Another minor change to the site. The IRC Chat page has been changed to the Buy ROTT! page. On that page are links to several sites where potential fans can buy both the new and old Rise of the Triad Games. As for the Chat Room, it has been inactive for years now, so removing the link to it was an obvious choice. If there are any other sites that carry Rise of the Triad that you feel should be listed, please leave a comment.
Its been awhile since this site was updated. A few things have occurred since 2012, such as the release of a new Rise of the Triad game, a new rott 95 editor has been developed, an old one had been updated as well has WinRott. Currently I am working to bring the ROTTpository up to speed with events. In the meantime, the “Forums” section has been redone. The native forum for this site, the “San Nicholas Haven”, has been long gone due to low activity and spambot problems. A list of alternatives has been listed instead.
” August 2, 2012 – Dallas, TX – Today at QuakeCon, Apogee Software and Interceptor Entertainment have announced the rebirth of the cult-classic first-person shooter, Rise of the Triad – vowing to make it bigger, better and more ludicrous than ever before. Powered by the industry-leading Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games, Rise of the Triad includes a full single-player campaign which is complimented by a fully featured multiplayer experience.”
I have updated the TC yet again, the biggest change is now savegames work properly. I’ve also added an editing guide for making your own levels, you can get both the updated version and guide at elzee.co.nz
Here’s an update, with a bugfixes and all the proper pistols.
Unfortunately the save problem is still there 🙁
I will be adding some info on how to make your own maps for the TC later…
San Nicolas Haven
After the slow down of posts over at the bizhat rott forum, I decided to make use of the internal ROTT HQ forum that was set up in December, hence marking this a new era in the community. The forum has been christened “San Nicolas Haven” in honer of a former member of the old forum that seems to have disappeared. Considering how the former two forums for rott have died, we hope to make this a final bastion of community. If you happen to be a fan of Rott, please stop by and contribute.

Just to note, if you first post doesn’t show up, its because it has to be approved. Wait until your first post gets approved, then you can post without need of approval.
Yeah, been quite some time since an update has occurred, but one has finally come along. Sad to say it’s not a happy update. As you all know El Zee was working on a rather awesome Doom II mod, Return of the Triad, and has been considered a rather good successor to the original Rise of the Triad. Unfortunately, a post made over at the Zdoom forums from him shows that his hard drive crashed and he lost around a whole month’s worth of work, setting him back quite a bit.
Though it seems he still has interest in continuing it, it just might be awhile before it gets up and going again, which means you’ll have to wait for the full version for just a bit longer.
The Annual ROTT Awards (aka the Rancids)
2010 marks the first year of the Annual ROTT Awards, or the Rancids if you prefer that term. If you are familiar which Doomworlds Cacowards, then this is in a similar vain to that. The awards have been divided into three categories and are as follows:
- 1st Category: Mapper of the Year – The Author of the best map made this year. It doesn’t have to be a magnum opus. It just has to have something special.
- 2nd Category: Newcomer of the Year – The Newcomer who has made the biggest contribution to the community.
- 3rd Category: ROTTer of the Year – Basically, the personality of the year. The person who has stood out for some reason or another.
The winner of each category will receive a special made Rise of the Triad badge, a real physical object for a reward. Anyone that has been watching the community can vote and nominate someone for each category. You can find the Awards thread here, so feel free to stop by and give your vote!
Per-Scan over at the ROTT editing and Modding forum has started a contest. What is the prize you might ask? why its a 3D realms business card signed by Stephen Hornback, the lead Artist for Rise of the Triad! This is a real treasure for hardcore Rise of the Triad fans. Pictures of the prize (the card) Can be found on the Contests thread on the ROTT editing and Modding forum here.
What might you have to do to win this collectors item? Its quite simple really. All you have to do is create either a Fan Picture of something ROTT related, or a Fan Fiction of ROTT. Contest ends on February 17, 2011, so get your entries in by then.
