The current version of the
All-Star CTF client is 1.10. This can be downloaded as a complete client (alst101c.zip) for version 1.01 then upgraded to version 1.10 (alst110u.zip). This is the base client for All-Star CTF,
and includes the client files for ThunderWalker 5.0, CTF Plus! 2.0, Midnight CTF 4.22, and
Xeno CTF 1.1.
Many of the maps for ThunderWalker 4.0 were
not VISed for transparent water in GL Quake. The team at Water VIS has created this
patch (393 k), which uses the VISPatch,
to upgrade the levels for GL Quake users.
The other CTF mods that must be installed
are the clients for Threewave CTF 3, Threewave CTF 4, The CTF Expansion Project 1.4, and
ThunderWalker 3.1. If you have previously downloaded and installed these files, then you
do not need to download them again. If you are missing any of these files, we have created
new .zip files of the mods. The files may be easier to use becasue they are not in
the .pak format, and all of the maps have been VISed for transparent water in GL Quake.
Please note that these files are slightly
different then the original versions in that they do not contain .pak files. Pak files can
be unreliable at times, and there has been difficulty in formalizing a numbering system
for the many mods available. Therefore, these zip files will install the files into the
appropriate directories instead of relying upon the virtual directories in a pak file.
This does nothing to the game itself, but it does create more directories in your CTF
To install the All-Star CTF client, first
make sure that you have downloaded all of the files you need. Then use an unzip program,
such as pkunzip or winzip, to unzip these files into your Quake directory
("c:/quake", for example). Make sure that your unzip program retains the file
structure of the zip files. Once you have unzipped the base client and any of the mod you
needed, All-Star CTF is installed and ready to be enjoyed.
ThunderWalker 4.0 was released
as a separate client, so I have been asked to make a separate Xeno CTF file. This file has just the Xeno maps and skins, as well as the client files
for CTF Plus! and Midnight CTF, and is just for people that downloaded tw_all.zip from
The current version of the All-Star CTF
