what's not new at bungie.org

March 2001 Archived News

Sat, March 31, 2001  6:02 AM Oooohh, that Cat...

It's not often that a major new Marathon site appears... but this one's been a long time coming. Evihcra, the home of the Mill, the largest Myth file archive in existence, has just brought the Lh'owon Ar'kives to life. I'll let Gary 'the Battle Cat' Simmons, PR rep for Evihcra, tell it:

Yow!

Good news for Marathon gamers everywhere! Marathon is entering a new age. It has passed the test of time in the hearts and minds of its loyal fans and it deserves a place of honor. In an attempt to provide just such a pedestal, Evihcra.com, in cooperation with Bungie.org, is opening the Lh'owon Ar'kives. Enter the ancient Citadel of Lh'owon once again. This time you are not on a mission for Durandal, but to plunder the Citadel's treasures and resources for your own reward and glory.

The Lh'owon Ar'kives is more than just another archive, it is a fully interactive, highly organized, and customizable online database COMMUNITY where you can present your own hard work to the world as well as submit reviews of the work of others. This is the perfect place to get feedback on your Marathon creations. You have FULL PERSONAL CONTROL over your own gaming files. Submit them when you want, removing or replacing them as YOUR need arises. This site is designed to be very creator friendly. We are gaming authors ourselves, we built our "dream machine" for the love of gaming and now we want to let you in on it too.

Membership in Evihcra is absolutely FREE and only requires an easy registration process for full member benefits! Non-members may download any of the files as well as rate them for the community. Map makers of a posted archive get more than just a credit line, the archive description itself can link directly to their home page. Even the creators profile can link to their home page. There are various means for creators to exploit their work, and their presence with us.

What has 11 eyes, 28 fingers and 3 butts? A squad of Pfhor Troopers in a teleporter accident... but how would you know that answer unless you asked, and what better place to ask than in a public forum? Introducing the Marathon Forums where you can discuss the ins and outs of Marathon. Share your expertise with others, learn from the experts, or just make your voice heard.

In addition to the standard forum elements we provide:
  • Private Messaging
  • Online Polls posted by moderators
  • Find out who's online in the network and where.
  • Seamless integration into your Evihcra.com account.
  • Email reminders when people respond to your postings.
  • Forums available to creation groups (that qualify).
  • Full text string searches for ease of locating information.
  • Identification of recent threads and posts since your last log in.


Immortalize your work, download your next favorite Marathon map or shout out to the world! Visit the Lh'owon Ar'kives today at http://marathon.evihcra.com/

We apologise for the downtime, bungie.org was down since 1:30 AM EST due to problems beyond our control. Seems like we're back up again but we're unsure for how long. However, a probable long-term fix is in the works.

The first build of Aleph One for Mac OS X hits the streets today and it's, well, untested-- but still, a good first effort and well worth the (free) (small) download. Get it at Marathon Open Source.

Oni

Sat, March 24, 2001  1:07 AM Timberrrrrrrrrrrr...

Sorry for the recent bungie.org downtime, a tree caused some ruckus for the line between the servers and a tranmission station. Then some water made a cable conduit filled with water which fried. Sigh. Anyhow, we're back and regular updates will resume!

Oni

Oni for OS X - Oni Central has some news about this.

On the eleventh hour there will be death and death and people with large baskets of biscuits. KILL them, KILL them with life! Only life in a pure glass jar can vanquish them... BACK, BACK to Marathon's Story we go, in search of the lost QuickTime movies-- they must be found... THEY MUST BE FOUND...

Oni

We carried him forth unto OniShots wailing, "DAMN YOU ALL, DAMN YOU ALL", and then we dumped him into a volcano... and for our vigilance we were granted the new OniShots Quick Reference Card, and La Bongo Bongo came before us and spoke, "Gooooooo to OniShots and downlooooooooad this new card..." And so we did.

Halo

The lost movies! THEY HAVE BEEN FOUND-- and what is CONTAINED, CONTAINED within these glorious films?! Looks to be more Halo footage of a sort... what's this-- split-screen technology?!; magnificent indeed, indeed! HBO... because you need... to know...

Tue, March 20, 2001  9:08 PM EF = dork

Bungie's homepage has been updated with a new look and new content. It's kinda weird to look at a new page, seeing how I'm so used to the old look. But I digress, make sure to check out the new stuff including new Halo footage and new Letters to the Webmaster!

Warning! Opinion approaching rapidly! Shields at maximum... The Fifth Element may have been a lousy movie, but it looked great-- so the news that one of the film's storyboard guys is doing storyboards for Halo comes as good news indeed. This, and the latest batch of episodes of The Bungie Show at Marathon's Story-- get into it!

Halo

"Old news but still good news" indeed. In case you haven't seen it yet, the Baron has sent his Halo update for this week to the fine folks at Rampancy.net. Read all the analysis at HBO, along with tons more Halo impressions from around the 'net.

In case you haven't heard, Halo was shown at Microsoft's Gamestock event yesterday. A good bit of new media-- some screenshots and a brief movie-- was released, new previews began popping up 'round the 'net, and top gaming sites gave their impressions of the now-playable Halo. Head on over to HBO to catch up on what you may have been missing.

Mon, March 12, 2001  11:26 PM Lights out, Guerilla Radio!

If you're reading this and it's Tuesday, break out the champagne: Microsoft's Gamestock event starts today and Halo is slated to appear at the event. It's the first time we've seen Halo since last year's E3 and since that time, the game's engine has been rewritten to take advantage of the new per-pixel rendering technology found in nVidia's NV25 chipset (the graphics processor for the Xbox). Not excited yet? Go check out the Doom III video floating around the Internet-- amazing, eh? That's the power of per-pixel rendering, and now, Halo's got it-- and at Gamestock, we're finally going to see it! HBO will be reporting all Halo-related news as it happens throughout the day, so stay tuned to Bungie.org for the latest news and media.

Oni

You want updates? You got 'em! New for you at OniRes is an updated version of OniTools (updated for both Mac and Windows) and the latest version of the Oni Save Game Editor. If you haven't yet installed these must-have Oni editing utilities, you should.

Halo

Today, a Halo shirt appeared on the Bungie Webcam. I must have this shirt. If this shirt is not made available for sale, frogs will fall on Bungie Studios. I guarantee it. Those of you who saw the movie Magnolia cannot imagine the extent of my wrath. Songs will be written about the beauty of the pain that I will dish out if this shirt is not made available for sale.
