Scoots Quake 2 Zone, at http://quake2.scoots.com has announced a contest for the best banner and button for the South Park Quake II TC. The banner will be used at the top of the SPQTC page, at http://southpark.scoots.com, and the button will be used for general linking purposes. The winner will not receive any money, nor even a bag of chips, but the respect of all of his/her friends, and the gratitude of the entire SPQTC team.AWOQ2
This project has recently received support from Matt Stone, creator/executive producer of South Park, so we're hoping to avoid any legal issues. Matt told me that their first episode was nearly delayed four weeks because of Duke Nukem, but now Quake II is their passion.
Here is the word on the official Quake II demo...Site Movement
Activision QA is currently testing the official Q2 demo (not the bugged version from before). It will be available packaged in the Wolfenstein 3D reissue BUT we'll have it live on our site within the next few days. I currently don't know when it's coming out of QA...
I'll keep you posted.
Just finished a successful server test on a T1. The Strogg classes are working great. The Field Doctor is now fixed and no longer crashes the server, he also infects the enemy team, heals his own, AND gets a frag for every complete heal. I have also reduced the amount of damage Quad Mortars and High Explosives inflict so the entire level doesn't get wasted /* fun to do, but not very practical in a multiplayer game */. I also made some subtle weapon changes and implemented the armor classes for all player types.Battle Of The Sexes News
I now have a Professional 3D and OpenGL modeler working with me. He is currently working on new weapon and player models and skins. When you see the finished product, I know you will love it #8^)
We have devised a new plan for the player editor. The final product will include full management of skins, models, sounds, weapons, and player attributes. We will be posting information on it as soon as the details are ironed out.
Sorry I haven't posted the Strogg classes yet, but I've been busy coding. Here is a list of the classes I have implemented so far /* Remember, there will be 19 wonderful Strogg types to choose from! #8^D */:
<1 Shotgun Guard
<2 Light Guard
<7 Tank Commander

There's a pile of new screenshots of the South Park Quake II TC at quake2.scoots.com. All four main characters have been modeled, and work on other characters, levels, weapons, sound f/x and other items are moving along well. I'm still optimistic for a late March release (pending a timely point release).I wanna kill Kenny!
Starting very soon, the mailbag will be back with, um, me in charge. (Sat resigned after the last issue). So, tell everyone to send in their opinions, rants, comments, feedback, etc. (You'll notice I did not say "questions" or "problems") to email@example.com and I'll get to work on it.Fun Name Petition
