YEAH BABY !!!! Monty is back and all fired up with what could be described as one huuuuuge mofo news update. So settle back, grab a nice cold pack of Tim Tam's and enjoy the read. Some of it's older and some is hot off the web. ENJOY.

GameSpy version 2.57 has been released for shareware and registered users. This new version includes the following new features:
- Support for Command & Conquer: Renegade, Global Operations, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Serious Sam: the Second Encounter
- SmartSpy filtering by country (This is great stuff! Try adding a SmartSpy list and choose servers only in the United Kingdom for Half-Life, for example - only ~900 servers to update/refresh! That's much better than refreshing all 27,000 Half-life servers).
- Improved auto-patching

Abit has released new beta bios files for the KR7A / KG7 / KT7 with the following changes:
KR7A 7G03 <http://fae.abit.com.tw/download/beta/kr7a/>:

1. Support AMD AthlonXP 2100+ CPU.
2. Fix CPU fan N/A problem for specific low speed CPU fan.
3. HPT 37x BIOS version 2.0.1024.The RAID function is for KR7A-RAID only. This BIOS version is also for non RAID boards and HPT BIOS will be automatically disabled while RAID controller chip not detected.
3. BIOS compile date: 4/12/2002.
In BIOS release 7G several new options were added to the 'CPU and PCI Bus Control' page. These are described below:
PCI Master Read Caching (Disable/Enable)
This allows the controller to read data ahead of the PCI master from memory into the CPU L2 cache, especially during burst cycles (memory read line and other advanced commands). This boosts the performance of PCI masters at the expense of using some of the CPU's L2 cache. Users of the Duron processor (which has a smaller L2 cache) should leave this as disabled as the loss of cache would reduce performance. Users of the Athlon processors (Thunderbird, XP) can enable this to improve PCI performance (eg. disk performance) but may still suffer a CPU performance penalty. You should experiment to see what works best for you.
PCI Master Bus Timeout (Disable/001/010/011/100/101/110/111)
Determines the number of PCI clock cycles (in increments of 32 PCICLK cycles) the controller waits before disconnecting a device if the first data access is not completed. This option can often be used to resolve issues with data corruption on disks and crackling with soundcards.
Master Priority Rotation Control (Disable/01/10/11)
This controls how quickly the CPU can access the PCI bus. If you choose 01 then the CPU will always be granted access right after the current master transaction completes, irrespective of how many other PCI bus masters are in the queue. This provides the quickest CPU access to the bus but the poorest performance for PCI devices. If you choose 10 then the CPU gets access after the current and next access, and if you choose 11 then the CPU must wait for the current access plus the next two. Whatever you choose, the CPU always get access after a maximum of three PCI master grants.
Master Delay Transaction (Disable/Enable)

It is not clear how this differs from the PCI Delay Transaction option
KG7 8S00 <http://fae.abit.com.tw/download/beta/kg7/>:

1. Support AMD AthlonXP 2100+ and 0.13 micron process AthlonXP CPU.
2. HPT 37x BIOS version 2.0.1024. The RAID function is for KG7-RAID only. This BIOS version is also for non RAID boards and HPT BIOS will be automatically disabled while RAID controller chip not detected.
3. BIOS compile date: 4/12/2002.
KT7A Version 1.3 or higher 8T00 <http://fae.abit.com.tw/download/beta/kt7s/bios/>:

1. Support AMD AthlonXP 2100+ and 0.13 process AthlonXP CPU.
2. HPT 37x BIOS version 1.11.0402.The RAID function is for KT7A-RAID only. This BIOS version is also for non RAID boards and HPT BIOS will be automatically disabled while RAID controller chip not detected.
3. BIOS compile date: 4/12/2002.

PC-Extreme <http://www.pc-extreme.com> has posted up a very handy guide on AGP 4x vs. AGP 2x vs. AGP 1x <http://www.pc-extreme.com/artikel/tuning/agp/>. The guide is descrobed like this:
I had so many emails from people asking me the same question over and over again and that question was which setting is fastest for AGP speed in games AGP 4x or AGP 2x or is it AGP 1x . So in the end I have tested theses settings with five different Benchmarks Aquanox, Comanche4, Serious Sam 2, Jedi Outcast, Quake3.
The only drawback you may find with the article is that it is in German but if you're die hard, just use the old Babel fish <http://world.altavista.com>at Altavista for the translation.

Ipswitch WS_FTP Pro 7.5 has been released. Ispwitch <http://www.ipswitch.com/Products/WS_FTP/index.html> is classing this as a major release and thus you will need to pay for the upgrade from your old version. Here are the huge list of changes:
Faster File Uploads:
Interactive Tutorials & Upload Wizard
Step-by-step directions that walk you through the essentials of using FTP including connecting to an actual ftp site and transferring a file to and from your PC.
Easily accessible from the Start menu or by right clicking on any file in Windows Explorer, the Upload Wizard steps the user through directly and quickly uploading files and folders directly from Windows Explorer to an ftp server.
Increased productivity:
Connection Process
More intuitive and direct connections through these features:
Sites Menu enables you to save your current ftp connection as a favorite site, create new sites using the New Site wizard, and organize your favorites.
Connection dialog box makes it easy to create new sites, connect to your favorites, and get assistance via tutorials and reference tools.
Shortcuts for the quickest connections
Increased reliability:
Auto Resume & Auto Retry Options
Auto Retry: Allows you to define the number of automatic retries for failed downloads to increase your chance of a successful transfer.
Auto Resume: Automatically resume or restart interrupted or failed transfers if any session is terminated involuntarily (ex. broken connections, application closure, computer shut down, or interruption of power. Once WS_FTP Pro is restarted it automatically reconnects and completes the interrupted transfer.
Better Management:
Improved Transfer Manager
An added Transfer History summarizes the most recent transfer sessions, presents successful uploads/downloads, and allows for downloaded files to be executed via a right-click.

Here's a little tweak that will shut XP down fast:
Go to Start --> Run and type Regedit
Navigate to :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control

Click on the 'Control' Folder
In the right window you will see this key WaitToKillServiceTimeout
Double click that key and set it a value lower than 2000 - we set ours to 100
Reboot.
Remeber, ALWAYS back up your registry before making any changes.

A new version (5.01) of DivX has been released. This version fixes all the bugs listed below and DivX Player 2.0 Alpha 3:
Improved:
Psychovisual modeling enhancements now reallocate saved bits in an improved manner, meaning the psychovisual modeling mode will produce better visual quality. Improved the workaround for a DirectShow bug that causes the requested bitrate to not be respected by the codec during one-pass encoding. This affects applications (such as video capture applications) that use the DivX DirectShow interface to access the codec. This problem is due to a bug in DirectShow, not in DivX itself, but we have a workaround that should solve the problem.
Fixed:
Fixed a bug where the divx.dll library would not decode DivX 3.x content properly. This affected applications like VirtualDub that use the VfW interface to use DivX. The problems this caused, such as blank frames, are now fixed.
Fixed a bug where basic deinterlace functionality would cause the codec to crash on Pentium 4 processors.
Fixed a problem where using data paritioning and psychovisual modeling together would produce severe visual artifacts. These settings can now be used together.
Fixed an issue where encoding content with resolutions not divisible by 16 would cause purple and pink artifacts to appear in the encoded content. These artifacts no longer appear. You can now encode content that has resolutions divisible by 4 or 8, however we still strongly recommend encoding only content with resolutions divisible by 16, as the 4 and 8 dimensions will not encode as efficiently. (There remains a known issue <http://www.divx.com/support/divx/divx_knownissues.php> about resolutions divisible by 2.)
Fixed a bug where the DirectShow filter would not use the overlay properly with Matrox Millennium video cards on Windows 2000. It now works properly.
What's New with DivX Pro 5.01:
A 'field order' check box was added to the 'All frames are telecine' option in the IVTC inverse telecine (3:2 pulldown) mode. This allows the codec to be used with video capture cards that have their fields reversed (i.e., top field first instead of bottom field first). Checking this box tells the codec to take this reversed field order into account during the IVTC process.
Improved:
Psychovisual modeling enhancements now reallocate saved bits in an improved manner, meaning the psychovisual modeling mode will produce better visual quality.
Improved the workaround for a DirectShow bug that causes the requested bitrate to not be respected by the codec during one-pass encoding. This affects applications (such as video capture applications) that use the DivX DirectShow interface to access the codec. This problem is due to a bug in DirectShow, not in DivX itself, but we have a workaround that should solve the problem.
Updated the inverse telecine (3:2 pulldown) thresholds to do a better job of catching all combing artifacts. Previously, some interlacing artifacts could get through the IVTC process, but this is not true any more.
Fixed:
Fixed a bug where the use of crop and resize functions would cause garbled output in both AVI and DivX files. The crop and resize functions no longer cause visual artifacts.
Fixed a bug where VirtualDub would crash and/or disappear after the first pass when using resize and crop features. This no longer happens.
Fixed a problem where crop and resize settings would not remain between the first and second passes during two-pass encoding. The settings now remain as they should.
Fixed an issue where bilinear resize would not always work properly. Bilinear resize should now work with no problems.
Fixed a problem where the resize function would crash when expanding the source content.
Fixed an issue where the Intelligent IVTC and two-pass encoding modes would not work properly when used together.
Fixed a problem where 'All Frames Interlace' would not always work properly.
Fixed a bug that caused global motion compensation (GMC) to produce artifacts on top of the picture during encoding.
Fixed a bug where using data partitioning and GMC together would produce visual artifacts in the encoded video. This no longer happens.
Fixed a bug where the divx.dll library would not decode DivX 3.x content properly. This affected applications like VirtualDub that use the VfW interface to use DivX. The problems this caused, such as blank frames, are now fixed.
Fixed a bug where basic deinterlace functionality would cause the codec to crash on Pentium 4 processors.
Fixed a problem where using data paritioning and psychovisual modeling together would produce severe visual artifacts. These settings can now be used together.
Fixed an issue where encoding content with resolutions not divisible by 16 would cause purple and pink artifacts to appear in the encoded content. These artifacts no longer appear. You can now encode content that has resolutions divisible by 4 or 8, however we still strongly recommend encoding only content with resolutions divisible by 16, as the 4 and 8 dimensions will not encode as efficiently. (There remains a known issue <http://www.divx.com/support/divx/divx_knownissues.php> about resolutions divisible by 2.)
Fixed a bug where the DirectShow filter would not use the overlay properly with Matrox Millennium video cards on Windows 2000. It now works properly.
Changed:
Changed the 'Intelligent IVTC' mode to 'All frames are telecine.' The mode now only processes sources that are completely telecine'd and not hybrid sources. (The codec can still handle hybrid sources that are partially interlaced and partially progressive.) We found that processing hybrid telecine sources is impossible without tighter control of the encoding application. We will work to add this functionality back into a future release.
What's New With DivX Player 2.0 Alpha 3:
Integrated the new DivX 5.0.1 decoder into the application.
Added support for variable bitrate (VBR) MP3 audio tracks in DivX videos. This support is not complete, but it is much improved over previous versions. Most files with VBR audio should work properly.
Added brightness/contrast/saturation controls into the application. These can be accessed via the Options dialog.
Improved:
Improved application stability across the board, particularly when opening and playing multiple files back to back without exiting the application in between viewings.
Fixed:
Fixed an issue with the handling of FOURCC codes in AVI files. There was a minor bug in previous application versions that would interpret the FOURCC code incorrectly. This would cause some files to play improperly for no apparently reason.
Fixed an issue that would cause files encoded with FlaskMPEG and its derivatives (e.g., Xmpeg) to not playback properly in the application. This is actually due to a bug in the way that FlaskMPEG, et al. set FOURCC codes, but we now workaround this problem.

Mods4Me <http://www.mods4me.com> has posted a very interesting article titled, DDR Timings And What They Do <http://www.mods4me.com/reviews.php?op=showcontent&id=17>. Here's a little on what it is all about:
After showing you how to maximize your FSB now I think it's time to explain the memory timings to you. Hopefully you will be able to use these 2 guides together to not only get the highest bus speeds but also get the most memory bandwidth and performance out of your RAM.
You can read the whole article here <http://www.mods4me.com/reviews.php?op=showcontent&id=17> and hopefully some of those confusing bios settings will now look a little clearer.


EPoX has posted a new 8KHA bios update that includes the following new features:
