10. Re: Passwords/registration required galore Nov 4, 2001, 23:00  Frans 
 
Just leave the downloads for the userbase of those closed sites.
That applies to Shacknews, and this is indeed the first time I've added them to a mirror list, simply because they were the first mirror to go live and I wanted to provide more options for folks out there.

As for FilePlanet, there are a lot of people out there that already have registered there (either for free or as a subscriber) and they have a bunch of download servers, thus contributing to getting the file out to folks. Listing the link on our mirror pages is merely a small convenience to people wanting to use FP despite their registration.

We always list a reasonable number of other sites as well, so it's not like you're being forced to use FP, right?

So what countries use DSTime?
Basically all of Western Europe uses DST - except it's called Summertime. DST is turned on at the last Sunday in March (first Sunday in April for the US, ie. one week later) and turned off at the same last Sunday in October (fortunately, as it used to be the last one in September, which messed up my work schedule for a month %)).

8. Re: Fileplanet? Oct 27, 2001, 12:04  Frans 
 
There's the FilePlanet that offers demos, patches, movies, etc. This requires registration for quite some time now, free or as a subcription. The "other" FilePlanet serves up the files from all the various Planet* sites and their hosted sites. This, I believe, required registration for a brief period as well earlier this year, but otherwise never did.

for the last few days I've noticed the list of people/times has not been changed...
Indeed, we sorta noticed this late last week, but it completely fell through to cracks to track this down and fix it. Thanks for the reminder.
...somehow related to the search problems?
What search problems?

This is one of the worst FPS of all time.
More so, it's not an FPS, at all.

Well heck, of course not, it's a rather old news story and Westwood revamped their site since then.
Anyway, try here: ftp://ftp.westwood.com/pub/tiberiansun/updates/

Because, uhm, I had already added it to my list of screenshots for tonight's round-up, and when the movie came along it just didn't occur to me to include a mention of the shot here. It's up now though

3. Re: AVP Premiere Oct 19, 2001, 12:45  Frans 
 
Um....why is it asking for a password when trying to d/l from here?
That simply means the available anonymous ftp slots are full, but the server still allows admins to login if needed. Please try again here, or at another mirror.

I don't think it's gonna win any major awards agaist say... Dark Forces 2.
Now why would you compare it against a four year old game? After all, Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II was released in October 1997.

No offense, but message boards that don't support threading aren't very good imo.
Possibly, but you must be talking about some other board, since this one does support it. Above the list of posts, select View Threads, and hit the Change button. Presto.

News Comments > Open Letter to the Doom/Quake Community
12. Re: Bring back the original! Oct 1, 2001, 23:45  Frans 
 
Walnut Creek always struck me as a profitable company
Walnut Creek sold cdrom.com to Digital River nearly two years ago, so they weren't involved in any of this.
Hehe, the Unreal archive is still open to the public
Yes, they probably forgot to close it at the same time as the Doom/Quake archives, but its future on cdrom.com is just as uncertain. So, we're working on securing all three archives' future elsewhere. More later.

It's not a page, it's an ftp server, and it's maxed out all the time. Use a real ftp client that retries a lot of times, or... uhm... just go to one of the idstuff mirrors around the world that haven't updated yet. Such as:
ftp://mirrors.aol.com/pub/pc_games/doom/idstuff/quake3/win32/q3pointrelease_129h_beta.exe
