Half-Life Quake1 mod
Megazoid at 03.32
Valve Software's in-house internet mod support team have made a Quake1 mod for Half-Life.
They are calling it Deathmatch Classic or DMC for short. Apparently they created DMC for our
own entertainment, but John Carmack gave them the go-ahead to release it. It should be out very soon.

Yoda's Swamp is up. Check out Net Quake ramblings from the
little green man ;)
The Pipeline is a new website for
mapmakers & players alike. Map authors can upload screenshots of their work in progress so interested
Quakers can check them out. Great idea, definately one for my bookmarks.
Clan QQ are back from their first clan LAN event. Six members managed to make it to the
event held this weekend in Tilburg, Netherlands. Check out the LAN pictures :- Here.

Quake Terminus is on the move (again). Sorry about this, but I have
good reason for moving the site. NetQuake, being the way it is, means that
Quake1 sites and files can disappear on a daily basis. Also changes at
Fileplanet have prompted my decision to host all files. I understand that they
need to make money, but really - who are they trying to kid?
The PR goes something like this :- "The days of guaranteed downloads are
at hand. The next version of FilePlanet is now open. This new version of the
site includes an advanced system called the FilePlanet Download System [FPDS].
The FPDS detects when one of the FilePlanet mirrors is full and gives you the
option to wait a few minutes for an available connection."
I'm sorry, but what it looks like to me is a way to make people look at
advertising for 5 minutes before they download anything. Anyway, you lucky
Netquakers wont have to bother waiting, because I'd be hosting everything right
The move will be tomorrow, but don't worry, there will be auto redirects
Also coming tomorrow, I'm happy to announce that Yoda will be joining us as a weekly
columnist. Yoda will have his own little corner of Quake Terminus called Yoda's Swamp.
He will be commenting on spectrum of NetQuake issues. He is also hoping to include a
weekly Quake Trick demo. Welcome aboard Yoda.

Guy Paddock, the driving force behind
the Cool OS project was kind enough to do an interview for Quake Terminus.
Cool OS is a revolutionary Quake based 3d operating system project. We also have
some exclusive pre-alpha screenshots of the project.
Click here for the interview.
Guy is looking for people to join the Cool OS project. The project has positions open in modelling, programming,
sound, & 2D texture artwork. Check out the project at the SourceForge Site.

Qview List Update
Megazoid at 9.58
Björn of the QuadQuaker Clan
has updated his Qview list of remaining Net Quake servers. It's probably the most
up to date Net Quake server list there is. Björn says, "...you'll find 98% of the servers in existence on it."
Download Qview (it's similar to Gamespy) and Björn latest Qview list from the
file section of the Quad Quakers
website :- http://www.quadquakers.com.
Some Quake Terminus news. I have purchased a domain name for the website - www.quaketerminus.com.
It's not quite working, but will be up in the next day or two. Also I have applied
for hosting with http://www.telefragged.com.
I have no idea if they will except, but it sure would be nice ;)

I'll have more news on my Quake add-on CD later. If you are interested, email me and I'll send you
and list of what's going to be on it. It's going to be the cost of a blank CD & postage.
Everything on the disk is essentually going to be free. It will contain a lot of commercial
material that is not available (for what I can tell) from the internet.
Would you pay $150 for an empty Quake box? Hehe

I have been scanning the Quake sites and PanQuake
stole found some news.
A couple of new Quake sourceport projects have come to fruition and produced,
some Quake madness.
Has just one feature: a "panorama" mode, allowing you to see 360 degrees around.
Works correctly with mlook. Fully configurable. I haven't had a chance to look at
this one, but the screenshots look interesting. Another project - FishEyeQuake, tried to do a
simliar thing. FishEyeQuake worked but with terrible performance, lets hope these guys
have managed to do better.
NRP (Non-Photo Realistic Rendering) Quake, is a fun sourceport project designed to take
the 3d Quake environment and displaying it as if it were hand-drawn. Pencil Wipped from
ChiselBrain Software did something very similar last year.
Anaglyph Stereo Quake
Play Quake in 3D with red - blue glasses. Say no more. You are probably going to puke, with or without
the glasses. I got a headache just looking at the screenshots.
