New OldUnreal OpenGL & OpenAL Patches 31 May 2005 Hellscrag
OldUnreal has released major new patches for Unreal & Unreal Tournament. Not only do the patches offer the latest OpenGL support for Unreal, they also offer two new sound systems for Unreal and Unreal Tournament: OpenAL, which offers fully functional surround sound for the first time and support for EAX environments, and FMOD, an alternative system that, for the first time, offers support for Unreal's awesome original echo effects. The patches are still at first beta stage, and fuller features will be offered (particularly for FMOD) in future releases.
Get involved at UnrealSP.Org 29 May 2005 Hellscrag
On the forums we are currently running a poll regarding what article(s) or section(s) to add to the site to mark our fourth anniversary, which is coming in June. Many of the options, however, may require us to take on new staff. Amongst the positions that may be becoming available are: an art scout, to receive submissions of fan art; a seasoned member of the community to act as interviewer for a number of mappers, authors and project leaders; and a new fan fiction reviewer, to add to rather than replace the work done by Enigma, following his schema and his high expectations and standard of analysis.
Are you a regular visitor to this site who would be willing to help out? All positions require a certain amount of initiative and there are no rewards in particular (apart from a full position on the team page), but your contribution to the running of the site would be welcomed. You'd need to be able to remain a regular on our forums. If you're interested in getting involved, or would just like to vote on what the site should be doing next, please get in touch via the poll thread!
