    file's are here http://www.catb.org/~esr/ski/ , but unless you got a linux install, or cygwin installed to compile for windows, you can't do anything with it.

    Thnx man.

    Can someone pliz maybe download the file and make it available for the rest of us with plain old windows??? That'd be cool.

    I'm not at home right now, am on campus and the pc's here don't have cygwin installed on them, so there's nothing much I can do till I get back home to my rig from here for now lol...

    NQR 4v4 leugue @ www.nqr.nu
    1v1 leugues @ http://duelmania.quakeworld.nu/

    NQR is startting it new season sunday and every year more and more people come back to play quake1 caus all new games get bored. so probaply 100+ clans every year in NQR.
    Id say, its a better community than quake3
    But it's hard getting into quake1 now, if ur not a experianced Quake player. most quake1 players play over 6 years. all Division 1 are players who play for 10 years already.
    6 Divisions this year :D

    4v4 is very nice, It's the best teamplay game ive ever played, and even people who don't play quakeworld just come and spec official matches caus they are just AMAZING. like u are watching pre programmed actions. it's crazy. It's more of a sport these days :p


    Just look @ http://www.challenge-tv.com/
    QW is Number 1 of posted demos and favourite game to watch mad skillz

    Intrested getting into QuakeWorld? just contact me @ IRC Quakenet
    my nickname is "Juggernaut"

    If wana see some nice movies go here:
    http://home.quicknet.nl/qn/prive/roely.star/movie.html (137mb)

    http://gamefiles.blueyonder.co.uk/blueyondergames/trailers/movies/quakeworld/dde2.zip (348mb)

    *Old-School UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!*
    With the recent "resurrection" of Old-School games to the Game Boy Advance such as Super Mario Bros., Metroid, Ice Climber, and several others, demand for the original copies of the game has gone up tenfold. A local Classic Video Gaming store, Fun Unlimited, sold all 32 of their copies of Super Mario Bros. in the one cartridge format in fifteen minutes yesterday. They expect a mixed new/used SMB shipment in on Monday, which will contain over fifty copies of that game alone. They expect it to sell faster than the last shipment. They have a copy of Super Metroid going for $50!!!!! That's a little too rich for my blood(good thing I already own it! :p) They also have an EXTREMELY RARE copy of Gunstar Heroes for the Sega Genesis, as well as it's sequel...WHICH WASN'T RELEASED IN THE U.S.!!!!!!!! Good luck finding a working Mega Drive in PAL format, though...:(

    Just to let you kids know!!!!!!!!!!! :p :) :D

    The House of The Dead
    Virtua Cop 2

    I do enjoy them "railroad shooters".

    Awesome classics to remember included the Mechwarrior 2 series (31st Century, GBL and Mercs). Mercs was the first game I played online with. LOVED IT. :)

    I also recall a classic simulation/strategy game called Outpost from Sierra on my Uncle's PC. Another game I played on his PC which nobody mentioned was Wing Commander: Armada. I loved the split screen action.

    I'm still playing the Street Fighters and KOFs (98 and onwards, only.)~

    Yeah...but the game was in PAL Cartridge format. You'd have to upload the entire cart's worth of data and encode it for compatability with an Emulator. That's a REAL PAIN THE @$$. ;)

    Wing Commander Privateer (open source)

    100% free, open source port of Wing Commander Privateer. Linux, Mac, and Windows NT+...no more DOS dependency. Updated graphics...its no Doom3/HL2, but a much better space sim experience.

    I discovered this courtesy a Slashdot article the other day.

    Like, old Rockstar games dude!

    For all you Rockstar games and GTA fans, you can download the original GTA, Wild Metal and GTA II from Rockstar now since they're kinda old and considered abandonware in a way, at this here URL, I'm going to start playin GTA II tonight, a few friends of mine were crazy about it when it first came out, and one of em who never played it like me is crazy about it right now, so I'm hopefully going to get crazy about it tonight!!! :D

    Well, in a bit of a hurry though, so I can't exactly get the pics for all the oldies I'm playing,(out of all of them Fatal Fury 2, Eternal Champions, Bart Simpson and the alien invasion - I think, and last but not least Alladin, which I'm sure you all remember, I'm playing it again!!! :D ;))
    Will hopefully post them next time I'm here. :)
