It Came From Down Under

Submitted by: Calliope @ 11:35 AM | Tuesday, May 30, 2000 | (url: )

I received this e-mail today from {RD}ReaLtime:

I just thought you'd like to know that a new players guild has been launched out of Australia.

The Online Players Collective or ~oPc~ is a Guild for gamers looking for a more competitive, team building and friendly gaming environment for Starseige Tribes, Tribes 2 and mod versions. Currently concentrating on Shifter, HaVoC and TAC (Team Aerial Combat)

We have a training academy which includes server side teaching sessions. Organised battles where individuals score points on the players ladder, but only when their team win. You can meet at the chat for a virtual beer, and while your at it, pick a war with someone!
For more information or to get involved with the ~oPc~, visit their website here.

TWC: US East Defeats Germany

Submitted by: Calliope @ 07:47 PM | Sunday, May 28, 2000 | (url: )

In today's Tribes World Championship match, US East defeated Germany by a score of 6-2. The first map, Dangerous Crossing, was taken by USE 5-1, and the second, Desert of Death, ended in a 1-1 tie. Because TWC scores are based on flag score, USE took it.

With this win, USE advances to the second place match, to be played against Finland.

Tonights scheduled match between the #1 and #2 rungs on the OGL ladder (5150 and S3, respectively), has been cancelled by mutual agreement of both clans. The following message was posted on a TW forum thread by |5150|TheRedDread:

The leadership of 5150 and S3 have decided to cancel the match tonight due to personal tragedies, lack of starters due to the holiday weekend and circumstances beyond our control.

Win2k/NT Patch

Submitted by: Ratorasniki @ 04:51 PM | Sunday, May 28, 2000 | (url: )

Not really Tribes news, but important anyways -- and since a lot of the community uses Windows 2000 i thought i'd post this. There is a new patch available that repairs two potential security problems, including the "ResetBrowser Frame" bug that could allow someone to shut down browsers from a remote location, and "HostAnnouncement Flooding," an NT4-specific problem that could congest LAN traffic with false host announcement frames. You can start the download process here.

BWAdmin 4.3

Submitted by: figgs @ 04:20 PM | Sunday, May 28, 2000 | (url: )

Poker sent this over about the new version of BWAdmin:


BWAdmin v4.3 is out and about. Mainly some fine tuning by Wizard, in response to suggestions from server admins and players. Check out the manual for more detail. I've emailed BWAdmin out to everyone I have registered as server admins, so check your mail, if you haven't received it then drop me a line.

That's all on BWAdmin for a while, barring anything screamingly obvious that needs doing. I'm going to do some more work on the supporting stuff (TribesRadio etc) and one or two other little projects for a while. Heh, that's the plan anyway....

New East Coast Server

Submitted by: Rayn @ 01:22 PM | Sunday, May 28, 2000 | (url: )

FSB-SPY let us know on the forums about a new East Coast server courtesy of 5150:

5150's Competition East Server | | (DS-3 OC-12) For those of you who don't know.. that lovable little ray of sunshine, who I refer to as RedDread.. has put up a new east coast server.

For those of you who had connection problems because you're using @home or RR to the old 5150e server, this is great news. This server is stable in ping 24/7!! My ping is pretty much like 40 on average.

So if you have the bad ping on the other server, hop on this one... the competition should be great soon enough.. when all those ping whores come out.
Here's the info for you lazies:
connect('216.250.231.24:28001');
[IP:216.250.231.24:28001:00]
Finally, some love for us east coasters.

Crunchy Updates

Submitted by: figgs @ 08:12 PM | Saturday, May 27, 2000 | (url: )

Crunchy e-mailed me earlier with these updates:

I got several requests to abbreviate the team names that run off the edge of the HUDs. I've added a facility to do this, you need to add to TribesconfigCrunchyObjectiveAbbreviations.cs any tribes that you want to be abbreiviated. I've included the standard tribe names and some European tribes. I've added an option to Objective HUD to change the initial value of the dropped flag timer, this can be different for different mods or servers. I now get the value for the F&R timer from the server messages. Don't forget
to get the latest ObjectiveTrak, both of the hud updates need the latest version.

If you play on any BWAdmin servers you'll be pleased to know I've fixed ObjectiveTrak to get the winning score correctly.

Submitted by: Rayn @ 05:05 PM | Saturday, May 27, 2000 | (url: )

Cheater wrote in from Chicago via AOL to let us know the status of UVALAN2:

"UVALAN2 is filling up incredibly fast if you have any intention of attending please sign up. We are halfway to our 120 player goal on the third day of registration. We have an online registration form at http://www.cheaterswayside.com. Just fill out the form and check off the method of payment that you will most likely use (check or creditcard). You do not have to pay at the time that you register but we will be taking the first 120 paid players. I will see if I can line up more connections if we reach our limit early and add players as space provides. We are totally overwhelmed by the support from this incredible community."

Cross it off your Christmas List

Submitted by: Rayn @ 07:20 PM | Friday, May 26, 2000 | (url: )

Dave Georgeson revealed in a recent thread on the TPBB that we can expect to see Tribes 2 a bit earlier than a lot of folks have been anticipating.

You heard it here first...
FALL.

Precisely.
Well, thanks Dave. Now, how about telling us when the beta starts?

Live Broadcasts Get Attention

Submitted by: Rayn @ 07:16 PM | Friday, May 26, 2000 | (url: )

Its good to see that the Tribes community is doing something original and cool in its live game broadcasts, and its great to see that people are taking notice. Tycho, from Penny Arcade, was discussing the idea of video game spectators and what not and got pointed in the direction of WSBN and TSN. Check out this little news blurb:

"[WSBN and TsN] are (for all intents and purposes) the equivalent of "radio broadcasts", but they detail the play-by-play action in a good match of Tribes! I'm downloading some games in their Archival sections (because no games are being covered at this very moment), but both sites are laid out well enough that you could easily find a game-time and hook up to their streamin', steamin' digital audio. I've heard that the announcer called "WarWitch" makes a living as a professional disc-jockey, I'm looking forward to checking out some of his stuff. One of them just finished downloading: Pre-game commentary, good sound mixing... This is very cool, and clearly a labor of love. Nice work there, WW "
