  What's New In The Year 2006?
 
Tuesday, October 17, 2006 by Slot Zero

All of the quake servers hosted on the St. Louis (quake.shmack.net) machine experienced some downtime due to the physical server being relocated into another facility.  The server has been successfully relocated, however, there may be minor outages of service throughout the week.

  • Added a vote-backpacks command which allows you to toggle the dropping of backpacks on death.  This is a feature request for Bam.
  • Some rocket arena maps have only 1 spawn spot and players were forced into the observer lounge.  [fixed]
  • I added the commands faststart, lock, and unlock for match mode.  The faststart command will toggle between a 60 second and 20 second countdown timer.  The lock and unlock commands are used during a match to allow or deny more players from entering the game.
  • If you disconnect during a match in match mode, you can reconnect to the server and type ready to rejoin with your previous stats.
  • The gas grenades weren't always working.  Thanks to Zop for pointing this out.  [fixed]
  • Players who are idle for more than five minutes will be considered away from keyboard.  A gold AFK will appear by their name in +showscores and GLQuake HUD.
  • If you go into observer mode when your frags are less than zero, they will be reset to zero.
  • The modes arena, match, practice, and normal cannot be combined.  Voting for one of these modes disables the current mode.

  • The haste rune had no effect on lavagun.  Thanks to Zop for pointing this out.  The flames now shoot straight instead of fall to ground when yielding the haste rune.
  • If you killed a player who activated divine wind during the last 0.5 seconds of the countdown, he wouldn't explode.  Thanks to Zop for pointing this out.  [fixed]
  • The cloak rune's sonar feature shouldn't detect environmental protection suit/rune holders.  Thanks to Zop for pointing this out.  [fixed]
  • If you tried to fire a rocket and toss a fire trap at the same time, your rocket would explode when it made contact with the flame projectile.  [fixed]
  • Added vote-armor-drop.  This toggles the ability to drop armor on death.
  • Fixed a typo that caused the server to crash on some engines.  Thanks to Sputnikutah for reporting the crash.
  • The mod is now compatible with ProQuake's pq_smoothcam feature.  Thanks to Yelllow #5 for helping me test this.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable April Fools' Day!


Saturday, April 01, 2006 by Slot Zero


It's Official April Fools' Day:

As of 12:01 AM EST, I am taking down the website and quake server.  The Rune Quake project is being taken over by Sputnikutah, who is also the author of Qrack (a JoeQuake variant).  I originally asked IEEE 802.11, but he turned it down saying, "There is no way I could ever fill your shoes, Slot."   I appreciate such a nice comment and completely understand.

When the servers go down, they'll be replaced with a new mod called Zop the Fish.  Zop, the author of Zopmod and Zopmod2 has been working on this mod for about 7 years and is nearly ready to complete it.  He's going to run it a few weeks until Sputnik can get things in order.

The website is going to be taken over by Steve, the founder of QuakeOne.Com.  More than likely it will just forward over to his website, but he said he might put up an extensive tribute to Singe, the inspiration for Rune Quake as we know it.  Steve has only been designing websites for about 3 weeks though, so he said it could take a while.

I would like to thank everyone for being so supportive of Rune Quake and for sticking with it after so many years.  It has been a huge part of my life but unfortunately real life catches up with you some time.  The good news is that after all these years, a new law has been introduced to allow me and my life mate to finally get married.  He too has been very supportive over the years and has spent a lot of nights alone in bed while I hack away at the computer.  I've been trying to teach him how to play Quake, you might have seen him around using the names "RoCk HaRd", "PenDragon", or "Yellow#5".

God bless you all,
