Hi,

In the tutorial is needed new model and sounds.
But the link is broken...
Is possible someone reupload this for me?

The necessary file was hosted at the shub-hub, which Spirit closed down. Willem has acted as successor with creating quaketastic.com

I'll get with Orion, the author of the tutorial as soon as I can see about him uploading the file to quaketastic, and I'll edit the tutorial link.

In the meantime, you can change the precaches to the laser sounds used by the enforcer in enforcer.qc, the blast and hit sounds, it'll let you see the effect of the gun, with mostly suitable sounds and you can keep on having fun!

I think it'd be great if i3d (seeing as the tutorials are hosted here) could host the required files for the tutorials too.

It's not like tutorials bloat out to a TC (OH IS THAT A CHALLENGE?).. so the amount of data shouldn't really be an issue? :)
Always keeps the files available if the tutorial is that way.

it could, if you like waiting 10 minutes for the file

Uh, just don't use 3DDownloads or whatever it's called, host the file on the site, I doubt the required files are large enough to cause even a minor dent in the sites traffic

There is the question of offending our host; its the same reasoning why we don't really host sites.

Also to be frank, the FTP has been spotty.

Perhaps I will just sometime soon download all tutorial files and archive them on my machine, and if anything happens to the original, reupload them as necessary.
