Tribes Gala 2000

Submitted by: Ratorasniki @ 01:02 PM | Thursday, June 8, 2000 | (url: )

Tribes Gala 2000 has a pre-announcement (assuming thats a word) with some info about...well..TG2K in our forums. Heres a bit:

I just couldn't wait any longer. I know the site isn't finished and you'll probably be pissed at that, but I gotta get something out to you guys or I'm gonna burst. This isn't the official announcement, but a special pre-announcement for all my little TribalWar bears. It's just basic information and like I said not fully-official, but enough to wet your tastebuds as to what to expect that fine weekend of August 11-13th.
You can check out the rest right here including the required what the hell is it?, when is this little party?, and the always informative dare I ask where? bits of info.

Screaming Fist Update

Submitted by: Calliope @ 11:39 AM | Thursday, June 8, 2000 | (url: )

For those of you who don't know, Screaming Fist is a TRIBES Total Conversion, which means a total overhaul of the game that results in what is, essentially, a completely new game. New weapons, new gear, new maps, etc .. And for those of you who do know, they're still here, including our own beloved Ratorasniki. The following news was posted on the Screaming Fist Website this morning by Hosed:

Hey Gang! As many of you may be wondering, yes we're still here.

Even more then that, I've come back to help out with the next beta. We've got some cool new features in line and lots of bug fixes. First and formost, my goal is to make SF fun. In that vain we will be adding 2 new items. The Grasshopper pack, a buyable jet pack based on an experimental device in the 50s, and a Mech Suit, based on experiments in the 60s.

We've also got another map in the works, thanks to Grym, and we may have some more models as well, thanks to PhantomStranger.

Also, I'm seeing about moving the site to TribalWar. Stomped has been less then a good host. Hell you can't even find a link to SF anywhere on their sites. Anyways, that's the latest.
For questions, comments or to download Screaming Fist, visit their site above, or click here.

That, and other memorable quotes from the man, the insomniac, Dave G. from Dynamix, are posted right here on our very own UBB.

Actually a lot of the thread contains some neato info about things like skin downloading - theres too much to list here, so go check it out at the 5 page and growing thread entitled "Hey!" right here. I suggest if you have any questions you ask them now, while hes sleep deprived

Tribal Art Wanted

Submitted by: Rayn @ 12:07 PM | Wednesday, June 7, 2000 | (url: )

Attention all you graphic artists out there. We're looking for Tribal War banners for use as links and one to use for our UGO Banner rotation. We figured we'd open this up to community submission to get a bit of a new flavor in the art here. There are two parts to this 'contest' if that's what you want to call it.

1) 468 x 60 pixel ad: We need a Tribal War banner to advertise our site across all the other UGO sites. It can be either JPG or GIF, but file size should be no more than 15-20kb. We can only submit one, so we'll pick our favorite. The person who we choose can get their pick of an @tribalwar.com e-mail address (forwarder or POP3) or a custom title on the forums. Nothing fancy, but its what we got.

2) Smaller link icons: These are for distribution to other sites who'd like to link to us. We're looking for a smaller icon here, about 100-200px wide. We'll choose our favorites and put them on a page with the artists name under each one. We'll also post 468x60 runner-ups on this page with their name.


You can grab the font we use here on Tribal War here (TTF, 30kb) for use in your work. It can be animated or not, your pick, just remember that animated GIFs are larger than their static counterparts.

If you're interested in submitting some art, please post it to this thread: http://www.tribalwar.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/003215.html or e-mail it to rayn@tribalwar.com. All submissions will become property of Tribal War and winners will be decided by the Tribal War staff, with the input of the community taken into account. Thanks!

T2 Preview and Screenshots

Submitted by: Calliope @ 09:16 PM | Tuesday, June 6, 2000 | (url: )

I caught from Tribes 2 Players that Tucows has posted a preview of Tribes 2. It looks pretty much the same as all the others, but includes three new screenshots from Sierra that are incredible. Here's the obligatory snippit:

My favorite game of E3. This may be saying a lot, but Dynamix is at it again. Innovating the on-line gaming experience. Not only are the graphics well done, but it has many more features that really impressed me. The weapons get a big face-lift, the turrets are improved to add more than just one type of gunnery and the sounds and smoke plums are amazing. I can go on and on, but to see what I am talking about, you'll have to get the video and see for yourself.
For the whole thing, click here.

Your Daily Dose of Dave

Submitted by: Calliope @ 12:57 PM | Tuesday, June 6, 2000 | (url: )

In no particular order, here are an assortment of replies by Dave Georgeson to questions asked on our forums (The link after each quote is to the relevant thread):

We don't know the voices yet. We still have to do the casting call. But eliminating the WOOhoos isn't on our agenda. heh. We'll see when we get to beta...how's that? [here -calli]

*********

I don't believe that I ever actually said "Glide is Dead".
But it is.
We're OpenGL. [here -calli]

**********

Doh! Emilee...my bad. I meant picks up the flag to go cap it.
And, writer...they may not have separate skins...but they'll most likely have hardcoded mellodious names like "TeamABot1" or something really obvious like that.
Okay, okay...we'll think of something better than that. Give me a break. It's early. ; ) [It makes sense in the thread context. Promise. here. -calli]
Hey, if Dave said it, it's gotta be important. Or entertaining, or both. As always, thanks Dave!

Submitted by: Calliope @ 10:26 PM | Monday, June 5, 2000 | (url: )

The current issue of Incite magazine has a special Tribes/Tribes2 feature, complete with training and strategy guides, review and preview. Check out the lead:

Tribes was the first game to take full advantage of what team-based multiplayer gaming had to offer. Now it looks as if Tribes 2 will take multiplayer gaming even higher into the stratosphere. Check out our exclusive screenshots and inside scoops from the mouths of the developers themselves.
Check it out here. If nothing else, we can expect the issue to draw some fresh meat...I mean, some new players...into Tribes.

UVALAN2: Going, going...

Submitted by: Calliope @ 10:05 PM | Monday, June 5, 2000 | (url: )

I received this in an e-mail from z2.old_skul, UVALAN2 admin, regarding the July event:

Cheater of Cheater's Wayside announced that registrations for UVALAN 2 have passed 100 attendees, with well over a third of those already paid and confirmed to attend the conference. We're rapidly approaching critical mass with the LAN party attendance. At this rate registrations will soon be filled so we're encouraging people to register and pay early.
To register for UVALAN2 (where rumor has it you can hump Rayn's leg all you like), visit www.cheaterswayside.com. Schedule and Rideshare sections with tools to help you get to the LAN have also been opened there.
