The Nehahra Project has been revamped. A new
version has been uploaded which include the soundtracks, new code and an updated Nehahra.exe. Some maps have
also been updated in this final version and the game itself should run more smoothly. Mindcrime, from The Nehahra Project,
recommend reinstalling everything from scratch. So get on over to The Nehahra Project, and get downloading.
[QQ] Björn has updated his Qview server list. You can download the new version here.
For more information on this, head on over to the Quad Quakers site, and take a peek at the News.

We Have a Winner !!
Megazoid at 12.00
The Demo Competition is over, and we have a winner. All the demo submissions were amazing, so
picking a winner was a tough decision. Also it was a mixed bag, with trick, skill, bug & funny demos
and mixed together. I finally decided [QQ].G0ku. was the winner with his dm6trick.dem. It's a funny DM6
bug that as far as I know, [QQ].G0ku. is the first and only person to find. The winner has been emailed,
and his Resurrection Pack for Quake will be dispatched shortly. A big thank you to all those who entered :)
The Winning Demo
||Björn & G0ku shaft each other in this very odd DM6 glitch
The Runners Up
||Very skilled double RL jump on DM3 - awesome.
||By The Shambler
||Inhuman. I almost choked when I saw this one.
||By [QQ] Tapley
||Watch Tapley accelerated to light speed. BOOM!
||Randomizes Quake's demo order. Play it a few times
||By [QQ] Kilcreek
||Wicked style from Killcreek in this DM6 jump
||Total unrehearsed. One of those mad Quake moments
||The DM4 warp bug. Tricky to pull off.

Competition Last Chance
Megazoid at 9.30
Just 2 days left of the Demo Competition (see the news for Tuesday, June 26). It has to be said,
the quality of the submissions so far is fantastic. If you haven't submitted a demo yet, don't be shy, send one in.
Competition closes midnight (GMT) Sunday, 8th. The Winner (and all demo entries) will be posted on Monday.
A new Quake 1 mod has popped up from nowhere. PlanetQuake
got the scoop on Xwar. Xwar is by Ali Salehi (Little3D), and uses a
custom Quake 1 engine, new maps, models & sounds. There is not much in the way of details, but there are some screenshots & a short playable demo.
The engine modifications look pretty familiar, but the weapons & enemies are very cool.

Engine & Mod Updates
Megazoid at 10.30
Xoltan has updated his Fiend Hunter site.
Although not 100% complete, he has some impressive new screenshots showing some of the advanced features.
MHquake version 5.06 is out. Quake1 never looked so good.
Theres loads of new features. A full list of them can be found here.
I love the little touches like the muzzle flash and the smoking torches.

New Quake Source Project
Megazoid at 1.44
Benjamin Vanderford announces on Qmap he is looking for mappers
for his new commercial multiplayer only game using the Quake 1 engine. Benjamin says; "This game will have the most
innovative and superior gameplay ever seen in a first person shooter." (hehehe). Based on the GNU open source Quake
1 engine, on completion it will be sold either to a distribution company, or via a website mail-order system.
Screenshot of "Project 0" can be found here & here
Last day before the close of the
"Back to Nature / natural terrain" mapping contest over on Team Shambler
The deadline is 12 am GMT Sunday 1st July. I look forward to the results of this compo.
You Spend Too Much Time on Quake When... over at Yoda's Swamp
No other news. Sigh... Quake1 is real quiet at the moment. Everybody is hoarding
for Qexpo in 3 weeks. It's going to be Quake overload then =)
