Also, id Software finished their presentation a little while ago and it seems to be generally agreed that it was one of the highlights of the 'Con so far this year. They started off by demonstrating the integrated Doom III editor with several id programmers and artists showing off their resprective parts of this powerful program. John Carmack followed with a long and highly technical talk, and a question and answer session with fans.From id
QuakeCon 2002 is now in full swing. If you couldn't make it out this year, you can still follow all of the tournament action live via ShoutCast at TSN. The broadcasters are doing an excellent job with the frag-by-frag and even have a little webcam hooked up. Finals are scheduled for around 2PM tomorrow Central Time.Also, the BYOC area at QuakeCon 2002 is now full. You're still welcome to come and look around, see DOOM III, etc., but we have tapped out the space for computers.
