There is an unofficial Mac port at Red.planetarena.org

As for the official port, I've been promised "it'll be done this week" for four months now, and the guy never comes through.

Irritant_new @ Alien Arena 2008 version 7.10 released today!

There is an unsupported Mac port available on our webpage Red.planetarena.org and, believe it or not, the official Mac port is any day now, so I've been promised :)

Latest word on Mac Port - the dev is telling me that it should be ready by the end of the week. He's got a few minor issues he's working out(he's a bit of a perfectionist). I think it'll be well worth the wait from what he is telling me.

It wasn't called Qfusion because of what I wrote above. Reading comprehension 101 please. As far as which engine is better, I didn't realize this was some kind of contest. Maybe if people like you(among others) didn't try to make it such, and trollbait projects like you're infamously famous for, there would be greater cohesion between game communities. I suggest you get a new perspective on this and grow up a little.

It should be any day - the guy doing the port said that he was packaging it yesterday and would get it to me today...keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks :) Yeah we are working on the engine constantly, by 2009 I'd expect it to be quite more advanced, and probably a bit faster even.

Wow dude, you don't let up do ya? LOL. Let me fill you in on a little history(and for others who are interested). CRX was originally written by myself and Victor Luchits(who wrote Qfusion) in 2002. Since then both engines were developed independently, with completely different purposes. Qfusion was primarily created as an engine that could be used as a mod base, that could use Quake 3 content and game code. CRX was developed in a more specific manner, with code that linked more to various items in the CodeRED series of games, and then eventually Alien Arena, and was never intended to be used by other games. One quick glance at the code shows that they are completely different engines(the only code they share at all is the light bloom code), that do not even run the same type of game code. I hope that helps clear thing up for you :)

This is a great, great idea. Seems to be working very well.

It was based off of Q2 and Q3, so I have put id tech 2 as the engine and updated the profile.

Irritant_new @ Release officially delayed a few days.

Not so sad. This is a monumental release for this game which has received an enormous amount of work since the last version. Delaying the release a couple of days makes alot of sense given that Nexuiz and Warsow both released on the same day. We have alot of confidence in this version, and feel it could be the beginning of something very, very big in freeware gaming. I could post the details of what we have lined up, but I'd rather just let people find out as it happens. The people that love the game will be very pleased, and the people who love to hate the game(I'm pretty sure that you are one of those, correct?) are going to have to pick their jaws up from the floor.

Ok this site is a bit borked, twice I tried to post this in response to the guy who wanted to know if it was anything like UT2k4 and it put it at the top...

If you like UT2k4 you should like this game then. Style is definitely along those lines, and there is also alternate firing modes and dodging.

Well a bit of Q3 too, but mostly Q2.

Sure, but IMO, the difference between the quality of 07 and 08 is worth waiting till Friday for your first experience with the game.

Well the theme is retro sci-fi. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it's one of the things that make the game unique.

If you want different, try the Cattle Prod or Team Core Assault modes. How many FPS have a mode in which involve cows? Or try All Out Assault, the mode that has vehicles you can jump into.

Note: The gun isn't so big, just looks that way because it's recoiling during the shot :)

Nobody in our community or dev team owns a Mac, so we have no way of doing it. A person had volunteered a few months ago and then never followed through. Basically our stance is regarding Mac is that it is not going to happen unless *somebody* who owns a Mac steps up to the plate and ports it. Otherwise, there is nothing we can really do.

Irritant_new @ Say hello to my Leeetle friend :)

That shot was taken in a dark place on a map intentionally. The maps are all quite well lit.

Actually the balance is much better than alot of people starting out realize. Every weapon is useful, and has an alternate firing mode that makes it useful in other situations. In fact, aside from the base blaster, most of the weapons are pretty even in terms of usefulness.

Thanks for the comments and feedback, always greatly appreciated.

I definitely need to get a manual written.

I also should have re-written the controls menu to add the flashlight. Alot of people don't know about that feature, unfortunately.

In the meantime, I'll probably post a sticky thead in the COR forums about how to set up a server and configure the game, etc.

LOL! Martians are a bit shorter than the standard player, so that tends to be a problem...

Thought it was a funny pic though :)
