||WHAT?! An Update?!
| Yeesh. And I thought my previous update schedule was lousy.
A quick summary of the last year:
1) MassiveLAN went good - 4th Place in the UT2004 Tourney. Not bad at all.
2) PSF Mirrors went down in September, but of course, Project2612 came to be in November.
The site is enormously popular - 20,000 hits a day. F'n right.
3) Seeing someone, hopefully... Time will tell if it pans out or not. I hope it does.
4) I'm moving a couple blocks away into an actual home later this month (The 28th.)
No more apartments! \o/
I've updated the links as far as I know. No idea when I'll write here again, but I try to
be reasonable about it.
Till whenever, people call me...

||Great American Bash, MassiveLAN 80
figure I'll do a quick update here, just before MassiveLAN, just so I
can get some thoughts down here while they're still fresh on my mind.
1) Great American Bash. If you follow wrestling and the WWE, you know
that they hosted the Great American Bash here on the 24th, five years
to the day the last PPV (WWF Fully Loaded 1999) was here, as long as
you don't count one WCW one here in 2000 or 2001. My experiences:
a) Decent seats. $30, a bit high up, but still a good view of the ring
action, and I'm even on camera in the Nunzio/Paul London match that I
at first thought was a Dark match, but turned out was on Sunday Night
Heat: I'm little more then a black splotch though.
b) I sat near a bunch of rather charming folks who cheered the heels
and booed the faces. All throughout the Chris Benoit/Orlando Jordon I
was treated to chants of "Waffles!" which had to have referred to
Benoit, but I'm not sure how. When Jordon won, I got chants of "OJ Did
it!" which were also present in the Batista/JBL main event.
c) The crowd booed when the copyright notice came up, since for those
moments (And occasionally during the matches) the screens were
apparently the PPV feeds as well. That's Buffalo for you: Downright
d) The fireworks are LOUD. Really, REALLY loud. They don't sound bad on
TV, but they're about a thousand times louder in person. The very start
and Batista's entrance literally shook the arena, and Booker T's
entrance bathed the whole arena in an orange glow for about 30 seconds.
e) Even though they're heels, I find the whole controversey over
Muhammad Hassan (AKA Mark Copani) ridiculous. Wrestling isn't exactly a
realistic thing - sure, the guys are athletes and have legitimate skill
and the like, but UPN decided to air the coverage unaltered, (Unless
you're in the UK or Australia) then WWE got to take the bullet for it.
I feel pretty bad that UPN may have very well cost him and Shawn
"Khosrow" Daivari their jobs, and I honestly hope that they're at least
repackaged. They're both young, both have talent, and both got good mic
skills (Though I'm only guessing in Daiviri's case - he only spoke
Farsi on WWE programming.) I enjoyed booing them as heels, because they
sold their gimmicks well, and did have legitimate skill. So here's to
hoping that, if WWE doesn't bow under pressure (They're still debating
it apparently) that they at least repackage them. Hell, Iron Shiek was
big for years. Seargeant Slaughter's Pro-Iraqi turn during the early
90s was hot, but apparently 15 years later we're too politically
correct for that now. It sickens me.
f) Not GAB related, but this needs to be said anyway. The Eugene
character is old, axe it already please.
2) MassiveLAN, as of this post, is about 80 hours away and counting.
It's gonna be big, and I'll hopefully have a good time and lots of
pictures for whoever wants em. It's still not too late to sign up - you
can click the link in the sidebar if you're interested.
That'll do it for this update I guess. Seeya!

||Holy crap! A NON-Bimonthly update?
Twice in a row?!
pretty unusual, eh? Let's run the gamut of what I've done:
1) College first semester: Done. Didn't do too well in the classes I
wasn't interested in (Why did they make me take Math and English when I
don't need to know no fuckin' english & my maff is gud? 2+2=11ty 6,
rite?) but I did peachy in my Computer courses. Quick example of what I
had to learn:
Don't say I didn't warn you.
2) I cleaned about five years worth of crap from my closet - which
still isn't fully cleaned - to make room to put my AC in. Because when
the temperature is 90 degrees, the humidity making it 100+, and the PC
being on making it about 110, that's too fucking much.
3) Someone I know is selling some swag and I offered to buy two parts
of it - A AMD 64 3000+ and a GeForce 6800 GT for about $500 even. Let's
hope I get one or both.
UPDATE - 6/19/05: I didn't get the AMD 64,
but I DID get the GeForce 6800 GT, which I quickly clocked to Ultra,
and a Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro instead, for $400. UT never looked or
sounded so pretty...
4) I added some code to make the one liners here a bit more random. The
page looks funky when I edit it, but it looks fine when you look at it
- so that's peachy with me. There's 101 of them in all as of 6/19 -
collect them all, or just be a cheap dickhead and look at the source, I
5) Removed some old code. I mean, really old code. Code that, quite
frankly, I forgot what it does.
About it for this update, which is more then usual. I might update the
page with new one-liners, but those alone won't warrant an update, so
until next REAL update (Which will either be just before or after
MassiveLAN) I am the King of Terrors, AKA...
- Dark Pulse
||Life, The Universe, and Nothing
month goes by, another update. Let's see...
1) First semester in college: Nearly done. Score. I've had enough
AS/400 for one semester, yeesh.
2) MassiveLAN is going to
rock. I'm gonna be there. I'm gonna celebrate my birthday there. How
about you show up and bring me a gift? If you're a woman, no gift is
3) [A|K]Leviathan has released a new version of Siege for UT2004. We
actually played some games together, was a ball. But what the hell is
an Ass Cookie...?
4) There is no Number 4. Well, maybe there is, but you'll need a good
5) I write comics now. Irregularly, as always. Check it.
So until next update (June or early July from the looks of things) I

||At last! It's fixed!
go by, seems like it's right to do a update here, especially since the
site is up and now COMPLETELY UNDER OUR CONTROL. This means the
1) sherl0k (You know him, he's the sexy one) is in direct control of
the server. This means if it goes down or otherwise messes up, I can
complain to him.
2) Most importantly: My PSF Mirrors should fully work again. Speeds are
going to be insane for you people, and with a full Terabyte of
Bandwidth, unless you people get REAL greedy, the mirrors should never
run out of bandwidth.
Oddly enough, Temperatures will be nearly 60 tomorrow. I look down on
my last post, a little over two months ago, and smile. Spring is
arrived, and we're finally warming up...
Anyway, time to go update my mirrors. I haven't been able to in months,
and it's finally time to get them bad boys back up to date.
See you on the other side.
- Dark Pulse
||Buckle up Boys and Girls, cause here
2004 is dead and buried, in the history books, as they say, and we're
in the year 2005 now. Are you keeping your New Year's resolutions? Of
the 3 I made, one's already broken, blah. At least the other two I made
are ones reasonably able to keep: Keep kicking ass in UT2004, and work
my ass of on my second mod, Unreal Tournament Revolution.
Hopefully this will turn out to be a kickass mod.
As I write this (4:45 PM) ths sun is beginning to set here. It's a
cloudy, rainy day, but a massive heatwave smashed in. This morning it
was right around freezing, now it's over 50 Farenheit, and might peak
near 60 tomorrow. What do I get for this weather? 20s on Friday. Thanks
a whole fucking lot Nature. We know you like to make winters up here
interesting. Not as bad as that time you gave us Mid-70s in December
and then dumped 9 feet of snow on us a week later, but I have a feeling
you'll pull one of them, except maybe 6 1/2 feet. You're always
generous this time of year.
Other then that, not much else going on that's worth your mention. I
might as well tie this one up now.
Until I click "Fire" to respawn, I remain the, well, remains of...
- Dark Pulse
||Thanksgiving: Get Stuffed!
month, another update...
First off, our little UT2004 mod has been announcer; perhaps you've
heard of a little thing called CTF4? :) It was hell the last few days
or so, tying that up, but it's done and well recieved - over 4500
downloads, and it's not even been a week now! I'm deeply humbled and
impressed. If you'd like to get your own copy, visit the link in the
sidebar on the right - Current version is 1002. And if you're really
lucky, you might even play me. You'll know when it's me - the game will
say I've joined. Heh, Dev privledges rock. :p
Anyway, besides most of the levels, I also did a hell of a lot of
testing and pretty much every Green and Gold textures you see. (NOT the
skins - that's someone else.) I've done a lot for that mod, and I hope
the Community does it justice with some mind-blowing work.
Other then that, nothing much of interest at all. Still Single, Still
outta work, my dick's still the exact same size. :/ I suppose I should
be thankful it hasn't shrank though - this IS Thanksgiving.
Finally, we're supposed to get our first good, measureable snowfall
tonight/Tomorrow AM. Another Buffalo Winter of Single-Digit
Temperatures and Subzero Wind Chills, ahoy!
I hope all you people in the south fucking Rot as a result. :)
Until the Aliens scrub my brain again, I remain...

||Updates Schmupdates! Feh!
it's actually been awhile since I did an update, even for my
"Non-Existant" update schedule. So I figure "What the hell, give the
little bastards something." So here I am.
Well, life's been Unreal-centered again the last couple of weeks. I've
been posting regularly at the BeyondUnreal
Forums and participating in their weekly Fragfest known as FragBU.
If you're really itching to take on some of the best players on the
'net and generally have a good time in one of the finest 2k4 pubs
around, I HIGHLY recommend you sign up on the BeyondUnreal forums and
join us. Add a "You killed [LAC]Dark_Pulse" screenshot to your
collection today! :p
Second, I've been working on a currently unannounced UT2004 mod. While
I can't say much about the mod, I CAN say that my work is creating maps
for this mod. It's an awesome mod, one I think a lot of people will
like, and I can't wait to see what the community does with it once the
mod is released! Stay Tuned.
Finally, back to BeyondUnreal for a second: I'm helping plan, record
material, and otherwise do other stuff for a second FragBU
video. I HIGHLY recommend you check out the first one for some
awesome kills from the UT2003 days; Mid-air Headshots, well timed Shock
Combos, and just weird stuff are abound. You'll be likely seeing me in
this second volume, and if you get a excellent kill on FragBU, who
knows, you might too. ;)
Anyway, outta here!

it took long enough for an update, eh?
First and Foremost: UT2k4's been out for almost a month now, and I've
been playing it religiously on my brand-new Athlon XP 3000+ Computer
(This is my first post from said computer, to boot.) My old one is
currently in Transit to Dundalk, MD where a pal of mine bought it off
me for a cool $300. Anyway, if you haven't gotten UT2k4 yet, go get it,
and if you have, maybe you'll play me someday.
Second: My PSF Mirror has been a HUGE success. If you haven't been
there yet, what're you waiting for? Little Green men from Grrrrrrrrash
Tak'nyrrrrrrrrr to take over? Visit the freakin'
Third, I decided to get rid of the Modplug stuff. The Links are still
there, in case you want to download it still, but effectively I'm too
bored to update it every time I update the site, and as you can see
from my update schedule, that's not terribly often or even remotely
As I type this, I got back from a nice Vacation in Erie, PA a good 12
hours ago. I've had maybe 7 hours of sleep in the last two and a half

||Unreal Tournament 2004 Madness!
my computer is no longer a piece of ass for New games, thanks to my
Shiny new GeForce 4 MX 440. Yes, it still sucks, but before you Radeon
whores come out and slap the yellow off my teeth, I'd like to tell you
1) You should shut the hell up.
2) My Mobo is a KT266A, not exactly something tha can handle 8X AGP.
3) Unless you're feeling kind enough to mail me a nice computer (Or
give me $400 more for a new one) you're in no position to tell me I
should have gotten a Radeon! Now please refer back to Number 1.
So I've spent the last few nights giving it a workout. Unreal
Tournament 2003 runs very good on most maps with all settings on High,
All Eyecandy enabled, and 640x480x32. Postal 2 is a lot heavier on this
kind of stuff, but I still acheive Med-High detail with mostly Playable
And, of course, UT2k4. Epic's definitely set out to redeem themselves
with this one...
I took 100+ Screenshots; you can nab them all here.
Big thanks to my BL mate,
Feuergeist, and to my DS Lackeys, Leonard Noir and Ataru-kun for
playing with me and getting as much of a kick off Onslaught as I did.
Anyway, if you haven't gotten the demo yet (Yes, both of you) do
yourself a favor and get it. The new Onslaught mode is simply awesome,
Assult's revamps are refreshingly welcome, The Character Models look
even better, and the AI is amazing. When the bots say "I've got your
back" they really DO got your
back. And that long-time standing bug of them being able to see
Invisible players is finally quashed- they ran right past me several
times when invisible.
The only thing they could improve more on? Dodging, Dodge Jumping,
Double Jumping, and Wall Hopping. There's still none of that (As far as
I seen anyway) but this is only a Demo, and they've still got a month
to tweek it out.
Anyway, I've got it Pre-Ordered, so I should have it right around the
23-27th of March (It's released on the 16th.) Expect full coverage of
this - what's new, who's who, and more - when I get the game.
Assuming I ever stop playing, that is.
||Whee, New stuff!
I finally redid the Main Page slightly - ever so slightly, mind you...
1) You'll now notice a Download Link if you can't hear the fine, fine
music above. This is The ModPlug Plugin, it's a small EXE and will
allow you to hear the music/stop it at your own will! If you've ever
had the Standalone ModPlug Player, you'll be quite familiar with the
interface, if not, it's simple and easy enough to get used to quickly.
2) There's now a Hit Counter on the bottom of the page. Tacky? Maybe,
but hey... It's my page, anyway, and not yours. So Shaddap.
About it for this update... In case I don't update around then, may you
and yours have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanzaa,
Feliz Navidad, or Joyeaux Nöel!

couple new maps for UT, UT2003, and believe it or not, that old

hear a spiffy little Remix of DOOM 2 Map 10, "The Demon's Dead." Good,
