August 2000 News Archive

August 28, 2000, 10:42 am

Goodness. Summer draws to a close, and we get sloppy. Sorry. Development of the various b.org pages continues apace, but we've been neglecting the front page. Shame, shame.

Marathon

The Archives continue to grow, with new submissions, and older maps that never made it in. Keep an eye on that New Stuff page!

The Open Source project has heated up, with an (almost) port to BeOS, a Mac SDL version, and an almost complete file abstraction (which will make porting to different operating systems easier). A new site segment, called Reference Info, has been created to house technical tidbits. Go see what the fuss is about!

Myth

Wow. Myth news galore. New sites, new films, and hey... a new newsie! Welcome to Gawyn, who joins the Myth news team. A rejuvenated site!

Speaking of Myth news... looks like the World Cup 2000 has ended, with the Street Fighters defeating Ginslingers for the title. Congrats, Street Fighters!

Oni

Oni Central has news of some funky new (well, sort of new) anime art from the folks at Rockstar. Nice looking stuff! (And for those who need it, the FTP archives of old Oni material are (mostly) back online. MP3s and movies, here.)

Halo

HBO's been cooking recently with Xbox news... not all of it good, for PC gamers. Swing by and take a look!

August 24, 2000, 11:09 pm

Due to some bizarreness at @Home, a couple of our sites might be hard to reach at the moment: OrbitalArm, and the ftp side of Oni Central. We hope to have these problems cleared up in the next day or so. Apologies for the downtime.

One tip: Never EVER join in on a 7+ cram in a Honda Civic, ESPECIALLY when it's Claude Errera who will "sit on your lap" (read: break several ribs). Walk to the subway or something.

The Big House would like to welcome another inmate... Portal of Sigma joins the ranks. This one's well on its way to completion... a demo should be forthcoming. Screenshots are pretty promising... we can't wait! Welcome aboard, guys.

Marathon, Marathon, everywhere... folks are STILL finding Marathon sounds in new places, and telling the Marathon's Story page about it. Also, some interesting 2001 parallels. As always, a good read!

The newest build of Aleph One has tweaked overhead map code... stop by the Source for more info!

(We're working on providing him an alternative to real life, so that he won't have to sacrifice his BS time. So far, we've been unsuccessful. Upon reflection, this is a good thing.)
