Patch Problems?

Submitted by: Calliope @ 11:24 PM | Monday, May 22, 2000 | (url: )

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.
2) The patches are looking for a number of files such as Release.txt. If you do not have this file on your client the patches will not apply. I believe this is being manually deleted due to the large number of readme files we are installing(a new one with each patch).

Yet More E3 Goodness

Submitted by: Ratorasniki @ 09:32 PM | Sunday, May 21, 2000 | (url: )

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.

BWAdmin Updated

Submitted by: Calliope @ 06:29 PM | Sunday, May 21, 2000 | (url: )

I received this in an email today from Barrysworld's Poker:

As promised, BWAdmin has been updated yet again. This time it has contributions from Wizard (author of Team Aerial Combat) and Mental Trousers, both of the TeamPlayers Guild, as well as more from myself.

I believe BWAdmin is possibly the most complete, configurable and
interesting BASE admin mod now. It should seriously be considered by anyone wanting greater control over their servers. It has an extensive feature list, great manual and is an almost indispensible tool for leagues, match admins and players alike.

There are also additional fixes for problems in the vanilla (base) version of TRIBES in this release. No more running over the CTF flag and only returning your own (which was already there) for a start!
BWAdmin is only available to server admin right now, but Barrysworld is welcoming all inquiries.

For all the details of the update, click here.

T2: Hands-on Review

Submitted by: Calliope @ 02:07 PM | Sunday, May 21, 2000 | (url: )

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.

TribesIP Updated

Submitted by: Ratorasniki @ 01:21 PM | Sunday, May 21, 2000 | (url: )

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 reports
You can grab this very usefull mIRC script at CB's site, or you can grab it directly from his TribesIP Page.
