Scientology, even at the height of its culty shenanigans, never aspired to these levels of crazy-stupid.


I’m never surprised by the ability of the human mind for self-delusion, especially when reinforced by permission to yield to our base instincts and hedonism. Then there’s the power of the evil, charismatic mind and the lieutenant who will commit crimes in the name of the leader, all for the sake of sustaining a privileged lifestyle.

I'm surprised the flavor lasted all of three hours.

It’s hard to troubleshoot this without more information.
Exactly which game scanner are you using?
Exactly which Q2 client are you launching with it?
Is this failure message coming from the game scanner or the game client?
Is it a pop up message or in the game client console?

Trouble Shooting / Re: Help setting up Railwarz CTF Linux Server

It might not show anything informative but look at the log/tmgserver-err.log and see what it says.

Try not using a shell script to start the start script and see what happens.

Another thing to try is to run the startup without the exec wrapper and do it from the command line to see all the output.

./ ./r1q2ded 27910 +set game ctf +set logfile_name ctfserver.log +set logfile 0 +exec railwarz.cfg

If using make all you must create .depends in each of the folders in the binaries folder.

The following procedure assumes you have cloned the git archive from Tastyspleen with this command:
git clone

I put my copy in my account's quake2 folder.

From the terminal, drill down into the ~/quake2/r1q2-archive/binaries/r1q2ded folder and check to see if there is a .depends folder. This MUST exist before the build will work. ls -las will disclose it. If not, type mkdir .depends to create it.

Next, go up one directory level (cd ..) to the binaries directory and then type make r1q2ded and it should build correctly and report success. This will build r1q2ded for the native architecture of your machine. (64-bits is typical)
You will find the executable in the binaries/r1q2ded/ folder. This executable will use as the game dll.

Hawking, Hawkins. He’s dead now and doesn’t care anymore. He won’t show up to Focalor’s parties either but I’m sure everyone is relieved. Reporters pronouncing names? Hopeless.

It’s Stephen Hawking not Hawkins, proving “reporters” and meme creators are not necessarily Mensa members.

Railwarz / TMG Version 0.2.43 Release
« on: September 08, 2018, 09:17:09 PM »
This archive includes Windows and Linux DLLs for TMG Railwarz 0.2.43.

I recommend upgrading all servers to this version.

The Linux versions were built on Debian using GCC 4.3.2 for 32 and 64 bit platforms. If they don't work on your system they can be rebuilt from source obtained at

The veins in the anal sphincter (and especially if one has hemorrhoids) are easily perforated. Depending on the air nozzle and whether it was modified from the “approved” 30 psi to the full tank pressure it could inflate the colon and enter the blood stream. Vein walls are thin, arteries are much tougher. Veins carry blood directly to the heart via the inferior vena cava through the right atrium and right ventricle to the lungs. Once an air bubble enters the lungs it blocks in the capillaries and the person asphyxiates. If air bubbles get into the cardiac arteries you get a heart attack. If bubbles get to the brain, and bubbles being bubbles, they like to rise in the fluid column, you get a stroke.

These events occurred in foreign countries so there’s no reason to believe the nozzle was in any shape or form diffused or regulated in pressure or that the tank was ordinary shop air.

You can incur an air embolism very easily while scuba diving in 30 feet of water which involves only 2 ATA at 33 feet of salt water by holding your breath and ascending to the surface, a difference of only 15 psi. This is why you’re trained to blow bubbles while ascending and to keep your airway open. Scuba tank pressure is 3000 psi full but the mouthpiece is fed by the primary to about 150 psi and regulates to ambient or anywhere between 15 psia at the surface to 45-50 psia at 100 fsw. (3 ATA)

Air embolism. No joke.

Quake / Re: CTF Players - question for you
« on: June 27, 2018, 09:37:14 PM »
There are several different versions of "CTF server".
Traditional CTF
Insta-gib rail
TMG CTF, or FFA usually configured for rails

There generally isn't a need in CTF to add something to fight for, they're fighting for flags and for flag captures.

With default configurations on TMG for example, there are no items spawned at all. Everyone gets a railgun and that's all, no power ups or ammo is spawned at all.

LMCTF has runes and they spawn randomly throughout the maps during gameplay and they make armor and quad obsolete.

Typical CTF maps (as far as I remember) will have a quad as central object which seems to be the most coveted power up but the mods are free to replace or eliminate power ups. LOX, for example, replaces quad with jetpack because the weapons there are amped up and so numerous that quad is just super-overkill.

I don’t know who paid half of what to who anymore and I really don’t care. Hammer was a big republican donor and he pleaded guilty to making illegal donations to Nixon’s campaign for which he received a feather-tap on his pinky finger and later, a pardon from Bush. I’m not going to try to go back through this thread to untangle petty rants.

HAHAWUUUUT!?! He pays 110 thousand to the RNC to be pardoned for paying HALF that to a democrat. Timing of the contribution relative to the pardon being granted was merely a coincidence I'm sure.

Nixon was a Republican.

Q2 Training Camp / Re: Quake 2 Source Code Question

The game dll is the game, both single player and deathmatch. You will need to compile only the dll to mod the game but the dll and the executable must be compiled against the same runtime. The runtime is dynamically linked and if they are not the same for all components you can encounter strange bugs.

I would recommend using the R1q2 b8012 game source as a base because it fixes many issues but it lacks the cinematic support for the scene setups between segments of the single player game. The game module doesn’t actually perform them but the client does. AFAIK, r1ch didn’t change the functionality of the game dll in his version, it’s all about the client and server there.

Using VS2017 to convert the 3.21 code to a VS2017 project works without errors but it will want to build against the V140 libs vs v100 for VS2010 that the distributed client uses. You must tailor the project to use v100 runtimes in VS2017. You will get lots of errors and warnings to fix if you compile a converted 3.21 game in any current version of VS.
