I found out that on 09MAR1999, Blizzard released a new patch for Starcraft/Brood War v1.5. I worked on putting together some patches for some of the games that I do not have. Here is what I came up with today: I added The 3DO Company to the Patches Index [link removed] Page. 21 Games/12 Patches Listed. I added Access Software to the Patches Index [link removed] Page. 10 Games/6 Patches Listed. I added Blizzard Entertainment to the Patches Index [link removed] Page. 6 Games/6 Patches Listed. I added Tsunami Media [Continue Reading]
I found out that on 22FEB1999, ICQ99a was released. Where have I been? If you want to make some new contacts, or keep in touch with some old ones, ICQ is the way to go…
I decided on adding a Patches Index [link removed] page today. This will soon include ALL of the patches I can find available today. It is going to take much work, but I think it will become a valuable resource if I can keep up with it. I am thinking about making it so the patches are listed by Company and not just alphabetical. Right now it only includes the same information as on my previous Game Patches [link removed] page.
After much thought, I decided to go out and get some new games. I have not purchased any for quite sometime now. Check out the Games Listings for the entire collection. I also worked on making all of the pages look pretty much the same. Some may still be a little out of whack, but they are starting to look pretty good. I added the neon bar between crap and on top of all pages. Cool, huh? As you probably may have known for awhile now, DirectX 6.1 is out [Continue Reading]
I just checked up on the Speed Running Demo’s [link removed] at PlanetQuake [link removed] to find out that Tangent has updated the page! Quite a few demo’s were released. Go check it out. I will have some more demo’s as soon as Reality relaxes its grasp. I have been trying really hard to make City1 @ :59, but it seems rather difficult. I tried ALL last night. To my disappointment, I was only able to make a 100.2. Just not good enough. I am not giving up, though!
I had the time to see if I could improve my Easy demo of city1 and got to shave just 1 second off. Go get it here.
After a small but well deserved vacation over the weekend with family and friends in Northern CA, I am ready to start working again. I found over at Speed Running Demo’s [link removed] at PlanetQuake [link removed] that the Page was updated over the weekend with some new and FASTER demo’s! Two of them mine! Well, it seems to me that maybe I am faster than I give myself credit for! Tonight, I plan on working on the Easy demo of city1 again to try and get it below 1 [Continue Reading]
After working on the Easy demo of city1 (only 2 hours this time), I finally got it down only one second less to 101.5. Get the file city1 @ 1:01 on Easy here! I am kind of proud of this one just because it is almost the smoothest I have done the demo, yet. There is still much room for improvement, but that will come with time…
After MUCH work on the Easy demo of boss2 (about 3 hours), I finally got it down to 45.6. Get the file boss2 @ 0:45 on Easy here. I am not sure if that is going to be it, or not, but I will still try to work on it. Happy Speed Running! Check out the Speed Running Page for more info!
I received a E-mail from Phil "Cain" Hall [link removed] on 22Feb1999…Head on over to the Q2 Speed Running Page to find out what he had to say…
