releases Quake2 lightgun mod 'gl.tter's Q2GUNFRENZY!' v1.0
gl.tter's Q2GUNFRENZY!, released today in version 1.0 under the >RIL_ banner, is the first ever lightgun enabled First-Person-Shooter game.
Written specifically for the ACT LABS GS PC lightgun system, it features a finely tuned and highly stylised Quake2 single-player 'Arcade Mode', as well as standard Quake2 gameplay with GS lightgun support and 'Stress Relief' mode.
The mod borrows numerous features from glitter's gl.tter's Q2Deathtrap!, a Quake2 mod that, whilst never publically announced, built a devoted underground following during the year it was developed and available to play on-line.
Although the GS system is required to play, anyone can download and view the included demos to see first-hand how lightguns can be used to revolutionise First-Person-Shooter games.
Full details (including screenshots, glitter's notes about the mod's origin etc.) are now on-line at the GUNFRENZY! web site.

a pack containing glitter's animated logo for linking to the - glitterstream - web site is available here (other graphics are available on request).
A second lightgun mod for Half-Life is currently in beta (this can also be found at the glitterstream site) - although this one currently features mostly unmodified Half-Life gameplay, it does offer multi-player lightgun capability, including the ability to run dedicated on-line lightgun servers (GunFrenzy is single-player only due to Quake2 architecture restrictions). However, please do not publicise this yet, as more work is expected on it fairly soon to bring it up to version 1.0.
