August 9th, 2005Quake Expo 2005We'll have a booth for QExpo. I don't know what we'll put up there yet, but we'll do something. If you have any ideas, post them on the forum. DPCon 2005 PicturesDPcon pictures are now up on the DPCon 2005 page. I've had them up for a while, but I never bothered to update the news. Sorry about that. July 20th, 2005DPCon This WeekendThat's right! Just a couple more days! I've updated the DPCon 2005 info page with more detailed directions to Atlantis Gaming Center. Also, it looks like Calrathan is going to be snagging some EA games for prizes. The trophies came in yesterday, and the shirts are being delivered Friday. I'm still working on getting the player model in a usable state, but it's almost there. Lots of last minute stuff, but it's going to rock. I'll try to take more pictures this time. July 1st, 2005For Those Not Planning to Attend DPCon...This is the type of new stuff you'll be missing out on:
More realistic water, skeletal animation system, new game mode(s), new media, and of course tournaments with prizes and other general LAN party mayhem are all part of the game plan. Perhaps there will be some other sneak peeks and surprises as well.
DPCon is less than a month a way - July 23-24. More info here. Signup here. May 24th, 2005Two Months Until DPCon!I just went to an all-nighter at Atlantis Gaming Center's new location. I think this place is going to work out very well for this year's DPCon. Also, bring your Magic the Gathering and other cards of that nature if you're into trading and whatnot. Plenty of people at Duelers to do that with. New Model System in the WorksWe're moving up from the crappy, wobbly-vertex MD2 format to something much nicer. The new format uses a skeletal system similar to current-gen games like Half-Life 2 and DooM 3. We're also going to be remaking all of the models with much higher polygon counts. 3dblu is helping us out with a new player model. If you want to see its progress and/or post some constructive criticisms, visit this thread. Keep in mind this is still a work in progress!
