New Q3 Point Release Beta early next week
Robert Duff, programmer at id Software, announced that they will be releasing a new point release beta for Q3 early next week. The network code has been revised so that the traffic should now be compressed to 1/4 of the previous traffic.
This should give modem users in particular a considerable advantage. In addition, all players should be able to perceive an improvement in FPS (frames per second). Id Software has also taken on and fixed the cheats known to them. It is only a matter of time before some people are able to find another way to cheat. The new point release will have a new protocol because some of the code has been changed.
