28. Re: Technical glitches Oct 22, 2002, 20:30  Xymph 
 
While on the subject of glitches, I can no longer send news from my home email address because your server spam-blocks me- not sure why. Here's what I get:
3D Gamers handles mail for the bluesnews.com domain. Please email me (fpv@3dgamers.com) the entire bounce message with all headers (if you have another address to send it from, otherwise it'll bounce as well of course - in that case you may have to post at least your domain here, if you don't like to post your full email address), then I'll look into it.

Pretty amazing they still make 16 MB demos for "big" titles, yeah. But it's true, and you can also get it directly from EA in Europe:

It's out now:

As far as I can see, the included docs don't list any system requirements though.

Mail to bluesnews is bouncing, host unkown.

What is that alternate address?
See yesterday's OotB. Our (and thus Blue's) mail has just been restarted and is now catching up on the backlog.

I'm getting 150 kilobytes a second. I guess we have different definitions.
No, just different times of downloading.

10. Re: Broken links? Sep 18, 2002, 21:34  Xymph 
 
Do any of those download links work? I keep getting file not found error.
The first (and biggest) mirror has a sync problem and doesn't carry the file yet, while the next two are maxed out continuously due to the demand for the UT2003 and NOLF2 demos. Sorry about that, you can find more mirrors at the official site: http://www.unrealtournament2003.com/?downloads

Psst, Blue, maybe see if Walter will do a Serious(tm) Logo?
Both Serious Sam and The Second Encounter were already done:

23. Re: Is my memory fuzzy... Sep 6, 2002, 20:55  Xymph 
 
That name still doesn't completely register...

Wondering if we should call you "TPFKAF"
I can't get used to it either. %):D

So I changed my .sig back, but will continue to post from this account, as the 'Frans' one still carries its Blue's News moderator status and a few hundred posts in my then "official" capacity as editor. I feel it's better to keep this distinction.

The game's title was Seraphim, albeit only a codename.

3. Re: Still looks good. Sep 4, 2002, 19:36  Xymph 
 
Why the correction on the game's name, Blue?
AKA is not a correction, it stands for Also Known As. Which applies here, since the game was announced as Haegemonia (which is apparently still used by Digital Reality's new Euro publisher Wanadoo after Cryo folded), and retitled into Hegemonia by North American publisher DreamCatcher.

I bet you didn't really want to know all that.

...or wasn't there already work completed on a sequel to Sam & Max? Something along the lines of the company closing down or running out of funding or some similar predicament?
Your memory is fine, in fact I'm a wee bit surprised Blue didn't make a reference to these past stories. :o;P

The file is corrupt. It won't install.
The .rar version indeed has a problem, so get the .zip version from Tiscali instead. It's larger, but installs ok.

[oops, wrong account below. ;)]

58. Re: State of Blue's News Aug 24, 2002, 15:46  Xymph 
 
Now Frans heads off in a different direction, a couple of days after the whole registration decision.
I would just like to clarify, since it was brought up earlier in this thread as well, that these two events are completely unrelated. I made the decision to step down early this month, several weeks before the registration decision, and since I support the latter, it wouldn't have been a reason for the former anyway.

Picked it in 1994, but the reason why it wasn't used here much is described in this post:

Err... wow.

Thanks everyone for all the kind wishes, It warms this cold-blooded newshound's heart. J/K I really appreciate it. Like I wrote in my note, I won't be that far away and don't mind playing guardian angel from time to time if Stephen needs it. But I hope you'll show your support for him as well, as in many ways he set the standards for this news site that I simply helped apply more consistently, and now he can use all the help anyone can provide.

One question: what will become of 3D Gamers?
It will be fine, as today's updates hopefully demonstrate, and thanks for your concern.

Frans

PS. Yeah, I miss frederickson too.
