    I've been waiting on the logo for a game for a while now, does that mean my connection is that bad?

    Been playing this on the Aussie servers since early beta. It's pretty damn good and playing some of the key levels over and over has gotten me to appreciate the level design.

    Fanny tastic I'll definately check this out.

    You know like on a film when the old guy gets bought back into a war and he comes back to life. This is what I feel like playing this again.

    Devpick - Jetpacks

    DevPick Jan 28-30: JetPacks!

    If you've ever doubted that you couldn't fly, well don't stop believin' because this week's DevPick is my personal favorite: JetPacks! This time it works a little differently, however. While everybody still spawns with the Flight powerup, the amount of flight is much less, only about 4 seconds. The difference is whenever you aren't holding down your Use Item button to fly, your JetPack will magically recharge back to 100%. Take a journey and live like a spaceman all weekend long, before it's too late.

    JetPack CTF and FFA will be running on all weekend. Make sure you have a handy bind for Use Item in order to use your new found ability!
    bind key "+button2"

    I'm a big Quake fan, but I hate playing games on my computer. I wish they released this on PSN or something.

    Its the only way to play Quake to be honest. Using a controller will severely gimp your ability even if playng agains other controller players. Bunnyhop wil be extremely hard to do.

    Hey man, I was owning people at Unreal Tournament III, and that game supported the mouse and keyboard.

    Also, bunnyhopping is annoying to do anyway. I'd rather die than bunnyhop!

    UT3 on PS3 didnt allow keyboards to play against controllers. Also UT3 was slowed down for the consoles.
    I think I found a rare breed, a lesser spotted non bunnyhopping Quaker.
    Quake is all about speed sure bunnyhoppings is a bug in Q1 but 2,3,4 and Live it is coded in.

    Plus I doubt many consoletards own them for their console.

    Well, I don't know what to say. UT3 on the PS3 and Quake III on the Dreamcast were both a blast to play, and the Dreamcast didn't even have dual analogue sticks.

    I love the speed, but using a mouse and keyboard just takes away the fun for me, especially the keyboard.

    Quake III Arena on the Dreamcast was excellent. I ended up purchasing the mouse and keyboard combination so I could play against PC gamers to a relatively decent standard. Loved that game with my little Dreamcast 33.6k dial-up modem. For shooters, especially ones that play at high speed; a mouse and keyboard is essential in my opinion.

    I've got an account for Quake Live that I've had since Beta. I'm a little worried about becoming incredibly addicted to it again though, Lol.

    Had some great games ove the weekend mostly CTF this one was especially close, we were behind 4-5 with less than 20 seconds to go I had all but given up (as you will see when I respawned) but 1 player persisted grabbedf lag and capped with 1 second to spare forcing overtime.
    I guess in Quake its not over until the time runs out, 20 seconds is enough



    Quality is a bit rubbish due to usign Fraps, cl_avidemo doesnt capture audio and I cannot be arsed capturing seperate and syncing it just for a short clip like this.

    Quality stuff. Each time I talk about Quake, I come one step closer to setting it back up - I'm actually just going to load it on this laptop to see what happens. Lol.

    Even though it's 12 years old this year, Quake III Arena is still the best multiplayer FPS I've ever played. So much fun.

    The only thing I don't like about Quake Live is the absence of music. I forget if the PC version of Quake III Arena had music, but I know the Dreamcast version had an awesome soundtrack.

    That was fun Keefy. A lot has changed since I last played online though! Can you give me some quick info on the CTF tweaks like 'Scout' etc?

    I'm rusty as hell but think I'll get it back soon enough.

    Yea GG's I'm not exactly expert myself I only started Quake in December 2008 when I got a Beta Live account I was more into Half-Life Deathmatch.
    Have to do copy paste the CTF guide here I supose.

    Theres a custom amp of "the edge" from Q2 maybe you played it?
    To play it you extract into (win7/vista) C:\Users\username\AppData\LocalLow\id Software\quakelive
    then start a practice match open console and type map ontheedge-beta

    Not to worry, found the manual section on their site.

    Makes sense now.

    Yes, I would be willing to upgrade to pro status if a few people would join in the not too distant future, at the moment I only have a premium account so cannot spawn servers. to do so would require pro account.
