Tread Marks Updates

By Longbow,

Happy New Year! :) 2000, here we come! The Tread Marks Shareware Demo is almost ready to go, and if all goes well it should be available for download on New Year's Day. It has quite a bit more than Test 2.1, including a new map (entitled "Hell Crossing"), five totally new weapons (Air Strike, Heavy Flamer, Shadow Keeper, Mass Driver, and the Wasps), a re-done Ram Drill, mouse look camera mode, three new Tanks including a Liquid Class Tank, announcer voices, full single player game options including selectable skill levels and the Ladder competition mode, and more... Keep an eye out!

Mailing List Troubles

By Longbow,

We had a little trouble with adding people to our info mailing list after our web server was upgraded recently, so if you tried entering your e-mail to receive product updates and info after November 9th and didn't receive a confirmation e-mail, you weren't added to the list and should re-enter your e-mail address again. Currently you'll need to reply to the confirmation e-mail you'll receive to finalize the subscription (our info list is very low volume, and we don't give your e-mail address to anyone else).

New AOL Instant Messenger Chat Room

By Longbow,

We've added an AOL Instant Messenger Chat Room to our web site, so we now have real time chat in addition to our bulletin board forums. Just scroll down and hit the "Chat Room" button on the AIM console at the bottom of the menu bar, and you can chat with anyone else who has AIM and has entered the chat room. Note that you don't need AOL to use this, just AIM, which is a lot like ICQ. Let us know what you think!
