ArmyOps: Yeah, yeah, it's coming... Postal 1: Running With Scissors, myself, and the MacNinjas spent some time moving the original Postal to MacOS X. If you want it, the complete game is on the MacWorld "Total Tiger" disc, which hits newstands today, July 26th. Make sure you get the right magazine, since this is a special edition of MacWorld and not the usual issue. You can buy it online here. This is currently the only place you can get a real MacOS X version of Postal 1, and it's the full single-player game, not a demo, so don't miss it! Postal 2: If you bought the "Meal Deal #3: Minority Combo" disc from gopostal.com, it has installers for Mac, Linux, and Windows included. This went to press today, so those will be shipping sometime soon. If you have a Windows-only AW disc, you can use these installers: Apocalypse Weekend installer for MacOS X: http://0day.icculus.org/postal2/postal2aw-macosx-installer.zip Apocalypse Weekend installer for Linux: http://0day.icculus.org/postal2/postal2aw-linux-installer.tar.bz2 The installers will patch your Postal 2 install to 1409.1 if needed. Unreal Tournament 2004: Spent some more time with GL_EXT_framebuffer_object, and fixed some of the remaining ut2004 issues...the blocky shadows were caused by rendering the final shadow textures as GL_NEAREST instead of GL_LINEAR...now they match the Direct3D renderer's appearance. I also got all the UnrealScript-based render targets to stop drawing upside down, which fixes most of the rest of the issues. If I could just figure out why the Hellbender license plate is corrupted, I'd be golden. Second Life: Here's 3k words worth of pictures: http://icculus.org/~icculus/tmp/screenie2.jpg http://icculus.org/~icculus/tmp/secondlife-lnx-screenie.jpg http://icculus.org/~icculus/tmp/secondlife-lnx-screenie2.jpg Other stuff: First off, John hit his fundraising goal of 4000 bucks! I saw on his blog several people mentioning that they came there through this .plan, which is touching; I'm glad I helped in some small way. Even though he's met his goal, donations are still accepted and go to cancer research. Details are at his blog, which, again, you should read even if you don't plan on pledging any money: http://overcode.yak.net/3 Second, go read The Time Traveler's Wife. Now, about this Hot Coffee bullshit. I hate having to be the voice of reason here...but GTA was promoting ultra-violence, sexism, and racism already. Now someone unlocks a little badly-rendered, soft-core porn and it becomes a national emergency? If you couldn't get worked up about San Andreas before now, you really REALLY missed your window for righteous indignation, Hillary. --ryan.
