Tribesplayers offers the following advice regarding the Tribes v1.11 patch:
1) The new patch installer "Wise" is allowing partial installs of the wrong patches. Once the wrong patch is applied the users will need to install from the CD. Users need to verify the version number they have and which one they are getting before applying any patch.

Planet Starsiege has posted some more E3 pictures taken by Rifter. Rifter was actually nice enough to send me to pictures when he got back from E3 saying he would wait a while to post them, but i figure since he was going to anyways we'll just hold on to them for later. In the meantime you can check out Rifters new gallery here.

The folks over at ZDnet's Gamespot got the chance to play Tribes 2 hands on at E3. Here's a bit of what they had to say:
The gameplay takes place on a number of different planets that will have their own unique appearances, topography, weather, and in some cases, natural disasters. We didn't get to see all the new weather effects, but were told that the completed game would feature snow, rain, lightning storms, quicksand, and more. Fortunately, we did get to see some of the new weapons in action. The newly-revamped disc thrower packs an even bigger punch than before, while the deadly new rocket launcher can fire a tracking smart missile that skims the terrain with unerring accuracy toward a foe that's hundreds of meters away. The only catch with the smart missile is that you'll need an advance scout to spot your enemy for you, and to keep him in sight while the missile is tracking. We watched as a missile was fired toward a low-flying vehicle that tried to swoop behind a nearby hill for cover - but the missile maneuvered just the same, and smashed the vehicle anyway.The article is general, but it provides some interesting new details on the game. You can read it in it's entirety here.

Thanks to Cowboy for dropping by our irc channel, #tribalwar, to give us the news:
OK. TribesIP 3.5 is finally done! I've added some cool features, like Individual Server Query, GameServerList.cs search, and a few other things! This one requires mIRC 5.7 or 5.71, and is a breeze to install and use! I have had a LOT of people test this out, I'd like to thank them all for their help -- even though I don't remember hearing of any bug reportsYou can grab this very usefull mIRC script at CB's site, or you can grab it directly from his TribesIP Page.
