Infinity welcomes careful drivers

So, it’s finally happened: Kazozza OZ-mantado is back on the air!

The modem arrived today and it’s working fine!
All I need now is a laptop and I’ll be fragging Strogg left, right and centre!

Peas and Rice!

Holy smokes! This site gets better every time I visit, fantastic work lads!

I have good news, I’m in the process of ordering a new modem (net connection to follow very shortly) and I have one or two more processes to complete before I order my shiny new laptop. Very excited! Soon I will have filled one of the gaping holes that was created the day I left the net… Huzzah!

Good news on the ET:QW for Linux front

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=865&num=1

If you can’t be bothered reading:

“…with what we’ve seen from the ET:QW private beta, we would expect to see the native Linux client within the next week.”

There’s also a screenshot of ET:QW running under Linux, with an ATI Mobility x1400 graphics card at (guessing) 1024×768. Since I have the x1600 I hopefully can get it running at this and better resolutions.

Hopefully us free-software-microsoft-hating-hippie-types can join you in some fragging soon!

Padman Screenshot

Hey all,

Just been looking at the screen shots on the World of Padman Website
www.worldofpadman.com

I think we should submit a team IPX Padman screen shot, what that is i don’t know right now…
My thinking is we submit Screen shots to a Forum link then have a vote about which one to submit…

What do you guys think and we should be able to vote the best screenshot to submit……

Scotland weather

I am currently sitting in my cousin’s lounge room in Glasgow (11:50 Zulu time), enoying the lovely weather, it’s been raining or about a day now and I’m loving it.
I’ve been in Scotland for a week an it’s only just started raining.
William Wallace has a damn big sword and a damn big memorial in Stirling!
I’m off to Hong Kong in about 8 hours, then back home in a few days.
It’s been a lovely marathon across 7 countries, but it’s almost over. I’ve seen so many castles and churches… you just can’t escape from them in Europe!

Contrary to popular disbelief, haggis is quite nice (when prepared properly).

I would like to take this opportunity to welome the new recruits to the IPX family, I’ll hopefully see you all online soon.

That’s all I’ve got for now, have to start packing.

Kazozza.

Slowly, it all comes together

Well it was nice that an ETQW client for Linux was confirmed, but my problem was whether or not I was going to be able to actually play it.

For a bit of background, my x1600 mobility should technically be up to the task, but Linux drivers for ATI cards have been historically….. shithouse. I was imagining myself matching Fuzz’s 20 FPS on 800×600 res, and just not really enjoying the game much.

But finally ATI have been able to release some Linux drivers with comparable performance to the windows version. In fact, there are reports of running Quake 4/Doom 3 (which use the same engine as ETQW) at up to 10x as fast as previous driver releases.

Nice.
