So it's finally arriving, and what better way to celebrate than by NOT SPOILING IT. Some of us want to (or have to) get it retail, which isn't for over another week. Spoil it and we might just have to bring out the gimp... have fun!

Oh, and I hope among all those portals you won't lose track of what's really important - the new compo!

Oh, it's back alright.


EDIT: the compo rules have changed. re-read the rules. there is also a new post explaining changes to the layout in the forum thread. READ IT.

Whimperings, rumour, innuendo...a desire for a heralded return of something glorious, something delightfully fun. It has laid dormant for a little while now, but it will soon return, along with a couple of surprises.

Stay tuned, TWHL.

After a lot of messing about, I finally added the Map of the Month page. See the sidebar. Get voting for August's MotM!
Also there is a temporary replacement for news.php which mysteriously went missing a while ago...

In case you haven't already noticed, we have some new moderators on the TWHL bandwagon! Penguinboy joined the ranks a little while ago so he could gain access to Atom's rather archaic code (sorry buddy!). As such, progress on TWHL3 has steamrolled ahead very nicely.

The second appointment to the ranks of TWHL mod is Strider, one of the designers working on TWHL3 with me. Congratulations to both members!

The following bugs have been fixed, after suffering from them for ages:

1. The removal of an ">" character being displayed after URLs of certain length. This was caused by invalid HTML being produced by the forum line splitter.
2. The removal of the copious amounts of slashes being placed before quotes in bio's. You'll have to go into your bio and remove the slashes manually, but they'll be gone for good now, so feel free to use as many quotes as you like.

I also enlarged the size of the input box for the bios, it was tiny.

Enjoy the bugfixes! - Penguinboy

UPDATE: If you logout and look at the signup page, you'll see the shiny new captcha code! Hopefully that'll stop those darn spambots...

If you've been following the forums, you'd know that a little Mini-compo has been progressing. The results for the latest one (design a hallway) have just been posted, so now would be a good time to take a look.

Certain mini-compo insiders tell me that TWHL users can expect more in the near future, so keep an eye out! Congratulations to the winners.

Captain P, Daubster, and MuzzleFlash have been promoted to forum moderators. A big hand.

The competition results have just been posted.

Excuse the delay with the competition results everyone: been rather busy lately. However, since there's been a delay, I'm planning a small treat for the results that'll be sure to please some of you.

Stay tuned!

Well, Half-Life is still kicking and TWHL is proving that: we have for you a brand new tutorial concerning the coding of fog in the Half-Life engine.

Thanks go out to Highlander, not only for the brilliant content, but the patience he exhibited while waiting for it to go up.

Check it out!

Up for some old-school HL1DM action? Sick of not finding servers? Orpheus, in conjunction with Muzzleflash, has organised a spot of Team DeathMatch on Muzz's HL1DM server.

This is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a bit of aging fun with members of the HL mapping community, so I hope you all get a chance to jump on-board!

All details, including IP, rules and map rotation, can be found here.

Happy fragging!

Okay, there's a new competition. If we don't get many people entering this one, we'll stop bothering organising them, so get motivated.

Are you a talented PHP coder with too much time on your hands? Want to help TWHL? Then visit this thread!

Ok, first up, the Contact Us page is currently borked for reasons unknown, so until Alex gets around to fixing it, you may contact me should you need to.

Secondly, we'll have a new HL1 compo up soon. This may also be opened up to Source as well, but it hasn't been decided yet (you can pretty much bet that it will be). However, the new compo will probably start sometime soon next year, rather than cram it into what's left of this year.

On that note, have a great New Year everyone! See you in 2007.
