���Saturday, August 25, 2001 - 12:45 PM EDT ActMarine - Wow...
I know I know, I haven't updated in over 2 months, but that doesn't mean we haven't been working! We have MOST of the files renamed, and archived into an easy system(personwhomadeit_whatitis). We are now in the process of finding where they are at on the new ftp. If you read down a few posts, you will see that they changed from file names, to file numbers. That's where we're at now. Next step is to change all the html to fit those new links. I'm seeing about another month or maybe even 2 until we're totally complete. Also, I've added 2 new members to the guild team, Lehmann & Comp625. Also again, COME TO OUR IRC CHANNEL@!# #guild on

That's all folks,


���Sunday, June 17, 2001 - 12:32 PM EDT ActMarine - Weclome Tziko...
I would like everyone to welcome our newest member of the Guild team, Tziko. He's going to be helping me change over all the files to the new archiving system, and afterwards he'll head up some section.

That's it for now


���Saturday, June 16, 2001 - 12:33 PM EDT ActMarine - Update
Progress is kind of slow, but it's getting there. The Guild Masters Page is done for now. I'm in the process of revamping the Developer's section now. Just so you know why this takes me so long, read what smurpshter (who runs AQMD) sent to me for what I have to do for EVERY file:

"oh.. it's kinda a pain. when you upload a file on any of the servers, it automatically gets mirrored on the others (just like before). to link to the file, you have to go to click on telefragged, then whatever your directory is. find the file, right-click on it and "copy shortcut". then paste that url where ever yer putting the link. they switched from using file names to "fileID" numbers.."

It's gonna take a while :)

Also, I set up an IRC channel for the guild. It's #guild on Stop by and just idle in there.

More to come


���Tuesday, June 12, 2001 - 3:40 PM EDT ActMarine - Own
Guild is under construction!

Black Monk and I are starting to get to work on the Guild again. It's going to be a long and slow process, but hopefully I'll have this done within the end of the month. We need your help. While we are fixing up the the Guild, YOU need to start making stuff to send in. Instead of the old email method, I'm going to be setting up an FTP for you to upload your files to. All that is down the road though.

Should be it for now, more updates to come.


���Tuesday, June 12, 2001 - 9:32 AM EDT Hammer - We're on the way back
After struggling with some settings this morning, and getting the help of the fine webmasters at Telefragged, we're back in business. ActMarine and Black Monk will be updating the guild to make it work again, so folks can get all their models, skins, and whatnot. Rejoice.

���Tuesday, July 11, 2000 - 5:37 PM EDT ActMarine - Sad day...
As of today, the Actor's Guild is officially closed. We will not be taking any more submissions. After talking with Hammer, it was deemed appropriate to close down the Guild. Action Quake isn't what it used to be, and because of that, the Guild suffered. It was a lot of fun while it lasted, and I'm glad I had the oppertunity to be a part of this. The page will still stay, as with everything that is here, but nothing new will be added. If you find any links that do not work, please let me know by email. Thank you everyone.

���Wednesday, June 07, 2000 - 5:11 PM EDT Gigolo - Backwards Jump Demos!?!?!
Just when I thought I had seen it all, SpedDmn[11] tells me about his backwards jump demos on urban. They are not changed in any way, no increased sv_gravity or anything, its all legit. Download here. Have fun.

���Monday, May 22, 2000 - 4:24 PM EDT ActMarine - Sigh...
I have decided to put the work on the new page on hold. Kaneb and I are having problems getting the page to work with both browsers(IE and Netscape) and various other problems. From now on, I'll be accepting submissions again. All of you who sent them before and I told you to hold on to your submission, send it to me again. Hopefully if I get enough material, I'll be able to update atleast once a week. Before, I couldn't update often because I didn't have anything to update with. I'll put up a new pic of the week later tonite, and after I get some files, I'll update the optionals section. That's all, later.

���Sunday, April 23, 2000 - 10:00 PM EDT ActMarine - HAPPY EASTER!!!
I will not be accepting any submissions for the guild until the new page is up. So please just hang on to everything until we are done with the new page. Hope this clears up some of the confusion. The new page is expected to be up at the middle of next month. The reason for taking so long is because I have finals coming up and I can't be devoting all my time to the work on the page. I will put as much in here and there as I can, but I feel school work is more important. =EAT=Kaneb and I have the base of the page set up, but now all the details need worked out, and all of the html needs done. That's it for now, I will post more on the developement of the page later next week.

���Wednesday, April 12, 2000 - 3:20 PM EDT ActMarine - The Guild now has an irc channel
I got the guild an irc channel at #guild on

It's only temporary until I can find a shell, then I will put one up on Efnet. That's all, just come in and idle or whatever


���Monday, April 10, 2000 - 9:02 PM EDT ActMarine - Guild will be down for a while
Well it's not going to technically be "down" but the Guild is going to go under some rather large changes. I have decided, and with Hammer's permission, to redo the Actor's Guild, and also make it compatible for Action Half Life. I'm not sure if it's going to be two different pages, or all one, those details will be sorted out later. The main point is, there probably aren't going to be any updates until the new site is finished. I have a handful of submissions on me right now, and I will upload those either tonight or tomorrow, but that will be it for a while. From looking at the page, and the ftp for the Guild, it is nothing but a mess. If anyone would like to contribute to the renovation or just to submit ideas for the new site either email me or icq me(30883234). That's it, and happy fragging till next time.

���Monday, March 20, 2000 - 10:41 PM EST Gigolo - 4 More Demos
Got 4 more demos here from Taiga=SF=. They are jump demos on the following levels: Teamjungle, Winter, Murder, Tokyo. He wanted me to give credit to =EAT=Hemo for showing him how to strafe trees. To download the demos, click the level that corresponds to the map on which the demo was taken. TeamJungle, Winter, Murder, Tokyo. Note, they are not all original jumps, but most are.

���Tuesday, March 14, 2000 - 10:55 PM EST Gigolo - New Urban Jump Demo
Hey everyone, Gigolo here. I got a demo that I took a while back, that I finally got recammed. It's me on Urban doing a jump that I haven't ever seen a demo of or anyone else besides me do. I'm sure someone has done it tho. All it is is a little time saving double jump from the pipes to the ladder on Urban, so download it, check it out, and try it yourself. Any questions on it, email me.

���Tuesday, February 22, 2000 - 12:53 AM EST ActMarine - Need some help...
Ok...I'm in need of an animator and/or someone to mesh skins for the Guild. I can get any weapon replacement model that anyone can ask for...but inorder to post em here, I need someone to do the animations and mesh the skins. I have a few people to DO the skins (red13 pops up in my mind right now). If you can help out in anyway with my problem...icq me at 30883234 or email me. Thanks.

���Monday, February 21, 2000 - 1:27 PM EST Hammer - More useless news's got an Unreal skinning tutorial that I think you might want to check out, especially with some of the rumors that action might see its way over there.Also, ActMarine is workin hard to get the Optionals caught up. I wish him the best, I know that job sucks.

���Wednesday, February 02, 2000 - 12:23 AM EST Hammer - Hey everyone, check this out:
Its a new model with VArms. I haven't tried it (cause i'm lazy) but if you like it and all, I'll see about getting it on here.
War Vet

���Friday, January 28, 2000 - 12:28 AM EST ActMarine - Hello Everyone...
ActMarine here, just like to say hi and that I'm gonna be headin up the optionals section...that's about it for now.

���Friday, January 14, 2000 - 2:04 AM EST NiTrO - Attention Please!
Hello everybody!

I'm going to work on the Actors Guild for your viewing and download pleasure. =)
Yes, and note the changes, now submit your files to me, not Gigolo.

Send me the files

Very soon I'm going to add several files, both demos, configs and more, so keep coming and check out the latest additions.

���Wednesday, January 05, 2000 - 9:27 AM EST Hammer - How to get fog in AQ, by kramed
kramed has discovered how to get fog to work in AQ2. It's a client side thing, so you can try it if you want!! You need Opengl 1.1 drivers for your card

This morning by fluke (I was switching the shotgun model) I found out that you can get the fog from CGF and LTK working in regular multiplayer games.


Default opengl users can skip next 2 paragraphs.

3dfx users can get this working too. Just download the mini gl used in GlQuake (opengl.dll), put it in your quake2 directory and change from 3dfx gl to default gl. On my P200 I got an extra 1.5 fps. I use default opengl all the time now. There are no visible diferences either. Get the latest GLQuake opengl.dll:

After you put you stick that in your quake2 folder go into regular quake2 and change the video setting. Then when you go into action it will have the right settings. (BTW, when you play CGF you gotta rename the opengl.dll to something different or CGF will crash).

Now goto and download the latest client/server pack. You only need the folder /action/cgf/fog if you dont want the whole thing. Then goto and download the latest LTK dll. Stick it in you quake2 folder (backing up 1.52 and CGF).

Edit /action/cgf/fog to your liking (my default one is: default 0.09 1 0.1 0.1 0.1 200 2200), set fog 1 in your config, start up AQ2 with the ltk dll, start a game, the bots will join, disconnect and join an internet game. You will have fog. yay. Once you start a map with the bots and the fog every game after will have the fog. Pretty nifty.

I agree, that's pretty nifty.

���Sunday, December 05, 1999 - 3:59 AM EST Gigolo - 24K Pak, new song, and a rant!!
Here it is, the Official (cause I said so) Mr. T Approved 24k gold p1mp pak. In other news.... Red13 emailed me about taking over, so i gave gim my ICQ UIN but he hasn't replied. I also got a new aq2 song, and it's upped to the others section. If you people are wondering what has been keeping me from my webbing duties, check out my schools new website, authored by yours truly. Now for a little rant. I play a lot of CS and some AQ2 with my clan, and whenever I join a server people talk about how my name is Gigolo, and that new Rob Schneider movie Duece Bogalow Male Gigolo. First of all, the title is redudant. Look up gigolo in the dictionary and male is in the definition. I also hope that a lot of people don't start going by that name. I hate it when some new movie or tv show comes out and everyone uses a name from it. There were numerous southpark clans, and i see tons of people with the names of morpheus, majorpayne, blade, spawn and just about any other movie hero/heroine. Call it a pet peeve of mine, I just think that originality is a defining characteristic and more people should look into it, that's all. Well, I know a lot of you dont appreciate me not updating in over a month, and then ranting on and on forever, but oh well.

���Friday, November 05, 1999 - 12:33 AM EST Gigolo - The Neglectful Father Speaks
No way to explain why I haven't updated. Been really busy, and there are just way too many files. This is what I have planned to do. I am going to release all of the files that I have in a zip. Here is a link. If someone out there wants to apply for a position here at the guild, take the zip and update the crosshair, weapon skins, etc pages with these new additions. If you do this, send it to me and we can talk about you taking some work off of my hands. The HTML files are in the zip. Vivitronak is back at the Guild, and he is updated the models section a few weeks ago, so if you haven't checked that out swing on by. I will continue to just update by zip file, unless I get inspired again or if someone helps me out. I got here by volunteering, so it isn't impossible. Oh, as I was sitting down to write this I got an email, here it is :

I seriously don't understand this. At first you were oh so very enthusiastic about updating and keeping the guild alive. Now that you got you ADSL and can frag at sub 100 pings you forget about the rest of us? Where are new optionals? Im sure you have a stash piled up somewhere but won't put em up for god knows why. Its been over a friggin month. I check back everyday in hope that i can add something exciting to aq2 and yet promote its life further. Unfortunately people like you are seeming to busy and pampered to care anymore. Either deliver the goods or resign.

To anyone that feels this way also, all I can say is that I do this for FREE. I design webpages and work on computers as a side job, and I get money to do it, damn good money. I do this website for FREE. I have not recieved one dime from the Guild. Everything I have done was for you, for the community that I watched grow since I was a beta tester with the A-team. If you want things to change, you gotta change em. If you want the Guild to kick ass again, do something about it. Drop me a line and let's see what WE can do to fix it. That's all.
The guy who sent that email is Francis Holmes: [email protected] .

���Monday, October 25, 1999 - 10:30 AM EDT Gigolo - I'm Workin On It
The Telefragged FTP was down for a large part of yesterday, so if anyone was having probs accessing files, this is why. I couldnt update the files that I wanted to, so an optionals update is still in the works. I did upload 3 new songs though, so get over to the others section of the optionals page. There are some other things that I am working on, like a 1on1 aq2 map. Once I finish it expect to see it somewhere, even if AQMD won't house it. That's all for today.Over 30 optionals to upload, damnable procrastination. Bloodhound Gang rocks your lame ass!!!

���Monday, October 18, 1999 - 6:19 PM EDT Gigolo - Yeah Yeah Yeah.........
Hey all you Optionals Leeches, sorry for neglecting me duties as of late. I got some news for ya though. I am gonna be taking the reigns from Hammer from now on. He is still gonna help around here, just not on the same level as he used to. I am trying to convert the Pic of the Day to the Pic of the Week, and it isn't working too well. Email me if you are having any problems with it. Also, please send all files that goto me to [email protected], not the submit2guild one. Also, with my ADSL you can send me pretty much any size file and it won't faze the mighty bandwidth. Keep sending in the optionals, the pic's and all the rest, we are still alive, just in hibernation. I should be updating the pic and the optionals section sometime soon. I got like 30 optionals to upload, including two new songs!! Look for it soon.With my new sexy ping I am more or less unstoppable in AQ2. If anyone wants to challenge me in that, then challenge clan11,, and see if you can take us on.

���Friday, October 08, 1999 - 8:40 PM EDT Gigolo - I GOT MY ADSL!!!!
I finally got my ADSL installed, and it flies. I had a 90 ping at deepcanyon with 10 people there. Not too shabby in my book. This will make it faster for me to upload stuff to the guild, so expect an update soon, if I am not playing some CS or AQ2. I'm gonna go download some 50 meg demos, to check back soon for an update.Fixed Quake2, Fixed Half-Life, and my internet screams. All in all a good day. Now I can download pr0n really fast!!

���Monday, October 04, 1999 - 11:02 PM EDT Gigolo - Basic Tedious Work
I am redoing the Pic of the Day to become the Pic of the Week. It makes more sense that way, cause when have we ever updated the pic daily, or weekly for that matter. Well I can't figure out how to edit the navbar, cause of the news script we have setup, so until then the grafik on the left wont work, and the pic of the week page is a little out of whack, but it will be fixed soon. Atleast there is a new pic to look at :) That's all for now.ADSL in 4 days, woohoo!! My q2 is still broke, damn reg_gl.dll

���Monday, September 27, 1999 - 3:03 AM EDT Gigolo - It's Done
After Hamer threatened my life with the BFG9000 I was properly motivated to do an update of the Optionals section. I also have 2 demo's to post, so look for those soon. While I do not selected a pic to upload for the POTW, I do have a really cool email I got from Redder, so here it is:

And will you hurry up and update the optional web page. Geesh. Don't you know that updating is more important then porn, sex, your girlfriend, school, homework, Action Q2, Action Half-life, Actionreal, Action Command & Conquer, Actionpin, Action Arena, Action Raider: The Last Actionlation, Actioncent 3, Action Championship 2000, Action Chaos, Action Force 2, Actionbow Six, Action Reign 2, Prince of Action 3D, Actioncraft, Offical Action Formula 1 Deathmatch, Ultimate Action, Actionwarrior 3: Meltdown, and lastly Action and Might VII: For Blood and Honor.

Sorry for not updating sooner, I will try to do it more often, cause that BFG9K scares the bajesus out of me. We also broke the 400K mark, so that's something to be proud of, kind of, maybe.....I reinstalled q2 finally, now I have to update it. BLAH. I am also getting my ADSL in 2 weeks, so NO MORE HPB FOR ME!!

���Saturday, September 25, 1999 - 12:27 AM EDT Hammer - WHERE ARE MY PANTS?
I am hoping for that monumental optionals update just like you all are. Sorry it hasn't happened yet. I'll do what I can to get it moving along.

���Saturday, September 04, 1999 - 2:10 AM EDT Gigolo - Unintelligible Gibber Gabber
Yes, they do let me out of my optionals cage from time to time. I did a rather large update to the optionals site, and I also uploaded a demo and I got the Homosaurus demo added properly to the page. There is an amazing demo of Urban. If you thought you knew all the jumps on that map, think again. [US]Sabotage is amazing. I also upped a new ICQ skin, and some windows program icons, so go look and sit in awe of the optionals goodness. There are also some new skins over at the skins section. Oh, and Spawn gets back from his trip tomorrow. All for now.Charles Manson: Psychotic Mass Murderer, or Misunderstood Pimp? You decide. (you would of had to have been in #actionquake2 with bartender the other night.)

���Sunday, August 29, 1999 - 11:11 AM EDT Hammer - GREAT GOOGLY-MOOGLY
There are a TON on optionals going up soon, as soon as Gigolo gets em over to the ftp server (his machine crashed). I mean a ton. 2000 lbs (none of that metric crap ;) ) Anyway, there's everything from windows icons to gunskins to crosshairs to icq backgrounds. There's even about to be another new weapon model. w00t w00t!!!! So, like I was sayin, go check it out!!

���Friday, August 27, 1999 - 4:36 PM EDT Hammer - Because the guys in #actionquake2 said so
So I'm doing an update. This is for Astroboy, DinnerNSV (psycho, i believe it was),and BlackAngel. There, are you happy?
There are no new optionals, models, skins, demos, or stuff on the developer's section (but go check out McDizzo's melee guide again, cause its cool.)
And I still haven't updated the pic of the day.
I've got a cooler full of beer in the trunk of my car, here, now, at work. Today is my last day. w00t

���Monday, August 23, 1999 - 10:58 AM EDT Hammer - WOW, GIGOLO IS THE MAN
Well, folks, Gigolo and Spawn have gotten us a bunch of optionals this past week, while I was on vacation. There's ICQ skins, Winamp skins, gunskins, new crosshairs, and lots more. Go check it out. I pity the foo who don't use the new gold gunskins pack!!!! It's Mr.T-riffic!!!
I have a bunch of pictures for the pic of the day. I will start cycling through them on the left soon. Have no fear, your pic will appear!!!!! And keep sending them. But no scoreboards showing how awesome you are, those are not what we're lookin for. Something strange or funny would be preferrable. I think I'll do a archive for them somehow.
Oh, and since AHL is out, GO TO WAVELENGTH to find out how to make optionals for it. (Thanks for the link madman)
Whoohoo!!!! I start my new job at Bank of America (a day job for once) in 1 week. I finally get to have a life. Or at least I can play quake when normal folks are on.

���Wednesday, August 11, 1999 - 7:43 PM EDT Hammer - I THINK I GOT IT WORKIN'
Let's hope so

���Sunday, August 08, 1999 - 2:13 PM EDT Hammer - AHL TESTING _ HELP OUT
There's an AHL test server up at Go there and help test the software, so that improvements can be implemented, and bugs can be fixed. Do your part and help the mod out. Thanks.
Gigolo will be updating the others page with a bunch of stuff soon, so keep your eyes open.
If anyone out there can host the Action Quake messageboard drop fex a line.

���Wednesday, August 04, 1999 - 7:59 PM EDT Hammer - AHL IS OUT
   Go get it. Its fun. Remember that it is a beta 1, and there are bugs. If you find a bug, document it thoroughly, and try to recreate it. Then you can present the A-Team with a coherent bug report that can be acted on in a rapid, efficient manner.
   In other news, There's a buttload of new stuff over in optionals land, AND...... I FINALLY GOT MY CLOWN SKIN FOR THE ODDJOB MODEL!!!!!!! Thanks Scuba Hood. /me rejoices. Now we need a leprochaun one. Like the guy from lucky charms, now hook me up!!! There are also some other skins over there, so go checkit.
   This is a new news script, which you shouldn't notice anything different about. The quotes are also generated by a script, so you get a different one every visit.Dammit, I got a final Saturday at 11am, so I can't go to deathmark's place. CRAPPITY!!!!!
