online playing. looking at the jolt website, the results are in for the end of the ctf league, where we have some good results from the irish sides.
fh come in a very strong second in div3a, (won: 10, drawn: 1, lost: 3, cap diff: 23, points: 21), earning themselves promotion to division 2.
joining them in division 2 are n8z, who despite player unavailability problems (me included), got themselves together after a shaky start and came in second in div3c by a point, (won: 9, drawn: 1, lost: 4, cap diff: 28, points: 19).
baz's ded team came in 3rd in div3c, (won: 7, drawn: 1, lost: 6, cap diff: 12, points: 15), narrowly missing promotion. all in all, a good show from us paddys, keep it up next season guys.

has posted an excellent, 25-page, in-depth article titled
the final hours of half-life 2
. the report covers:

  • the choice by valve software
    to develop their own game engine

  • the inclusion of realistic physics and articulate characters

  • why half-life 2
    didn't appear at e3 2002

  • the real story behind the september 30, 2003 release date

  • the lawsuit between valve and vivendi universal games

  • how game levels are envisioned and created

  • how a 21-year-old german named axel g hacked into valve's network

yeah, i know it's not quake, but there isn't one person here who isn't going to be itching for this, especially after the lukewarm reception the single player game in doom received.
