Considering that the Dapak2 update
front seems to be getting a bit irregular, I thought that I'd upload something
tasty for you followers to get stuck into. Completely non-Quake2 related, its an MP3
of some music I was working on the other day. If you like the works of Orbital,
Boards of Canada, or the Age of Empires Music [:)] then thisll be your cup of tea.
It weighs in at 1.382Mb, and is in Mono 44.1Khz 16bit. In order to play it, youll
need and MP3 player like Winamp. For
all you people who have Winamp it might be a good idea to shift-click the link, and to
download a local copy of the MP3 before listening. I was going to upload the larger and longer stereo version, but I figured it wouldnt be worth it. As a bit of background info,
the techno group .clone is just me and a mate [Jon Pepper] who kinda mess around,
and call the end result 'experimental music'. Just click on the link below and grab your very own 'copy'right edition :)
If you really like it, then drop me an email here. And for all you techno geezers out there who want to know a bit more the tune was made with samples taken from the following machines: Boss DR550mkII drum machine, Aleshr16 drum machine, Korg X5 synth, Yamaha DX27 synth and the Roland Juno 106 for the bass.

What!? Only a week and already a new update? Man, I feel like Blue already...did you miss me? Of course not...
Hehe, congratulations to the dude who fell to my stupid april joke :) So here's the truth: Dennis left in an amicable terms and all his levels was made by himself. Hammer that into your head or burn it to your butt or whatever, just remember that :)
Ok, seriously now... I really hate to say this but please, oh please don't e-mail me asking how to make Quake levels or how to play multiplayer game. Obviously you have access to the net, so it only takes a little to nothing to search around and obtain all the necessary information yourself. Here's a couple of links to help you getting started with building maps:
But, always feel free to mail me if you have something to say about my levels or want to know how certain things are made, I'm always glad to help. Come to uncle ztn, pick up the soap...
I exchanged a couple of words today with Danimal, he's like busy as hell with his uni stuff. Also had word or two with Headshot on Monday. You can expect a new map from him real soon now. Map's looking great and it's named like "Muscular Gay" or something like that. That map along with the "Grind" and my "Killing Machine" was made for the DaPak2, but you know how things vent. And there's my new map waiting to be released, hope it's gonna happen sometime next week.
So there, see you all soon. Take care and stay well.

Nah, we've decided to stick with the DaPak theme after all.
Forget my yesterday's update.

Hello! New month, new page. And that not only means a html page but
a whole new page of life to the DaPak team too. Well, Copy, Danimal and myself
put our ugly heads together and decided that there should be no more DaPak as we used to know it.
We've decided to start a whole new project. As you might know id recently dropped the .pak file format
in favor of more flexible and space saving .zip format. So, following their footsteps we came to
the conclusion that DaPak should be renamed to DaZip. But, not only name has changed, no sir.
DaZip will be Single player mod! And even more, it will use Unreal engine as will all future id
titles. We're currently exchanging e-mails with American McGee to be our replacement for Headshot.
Some of you might know that Headshot was being "let go" from DaPak because it came to our knowledge that all his
levels was made by his girlfiend BabyGun and we were not seeing what we wanted anyways. Yes, that's right, he simply put his name to the text files
as an author and didn't give any credits to the poor girl. That bastard!
