 (I _STILL_ need to merge Bargle's code...argh.)

 Take a looksie:
 MacOS X port is in CVS now, but it's not nearly done (but you _can_ limp
 through the game...I played through the first few levels on the Mac).
 Details on building, what's still broken, and who _not_ to bug about it are

 Update: Adam Green sent me the (simpler than you'd think) fix for the
 sound code...I get working sound effects on MacOS X, now. Thanks!

 ...UTPG Dedicated Server now runs on MacOS X. I connected to it and
 walked around with a linux 451 client. Garbage collection is disabled on
 the Mac at the moment, since there is a C++/UnrealScript mirroring
 mismatch somewhere that kills it, but it appears to be functional.

 The MacOSX client, however, terminates "normally" somewhere between a
 return call and the function it's returning to.  :(   Probably a stack
 corruption or a mirroring mismatch triggering that. I'll figure it out.

 This is a long way from done. We'll probably put the dedicated server out
 first so some admins can help us shake out the bugs (since lots of them will
 apply to the client, too). And, obviously, there's no way in hell the client
 will get released in close proximity to UT2003 for the Mac. I'm not getting
 paid for my work on UTPG (Linux or Mac), so go buy ut2003 from MacSoft as a
 sign of your appreciation.  :)

 Server is out. Details here.
 Beta 1 of the Linux client is avaiable. Get it.

Serious Sam:
 The First Encounter: Beta three is out.
 The Second Encounter is now available, too!
 Details are here.
 Time to work on ssam is non-existant, and there will probably not be another
 build for Linux for the foreseeable future, if ever.

Unreal Tournament 2003:
 Release Candidate 4 is looking like it'll be going Gold in a few hours (whew!)
 so we are definitely on track to ship on June 11th. Thanks to James Robrahn
 and his crew for busting my balls to fix all the little things...they found
 a ton of bugs that Infogrames (and a couple hundred thousand gamers) missed
 in the win32 version.

 There were a good number of generic Unix and OpenGL fixes done for the Mac
 version that also apply to the Linux port...I really want to do an
 unofficial Linux patch (2225.1?) that incorporates these fixes if there's
 time, but don't hold me to that.

 Everyone please send love to Gregory S. Read, who suffered with rewriting
 loki_setup to be a Carbon app so we could use it on the UT2003 retail discs.
 Writing MacOS software involves social hurdles in addition to the usual
 technical ones ("Can you change this text to be more descriptive in half
 the words?"...Mac UI considerations are olympic events at times, I swear),
 and Greg, despite changing requirements and fluctuating deadlines, tackled it

 There will be another Linux dedicated server patch (that's compatible with
 Spearhead 2.15), but...I'm fucking swamped. I'll let you know when it's here.

America's Army:
 (Still need to package up a non-Gentoo version of this for Linux...)
 I've made approximately 6,342,092 patches to ut2003 in the past week, and
 most apply to ArmyOps, too, so that all needs to get merged...

Other stuff:
 Looks like I'll be moving to the Unreal Developer Network, as a
 temporary hosting solution (thanks, Vito!) while I figure out about getting
 myself moved somewhere and getting a T-1 line run to that somewhere. Stealing
 electricity is tough work...I wasn't cut out for a life of crime, I guess.
