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.

New Goods from Writer

Submitted by: Rayn @ 11:31 AM | Thursday, June 15, 2000 | (url: )

Seems Writer took some time out from coding his upcoming release Gilbert Goodmate to do some script work. He's been working hard the last few months to make massive updates to his script pack, and now you can help test it out:

"My pack has entered the open beta stage today.

There isn't much documentation, and there are still quite a few things
I plan to add, and I might even redesign the whole shebang again...but
there is plenty of new stuff and it's pretty darn stable (just a bit
unfriendly to install, perhaps?).

The news at my site has a bit more info on some of the new stuff:

Take note Writer fans.

UVALaN2 Activities

Submitted by: Rayn @ 03:21 AM | Thursday, June 15, 2000 | (url: )

UVALaN2 is coming! Along with all the eatery-franchise-sponsorship goodness, we plan to play games - a lot of game - on a local area network even. Thus, the folks from UVALAN are searching for your input on scheduled activities. z2.old_skul posted looking for feedback and outlined some tentative events:

  • a 10 vs 10 CTF Tournament, bracketed
  • a 1 vs 1 dueling tournament, bracketed
  • a Hunter tournament - complete with showdown!
  • a Rabbit tourney, also with showdown!
  • UT DM competition
  • Q3A DM competition
Some ideas have already been tossed around, including a round of Pin-the-tail-on-the-FugaZni and spin the bottle, featuring Cheater's HOs. (We're not talking about Heavy Offense, kids) Personally, I look forward to the inebriation marathon. Offer your gift of wisdom on the forums here.

Dev Team Diversion Delayed

Submitted by: Rayn @ 12:28 AM | Thursday, June 15, 2000 | (url: )

For those anticipating the friendly match between the webmonkeys of doom and the dev team, we've had to move the match to next week. Got Milk? wrote us with the info:

I'm afraid I have bad news, but alpha scheduling has come up and bit us in the ass. We are going to be working like circus monkeys here for a good while, so I'm going to have to ask that we postpone the match until next week.

Sorry about this, but Tribes 2 takes precedence. We still want to play, hopefully we can get this done next week.
Hey of course! Tribes 2 takes precedence - RHIL.

Cheater's Wayside and Applebee's Team Up

Submitted by: Rayn @ 12:11 AM | Thursday, June 15, 2000 | (url: )

Just got this release from old_skul - this owns:

Team Applebee’s players take note! UVALAN 2, the amazing Midwestern and eastern Tribes event taking place in Charlottesville, Virginia July 27-30, is now officially sponsored by international restaurant chain Applebee’s. Applebee’s will be supplying prizes such as t-shirts, meal and dessert tickets.

“At the last UVALAN, the turnout was incredible,” claimed organizer Tom “Cheater” Szabo. “We had a lot of people head down to Applebee’s for dinner and drinks. When they returned – they came back as Team Applebee’s!”

Notable Team Applebees players included TA|Cutewaitress, TA|BabyBackRibs, and TA|SpecialSauce, all of whom were at the original UVALAN. They, and 10 other LAN partiers, formed a team of friends at the LAN and were renowned at the Tribes (and eating) skills.

“We’re expecting a great party this time around,” said Cheater. “We’ve got a huge hotel ballroom with plenty of tables, refreshments, power for your systems, vendor booths, computer and peripheral rental, and all the support you’ll need to have a great time at the LAN. We have over 150 registered participants at this time.”

Tom “Cheater” Szabo is the owner and operator of Cheater’s Wayside, the internet’s most popular Tribes server, and is the organizer of East-Coast and Midwestern LAN events such as the UVALAN series. More information is available at http://www.cheaterswayside.com.

Applebee's International, Inc., headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas, develops, franchises and operates casual dining restaurants in 49 states and eight international countries, under the trademark of Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar®. More information is at http://www.applebees.com.
Damn skippy! I think that says it all, now get your asses to UVALaN2!
