Important Note Go to top of page
Please note that updates before the year 2000 are from the old MultiPlayer Quake site and have been entered on the site purely for entertainment value. They've been put in exactly as they were on the old site (except for screen shots) so any listed site links are probably wrong and some of the colours will look plain awful. You have been warned :)

Almost New Year Reviews

Ok, I'm back now after a short Christmas break. I'm getting the Top 10 Quake and Quake 2 maps of the year ready and I'm also working on some Quake reviews. I should, hopefully, have the reviews and the Top 10 up on the site by Saturday.

Those of you that visit Headshot's, Retinal's and Frib's websites will have noticed the qboard. This is Headshots very own webboard. I've asked to mirror it here, so I should hopefully be able to link it up here. I recommend map authors go look at it now, its full of helpful map making info.

Having had a look at the counters on the Quake and Quake 2 pages it would appear that the Quake 2 reviews are just slightly more popular than the Quake reviews =P. The good thing about these counters is I get loads of details about the people who visit the site. For example the majority of visitors to the Quake page use 800x640 resolution and IE4. I was surprised to find some people use 1600x1200!!! If you use a resolution higher than 1024x768, email me and tell me does the site look ok?

Observant people may have noticed that Monsto and myself have put counters at the bottom of the Quake and Quake 2 pages. Its basically to show which is the most popular page. I've only just put the Quake counter in so Monsto's got a head start =).

Merry Christmas

*MERRY CHRISTMAS* to all you Quakers. Hope you're all having a good Christmas where ever you are.

Monsto has done 3 more Quake 2 reviews and I've now uploaded all archives for all the reviews I've done, pop over to the old reviews page and go from there. The majority of levels with 4+ have pictures with them. Some reviews are little wierd though because they relate to pictures which aren't there, I'll get round to sorting that out soon. (ie. re-write the review)

This is probably a long shot, but does anyone have a copy of old archives for the site, when Taskmaster ran the site. We don't have them and neither does Taskmaster. Any help would be good!

Xori has released his first Quake 2 map, which I recommend you go download now.

I've also added another link, its for The House Of CleaN which is a map author site. The site includes some tips for map making which are worth a look.


Old stuff up

After discussions with various people I've uploaded the reviews for Quake and Quake 2 maps for the last month. Pictures aren't working in all of them since some use the same names and I've got to get it properly sorted. I eventually hope to have all the reviews I've done up, but theres over 60 of them and some need to be converted from the various site formats so it may take a while.

I've also fixed Skorpion's site link since this daft git left a fullstop in which stopped the link from working... Ahem. Sorry!

Heres this weeks Quake and Quake 2 reviews. The old reviews have been updated so don't forget to look there.

A *big* thank you to Mr Shambler for spamming all the message boards he knows to make sure people vote for their top 10 maps. While I'm at it go visit his site, TEAMShambler Quake Level Reviews

Some new links to check out as well, like Skorpion's Omibot Page. This site has loads of route files for the Omicron bot (my preferred bot). I may have a rant to put up soon as well, on how we review your maps. Should be an interesting read =).

Also just for fun, which maps were used in the site logo?

Nothing new just a better explanation about the Top 10 Quake and Quake 2 maps of 1998. Send details of your top 3 Quake maps and your top 3 Quake 2 maps. Right, with that done click here to send that vote now.

Monsto has come up with 3 more reviews and 2 are TOP rated!!!

Since you peeps have been asking me so much about it, here is a fully working, properly checked, totally correct, 100% prefect link for Kaffe & Kaka 2.0. Its a local link since the authors link is about as reliable as a Lada. Hope you're all happy now =P.

This is something that relates *ONLY TO QUAKE REVIEWS*. I am willing to accept older maps. The Submit Levels page says submit recent work. I'm not that bothered. Do not, however, hand in your entire back catalogue of maps, now that would annoy me. Why am I do doing this? I have no Quake maps to review at the moment so need something to cover this =).

Its a good job I'd done the majority of the update yesterday because right now I feel like $%#. Don't know whats caused it. Its as if someones poured concrete down my neck and my head is being pounded by a pneumatic drill. Anyway, here are this weeks batch of Quake and Quake2 reviews. The majority of the Quake levels are big maps this week which makes a change. As always check the Old Reviews if you missed last weeks reviews.

Gonzo has moved his site Gonz-O-Matic from Telefragged to PlanetQuake. Pop over there and gaze at how good his site looks =).

The final two Featured Author interviews are up. They are Danimal and Killjoy. Speaking of Killjoy, he has just moved his site from Geocities to Terrafusion.

Another crazy thought of mine. Top 10 Quake and Quake 2 maps of 1998. Send in details of your favourite 3 maps of 1998. It'll appear at the end of December so start voting now.

Site regular, Pingu, has written a little rant. Its about how boring some games are today and its similiar to what I've said in my Half-Life rant (which I've nearly finished writing).

I've got a little disclaimer here which I've added to the submit levels page. Basically if you can't download a level then its not our problem, its the authors. I could upload all the maps here but I have limited time on the net so its easier on my part to give the link the author does. Off couse if a bad link looks like a typo please do tell us and it will be fixed.

Just thought I'd mention GLDoom. Excellent piece of software. Its a amazing achievement considering it was written in Bruces spare time. I do have to say it chugged a bit on some maps (I'm running it on a P200 64mb, Voodoo2 12mb), but overall it was fairly smooth. Certainly adds a new lease of live to the old game.

More news for you peeps. Today is the 1 year anniversary of the release of Quake II in the US. Yippee! Also tommorrow is the 5th anniversary of the release of Doom! Take a look at 5 Years of Doom for more info on this. Also Doomworld and Doom Nation are worth a look too.

Xori has opened his site here at MPQ, go take a peek. Hes almost finished his first Quake 2 map as well. Peekaboom's DM Diagnosis page has moved to Terrafusion.

Here are this weeks Quake2 reviews! Monsto has worked his butt off and provided us with some excellent reviews. They would have been up earlier except I went out last night with some Uni and Ex-work friends and got a little drunk =). Anyway, enjoy the reviews!!

This weeks Quake reviews are up.

Quake 2 deathmatch maps can now be submitted, go to the "Submit Levels" page for more details.

If you missed last weeks reviews, they are now on the old reviews page. I've also changed the layout slightly.

About Half-Life and Sin DM. Sin is a no go for me, I don't have it. I'm unsure about Half-Life reviews. I played HL DM and found it to be little boring...

Two more featured authors, Mr Fribbles and XL Prodigy. Peej has updated his interview, so go take a peek at that. I'm running to the end of this now, any suggestions for more authors, email me. Just to spoil the surprise our final Featured Authors will be Danimal and Kiljoy.

Monsto has done an ickle rant, its interesting reading and should invoke a response or two =). Also theres a followup article on the rant I did last weekend. Thank you to all the people who send feedback. I've got some ideas for another rant so expect another one of them. Probably be about Half-Life, since I've finished it.

About the rants, you can submit your own rant to be put up on the site. Email me first as to what it is about and it'll go from there.

QuArK (version 5.2b) now has Sin and Half-Life support, so you can now convert your Quake maps to either game! Some mapping news, Gandhi has released Naked5, extremely good map. Theres a new Quake Single Player site opened called TEAMShambler Quake Level Reviews. Cool site, go drop by.

Also heres some news from Jakob. Mr. Fribbles has moved his page to http://www.planetquake.com/frib/ and Retinal has got a new look on his page. Not to keen on it myself, but it looks cool none the less.

I've updated the links page. I may have forgot some, so if your link is not there, re-send it.


Thank you

Thanks for the feedback on the rants. Keep it coming!

Ok, thinking about adding a review section for Single Player Quake 2 maps. Should it go ahead, email me.

I've been thinking about the future of MPQ. We'll definately be doing reviews for Q3A. Now I'm thinking about Sin and Half-Life DM reviews. I know theres no user-made maps yet, but they will soon appear. Good or bad idea? Tell me what you think.

None Quake thing. I recommend, if you have a Playstation and like racing games, go buy TOCA 2 Touring Car. Excellent game.
