John Diamond has announced a new release of Alien Arena, the alien-themed open-source first person shooter built off the id Tech 2 game engine.
New in Alien Arena 2011 (v7.51) is a rewrite of the BSP surface rendering to yield performance increases, a complete rewrite of the OpenGL vertex buffer object (VBO) code, and a complete rewrite to the post-process effects. There's also improvements to shadow mapping for dynamic shadows, graphical updates and bug-fixes, new and revamped levels, and support for downloading of IQM meshes.
