Because there is probably some minor level of interest.

31. Re: .plan files Feb 28, 2002, 00:19  Frans 
 
Define "crazy .plan updates"? The tracker is generally well-behaved given sufficient disk space, but it will produce an occasional fluke update if the pertaining person eg. cleans out his .plan (that's still an update to the tracker but there's nothing new to read), or if the company's finger server has a hiccup (which I initially assumed was the case today, as I couldn't manually finger one or two servers). It doesn't happen frequently in my experience though, most updates can be explained from the changes a tracked person makes (even though they aren't always obvious when you can just see the new 'version' of the .plan).

looks like id and ritual are having problems now too
Well, those actually made a little lightbulb go off over my head and quickly lead to the cause and solution of this problem: the disk on which the tracker runs was full All cleaned up now, sorry about the mess.

It seems the finger servers of Raven, Monolith and (occasionally) 3D Realms are having difficulties, emitting partial updates or timing out on the finger requests. So the tracker thinks there's a difference with the previous copy it keeps, and logs an update. Many of them.

Not much we can do about it, those servers just have to start behaving again.

Unless otherwise specified, the context of our stories is games, not the works those games are possibly based on.

<cough> What Mafia shots?

You're right, a number of them looked unfamiliar, but that's probably because they're pretty old and I should have double-checked against the English official site.

That's actually the pop-up of MGON (and possibly other sites). Did you per chance visit an MGON link?

9. Re: links Feb 15, 2002, 12:29  Frans 
 
Are you getting paid from FilePlanet or something?.. seems every file link on this site is only to FilePlanet
We are not, if we were we'd link to their personal server thingy instead of the regular download page. We simply post whatever site a file appears on first, and since Electronic Arts grants all its releases to FilePlanet, that's what you get.

Broad sweeping and inaccurate comments are so easy.

And FYI, there's already a mirror on 3D Gamers.

yeh...well, after playing 6 hours of the game, 40 seconds seems kinda short
I was talking about the movie series, remember? Most clips so far ran for 20-30 seconds, that makes 40 generous.

8. Re: :( Feb 13, 2002, 19:40  Frans 
 
We've mentioned patches for the beta tests of Empire Earth, Battle Isle: Andosia War and Black Moon Chronicles (to name a few) in the past. That was never an issue. We feel that just because WarCraft III is perhaps more anticipated than those titles doesn't mean we should treat it differently.

7. Re: CD Lamp/Kung fu Feb 9, 2002, 13:48  Frans 
 
I want to see a stick man FPS.
There was a first-person rail shooter that we linked sometime last year. I can't find it in the archive right now, but it turns out the site that hosts today's stick fighting movie carries a fairly complete archive of all these Flash movies and games:

http://www.inflash.com/leet/list_leet_shows_full.php?upperlimit=20&lowerlimit=0&cat=13&this_cat=StickDeath&where=shows

Including the rail shooter: http://www.inflash.com/leet/geturl.php?showid=304
It's a bit hard to play in that small window, so you may like use the direct Flash link: http://www.stileproject.com/fightgame.swf

Enjoy.

Uhm, a mirror is either local, or not a mirror at all.

Avault.com, they've got mirrors up for the new release.
FYI, they don't have local mirrors, they just have the same list of links to the official servers which are swamped or don't have the files. Our news story now lists some real mirrors.

The first answer provided in the Q&A is: "My title here at EA is franchise art director for the Medal of Honor series." And Blue wrote: "Matt is the art director for the Medal of Honor franchise, [...]"

I don't think there's an inaccuracy (much less a lie) in the story.
