As many of you know, I've been working on a project I've dubbed Project Hijack. It injects code into another process during runtime (a practice known as Runtime Process Infection, or RPI). I've been working quite slowly on it for over a year and almost have it ready for a pre-beta preview release. I have one thing left to do. I hope to release it within the next one to two weeks.

So, today I discovered Nexuiz. Nexuiz is an open-source first person shooter, based on the Quake3 engine. Well, someone a few days ago mentioned it in irc (maybe rpag?). I installed it today and was really impressed by it.

We're going to set up a dedicated Nexuiz server. I would like to hold a Hack3r-sponsored game the weekend before Defcon (the 1st of August) to get us all in the mood for Defcon. What does everyone think?

Just updating everyone on the current involvements. now has a store for those that wish to buy merchandise. A percentage of this goes to Hack3r so that we can pay for services, hosting, and hardware upgrades for the Roothack suite.

The store can be seen at

Lattera is moving forward with the scorebot and It is apparently on schedule.

The new wargames are under full development by mantis and s0kket and are moving forward.

I have a list of projects that I currently need help with.
Get with the leads if you are interested in helping

Scorebot: This is a scorebot for the regular rootwars games.
Lead: Lattera
Other: Being coded in C. Realize if you help on this project you wont be able to play in its initial release.

Website: This is the hack3r/roothack website project.
Lead: ocyrus

This will kick off our wargames consistency streak.
This wargame is in memory of Epic, RIP.

I plan to have consistent wargames, Once a month to begin. Always in the middle.
This is however subject to change as things come up.
