Which is the best railgun colour in Quake3?
shaithis: Blue is pretty. What I'd really like to see is variable outter and inner trails. Blue circles with a green core would be DOPE!
Cobby: "Colour"??? What country is this????? Drop that "u",
Lowtax: There's a railgun?
Br34d2th: Heh - love da green, ya know?
Darx: The one that misses me.
Dakkon: My favorite color is Rainbow Sherbert.
Fargo: My railgun always starts out blue, but it's tinged red when it punctures Lowtax's body in mid air. I would say "penetrate" but I didn't want him to get excited.
FL0W3R: Blue, because it reminds me that the Quad is probably back and I must go get it once again to own the llamas!
crt: Suck Red Death
China: I like blue; cyan or magenta might be nice....
How long after you heard that Quake3 test was out did it take you to get the program up and running on your machine?

|I haven't bothered to download it yet.|
shaithis: About ten minutes. heehee. Local copies rule :)
Cobby: Hrmmm wonder if MAC or Linux users had trouble?
Lowtax: GLSetup... aww yeah!
Jeffk: i haX0r3d it in 10 minutes with my illegale w4r3zd copy of Notepad!
Br34d2th: As soon as Tetsuo got GameLaunch support to me :)
Darx: Less than ten minutes.
Dakkon: Q3test is out? I'm still on singleplayer Winquake.
Midnight: Less than an hour
Fargo: No sooner was it released than I was already falling off of the edge in Q3test2
FL0W3R: I hacked it off a bbs with my l33+ H4><012 Capt. Crunch whistle.
crt: I was playing before it finished unzipping
China: Coupla hours; had a bit of trouble w/ the Voodoo2, but that was solved by our office Sniper, Xenon.
Of the 2 maps in q3test, what one do you play the most?
|I don't know which one is which|
|none I can't play q3test|
|I like that one. You know...with the things...|
shaithis: Gamespy is almost entirely a Q3Test2 company.
Cobby: q3test2 baby! Bounce wheeeee bounce wheeee walk off edge aaaeeeiiiiiiiii
Lowtax: Neither. It's Rise of the Triad for me, baby!
Br34d2th: Jump pads ROCK!
Darx: Longest Yard all the way baybee!
Dakkon: Whichever crt feels like getting owned on.
Fargo: I don't really play map two, per se. I just sorta stare at the bottom of the map as it shrinks away in my field of view...
FL0W3R: The one that's ouside with all the jump pads. It's so totally super cool and i OwN!
crt: q3test2 is the only one that matters. That could be the only Q3 map and I would play it forever.
China: Well, we've only play q3test2 here: bouncy!

|...Had no effect on me one way or the other.|
|...was minorly annoying.|
|...was majorly annoying.|

Dakkon: He's Dweomer's best friend. They always go clubbing.
Midnight: MUST DIE!
Fargo: What do you say about a new PlanetQuake T-shirt contest where
the winner is the person who submits the best sound file of Jar-Jar binks falling
off of Q3test2?
FL0W3R: I happen to think Jar Jar Binks is a fine, young, canibal!!
