” 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
Yet another update, with a lot of fixes level-wise.
Get it here or here.
Here’s an update, with a bugfixes and all the proper pistols.
Unfortunately the save problem is still there
Return of the Triad, a TC for ZDoom has been released.
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.
Creator of the Return of the Triad TC for Doom II has just released an update to v1.1. This version is mostly a “bug-fix” release, fixing many of the initial complaints from the fan base. el zee has also created his own frontend program for this release that even displays your IP address, making it easier to get online games going. There is one particularly special thing in this release though. el zee has painstakingly recreated the first level of the ROTT shareware for this release, and can be played by typing “-warp 30″ in the command parameter box in his frontend.
You may download v1.1 from one of these locations:
Got two updates for you ROTTers today:
New Video Walk-Through for Mike Millers episode “Mike’s Madness”
Awhile back Mike Miller, creator of the user episode “Mike’s Madness”, was talked into creating a video walk-through of him playing through his own levels. So far levels 1-5 have been uploaded on his site for your viewing pleasure, level 5 (Grand Plans Cut Short) having been uploaded just today. If you enjoy seeing people play through ROTT levels (though remember this is of his own created levels, not Dark War) then stop by http://mikemiller.net/rott/mikemad_walkthrough/ and give them a view.
Community Map File Begins
Today marks the beginning of a first in Rise of the Triad history, the first ever attempted (to my knowledge at least) community ROTT project. The official thread is located here: http://rott.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=366&mforum=rott . The Project leader was saddened by the fact that there was no evidence that something like this has ever been attempted before, and is attempting it now. Any people interested in ROTT mapping, or those that have never been involved in ROTT mapping before, are encouraged to join in on the project.
