New Quake 3 Point release available
First announced and then postponed again and again, of course, we're talking about the new Quake 3 Arena patch that is supposed to work miracles.
After id-Software took a little more for the internal beta test, the new patch in version 1.29f was released to the public as beta today. In addition to the new tournament maps, the old net code of the first-person shooter was also revised so that the amount of data transferred could be reduced in a ratio of 5: 1. Furthermore, an auto-update system and new weapon effects have now been integrated into the game. However, the latter must first be activated with a special command. More information on this and more information about the new patch can be found in the Readme . The new point release, which has a size of 25MB and is not compatible with previous versions, can be downloaded here .
