The revenge of the octopus
by DGhost @ [12:25 AM] June 27 2003

Nope, that's not the name of some James Bond movie but rather a new map from LordSquat himself! Octopus revenge has a lot of new idea in the map. First, the map is available in 5 different theme color. Simply download the first part of the .pk3 file which is the map and then download the second part .pk3 which will represent the color theme of the map (all instructions are given in the readme file). The map is a complete remake of Q3DM17/The longest yard. And the textures, talk about cell shading. The look of the map is like fragging in cartoon land! Very fun. A new map that bring, again, some new originality in Quake 3!

    Punkbuster Log Parser v1.0.16
    by DGhost @ [12:51 PM] June 03 2003

    I got an email from Aphextwin who informed me about the Punkbuster Log Parser. Lemme copy/paste you the description of this nice utility, since Aphextwin already type the text I'll simply paste it here:
    Punkbuster Log Parser v1.0.16

    This program scans punkbuster dedicated server logs for game violations, hacks, cheats, ogc, etc. and populates a list of valid violations in an easy to read grid display. The user can select to merge the displayed violations with their pbbans.dat master list, a zipped backup of your original pbbans.dat file is created prior to any merge, or they can generate a html page that can be sent to the guys at www.punksbusted.com for them to add your list to their ever growing master list of cheaters. Note that you will need to resgister with punksbusted but its easy and its free. The advantage of this program is you do not need to manually scan through hundreds if not thousands of lines of violations to find valid violations, this process is quick and easy and will save you an enormous amount of time. There is a screenshot of the program at http://www.gamerunners.com/images/punklog.jpg
    There we are!

Mostly fixing some small annoying bugs with with GTV in some TDM games.
