The Coven: Disposable Heroes, Deadlode 2, and more Quake II Total Conversion Mods

The Coven was an independent computer games developer with its roots in the Doom and Quake communities. Originally founded by John "Gestalt" Bye in late 1996, The Coven worked on a free Doom II add-on before moving on to Quake and going commercial in the summer of 1997. The Coven was closed in the winter of 1999, and all their work is now available for free.

Australian Quake 2 Clan Oxygen: What is the Online Quake Scene? (for the Absolute Newbie)

The online quake scene, in its simplest form, is a bunch of people who all like playing the same game against each other (or with each other) over the internet. Clans are really just a group of people who get along well together, frag well together, share a common interest, organise wars, have fun and muck around. The last thing you need to know, is how to express your emotions - be it in the game, on message boards, in email or sms - from now on, smilies will be the tool you use to show your heartfelt pleasure, absolute disgust, indifference or sheer joy about the goings on in your world.

OZQuake: Fraggin Australian Style…

The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (202.139.41.242:27951), that have regular groups of players who hang out and have a frag or two.

Instagib seems to be the mod of the moment, a server side mod (no download needed, you just connect and play) with our own server, Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27911), Wireplay (202.12.147.16:27999) and EISA (203.166.224.41:27930) being the pick of the pack.

GX is still going strong, something about the skill and discipline of the game keeps people keen, and Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play.
