You do seem to be handling whatever this is poorly. Ive only skimmed through the posts, but I did notice this:

No reply was requested quadz, in future please do not think or feel that responding to me is in any way anything that you need to or should do at any particular time or at any time at all.

Whatever blame you're placing on people for whatever that I don't care about, you gotta be crazy if you think saying and acting like that to quadz is going to benefit you at all.


This is the most off-base out-of-context insane response yet.

This is, i believe, the most polite and most considerate thing i've said to quadz in over ten years, what on earth are you babbling about?


"Ive only skimmed through the posts"

BYE EVERYONE! GOODBYE! BYE-BYE NOW!

Golgo13, |iR|Focalor - Both of you began replying to me in this thread in a bizarrely off-base way and continued to diverge from the reality of what i actually wrote and meant as the thread grew, there is absolutely no way i can sufficiently respond to your replies in any meaningful way because you have both had a conversation with me, in my absence, that has no real relation to what i actually wrote and meant and you have both brought up subjects and points that have no real relation to what i actually wrote and meant, i can't fathom at how you actually managed to arrive at the places and positions you did in light of the fact that what i actually wrote and meant couldn't, in any rational way, have led you there, frankly i'm genuinely shocked that this thread has gone where it has.



Costigan, i played xatrix with you on a regular for a couple of months. i remember our solo matches. where have i sad anything negative? all i did was partially agree with focalor that you altered the map(s)as to have an advantage over other players rather than balance out the map for other players. that's not a bad thing.

you know, focalor is going to poke fun at everything. doesn't mean he's 100% right all the time.  :headbonk: you should know better. i'm suprised at you. plus you don't even remember me. i thought we were acquaintances. i even tried to advocate for you by making this post. we need more players. not less. it's up to you though, if you don't want to play. we welcome you. i think you're taking some of these comments too personally? don't be like that. just come and enjoy the games.  :smiley_abae:


He's so obscenely confused he actually thinks that i'm Spawngirl.

I'm not gonna miss this place, bye again.

Clemency for the banned?

How about that Quadz? it's been a nice polite uneventful entire year on my part but my account is still functionally crippled because you didn't like that i spoke Spanish to a Spanish speaker on 'El Box de Shoutamente' saying hello to said Spanish speaker and telling them that you'd let me be back on the forum.

Did i miss anything? did i paraphrase that too much?

Folks who have been here awhile probably have some idea the level of shenanigans required to achieve a full ban on these forums.

That you're posting at all again now is, let's say, enough for me for the time being.

I don't blame you for posting in the shoutbox. As I believe I'd explained on Discord, it's a separate system that requires tweaking the source code to effect bans/unbans. But yes it's true that seeing your post there, regardless of intent, caused me to reconsider whether I'd made a grave mistake allowing you provisional access again, because I don't want to be spending time doing the very thing I'm doing right now, taking up my Sunday morning replying to your cloying obsequious chicanery.


p.p.s. My offer still stands on me happily doing any/all shit work to eradicate all trace of my old dead accounts on your forum, just pm me and i... oh right... my pm functions are still off...

You know you're already in contact with me on Discord. Why are you pretending like your forum PM's being disabled are somehow an impediment?

FFS, the nerve.


p.s. Didn't Spawngirl contribute an ultra fuckton of high-quality Xatrix override material

Yes.


only to have it taken away

Absolutely not.

(But she did have varying levels of reservations/objections surrounding the question of whether her overrides should be allowed to be added to the map list on other xatrix servers.)

You, |iR|Focalor, have been doing that with your replies to me since i came back last year, albeit in a socially positive way, but thankfully my politeness and patience overcame the disbelief and exasperation you consistently inspired in me.

"No one found her highly amusing." - how did you even get to writing this even after quoting me right above where you wrote it?

Congratulations fellas, i just broke my own rule of not responding to negativity in this community.

free tip: Always reread, always.

"You know you're already in contact with me on Discord. Why are you pretending like your forum PM's being disabled are somehow an impediment?"

They are an impediment, i was highlighting an aspect of the impediment i am not able to function properly under, a functionally crippled account is an impediment, i can't even alter my signature, i can't function on this site to do the creative exposition and social networking that i had planned to do here, amongst this Quake 2 community, but had to shelve, an entire year ago, whilst i waited politely and patiently only to find out, now, that me expressing some saltiness (with relevant subject matter and appropriate humour) has produced a response from you that makes it clear that me waiting politely and patiently (whilst also being helpful wherever i could) for an entire year has had little to no effect on your disposition towards me.

The topic of this thread was my sole reason for what i wrote here, my sole reason, was i obliged to only speak about these matters through our accounts on discord?


I can't take reactions like this again, i just can't, see you all again in another three or so years folks, bye for now.

One more. This one is all PCX except a skull in the "gibs" folder but there is a grey PCX version as well, and some neat player sounds in the  pain25 range. I like the machine gun sound especially in this one and the rocket launcher. Mostly the work of someone else I just added some player sounds and tightened up the machine gun sound.

Cheers.

A good mix of stuff but i'm not sure about the dark colours on some of the weapons and ammo.

Stuff

Stuff

Please don't use that name, it's just and only 'Costigan' now.

My days of reacting to negativity within the Q2 community are long gone, my first post in this thread not withstanding.

Unless Quadz posts in reply to my first post in this thread i will not be posting again in this thread under any circumstances.


edit: Golgo13, i've been back posting for a year and i'd try your server if you actually advertised the IP anywhere.

Please pardon my mountain of disbelieving salt, there's just been a massive landslide on it.


p.s. Didn't Spawngirl contribute an ultra fuckton of high-quality Xatrix override material (still in use to this day?) only to have it taken away or dismissed or abused in some manner that apparently a large amount of people found highly amusing? honestly i don't know enough about it, i'm just asking.

p.p.s. My offer still stands on me happily doing any/all shit work to eradicate all trace of my old dead accounts on your forum, just pm me and i... oh right... my pm functions are still off...

If only my .pcx-based default renderer/software mode pak was already updated and done, i could give you my own pak.

I'm using standard normal original Quake 2 pcx files that came from a standard normal original Quake 2 game disc, how is it even possible for this to be happening? MANY Quake 2 players will STILL be using original pcx-based Quake 2 game files! was there a grand mass conversion to jpg in the past four years or something?


I have attached three r_explode paks to this post, look below:

1. a (pcx) pak with my pcx files.

2. a (jpg) pak with my pcx files converted to jpg using irfanview.

3. a (both) pak containing the contents of both the pcx pak and the jpg pak.

Any of these paks work as they should?

Anyone?

Not many people seem to know about it, i can't remember where i got it from originally so i figured i'd post my copy of the zip of it here because it might not exist anywhere else anymore.

It's tricky/crappy but it's what i use because i can manually curate server lists with it.

That looks pretty slick and your particles are square as well. Are you running in software mode?

Yes it's in software mode, i never liked any of the fancy other stuff because the lighting would just be too dark or too bright.

Actually ...Yes.  :D The majority of players on Tastyspleen servers use updated clients.

Who converted all of the original pcx files into jpg files and where can i download it all?
