"Arcade flyers, cabinet design, decals, the box and packaging art are as important as any other part of the software that has been sold over the years; in earlier years of the computer industry, it had to serve as the entire pitch. These are attempts by many groups and individuals,, and the Internet Archive, to capture that unique artwork, even as the software itself lives on."
The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (18.104.22.168:27951), 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 (22.214.171.124:27911), Wireplay (126.96.36.199:27999) and EISA (188.8.131.52:27930) 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 (184.108.40.206:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play.
