SteQve, creator of the ServObit mod which generates Quake 1 style death messages for Quake 2, has found a Big Freakin' Bug (BFB) that may apply to other Death Message mods as well, since all Death Message mods must effectively manipulate the same internal data structures. This bug crashes the Quake 2 server.Weapon FAQ
The bug is triggered when two players kill each other at the same time; a death message is printed for one person, then the server crashes. This is the symptom of ServObit, and is likely the symptom of other affected Death Message mods. It is likely that not all death message mods are affected by this bug.
Details can be found at http://www.shore.net/~steqve/bfb.html. SteQve would like to hear from other Death Message modders as well as server operators who have experienced this type of problem.

I am working very hard right now to finish up the monsters and weapons pages, I have all the numbers, and I just need to get some more pictures and make everything into html files, and I should be able to finish it before x-mas. I'll let you know when I'm done. For now, I've updated the individual monsters and weapons pages with the "correct" numbers from the source code (some of the old ones were a bit off).

I got word through e-mail that the official Quake 2 strategy guide should be coming out in January. It seems that it's a joint project between ID software and GT Interactive. There could be more companies in on the book but that's all I know of. Along with the book there will be a disk with some new Quake 2 levels on it. It seems that the levels will come from your friends on the net and not from ID level designers. I myself was asked to do a level for the book so I am currently working on one. All levels have to be approved by ID first so nothing is set in stone yet. Keep your eye out for the book, it's gonna be good.Quake 2 websites
Aenima Interactive (aenima.telefragged.com) has gone under some changes recently, the biggest being that we are no longer going to be doing a Quake 2 TC. We are not dead however! Aenima is going to be commited to creating DM paks for Quake 2! what i am looking for is people who have done quake single player, DM maps. You MUST have at least one Quake map out. If you dont, you wont even be considered. The DM pak will have a total of 10 maps, and will NOT include any new weapons, powerups...just pure hardcore DM mayhem. If your interested in working on this, and, hopefully more projects, please send any Quake bsp's, in ZIP format (no raw bsp's please..) to email@example.comHmmm...maybe I should apply :)

Just saw this on www.quake2.com. People Magazine has a poll up for the most intriguing people of 1997, and saw that Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead and Army of Darkness fame) is up in the running for the top 10 (He wrote for forward to Waring's Deathmatch Manifesto).So what are you all waiting for? Go vote for the man already! :)
A lot of the elements from Army of Darkness were the inspiration for DOOM. If you're a fan of DOOM or enjoyed Army of Darkness, it'd be really cool if you voted for Bruce =)
Robert E. Waring is on a crusade to put Bruce Campbell into People magazines Top 10! Bruce Campbell wrote the forward to Waring's Deathmatch Manifesto, which CNET called "The Ultimate Deathmatch Book" and Mr. Waring believes the power of the Internet Quake community can perform the online poll and get Bruce into the top 10. It's our way of thanking Bruce for his great performances in movies like Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, which, according to Waring, were the inspiration for DOOM and we all know how DOOM started this whole 3D action craze! Let's show America the power of the Internet! Let's see how high up the ladder we can get him.Modifications/conversions/utils
If he makes it into the top 10, they will do an article with pictures in the magazine. It would be a nice boost for his career and also truly let him know that his fans are 100% behind him.
You can only vote once, but if you have multiple screen names, you can vote for him once under each name.
Here's the URL to cast your vote(s).
Make it happen, Don't delay. CAST YOUR VOTE NOW!!!
