ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
@10 Uhm, Linux IS a functioning OS, and they’re talking about the actual map not working in Q3A, not the video above…
The art was ripped from various Simpsons media, but the 3D Homer has been available to lan partiers since Quake 2 at least.
The video rocks, once the walkthru is over (and the lame noob rocket launcher action is replaced by the more refined shotgun circle-strafe style). But from the walkthru, it looks like a decent capture-the-flag map to me. I wonder if they have a Quake 4 version?
It’s cute. Sadly, these themed maps usually aren’t very fun after the initial discovery… Nevertheless, does anybody know where to download it? The youtube description links to Yet Another Myspace Band Page.
Cory, if possible, I love you even more now. You don’t happen to have an identical gay clone stashed away anywhere do you? No? I call first dibs when you do get one!
Um, never mind me. The band page actually does have a link. It doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the band though, so it looks like obvious link farming.
I don’t know if I should hate them for fooling me thus, or be commend them for the idea. I hesitate to post the direct link to the map here...
@19 refined circle strafing?
man that style of gameplay is sooooo old
try COD4. will make you hate Halo and Quake and all that old stuff.
if he has clones there’s enough to go around you know
What’s that sonny? Can’t hear ya over the sounds of my ENEMIES DYING IN TF2…
Okay, break between fragfests, I loved the demo, it even runs great on my 3.2 P4! I tried to buy it thru Steam, no luck. Just haven’t retried yet.
Time to teach noobs to fear fire.
Here is a link to download the Simpsons map without going to myspace:
Well, I was supposed to be working tomorrow, but I figure there are at least 4 machines in my house will run this without falling over, so I might just set it up & make some calls.
There are no bad guys in Q3A.
Thanks for the link, Adub!
Wow, it’s ridiculous how detailed the maps can get for these nowadays. I remember back in the day when Q3A first came that if you even attempted to run a map like that you’d be going at a stead 3 or 4 frames per second.
seems to me the video has been taken down…
Gives new meaning to “who shot Mr. Burns?”
If only the scale weighed you at 239!
@5 I’ve been having trouble with YouTube lately, too. Refresh the page and try again; the video is OK.
Even after upping the com_hunkmegs setting, the map crashes out on Linux. Oh well.
Crashing for me too. Getting cull parm errors on many texture shaders. (sigh)
It’s weird how the house looks like a bit of a hovel on the show. But in here it looks like a nice pad. Must be a 2D/3D thing.

I cant get it to work. I allocated 100 mb of ram like it instructed…but i dont know how to get the mod to start. It doesnt tell you how in the read me. can anyone help?
I can’t help but wonder if this was ripped from an official Simpsons game somehow. I can almost believe they modeled the whole house in that much detail, but Moe’s too?
I wonder how the Back to the Future mod for GTA is doing.
