Return of tha GurK.
Im finally back!, it's sure been quite a while since i last made an update here, and numerous things have happend. I'll try and explain it all here, and what the prospects and ideas of the future is.
Let me first set one thing clear for all you out there, No i haven't given up my site!.. no, no and no, and i never will.. so hold on to those mails asking why i ain't updating. (although i like getting mails.)
I have been quite busy the last couple of months, or shall we call it Humungus megabusy... Anyway, my work as a webdesigner take a lot of my time. And sad to say, it puts you of to the idea of going home after work, and updating you site.
This and the facts that my girlfriend and the summer partys take up a great deal of my spare time, is making it hard to keep the site up to date.
But this was not the biggest problem i had, i planned an update a while back. Only to notice that the ftp login to my homepage site was out of order. So i couldn't get access to the site and make changes. But today the bloody thing worked again, and im updating as we speak ;o)
In the future, i'll move the whole site to a new domain, (allready did actually) im hosting it at work now, i have an ip an all. (plus unlimited webspace ;o) All i need now is an domain to point the ip to. (guess what the domain will be ;o)
So now i'll start working hard on a new upgrade of the site.... it might not be the 2.0 to 3.0 update,.. but it sure as hell will be a new 2.5 version site! ;o)
I've advanced quite a bit in webdesign, and to tell you the truth, i think this site sux!. I would like to do a whole makeover, but that'll take forever with the little time i have. ;o/
I sure would like to implement some shockwave or flash3 on the site, but i won't do that untill the browsers make that into an standard. I'll try and make the page viewable for you all.
So hold on to your tags, and a new GurkoZ Productions site 2.5 will be up an running. ;o)
In the next update, you'll be able to download all my backdrops in real 1024x768 size!, More creations! and more cool stuff! ;o)
Also!, im in the work of starting a "HOW TO" Graphics/web design section, where you can see and learn how to make some cool GFX/HTML work.
AND!, i've just got me a job as a Webdesigner!... weeeeeeee! ;o)
Quake 2 Enhancement look back..
A new version!?.... Well... i've got a lot of mails asking if i will go on, and make more versions of this... hmm.. well.. the answer "should" be,.. NO, because this pak "should" be perfect, and there would be no need for a new version. BUT i never! consider anything finished, you always can make thing better. So i'll continue making small changes and fixes, and in some time, a new version WILL be out! ;o)
Here some of the respones from you guys out there ;o)

New Creations menu...
I've added som sections to it, and a whole bunch of pics and graphics... check it out ;o)
When i made the new menu, i had to change a number of things..... so this turned out to be a bigger project than i thought. The whole site now features:
175 htm pages..
357 jpg files..
49 gif files..
I know.. it's more than it looks... and more it shall be,..
(if only i had more space... grr.. my 10MB is running out.. ;o/)
But what is there to do?. Well, if you want transparent pictures, you must use GIF. So there's not much to do there. On the the JPG pictures you can lower the quality, resulting in crappy resolution. You could remove some graphics, but this i don't like.
The biggest load on the page at start, is the six or seven Gnurk pictures. They are all GIF Transparent.
What i've done now is that i've lowered the quality on some of the jpg's. And made them progressive so they get on screen faster. Also made a new "start" page instead of the "main".
I hope this will make this site load a bit better at startup. But some patience is still required. ;o)
(A new "creation" menu will be up in a wile.)
Tanx again Anti ;o)
After months of hard work and mind cracking html, i've managed to pull off this one man non profit project. It took quite some time and work to make this baby fly.
But now it's here, and i don't regret a second of it.
So what does this new site offer?... you might ask... well, more and better content, that, i can say. Spent a huge amount of time on design and layout, so let's hope you'll find it attractive and easy to use. It now works better with IE and the other browsers. No more annoying wav files, OR midi. My knowledge in HTML and GFX has grown since last, and i hope this shows on this site.
So, i welcome you all to the NEW GurkoZ Productions web HOME. Hope you'll stay a while, and check back some day.
