More Quake III Arena
StarBlade & Paul K
I have tried everything I can think of to get my q3server
to send maps and models to people that connect to my server
with no avail.I have tried set sv_allowdownload 1 but that
doesn't work.I even tried moving files to different dirs to
see if that would help. Q2 sent maps,models,you name it with
no problem.Can you give me any help on how to do this or cant
it even be done in q3??
the map download in Q3 work? Any word from the masters at
planetquake? Sierra tech told me to type in "/sv_allowdownload
1", which I did but no maps are downloading. If anybody would
know, I figured the PlanetQuake staff would.
for the help.
is yet another unhappy moment in Quake III land. There is
no autodownload in Quake III and all indication have been
that there never will be. Personal opinion? It sucks! Once
Quake III is as big as Quake 2, how in hell are we going to
locate all the maps, skins, etc... for all the mods that will
come out? My Lithium Quake 2 maps folder is 233MB of maps.
My skins are 87.7MB. Of course Planetquake will try to make
it easy on all of us by offering the best resource for Quake
III but once you enter a game, isn't it just easier to allow
the download and get on with the game?! Thanks id <sarcasm>.
Might I suggest we all request this feature be added to the
next point release? I was told by Activision that id had no
intention of allowing us to disable freelook and that story
changed, so perhaps we can convince them to allow downloads?
Recording a demo
tried several times to record some awesome demos for Q3 Arena.
But, unfortunately I could'nt record anything. When typing
"/record filename" in the console, I get the error massage
that "client/server must have set ...". I´m not home right
know, so I can´t check for the exact words, but I think you
know what he problem might be. I´d be glad if you could mention
a lot, I owe ye something! :-)the
Ol´ Dirty B.
the error message said is correct. And this occurs on that
haunting pure server issue. The server you join needs to have
the line set g_syncronousClients 1 in its config. If they
don't, you don't record a demo. Add that line to your own
config and you can record demos in single player.
wanted to let you know that I used your default q3 config
to add 20fps to my game - under Linux. Using the absolute
default config I could (I had to turn down the sound... the
wife was napping), and the id supplied Mesa I was able to
get 35.8 fps on demo001 for the first and second run after
starting the game. I quit the game, started it back up, ran
the techtips.cfg, and got 58.3 on the first run and 57.7 for
the second run. No other changes were made. I then went back
and made some changes (each changing a setting you had in
your config), and ran the 2 timdemos again, getting 52.6 fps

THAT'S what we wanted to hear!! However, change that ISA soundcard
for a PCI and gain another 5-10fps guaranteed.
Anyone remember Quake 2 and GLQuake?

Quake 2 Rocket Arena performance
I need your HELP ok .... let me explain my computer..
too many details! not)
now ... when I turn on quake2 and go in to 'join network'
and go in to the Deathmatch serer straight away ... I get
a beutiful FPS of 90-100 .... BUT when I go in to Rocket Arena
I get below 60 and when lots of rockets are fired at the same
time it goes slow ... and my friend doesn't seem to have this
problem ... OK now ... this is the strangest thing ... If
I turn on Quake2 then go in to Rocket Arena server and check
my FPS it's 60 ... then from rocket arena if I connect to
Death match server it's 60 !!!! but if I connect straight
away to death match with out going in to rocket arena, I get
100 ! SO .... I thought maybe its some thing that LOADS when
I turn on rocket arena that makes the FPS go to 60 ... maybe
some file like .cfg ? so If I could get the FPS that I get
in DM in RA I would kick ass but it gets slow in RA .....
so please help me I only got my V2 a week ago and I was hoping
it to be faster... thank you for all your help ... I think
it happens when I LOAD as I connect to rocket arena ... you
know when it FLICKERS and then RA loads up ? after loading
THAT ... FPS is always below 60 ... but if I go in to DM its
100 plz HELP me :::
I think it's incredible you get 90-100 fps on a Voodoo 2 on
a P266! You must have something right in that config in Deathmatch.
How are you checking your fps, timerefresh? The other thing
to realize is that Rocket Arena also needs a config. Like
we talked about in previous Techtips Quake
2 Configs , each mod needs a config. When you join a Rocket
Arena server, it looks in your Rocket Arena folder for a config.
There is most likely a default config in there that does not
have any tweaks in it. Tweak it baybeeee!
