New Tribes 2 Screenshot

Submitted by: Calliope @ 10:18 AM | Monday, June 26, 2000 | (url: )

The good people at Dynamix have updated their weekly screenshot on the official Tribes 2 page, Tribes2.com. This week the shot is of a just-fired disc launcher and the luminescent disk arcing its way gracefully through the air, zeroing in on a just barely visible opponent who will soon be martyred in the never-ending quest for tribe superiority. And it looks really cool, too. Check it out at the link above.

Crunchy Update

Submitted by: Calliope @ 10:07 AM | Monday, June 26, 2000 | (url: )

This from Crunchy, regarding a script he wrote dealing with fps and tracking ability:

I've added a system to disable tracking when the fps goes wild, this happens when you alt-tab to windows and mucks up the stats. Now when the fps goes above a maximum the tracking is disabled so that the stats aren't effected. You can change this value in the options menu to suit your machine. There is a new option to change the delay before tracking is enabled when you first join a server or change map. This delay is important as the fps doesn't settle for a while and takes even longer to settle if you get some disk lag.
Crunchy's scripts are available here.

Tom "Cheater" Szabo, the Director of UVALAN 2, made an official announcement moments ago regarding the total prize package for the UVALAN. "Nearly $12,000 in cash and prizes have been donated from a number of industry sponsors" Tom announced, "And this list is far from being exhausted. There are yet a number of sponsors who have yet to confirm their donations for this event."

Here's a brief list of just a few of the prizes that will be distributed at UVALAN:

- 3dfx VooDoo 5 5500 Video Cards
- 3dfx VooDoo 3 3000 Video Cards

- ...and a number of promotional gifts, T-shirts, and assorted goodies far too many to mention.

When asked about the contributions from our very-own Dynamix, developer of Tribes and it's much-anticipated successor: Tribes2, Cheater had this to say: "The contributions made by Dynamix are absolutely phenomenal. The attendees at the UVALAN will be very, very pleased."

Dynamix has been kind enough to contribute a special UVALAN-only Tribes2 movie premiere. And if that were not enough, they've also offered one spot on the Tribes2 beta test team! That's right. UVALAN will give away one Tribes2 beta test spot to a lucky participant at the UVALAN!

When asked about the attendance cap, Cheater replied "The cap is set at 160. As of about 9:30 this evening, we have 121 paid reservations, with 81 unpaid registrations." Don't wait another moment. If you don't want to miss out on this event, get to Cheater's Wayside and register now!

Speed Script Released

Submitted by: Rayn @ 03:37 AM | Sunday, June 25, 2000 | (url: )

Some unknown scripter has released a new server side script called Speed-O-Meter. It does exactly what you think: It displays your current velocity, and also tracks your peak velocity. Since the velocity information is server-side, it only works while hosting your own server, but it could still be a useful tool while working on routes offline and such. Before you ask: no I can't develop a client-side version. If nothing else, its interesting. I was playing with it some while I tested it, I can't seem to get my speed past 60 m/s. Then again, I'm not the speediest fella out there. Anyways, those who are interested can get the details or download it on my scripting site: Rayn's Bucket O'Tribes. Post your top speeds on the forums too, I'm interested.

Rayn Updates

Submitted by: figgs @ 02:14 AM | Sunday, June 25, 2000 | (url: )

I thought I'd post this so Rayn wouldn't have to embarass himself by posting his own news again...

Rayn has made 2 new scripts, BlasterLess and RepairKits. BlasterLess drops your blaster on various different events, and RepairKits buys and uses 6 repair kits at an inv, or if you're not at an inv, simply uses your kit.

Check them out at Rayn's site: www.tribalwar.com/rayn

Got Milk? Wants You

Submitted by: Calliope @ 10:03 PM | Saturday, June 24, 2000 | (url: )

Mark "Got Milk?" Frohnemeyer posted on our forums tonight requesting player feedback. Straight from the man himself:

Well, had some problems with my servers crashing on mission change, so I've got them up with infintespawn going and a custom map rotation (no broadside/scarabrae, + some of the balanced / opencalls). I'd love to get some big games going and see some feedback to the changes that were put in (pre-game buys and flag stand caps).

Hypothesizing about what it is or isn't good or bad without playing it first, while welcome, is not as useful to us as actual gameplay feedback.

Thanks!
-Mark

Europe Does Maps

Submitted by: Calliope @ 09:23 PM | Saturday, June 24, 2000 | (url: )

Euro-tribesplayers, which runs the European Tribes League, has released for download the entire candidate map pack for the upcoming ETL 3 season. Players can play the maps and then vote for their favorites to be included in tournament play. Sounds good to me. Download the maps from the Euro-Tribes files section, and if you're interested vote for your favorites.
