10. Re: localized downloads May 3, 2002, 12:04  Frans 
 
Blue, if it comes to your attention that a download is being restricted to a local area, please mention it with an UPDATE notification. It will save people the time of clicking through on it if it isn't available to them from where they are downloading. Thank you.
1. Blue didn't write the story.
2. I downloaded the demo just fine (but I'm in the Netherlands, maybe that made a difference) so I wasn't aware of any area restrictions.
3. Try the mirror.

This MUST be a new record at 400 MB, right?
No, that's (still) the Baldur's Gate II demo at 609 MB.

Is anyone from Blue's News going to E3? I hope so.
'fraid not, that would make it difficult to keep the news going, so we'll be here updating the site throughout the days and evenings, just like last year.

News Comments > Morrowind Gold
167. Re: :( May 1, 2002, 15:19  Frans 
 
Why did Blues take this thread off the main page??
We didn't. Not manually anyway. The popular threads box only lists comment threads belonging to news stories of at most a week old, and thus this Morrowind thread has automatically expired off the list.

Heh I don't remember links, I am blessed with a fairly good visual memory so I recognized the images, and then it's just a matter of searching through our news archive and comparing with the links we posted to see where they first appeared.

It has nothing to do with nice or mean, it's not right to distribute leaked software. Blue will remove the link too when he gets to it first. So just knock off this silly cat and mouse game already.

News Comments > Fallout Fantasy Revealed?
29. Re: scratch that.. Apr 11, 2002, 18:44  Frans 
 
Killian, I don't doubt that you're right. But both the French site and we simply reported on what looked to be valid information. The source of the confusion is then with Virgin Interactive France. Oh well...

News Comments > Fallout Fantasy Revealed?
25. Re: scratch that.. Apr 11, 2002, 18:02  Frans 
 
I'd like to clarify that the release schedule, of which the French site forwarded a copy to us, specifies that Fallout Fantasy would be a PC title. We wouldn't have run the story otherwise (or at least not this prominently).

That doesn't mean the stories on Duck & Cover and Vault13 are wrong, it could well be that the schedule is inaccurate and that it simply copied some fields from the Icewind Dale 2 entry above it. I'll paste them from the Excel sheet here, but of course they'll likely get mashed together due to lack of column formatting:

Titre Sortie Support Test Preview News Genre Développeur Editeur/Distributeur Prix Euro

Icewind Dale 2 Sept. PC Sep-02 Jul-02 Jun-02 Action/RPG Black Isle Interplay/Virgin 53.21
Fallout Fantasy Sept. PC Sep-02 Jul-02 Jun-02 RPG Black Isle Interplay/Virgin 53.21

So there you go. More as we find out.

RPMgames.com has a pretty good review of jedi knight 2 not mentioned for some reason here.
That reason simply being that they didn't let us know about it (yet?). You did now though, so it'll be in tomorrow's list.

34. Re: Columbian Crackdown? Apr 2, 2002, 18:49  Frans 
 
I think you mean Colombian..
Yes, turns out this is correct. It was misspelled two out of the three times the subtitle is mentioned in the press release we received, but the same announcement on a UK press site showed it correctly. Sorry about the confusion.

14. Re: Alt text on logo Apr 2, 2002, 12:29  Frans 
 
I think, in the light of the downtime, the Alt text should say "I find your lack of News disturbing".
Actually, that one's pretty funny too, but we really don't want to show that all week long, while we're updating again.

And Hazard, the Rave_n_ typo was fixed a while ago, perhaps you have the pop-up cached?

2. Re: comanche 4 demo Apr 2, 2002, 12:22  Frans 
 
Sounds like you don't have JavaScript enabled, it's needed for the pop-up window to appear that has the real download link. Uhm, well, a Gigex link anyway, which produces a pop-up of its own.
http://gigex.com/gp/gp.asp?PackageId=0045300003&source=00

I guess the direct download link is more convenient then: http://gigex1.com/Q0045300003/

Oops, I prepared this logo last week but couldn't think of an ALT text immediately so I put it aside, and then forgot it still needed to be updated. Excellent suggestion, mind if I borrow that?

Uhm, duh? We were down since Thursday evening, in case you hadn't noticed. The retail patch was released on Friday so we caught up to that news, but the beta patch is new and doesn't seem to have been picked up by other news sites yet.
