E3 Demo Finally Found!

E3 Demo Finally Found!

We all thought it was lost. We all have asked if a copy had survived anywhere out there. Would we ever see it?
Great news appeared in our forum a few weeks ago when our member Deadeyeguy_45 discovered a Tweet from no other than Seamus Blackley himself sharing his discovery of the famous E3 Demo build shown at E3 1998.

TrespasserE3Build

Not only that, he also found 2 other builds. A later look at those it was noted that it was an early PCGamer build (for a preview), and another copy of the E3 Demo build, so in all, 2 builds.

These versions contain the famous green T-Rex and Brown raptor. The PCGamer build also contain the long lost, and mythical level PH (Plantation House), originally located between JR and IJ. Both builds can be run and played even on modern systems (confirmed to work on Windows 10 64-bit).

After some talk with him, he was happy to share these with the public, so grab your own copy of these early builds now! You can get them HERE at our forum.

New Trespasser Fan-Art & Magazine Scans

New Trespasser Fan-Art

Do anyone here remember Uroš Begović? No? Some members might remember him from a few years back, when he made a fantastic fan-art cover for a Trespasser comic book (link). Sadly he never made a comic out of it, however, now he is back with some new fantastic fan-art.

Magazine Scans

As some of you might have notices, I (Tatu) have become and admin again. This means I will work on the site and the forum, and you might see some changes from time to time. I have already done some minor fixes to the main site. One thing that I have added is Hilwo’s Trespasser Combined Beta/Retail Stream.tpa Voiceover List, replacing his old ones. Head over to our Article section.

While you are there, you will see a link to a new Gallery. This is where we will place every Trespasser article from magazines that we or you find. Right now we have many added, most in non-English language. There is also an article about a programming tutorial by no other than Trespasser’s Rob Wyatt, written during the time he worked on Trespasser. Go check it out!

I have also added most of the missing videos back to the video site (now you can download them again!). They have been missing since GameSpy closed their service many years ago.

One last thing, we have turned on an extra layer of security when you register a new account (users with an existing will not notice this) on our forum in order to get control of all spambots we get. So far it seems to work without any problems, but if you have problem creating a new account, please contact us.

Jurassic Time: Gold

Everyone, including me, thought 2013′s edition of Jurassic Time (Annotated) was the final one. But it looks like since we got a 4th Jurassic Park film this year we may as well have a 4th edition of everyone’s favorite John Hammond memoir: Jurassic Time! The “Gold” edition is indeed the final one, for sure (unless we unearth pristine and uncut recordings of Attenborough’s dialogue). It removes all of the Thomas Hammond tracks from the previous release to give fans of the game a more authentic experience. You can still download the “Annotated” edition with those tracks in the archives and read up as to why they are gone from this edition. In their place are two brand-new intro and outro tracks meant to sell the idea that this all came from some old lost tapes laying around Hammond’s mansion. Otherwise all of the John Hammond tracks are identical to those from before; still in fantastic music sound quality and filled to the brim with appropriate sound effects.

I can understand those not interested in this edition since it actually offers less than before. But trust me when I say that this, to me, is the definitive way to really listen to it. Anyone who wants to experience more of the story really needs to download the “Excavated” book edition that features the entire script with pictures in a scrapbook form.

This has entire process of making all of these editions has been a labor of love for me, and I hope my final sendoff is one that will be enjoyed. Thank you all for your interest. The pleasure has all been mine. Click on the logo below to be taken to the site.

Server problems resolved

During the past few months we received a lot of complaints of people having trouble with our forum registration. As it turned out, the email server we had been using was shut down by the host without any notification. Upon notice, we fixed it immediately, but we sincerely apologize for the trouble it may have caused. The forum has always been very welcoming to newcomers, so if you happened to be a viction, please retry today!

 

Merry Christmas

Ho,ho,ho… I know that this may seem as a pretty lame intro to an awesome post, but what can I say: i am a sucker for the festive spirit. It has been yet another incredible year here at TresCom. We have seen new fan projects such as the incredible Trespassing, a CryEngine Total Conversion, an entire rebuild of the entire Trespasser source known as Trespasser CE (I know what you are thinking and yes – it does add new shiny effects to the old Trespasser Engine!), several incredible interviews with Austin Grossman and Scallenger and then there was JP:Aftermath, an incredible port to the Unity-Engine.

 

There were other Jurassic Park news, of course:  Jurassic World is happening and wowed us with an oddly inaccurate version of Andy from Parks and Recreation riding with a gang of velociraptors. I know, we were thinking the same thing, but hey – there will be dinosaurs, so we are still psyched! On a sad note, however, John Hammond (Sir Richard Attenborough) passed away in August this year. He was an incredible actor and director – and he will be truely missed by all of us.

To leave you on a happy note, it just so happens that JP:Aftermath released a christmas video to hit you over the head with the right christmas mood:

Merry christmas, everyone!

 

Jurassic World – Trailer released

 

 

What can I say… I am excited!

Derrick Davis Gets Interviewed On “Canned Air Podcast”

CannedAir-small

As if the recent Austin Grossman interview wasn’t enough, Canned Air Podcast spoke out to the creator of Jurassic Time, Derrick Davis (also known as Scallenger). I stuck around for the entire awesome episode (and also contributed a fairly scary Jurassic Park intro audio), but its around the 34 minute mark that Jurassic Time is discussed. I also briefly mention my upcoming novel Retcon Ride, at around the 1 hour and 4 minute mark.
