More Quake 4 goodies

The console and .cfg file have a host of tweaks and tricks ready for the user to explore. We outline some of the basics you should know.

They are obviously tweaking a windows file, but I've tried out several of these and yes, they do work with the Linux version as well. One of the most handy is the startup addendum:

+set com_allowConsole 1 +disconnect

This of course allows the "~" console pulldown aaannd, the best is the +disconnect that bypasses that 3 manufacturer intro. Much better than hitting "ESC" three times. Big Grin

That Link.

And my gawd, someone actually took over 700 screenshots and put together this walkthru.

Where was this before I finished yesterday!? Actually quake 4 was quite easy to navigate and figure out what to do next. I'm either getting better at this kind of thing, or quake 4 was just easy to follow. Big Grin The doors and "pathways" were lighted, many times green for open and red for locked, so the course was kinda obvious. None of the twist and turns, retracing steps, and guess work we found in Doom.

Anyway, that walkthrough here.

96Boards SBC showcases Mediatek’s deca-core Helio X20

MediaTek launched the fastest open-spec SBC to date with a 96Boards development board that runs Android on its deca-core Cortex-A53 and -A72 Helio X20 SoC. The “Helio X20 Development Board” is MediaTek’s first 96Boards form-factor single-board computer, and the most powerful open-spec hacker SBC to date. Although we’ve seen some fast 64-bit SoCs among 96Boards SBCs, such as the HiKey, based on an octa-core, Cortex-A53 HiSilicon Kirin 6220, the Helio X20 Development Board offers an even more powerful Helio X20 system-on-chip processor.

Leftovers: OSS and Sharing

  • New projects, security, and more OpenStack news
  • LibreOffice 5.1.4 Released with Over 130 Fixes
    The first release candidate represented 123 fixes. Some include a fix for a crash in Impress when setting a background image. This occurred with several popular formats in Windows and Linux. Caolán McNamara submitted the patches to fix this in the 5.1 and 5.2 branches. David Tardon fixed a bug where certain presentations hung Impress for extended periods to indefinitely by checking for preconditions earlier. Laurent Balland-Poirier submitted the patches to fix a user-defined cell misinterpretation when using semicolon inside quotes.
  • Open source. Open science. Open Ocean. Oceanography for Everyone and the OpenCTD
    Nearly four years ago, Kersey Sturdivant and I launched a bold, ambitious, and, frankly, naive crowdfunding initiative to build the first low-cost, open-source CTD, a core scientific instrument that measures salinity, temperature, and depth in a water column. It was a dream born from the frustration of declining science funding, the expense of scientific equipment, and the promise of the Maker movement. After thousands of hours spent learning the skills necessary to build these devices, hundreds of conversations with experts, collaborators, and potential users around the world, dozens of iterations (some transformed into full prototypes, others that exist solely as software), and one research cruise on Lake Superior to test the housing and depth and temperature probes, the OpenCTD has arrived.
