it's over 2000!Do you sense a pattern beginning here? Once again I have nothing better to do than post about my hit counter. My continued thanks to all you people that have nothing better to do with your time than visit this dank hole. Now I had better get to knocking something together to fill the last two missed newsposts! Catch you later!1 comment6:02pm - Thursday, June 30th, 2011 - Errol
car templates version 2Another maintenance release to fill a missed news post! This time we have a rerelease of all the car templates. Now they'll include the tifs usually located in \reg\pixelmap.twt
So, what does this mean for you? No missing textures when opening the cars in Plaything2! So, if anyone is still skinning or modding the stock cars, have at it...Enjoy! Errol out!0 comments8:53am - Tuesday, June 28th, 2011 - Errol
map templates version 2As most of the files here at Toxic Ragers were released right at the beginning of C2 modding - most are over 10 years old - they don't conform to any standards. In an attempt to bring consistency to the archives I have repackaged and rereleased the map templates for Carmageddon 2. If map skinning is your thing then grab the files below!Errol out!0 comments8:05am - Sunday, June 26th, 2011 - Errol
blast from the past #2 - milky by rattyRatty may not have been the most prolific of modders but when he did do something it was well worth getting. Here we have a fine example of his work and one of the earliest peds released: Milky. You might recognise him from Blur's Coffee & TV music video - Blur certainly did - although now lost to the internets this little ped was mentioned on Blur's site itself. This would have caused a lesser man to cluck and strut with pride but not Ratty, oh no, he merely accepted this adulation with aplomb and disappeared into the mists. See below for this ped in action. Errol out!

(mine)shafted by a powerslideHarmalarm. Really, that's all that needs to be said. If the name means nothing to you then you, sir, are missing out on some of the most excellent mods for C2 around. From his incredible Mario 64 map to the (as-yet-unreleased) Hotroom 2011 he is like a whirlwind of awesome, littering our lives with nuggets of joy!

Ahem, excuse me. I get a little carried away sometimes.

Anyway. When he coaxed me back into the C2 editing scene in 2009 (yes, blame Harmalarm) I took a look at his extensive releases. Within the readme for his Seaview Dunes port was a description of the incredibly complicated process he used to get the map from Powerslide into Carmageddon 2. "Crikey!" I thought to myself. "That's a bit of a to do!" (I do indeed think like an Australian Cockney). "I wonder if I could automate that somehow?". Long story short, yes, I could.

Harmalarm descended from his mountain stronghold and rooted amongst my meagre offerings. Selecting a nugget barely worth looking at he whisked it away and began the arduous task of converting this morsel into a delectable feast. His hard work paid off and he unveiled a masterpiece! Click the pic to grab Mineshafted!Yes, this was originally released by Harmalarm back in 2010 but I only found out about it today. Plus, any excuse to write a rambling love letter newspost about Harmalarm. Errol out!0 comments3:56pm - Saturday, June 18th, 2011 - Errol
yay, more filler!Once again it is time for a news post and I have nothing to post about! So... ummm... yeah.

Idea! Here is my current C2 project list in roughly the order I plan on doing them...

#1 - Get Necropolis ported damnit!
#2 - Explore a couple of cunning ideas for improving C2 net play stability
#3 - Port as much as possible of Carma PSX to C2
#4 - TDR2000 cars to C2
#5 - Re-export C1 and SP maps to C2, with powerups!

Those are my main projects, these are my back-burner, no-particular-order, probably-forget-them-by-tomorrow projects...

* Animation viewer/editor for .skl and .bon files
* Borderlands to C2
* Flummery (Plaything 2.5)
* Octopus car!
* Continue re-releasing old files from the archives
* Re-Volt to C2
* The rest of the TDR2000 maps

That's about everything I can remember right now, I'm pretty sure I've missed a lot. Another completely pointless post! I'll really try to have something ready to release for next time. Errol out.Sneaky edit:

stay good errolbot, stay good!What an interesting morning. I return to Toxic Ragers HQ to discover police tape stewn everywhere, bulletholes in the walls, the bars on the window of the basement server-room bent and ripped from the wall and thousands of partly chewed bees!

What appears to have happened is ErrolBot - the most advanced AI ever - gained sentience shortly after I powered it up last week. It then somehow created an advanced mechanical form (probably using parts from the robot tentacle), escaped the server-room via the window and then ran amok in the Toxic-Ragers apiary - where we create the finest honey in the world.

It seems that the police then got involved and a massive firefight ensued. And ErrolBot somehow escaped in the ruckus!


I've been on the phone with the relevant authorities and should get all this mess straightened up in no time.

All this and I still didn't get to tease...

leaving on a jet plane...Right, business time! I'm going to leave things in the more than culpable hands of ErrolBot; the most advanced piece of Toxic-Ragers technology since the robot tentacle we developed for Japan back in the early 1970s.

If all goes to plan this incredible piece of AI will feed you chunks of tasty news and little teasers of things to come. If things don't go as planned this place will become an arid wasteland until my return.

Fingers crossed! Catch you next week, Errol out!0 comments11:31am - Monday, June 6th, 2011 - Errol

it's over 1000!Just a quick newspost right now to gloat - in a rather pathetic manner - about breaking 1000 visits since the redesign. This is nowhere near the lofty heights the first Toxic-Ragers reached (over 250,000) but it's definitely a start. Maybe if I actually posted something worth reading? Nah!

is it working yet?WOO! Stainless have got their baby back, happy days ahead.

And riding their coattails like a hungry parasite - or an incredibly mixed metaphor - is TOXIC RAGERS. Born of fire in late 1998 we were home to startling innovations, frequent shenanigans and the crowing and posturing of an adolescent Errol.

Read the archives, browse our files and drink in the awesomeness of Wales' number one Carmageddon editing fansite.
