Aleph One is a 3D first-person shooter game based on the game Marathon 2 by Bungie Software. It is set in a Sci-Fi universe dominated by deviant computer AIs and features a well thought-out plot. Aleph One was originally a MacOS game, but a cross-platform version ("Aleph One/SDL") based on the Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) library is currently under development which runs under Unix, BeOS, and Windows.
Alpha Shooter is a 3D first-person shooter game with a sci-fi setting. It features multi-platform support (Linux, Mac OS X, CygWin, and Windows) and, since version 0.1.0, its own reusable game engine (Neutron). The game and its engine will evolve over time to incorporate simulated physics and AI, networking, audio, scripting, and more.
BFM (Brutal Filemanager) is a mixture between a filemanager and a 3D shoot-'em-up game. In fact, you can't really manage the files yet, just shoot them up. Be carefull when using BFM! Some weapons, such as the shotgun, have spread. So files you didn't really aim at might get ... wasted. Start BFM with the '-s' for safemode and your files shall stay unhurt. It is written in Java and uses the Java3D API.
CSBuddy is a tool designed to help Counter-Strike server owners, particularly those running AdminMod. It maintains a queryable database of all players that have been seen on the server, and it filters the raw logs of a Counter-Strike server and distills them into a single CSBuddy log which shows only high-level activity such as excessive friendly fire incidents, admin activity, and players complaining about misbehavior or saying suspicious things. This tool is built upon an included Counter-Strike log file parser which is provided in a simple derivable class.
These games are recreations of simple ASCII graphics games originally written in BASIC. They are ideal for use as Perl programming tutorials. Some of the first few games are PerlBlaster (defend your planet from invading aliens), PerlRacer (steer your car through the twisting passages), and PerlArena (eliminate the mutant hordes).
DeuTex is a wad composer for Doom, Heretic, Hexen and Strife. It can be used to extract the lumps of a wad and save them as individual files. Conversely, it can also build a wad from separate files. When extracting a lump to a file, it does not just copy the raw data, it converts it to an appropriate format (such as PPM for graphics, .au for samples, etc.). When it reads files for inclusion in pwads, it does the necessary reciprocal conversions. In addition, DeuTex has functions such as merging wads, etc.
