Is this the first time Sabotain has been on here?
No, we've covered it a few times before, and it used to be called Sabotage: Fist of the Empire before the name change to Sabotain, and there's half a dozen stories on the old title too. Do a news archive search.

16. Re: actually Jul 11, 2002, 23:07  Frans 
 
It's a hell of a drag to have to bookmark ever single hardware site out there, then check them for updates.
Indeed, that's why we don't do that. We check lots of gaming, developer and publisher sites though.

The past several days Blue's been really slim with the links; I was starting to think he was phasing that section out or something.
The reason for this is mentioned in Out of the Blue: the list is compiled entirely from mail submissions, and there were very few of those while our mail server was down.

Not everyone, I mentioned that when 3D Gamers posted the German demo (now superseded by the English one).

11. Re: I have a problem!!! Jun 26, 2002, 13:50  Frans 
 
Seriously, it looks fine...not that I have been having any real problems in IE lately.
Well, we tested IE5/6, NS4/6, Mozilla and Opera5/6 on Windows already, so we're just looking for glitches in less common browsers and on other OSes.
Off the top of my head, the logo is broken on the more advanced posting pages (Account Options, Lost Password).
Those haven't been fixed yet, like Blue said we're testing this single page first before applying that code to the whole site.
Although you will likely have to take it up with BP, it would be cool k3\/\/1 if posted links acted as "Launch Links."
I'm not sure what you're referring to here, on which pages are you missing the Launch Links option? And who's "BP"?

Where will I go to find old Q1 levels now?
The Quake (idgames2) ftp archive that was maintained by Joost Schuur at ftp.cdrom.com is still around. You can find the details of this (and the Doom and Unreal archives) at http://www.3dgamers.com/about/archives.html

2. Re: No subject Jun 14, 2002, 16:59  Frans 
 
Odd, they used a different (http) server for this release rather than their usual (very slow) ftp server, and it was plenty fast yesterday. Guess that didn't last long.

You can find the movie on the official site as of today as well, http://www.tombraider.com/ (Flash required), and also on 3D Gamers.

News Comments > On the UT2003 Demo Leak
31. Re: No subject Jun 11, 2002, 23:25  Frans 
 
Frans, I think this should be proof that it is a good time to talk with Blue about REQUIRED REGISTRATION for the forums.
That is under serious consideration for a while already, though so far mostly because of the excessive profanity and general negativity that seems to go around this board lately. However, that atmosphere is not brought about only by anonymous users, registered ones are guilty of contributing to it as well. For that reason, we haven't decided yet whether disabling anon posting will make a worthwhile difference.

As for this particular situation with the leaked demo, that happened for SoF2 as well, and locking that thread until the official demo came out addressed that sufficiently. So regrettably, this thread is dangerously close to the same fate.

30. Re: Oy! Jun 11, 2002, 23:19  Frans 
 
Sure thing, but it is not a warez site; it doesn't "have" the file.
Sites that post details on warezed files are just as much part of the warez scene as the ones that have the downloads.

Just lock the thread already, unless you really find this entertaining
It's mildly diverting so far but locking this thread is indeed what will happen if you guys keep pushing this over the line. We won't prevent you from talking about this thing altogether, but please don't post any links or even hints (however convoluted) to the warez sites that have the file.

Could be early 98 indeed. The first mention I could find in the old HTML archive is from April 12, 1998, but that means it's probably been in development since 1997.

77. Re: Oh, and Blue... May 26, 2002, 21:24  Frans 
 
..pulling the links may have been just a wee-bit too subservient to the powers-that-be. If the NY Times or Fox News or CNN gets their hands on something hot, they run with it.

If id doesn't want their media to get out to the public, they shouldn't show it publicly. And certainly a "news" site shouldn't quail from posting something that's actually news. If the industry would retaliate against you for doing such a thing, then you should report that, as well. That's news. It's not like you went to E3 and shot the footage yourself. You're just reporting it. It's id's bailiwick to get the video taken down if it bothers them.
They did. That's the practical reason the links were pulled, as at least three of the four sites we listed had pulled the movie. But due the movie's nature, I didn't feel compelled to hunt down new links to replace them either. In fact, that would only make those sites the target of a mail from id Software as well. The file is still out there, there's nothing we can (or would want to) do about that, you just have to look a bit harder for it now.

Well, I finally got around to viewing the Soldiers of Anarchy E3 trailer, and it features the SilverStyle logo, so it's officially confirmed after all. Go fig.

3. Re: Censored? May 25, 2002, 13:17  Frans 
 
You imagine correctly. We've tried to get official confirmation of who is developing the game when it was announced, but they're apparently not ready to provide that yet. It's been conjectured that Soldiers of Anarchy is the new title for Natural Resistance / Natural Freedom / Unborn by German developer Silver Style though, but at this point that's off the record.

No wonder Aquanox is no longer with Fishtank
Correction: Fishtank was acquired by JoWood, so this title essentially moved with the first company's remnants into the second one.

PC and Xbox. That was covered before so I didn't think it was necessary to mention it again, but I updated the story now anyway. Here's the publisher's game page:

4. Re: Subscription services May 20, 2002, 23:23  Frans 
 
Creole Ned:

I agree in general, but you seem to be overlooking the fact that there's one free movie. If any site posted one free movie (without additional clips requiring a subscription), we would report it too and nobody would be complaining about it, so I don't think we should be treating GameSpot differently just because they dangle a bunch of carrots in front of you and some of you don't like carrots.

News Comments > Soldiers of Anarchy Unveiled
9. Re: Previously known as May 14, 2002, 14:40  Frans 
 
As reported here before, of course.
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=32419
And before that it was known as Unborn, as the URL on Silver Style's site still indicates.

Anyway, when Simon & Schuster mentioned the developer, my first thought was of Natural Resistance/Freedom as well, but they haven't confirmed that yet. Also, they asked us to pull the screenshots we posted with the press release, but we hope to get something new soon.

Meanwhile, you can check some previous shots and a movie trailer at 3D Gamers </shameless plug>
