Rogue Mission Pack

Slipgate passed along an email exchange he had with John Carmack about the recent Quake 3 announcement. Amongst the revelations in John's answer is that Rogue's super-secret "I'd tell you but I'd have to kill you" project, is in fact, another authorized Quake II Mission pack. Here are John Carmack's responses:

    Quake 3 will use almost everything planned for trinity's graphics engine.

    A completely new graphics engine with no ties to q1/q2.

    The following game will have improvements on the graphics engine (about like q1-q2), but completely new game logic / networking / sound.

    No comment on release dates.

    The xatrix pack is due out reasonably soon.

    Rogue is also doing a Q2 mission pack.      Thanks Bluesnews

Quake TV

The ClanRing is hoping to get a healthy turnout of spectators for tonight's Big12 League match between ClanGib and Clan Kapitol to try and stress test the Quake TV system that allows live spectating. The hub of this operation is IRC #clanring on EFNET, and the game starts at 10:00 PM Eastern with enough QTV hubs for at least 900, as well as scorebots and an IRC channel for cheering. This Sounds Real Interesting.
