    A bunch of misc updates and one possible.
    I see this on UbiSoft's page, but don't see how to take advantage of the "free weekend".

    Rollcage Redux
    https://www.codemonkey.me.uk/rollcage_redux.php
    Welcome to the primary download source for Rollcage Redux - a reboot of the late nineties classic arcade racer. Click on the link to fuel up
    Also several other things on the same page:
    https://www.codemonkey.me.uk/view_blog.php?blog_id=14
    Or free stuff! Well, some free stuff at least. Like a lot of coders I'm a bit of a tinkerer, I have to be working on things a lot of the time to keep the old brain ticking over - the world's a bit of a boring place otherwise, Trump and Brexit took care of that. Over the years I've built a fair few things that might be of interest, so here are just a few of the more recent of them for you to try if you'd like.

    Arturia Assistant
    What is it? I've been using Arturia's synthesizer software quite a lot recently, including Analog Lab, Mini and Pigments. All great works in their own right with incredibly impressive audio production. However, trying to navigate the literally thousands of presets that come with these instruments is just completely overwhelming. So I wrote something to try to make all that just a little bit easier in terms of improvements to the categorisation of the presets, and sorting the wheat from the chaff. So now let's dig into the meat of what this is all about. Arturia already offers some impressive categorisation of sounds. While it's not your categorisation, it is worth getting to know how Arturia categorises sound styles as it will be of benefit to you if you understand their perspective.

    GRIP
    GRIP pretty much was my life between 2015 and 2019. A spiritual successor to the game Rollcage which I worked on back in 1998, this has been by far the most challenging work I've ever produced. Due to funding difficulties we were very under-staffed and it was often a gruelling experience. But let me tell you, it turned out to be a bloody good game and I'm really pleased we stayed the course and ploughed through all the obstacles. So if you'd like some intense arcade, combat racing action then head on over to Steam and pick yourself up a copy; GRIP I'll be writing more about the game's development in the coding blog over the coming months.

    Ultra
    Back in the day, well around 2005, I wrote a game called Ultra. An unapologetic homage to Atari's superb Tempest. This game is a rush to play and got reviewed very well indeed in Retro Gamer magazine. I was right proud of that, let me tell you. Have a download, but just make sure you play with a mouse, otherwise you'll get annihilated. I'll be working on this game again sometime over the next few months, to bring it up-to-date with contemporary graphics effects and better music, so keep an eye out for that. You can find an archive of the original site for the game here; Ultra or head straight to the download here; Download

    Imagina
    I worked on an image viewer and editor a while back that started with the idea that I'd never written any real image processing code before yet the subject is an interesting and complex one. Plus I'd a ton of photos that needed editing. I wanted something good to edit pictures with, without having to scratch my head all the time with something like PhotoShop. So I made this thing called Imagina. These days I've pretty much switched over to using Adobe's Lightroom for photo editing so Imagina is no longer under active development. That said, it's still tremendously useful so I've recently cleaned it up and recompiled it as a 64-bit executable so you can work on some very large images without it ever being an issue.

    Image Armada
    Image Armada drove me round the f#cking twist for something like ten years or more. The pet project of a good artist friend of mine, I developed this for him to realise his vision of virtual art galleries and exhibitions that anyone could create. It started as something simple but then grew and grew until there was no more road ahead. I finally stopped working on it back in 2014, but even laid idle for so long I think it holds up really well still. In the end it was producing galleries that people could walk around in full 3D within their web browser - this is pretty, bloody cool even today.

    Welcome! Join Hi-Rez Studios in celebrating over twenty years of the TRIBES Universe! Below you will find links to download the legacy games in the series. We love these games and hope to let you share the experience of the World's Fastest Shooter.


    Here are several free games mixed in with paid games. All the links give me the same URL, so I'm only giving one:

    Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok
    Heroin's Quest is a Quest For Glory clone. Some of you who saw the Sierra 1988 catalog might know that the original name for the Quest for Glory game was "Hero's Quest", but got changed because of a board game of the same name.

    This week on Epic, a triple feature. "Iratus: Lord of the Dead", "Geneforge 1:Mutagen" (remake), and "Hood:Outlaws and Legends". Indiegala is giving away "Interstellaria".
    Also Quake 4 is temporarily free for Xbox insider users on Windows.
    https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2022/06/30/join-the-quake-4-xbox-insider-preview

    Finally, I want to put out that Epic is actually giving away a few more games than is shown on the prominent "free games" link, but you have to browse and set the price for "free" to see them.

    I've heard good things about this, but never got around to buying it. It's from the people who made the Exile/Avernum series. This looks like a remake, much how Exile was remade into Avernum. All the RPGs by Spiderweb I've played seem to be based around the same engines, but they are really good at making quality RPGs.
    Also note that you can download the DOS/win9x version of Exile here as it's been released as freeware. Note that I do recommend the Exile series, I played it in the late '90s on the Mac and I enjoyed it.

    Apparently the Xbox Insider thing is also giving away the latest Wolfenstein. I haven't joined up because I don't have an xbox, but it says the PC version of Quake 4 and Wolfenstein. You need to use the "xbox insider hub" to claim both.

    Leisure Suit Larry III is being given away on Indiegala. Looks like the original from 30 years ago, not the remake but they were good R-rated games back in the day before the ERSB ratings. They aren't X or NC-17, but contain adult themes that skirt the edge like many R-Rated movies in the late '80s and early '90s.

    This week on Epic, a double feature. "Ancient Enemy" an RPG Card battler (those have been around since the NES era, but I don't know if they made it out of Japan) and "Killing Floor 2", yet another MMO FPS shooter in the vein of Counterstrike. Also there appears to be some cosmetic DLC for World of Warships available to celebrate a Transformers movie.

    EDIT:Steam is also giving away a premium DLC for the FTP game Minion Masters

    Indiegala is giving away Leisure Suit Larry 5. They are still giving away LSL3 as well. Be warned, the Leisure Suit Larry series is definitely rated "M", with sexual themes and humor. No actual nudity, but it skirts the line and is NSFW.
