Re: {Arch} Clan RTCW-ET

I think the /dev/arch/ thing is a rather good idea.  It would certainly stand out.

/dev/arch/.:GUN-KATA:.

However, it might be a bit long.

I was trying to think of a way to represent an arch using ascii characters, perhaps something like:

{/^}.:GUN-KATA:.

BTW - I go by .:GUN-KATA:. in ET.  Infact, I'm thinking of changing to that instead of red_over_blue.  I've had red_over_blue for a couple years now, and am thinking it is time for a change.

Re: {Arch} Clan RTCW-ET

but i would choose something more nerdish for the clan name smile)

like we /dev/arch/player1

or /arch/et/ttys0

or maybe we just take the hexdezimal representiation of arch as clan name or the utf encoding in plain binary style smile)

Re: {Arch} Clan RTCW-ET

I have created an Arch Linux Enemy Territory Clan Wiki, which can be found here.  If you join the clan, talk to me on #archlinux on freenode and I'll give you the username and password.  It is password protected so that enemy Covert Ops cannot steal our tactics wink  If you join the clan, please feel free to add pages or edit the ones that are there, that's the whole point of a wiki after all.

Anyway, anyone else interesting in joining?  It is going to be alot of fun, but we could use another 3 or 4 members to get this thing going.

Re: {Arch} Clan RTCW-ET

Well, some of you might have noticed that the xqf package in the repos doesn't support ET 2.56.  xqf can be used to find servers without having to actually run ET, a nice tool when trying to organize a game on irc.

I made a package for the cvs version of xqf and am hosting it on my machine.  I won't put it in incoming since xqf isn't actually out of date, it just doesn't do what we want it to wink

Once installed, go into Preferences -> Games -> Enemy Territory -> Options and change the "Master Protocol Version" to 83

Download the cvs package and install with pacman here:

http://26rca.zapto.org/misc/arch/xqf-cvs-1.pkg.tar.gz

or use this PKGBUILD and build your own:

pkgname=xqf
pkgver=cvs
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="XQF is a Quake/Quake World/Quake2/Quake3 server browser and launcher for X11"
depends=('gtk' 'qstat' 'gdk-pixbuf')
source=(http://www.fragit.net/files/xqf-current.tar.gz)
url="http://www.linuxgames.com/xqf/"
build() {
        cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-current
        ./configure --prefix=/usr
        make || return 1
        make prefix=$startdir/pkg/usr install
}
