Every Vietnam movie ever made...

...apparently HAS to have Credence Clearwater Revival playing as the soundtrack. I watched The Post with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks last night. The beginning of the movie shows a squad of Marines in Vietnam gearing up to go out patrolling that night. What's playing in the background? CCR, of course.

If it's not CCR, it's always Gimmie Shelter by the Rolling Stones.

And then this pops up as a featured story in my Firefox window.

I don't recall the specifics of q2max_hires_textures.pak (from 2006) but if you right-click on the link your browser should have a "Save as..." option.

Hey Quadz, I just checked the downloads (q2 max hires texture pak.) was looking for a pak that makes q2 a bit more hd or just better. Is there such a thing? and when I click on that it takes me to a page of coding.
