Team Factor Followup

March 23rd, 2002 by keerf

Bernd Ritter from Holarse sent in word with an email about Team Factor. This comes from 7fx directly.

TF for linux is not available at this time. First we have to finish itsWindows version, ship it and then, if it’s gonna be financially viable, wecan do a linux version. It’s not that hard to do because we have a dedicatedserver running on linux which basically is the whole engine without graphicsand keyboard/mouse input. And as we have support for OpenGL in TF, addingthese features could take us about a week.

* Animated Toolbar
* Point-scoring system
* All New Main Menu
* Integrated Help System
