Memento_Mori and myT have released version 0.1 of their 2D Demo Viewer called U2DDV (Uber 2D Demo Viewer).

Other maps will have a gray background, but I have no doubt this will be addressed in the future.
Id Software released an update today that requires you to reinstall the plugin. Just giving you a heads-up. As usual a few premium maps have been added, one of which some of you might remember quite well from the Christmas period: Distant Screams .This is a stripped down Silent Night.

For the second time around, Silent Night is being spawned all over the place, but it’s not only CTF that’s treated to a winter map, also oldskool map The Edge sees the light of day, and may I say a very bright light since it has many cute decorations, aimed to cheer you up while gibbing or freezing opponents. And not just that, you can do it as Santa himself!
HO HO HO! *BLAM* 🙂 Read More
