Urban Terror for ET goes down...

Posted by unblind
The guys over at urbanterror.net has decided NOT to port UrT 3.7 for ET. Instead they will focus on the developement of a new game called Mercenary-X.

From UrbanTerror.net:

In May, 2004 a group of Silicon Ice Development members including Twentyseven, RabidCow, Bladekiller, HighSea and myself created a company called Frozen Sand, LLC. This company was a separate entity from SID, which was a team only in name. At the time of formation, we began working on a concept demo called Mercenary-X using Enemy Territory. It was our hopes we would present it to game companies and potentially secure contract work or the chance to work on our own unique game.

Interview with Lanz

Posted by foonr

Domination Due to the recent surge of interest in one of ET's oldest mods, Powerball, I decided to have a chat with its creator se Lanz about life in general, the mod, and the upcoming release of Powerball mk2, named Domination . Here's a little extract:

So with this second chance, as you say, where would you ideally like to see this new named mod (Domination) go, or achieve?

Well, I would love for it to become a compliment for clans that want something different from the useful sw matches, and of course see it being actively played on public servers. I would also like to add more gametypes to it, I've got a couple of new ideas for the mod already.


Yeah, that's my own background and I've always loved competitive play.

48 Hours of ET for Cancer Research

genGz' 48 Hour ET Marathon Attempt In Aid Of Cancer Research UK!

You may remember about a year ago there was a vision, some might say a dream to play ET for 48 hours straight in aid of Cancer Research, led by one man alone: Tiberiumbo. The event was a massive success, raising close to £100, and considering it was staged with very little warning, people responded highly gratuitously. Tiberiumbo lasted a full 37 hours, citing inexperience and a massive sugar overdose as the reason.

Now though the event is going to be re-created, on a much grander scale. Scheduled to start Friday July 29th, and sponsored by #M8D, M8D International Radio, #uQ-Gaming and GamersDatabase.com, Tiberiumbo (now known as genGz) is hoping that this attempt will be even more successful than the previous go. What's more, as revealed in a recent interview with Komastu, genGz has been in 'training' to ensure he lasts the full 48 hours.

Round the clock live coverage and build up will be available on M8D radio, a huge 50 slot public teamspeak server provided by uQ, and a live webcam session will all be provided, in addition to exciting other prospects which will be revealed soon on the official website.

More information can be found at 48Hours, #xytogen and through the following sponsors:

SupplyDepot Final?

Posted by foonr

The mapper eb , who only recently released a third version of Supply Depot which included winter textures and several new additions, has moved to create, following comments by a WL supervisor, a fourth and what he hopes final spring version of the popular map designed for competition.

Gone are the H/A cabs at the CP, and so now the map should now play like SD2 with spawn fixes, and none of the FPS drops found in 3.

eb had this to say:
" I received an e-mail from wl|kropa, who is a supervisor for the ET-league @ www.warleagues.com , asking me to make a spring version of supplydepot3 for competition use but with the removal of the health and ammo cabinets. Well, after 7-8 hours of marking textures and terrain and testing skies and FPS.....here it is; Supplydepot spring/competition version. The same scripting fixes as I used in #3 and features some small additions along with a cosmetically enhanced terrain."
