Go try it out, give the guys who did it some credit by making it a tad more popular.

They do have a "donate" thing but it is free, if I had enough bucks I probaby would donate a little.

You would all have to play it to see what you think, but my biggest complaint is head bob and a small thin red crosshair.
And a heads up, to disconnect from a server you need to type in "disconnect" in the console.

UPDATE
there IS bots AND you can change the crosshait in the menus.

I see what they are doing, you can configure everything, has like settings for each weapon damage,fire speeds,jump height,max player speed,gravity the list goes on and on.

Has instagib,ctf,the grapple hook if you want,TDM, a rune match, it is so configurable for gameplay.

Totaly catering for the "gamer" side of things, and seems to run good too, there is about 25 servers, it has it's own game browser too.

They did a great job, I am sure it is being tweaked and other maps comming out to.

Why?
..........

I didn't think anyone knew about it, how new is it,? evil cope said it was old, but I dunno.

It would be cool to see some opinions about it, I think it is great from the standpoint that freelance programers etc etc made it.
But I just got thing tweaked out and online it was doing quite well, the maps don't look to bad, and I can move around quite good.

Time will tell.

I didn't try it, and I won't be disappointed if Red Fist is disappointed that I didn't try it and then had the nerve to post this.

ok I seen it came out may31 2005

No you can check it out or not, but who knows it might get a large following, ya never know.
They don't have all the money to have it marketed, but still worth playing, it's not bad at all.

I tried it the day it came out. I also deleted it from my hd the day it came out. This game has no lasting reason to stay on my computer. It's just no fun. Sure, it's free and all but you'd be a total fool to pay for this.

It don't seem all that bad, really can't wait to play now that I have it setup good.

Slower than quake1?
FPS, I am getting 60 to 212 fps.1024 some of the effects do make it slow though.

I guess I should post some screenshots, so whomever might want to see.

And have been on 2 servers, runs smooth ,very smooth.

UPDATE
ya it started getting choppy online, not to sure if it's settings, or the particular map, or just wierd code for network, I dunno

Seriously, Red, I don't see what the fuss is.
It's a good effort, but, just not good enough, and it really is old hat. been several threads about it, infact, last year.
Free, low quality games are hardly rare, anyway.

(see The Rule of Stuff(tm). Like mods and maps, etc, 90% of user-made-stuff is crap.)

Then again if you enjoy it, you enjoy it and nothing else really matters. :)

I never heard of it, but we need somthing new that doesn't take a 500ghz system all for looks.Somthing thats not quake or unreal that works good online with different weapons.

So I posted here to mabye get a few more people who don't know about this game.
It has it's ups and downs, but so far in all the years UT not 04 is really still the best DM online game.

But if peple have the time it's cool to see what these guys did, imagine if they did have a money backing like the big guys,we just need somthing new.

So far this one after like 5 players becomes choppy online, and it's a little hard to see the skins-bots.

if you want to play soemthing new and different that doesnt require an über computer you should try Darwinia for example but don't cling on to a sub-decent quake/ut wannabe.

Ok If there is any problem with rules just delete the thread, all files are about 50k a total of 2.31 meg for all of them.

I wouldn't want to break forum rules with these types of posts.
otherwise take a look.
should be one or 2 from each map.
And don't go by the "fps" in the corner, I ran a different exe wich works for some audio sound quality thing, the original exe i get 60 to 212 fps.

Also all effects were off, at 1024*768 resampled to 512*384 .jpg

It still looks as crappy as it did when I tried it.
If you take looks aside you still have a game with SERIOUS gameplay issues.

I'm rather playing call of duty2 or starship troopers :P

those maps dont look "crapy" ,sheesh, still worth downloading though, it's not that bad.it's really not bad at all.
It may have some things about it wich arn't all perfect, but far from bad or crapy.

I like the screenshots RedFist so I'll download it..

Looks oldschool,Quakeish.

I hadn't heard of it before.

It seems to have grabbed your attention,a bit..

EDIT: Right.. I played it,thought no!..laggy/jumpy/lego-ish (most of what the Users above said 'was no good')...THAT was right..a couple of nice architech-friendly maps though.

Not at all, but the choppyness is because of the settings, and WTF is leggo-ness anyway.

Still aint too bad to play, I have it setup quite good,no problems here.
