The question is, was mine or indiv's post that clued Blue to fix it? Probably neither.
Precisely, because Blue wasn't even around to cause that little mishap, or fix it.

Normally I check the frontpage a minute or two after posting a new story, but I was distracted for a while longer, that's why it attracted so much attention. Apparently.

Any official website or screenshots for that carnivores game?
Sunstorm mentioned there's no official site for it, but some screenshots were recently posted at various sites, check our news archive.

A few minutes ago, Activision sent a note that the patch won't be out tonight, and is now expected tomorrow. Sorry folks.

5. Re: IM really confused. Mar 7, 2002, 08:36  Frans 
 
I mislabeled the day because:
a) It was already Thursday in the Netherlands.
b) My cable modem was down all evening and working over my old 28k8 modem threw me off.
c) I just didn't think.
d) All of the above.

No link to the developer?
I'm not aware of a developer site, here is the publisher's product page:

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.

23. Re: .plan files Feb 27, 2002, 15:45  Frans 
 
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?

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.
