Dave Dave Dave, Dave Dave!

Ok, so its not funny unless you've seen Being John Malkovitch (sp?). Actually its not really funny anyways..but Dave is at it again (as if he ever stopped ) and is giving us some interesting info in the STILL alive and kicking 'Hey!' thread:

Anguish...no...it will 5u><0rz more for you if we don't put you on the beta, so you'll have to watch from outside. *grin*
Zero-X...new fiction is definitely coming for T2, but it will be pertinent to the game. Not reams and reams of non-specific text like we've done in the past.

Bloody...no CG intros. They're a chronic waste of effort and cash. I'd rather spend the money on the game.

Secret Squirrel...spawn camping should be all but impossible this time around. There are literally hundreds of spawn points that are randomly selected each time you respawn.

We should be able to release info on the other new weapons sometime in the next couple of weeks.

YoYo...the broadcasting stuff is still under construction. Suffice it to say that there will be many more options available this time around.

Oberiko...the AWAC scout looks like the regular scout, but has a special device mounted below it.

Oberiko...a script filter is a good idea, but I'm not sure how possible it is since most scripts are client-side. I'll mention it though.

Oberiko...heh...a double/triple barrel chaingun would be extremely potent. Yes, it would be fun, but it might actually be too powerful. We're still playing with gun combos though. We'll see...

TalRasha...only lights can use cloaking packs.

Wookie...the new inventory stations rock. We'll post screens of them when we get the model and effect into the game. (Not done yet.)

Oberiko...Incite magazine has the Tribes 1 cover disk. And Lights are NOT slower in T2 than they are in T1.
----------------
Heh. No worries, Zero. You'll like the new stuff also. I'm pretty sure of that.
----------------
Alpha goes well. Tons and tons of work to do still, but it goes well.
I'll talk to you folks soon. I got up early to scan the forums, but I need to head into the office now. Adios, amigos
For more info, and for the above comments to make sence, check out the thread.

Waypoint Manager Update

Submitted by: figgs @ 11:19 AM | Sunday, June 18, 2000 | (url: )

Crunchy sent this e-mail over about updates to his Waypoint Manager script:


I've updated Waypoint Manager in response to some requests. I've added a new menu which has all the waypoint commands in it, so that you could use just one key for the script. I've added an option to use a proper waypoint clear, the caveat is that it forces a team say. To get around this the script filters out the team say, it also filters out the message "!AP Off" produced by MrPoops AutoPoint. For some reason the filter doesn't work for your client, only for messages from other players, so you will still see youself saying a blank message. This method avoids the flickering compass that has
been annoying ppl.

Drinkers Practice Mod v1.0 released

Submitted by: Rayn @ 03:44 AM | Saturday, June 17, 2000 | (url: )

Kahlua sent the word on some new goods:

"I realize that Freak put out that route mod. But me being me, I had toout-do it. This is a mod that I've had for the past 7 months, but kept itprivate to my tribe. (Made it back in the Neon Sins days --Drink|Vodka (aka :|NS|: Cybertron) gave me the idea. This mod startedout as mod that allowed you to place beacons on the ground and teleportto them. Was very limited. But over time I added other features such as:full base repairing, automatic turret setups, full weapon loadout customization,armor selection, backpack selection, visible chaingun bullets (great to practiceyour aim with), instantly-returning flags, infinite cap limits, base destruction,turret destruction, menu-driven teleporting, etc. Check it out athttp://www.tribalwar.com/kahluaI guarantee you won't be disappointed. Enjoy it!"

Kahlua's Route Mod..coming soon!

Submitted by: figgs @ 11:59 AM | Friday, June 16, 2000 | (url: )

After getting flooded with PM's from tards like me, Kahlua has finally decided to release his uber-r33t "route mod." Features include:


Full Weapons Loadout selection (when you teleport), the teleports are based off beacon locations.. you place a beacon, boom, another teleport option, fully-automated turret setups, full base repair in a menu option. If you teleport with flag, it returns it in 2 seconds or so, fully heals you when you teleport, etc..

Straight from Kahlua. That should be coming very soon, he has to polish it up first.

Skeet-back Smack Pack II

Submitted by: Rayn @ 03:33 AM | Friday, June 16, 2000 | (url: )

Dynamix's own Diamondback stopped by the forums to request some community help. He's putting together a sequel to the Skeet-back Smack Pack, and is looking for some hard to find stuff, here's the post:

Mitch and I have narrowed some specific choices down that we "require" for the upcoming Skeet-back Smack Pack II.
We have been unable to find these .wav files anywhere and hopefully you, loyal Tribal War forumites, can help us out here.

I challenge you to collect the following .wav files for the next SkeetBack Smack Pack.

* Anything said by Ben Stein. Bonus points if it's vaguely game-related.

* From Mystery Men: The Sphinx saying "You dress in the manner of a male prostitute!"
The Spleen saying "Shilent but deadly!"
and maybe some apropos quotes from Mr. Furious.

* Some good Regis quotes, just to annoy everyone.

* More FRINK!

* From The Sixth Sense: "Silence, village idiot!" (said at the end of the movie, at the school play--it's Skeet's new comeback to "No soup for you!")

If you've got 'em or know where we can find 'em, email us at dave.meddish@dynamix.com or mitch.shaw@dynamix.com.

Thanks in advance, and godspeed.
I'm sure they'll be appreciative, so do a brother a favor.

I announce my own stuff

Submitted by: Rayn @ 03:11 AM | Friday, June 16, 2000 | (url: )

.. and it makes me feel cool. At least I'm not talking about myself in the third person this time. Anyway, I just finished off a new script inspired by my updates not too long ago. Here's the blurb:

ReturnAnnounce is an extension of my FlagReturn HUD. It will announce to your team at a set trigger time when the friendly/enemy flag will automatically return back to base. Very useful in coordinating either a second grab, or letting your team know to get back to their flag defense positions. Includes flood protection that will prevent repeat messaging - that is, if it works.
Feel free to give it a try at Rayn's Bucket O' Tribes .. or should I say My Bucket O' Tribes.
