Fleetcaster system to make
Minions debut live Fleetspy LMCTF Match
The first live
"broadcast" of a Quake II match using the FleetSpy streaming demo
viewer is slated for tonight. Here's the deal, from the Loki's Minions Capture the Flag
Do you remember the days when
you had to download demos? Remember when you had to wait for them to be
recorded before you saw them? Those days are over because Nachos have released Fleetspy v1.0b
(500k zip) which makes demos viewable (even to 28.8 users) immediately
without download! It means that an unlimited number of observers could
start recording a match as it happens, with about a minute or so
latency. The instructions are ridiculously easy.
The premiere Fleetcast will be
on the Nachos server at 9pm EST on Monday the 30th where HD plays PTH.
LMCTF 4.0 required to view the broadcast.

Best single player Quake
= No-Life. Nachos/HL is on the air!
As if Q2 wasn't
enough of a TimeSucker™, I just can't put Half-Life down. It's the most
engaging single player Quake engine game ever, hands down. It's such an
immersive, spooky game, I've actually had the hair on the back of my
neck stand up several times. That's freaky!
I've also played a
good bit of multiplayer Half-Life, and let me tell you, it's pretty
darn fun. The latest patch seems to put Half-Life on par with Classic
Quake, and we're only one week into the game. When Team Fortress hits
the streets this bad boy is going to create some major waves.
Anyway, we're digging
having No-Life so much, we just have to drag a few of you in with us.
Nachos/HL was setup this weekend, and it's running pretty nice. We've
got an 8 player limit right now, but as we tweak it up, I imagine we'll
raise that limit to 12-16 players. We've even setup a new forum on the BBS
to chat all about the game.
You can find Nachos/HL
on either WON or Gamespy's server lists, or connect direct at

FleetSpy/FleetCaster programs are a system that allow a q2 demo to be
posted to a public server. It just happens to have the property that
the demo need not be finished recording, nor does the client need to
have downloaded the entire demo in order to view it.
This means that a 28.8 user can start viewing a 4 MB demo immediately
without having to dl the whole thing. It also means that an observer
could start recording a match, and many clients can connect to the
FleetCaster to view a game as it happens, with about a minute or so
Grab the client here: ftp://ftp.nachos.net/fleetcaster/fleetspy.zip
Follow the directions in the readme, and connect to the default server.
We have posted 2 demos for your viewing pleasure, one shows a near
perfect flag grab on meltdown, the other is a demo of the recent NR vs.
HD rag match.
We will keep you posted about upcoming live matches. We hoping that we
can broadcast some of the top five OGL matches this week or next.
At this time, we will not be distributing the software that allows you
to record a demo the the Caster, as our beta server could become
overloaded. But, if you are playing a closely followed match, then by
all means email me firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll try to set you up.
You can also send bug reports and comments to the above address, or
just leave them on the Nachos
