Aaand our prize for today is…

Today we’re releasing version 2.5 of the StrangeSaver, that wacky scrensaver that allows you to run game demos as a Win9x screensaver! This new release is more of an update than a new version, but now features Heretic II support (in addition to supporting Quake I, II and III, Half-Life and SIN) and true multiple select, so you don’t have to enter your 200 demos by hand any more!

Sadly, you still have to quit out of the game as normal: we’re working on the problem, but see Hugh’s .plan on why it’s harder than it looks…

However, if you think that’s a huge problem, want to suggest an innovative new idea, or even just talk about non-Strange Company stuff altogether (shock!), you can, because the Strange Company fora are now back up! Thanks to Bradley and his heroic ‘phone support efforts for that.

Lastly, we’d like to make our second announcement of the week, and welcome a new trustee on board. Anthony Bailey, best known for running the Quake Done Quickly team, has joined Strange Company as our third trustee. He’ll be working with us on all sorts of things, including scripting consultation and general project support- welcome on board, Anthony.

EARLIER: The forum is dead at the moment: this is a problem with our web hosts, and should be sorted out shortly. Sorry about that.
