I noticed over at Euro-tribesplayers that PCgameworld.com has released Tribes 2 wallpaper by Sierra. The design comes from a June Tribes 2 advertisement in the gaming magazine PC Games. Check it out, and then download it here.

We posted yesterday about the Gameslice interview with Dave Georgeson. What we didn't mention is that Gameslice also has the first screenshots we've seen of both the mortar and rocket launcher weapons. Check them out:

Pubknight debuts on the Tribes Shoutcast Network tonight with his newly renamed radio show: Pubknight's Open Bar. The show starts at 9PM EST/6PM PST on TsN. You can connect to TsN by visiting their website or by stopping into #TSN for the connection details. Pub just finished telling me that he finished a new intro for the show which he describes as 'whacky'. It should be a good show as always so don't forget to tune in tonight.

Cheater wrote in to let us know about some exciting new changes that are keeping Cheater's Wayside on the edge:
"Cheater's Wayside has been revamped with installation of BWAdmin and the addition of the new maps from Dox. Check it out if you get a chance. The new maps are client side too, so go pick them up at http://dox.xlr8.com.au/ before you start humpin' my leg. Also be sure to get your reservation in for UVaLAN 2 at http://www.cheaterswayside.com. We have a limited number of seats left so I guess as long as the signup keeps working we'll keep accepting reservations.Major thanks to Cheater for all his efforts. I'm working on getting myself to UVALaN 2, if you haven't already done so, check it out.

Actiontrip.com has posted a brief but meaty preview of Tribes 2. Here's a tasting:
Tribes 2 is boldly heading forward, and in a couple of different directions… It is a new trendsetter in terms of online gameplay, as well as some built-from-scratch 3D graphics. People from Dynamix are bragging about the completely new graphics engine in Tribes 2 that adds so much more to the game's pivotal background settings --- the wide-open spaces. It does so by dishing massive mountain peaks, treacherous canyons, deep water, and realistic weather effects (including wind, rain, snow, fog and even lighting strikes) in all their 3D goodness. What also impressed me while watching the actual gameplay were the seeming less transitions between the outdoor and indoor environments, and the smooth physics models, so important to the overall feeling of the game.The article features the usual nine screenshots from E3, and is overwhelmingly positive. Want to read the rest of it? Over here.

In response to a chain of questions posted on our forums, Dave Georgeson popped in yesterday and offered the following answers:
The security of the CD key probably won't be an issue. It's like 50 characters long and encrypted. I don't have all the details at hand (and wouldn't share the particulars anyway), but it's a good system.For the questions themselves, or to add your own and hope Dave answers you, too, visit the forum thread
