I got some Dishwasher codes to give out, so I think I’m gonna send a few out over Twitter!
Follow me! I’m @Jamezila (just like my gamertag)
Also, Nick Gravelyn launched xblcg.info, an online database for all things XBLCG. Ratings are in effect, so, if you’re hankering for some cheap Xbox360 homebrew, check it out!
And if you’re going to be at E3, drop me a line. I’m finally able to fund my own trips, and also I didn’t realize that I get in for free as an “industry professional.” Is indie pro now? Eh… can I really care?

Just saw the updated xbox.com popular Xbox Community Games list, and we hit the top ten again! ZP2K9 is #5!
That’s right, we just barely beat those two awful massage games.
A new version with bug fixes is up for peer review now; hopefully it will settle a lot of the 1.0 silliness.
Particularly notable fixes will include:
- Shows what gamer is talking
- Show gamer names under players
- Numerous CTF bug fixes
- On-the-fly server bot count + game type changes
- Team DM spawns random (like vanilla DM)
- 3 second respawn invulnerability
- Bat ceiling hang bonuses switched to invisibility
- Renamed/reskinned Cheetah Suit to Cyborg Suit
Unfortunately, XBCG games don’t force you to update, so it’s a good idea to check the XBCG New Arrivals queue for updates. When ZP2K9 1.0.1 arrives, it’ll be up there. And once most everyone has moved over to 1.0.1, I can start adding more content (maps, suits, etc). Also, from version 1.0.1 and up, ZP2K9 will be a bit smart about notifying you about updates. Workarounds, FTW!
Thanks to everyone who helped make ZP2K9 a sudden success!
