Ubuntu 9.04, ATi graphics, and dual-head 2009-04-28 21:43:27

After upgrading to Kubuntu 9.04 and destroying my X configuration, I found it difficult to get my dual head setup back.

After some searching I found the solution on a wordpress site from "jen3ral" here. Within minutes I have my dual-head configuration working again.

To summarize what is there, you basically need to add:


To the [AMDPCSROOT/SYSTEM/DDX] section of your /etc/ati/amdpcsdb file. Then add the following to the device section(s) of your xorg config:

Option "EnableRandR12" "false"

After doing that I was able to "sudo amdcccle" and change the monitor setup to dual head. Now that everything is working for me, I can finally recommend people to upgrade!

Server Browser Canceled 2009-04-19 02:46:03

As of today, the BitOwl server browser has been canceled to combine efforts into Doomseeker. Skulltag's official browser.

Doomseeker 0.1 alpha has been released. Go to for more information.

Announcing Doomseeker 2009-04-19 02:44:29

Doomseeker version 0.1 has been released. I have to hand this release to Zalewa, who did quite a bit of work in about a period of a week.

Doomseeker is Skulltag's new open source and official server browser. It is also probably the fast server browser out there querying all server is approximately 2 seconds!

Go check out the news post for more information.

In addition this means that my old server browser has been canceled.

ZDoom 2.3.0 and More 2009-03-04 01:48:17

After a year, Randy has released a new version of ZDoom. This release includes a few of my own changes namely Chex Quest support and a great deal of new SBarInfo features. The release also uses SBarInfo to render the Doom status bar. Head on over to to check out the new release.

This means that SBarInfo will be coming out of its feature freeze, so expect Heretic's status bar to go scripted soon. Of course there are other things eating my time right now so it will probably be another few weeks before I can get to that, or any other projects for that matter.

Public development is slow from me right now, but I may or may not have something to show mid April. Depending how I feel about the end product.
