Old buddies reunite with Tribes

Submitted by: Eisenhower16 @ 01:13 AM | Friday, July 9, 2010 | (url: http://www.tribes...)

Not too long ago Sierra shocked fans of the futuristic shooter when they turned the master server off, for good. Die hard fans have made it possible to still play Tribes and Tribes 2 online. Now the time has come for the ps2 port of T2, Aerial Assault. TAA was ran off of the T2 master server, so they were terminated at the same time. But thanks to OnlineConsoles, the game has a new master server in which they created and host on their own. If you were ever affiliated with TAA communities, you may have received a mass email which was sent to a couple hundred register users. The email contained the date and time of a Tribes Aerial Assault reunion game. This match will be held on Tuesday July 13th at 8pm EST. If you need more information regarding the match, head on over to www.TribesAA.net and if you're having trouble connecting to the new master server you can try www.OnlineConsoles.com

InstantAction Brings Tribes To Your Web Browser

Submitted by: BugsPray @ 01:05 PM | Tuesday, March 17, 2009 | (url: http://kotaku.com...)

"When browser-based gaming destination first announced GarageGames' Fallen Empires: Legions, people immediately started calling it a browser-based Tribes. InstantAction would rather we call it the spiritual successor, especially now that they've got an official web-based version of Tribes on the way. The new web-based version of Tribes will feature enhanced graphics, thanks to InstantAction's powerful browser-based gaming tools, along with better modding options.

Visitors to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next week will be able to get their hands on a playable version of Tribes, while learning how InstantAction managed to deliver an updated version of the game in web browser format.

[QW Mod]Triabal Wars - Two new videos released

Submitted by: Shadow(of)Death @ 09:56 PM | Sunday, March 15, 2009 | (url: http://www.twars....)

For those who don't check tribes talk, Arcanox recently released two new videos.

Ok, sorry for the delay. There was a bit of back and forth getting these video files captured. Unfortunately the fellow who did these for me forgot to max the quality settings for the game, and there's some differences when some of the visual elements are scaled back.

Nothing very fancy, but at least I have an encoding format worked out that'll deliver better quality videos in the future:

Training Site

Submitted by: Bloodsong @ 11:16 AM | Thursday, February 12, 2009 | (url: http://www.gamerd...)

There are people on the internet who wish to keep the Shifter Tribes alive. They are providing a training site for the noobs, returning players, and players from other mods who wish to play Tribes. The perspective trainee should be instructed to read through the site, or at the very least watch all the video's 1st.
Then they can request Tribes, Ventrilo, and personal Training, etc..... at the web site providing the training.
