Punk Buster Name Registry

Next week at QuakeCon 2002, Punk Buster will officially launch there Punk Buster Name Registry subscription hosting service. Here is a short description of what this service will do:

The optional PunkBuster Name Registry system covers both individual player names and group tags (clans, guilds, etc.). The overall goal is to boost serious players and organizations in the online communities built up around the games we support by providing a way, for players who are interested, to verify their online playing identities to other players and admins through the use of a secure password-based system built into PunkBuster. Each registration will be active for all PB-supported games simultaneously - separate registrations for each game will not be necessary.

They will kick off the start of the service by giving away free 6 month subscriptions to attendees of the tournaments. Unfortunately this service will not be available to Q3A players until the Punk Buster integrated Point Release is released. You can get the rest of the details at the Even Balance site.

Gundam Universe Interview

The mod team from Gundum Universe recently answered a few questions for FPS Mods. This mod is generating a lot of hype as it is a kick ass mod. Here is a little sample of what's in store with the interview:

Q. Why did you decide to use the Quake 3 Arena engine?
ReAn: Frankly, I had no say here.. but I'll tell you what, I wouldn't have joined on had it been any other engine ^_^.
Q. So far, what have you coded for the mod, and how much progress with the coding is there?
Bejitt: I started out by adding my custom class 'system' (hate that word really..), which has grown pretty large by now. The next big thing I did was begin working on a fairly 'complex' hit-detection/correct-firing-position system, which I have slowly brought our code over to use; The hit-detection part of it is still in the works. Somewhere in there I also improved our boosting system to the specifications I was given at that time
