Looking for maps and ATI woes
am trying to play over the internet, I do not have the maps
for loading. I tried to look for the required maps on Planequake
but could not get them. Here is some of them : actcity2.bsp
rhcity1.bsp urban3.bsp office3.bsp and the list goes on Please
help me. My Quake II is also make a crackling sound, there
are gap between sound as if the speakers are stammering. I
also have a 3D cars- ATI Rage Pro Turbo AGP, and I can not
play quake using OpenGL- Why is that ???
almost every map possible, your best bet is at Fileplanet.
In the Quake 2 section you will find Deathmatch, CTF, and
Single Player maps. However, the maps you mentioned here are
more commonly used in Action Quake 2. An excellent source
for Action Quake 2 maps in the Action
Quake Map Depot.
your other question, it sounds like you need a serious drivers
update. Head on over to Atitech
for the newest drivers for your ATI and whomever manufactured
your sound card should have new drivers also.
Quake and TNT2 Pro card
you know any driver opengl/glide for tnt2 pro cards (erazor
III) to run with quake I, improve quake II performance? quake
I always says glide2x.dll missing thanks for help
best drivers I can recommend for any Nvidia chip card are
the newest drivers found at Reactor
Critical. I test them myself and would not endorse them
otherwise. I am currently using the Detonator 5.08 drivers.
that has nothing, but everything to do with Quake 1 and that
error message. As stated in our last article
: "The first thing you want to do after installing Quakeworld
is to delete that file from your Quake directory.(speaking
about the file opengl32.dll) Your video card will use the
opengl32.dll file (or 3dfxgl.dll file for 3dfx card users)
that is already located in your Windows\system directory.
If you don't delete it, you will receive an error message
to the effect "A required .DLL file, GLIDE2X.DLL, was not
found" That is telling you the opengl32.dll file that
QuakeWorld placed in your Quake folder is not working. As
I said, delete that file. "
have just become a cable subscriber in south florida (media
one) and think I might be having exactly the problems your
talking about. on gamespy with Q3 out of a gazillion or so
servers i get pings under a 100 with only 5 or 10 and even
worse performance with the built in game finder in Q3. That
can't be normal is it? I have a high end machine, is there
anything I can do to help my situation? do you think DSL would
likely be faster or slower? Thanks for any insight you can
is not normal. You should be seeing a lot of server with under
100 ping. One
thing I noticed is that Quake 3 Arena seems to have some of
the lowest pings I have seen. Although I use DSL, it seems
that the servers are running stringer and on better machines
and connections with Quake 3 Arena. I advise you to first
visit Speedguide and
make sure you are up to date on any possible tweaks for your
cable connection there. Then as I suggested to past readers,
use a tracer program to see if you can locate where your connection
goes wrong and bring proof to your provider.
are some basic differences between Cable and DSL. Cable is
like a large network you share with subscribers. All using
the same bandwidth so to speak. With DSL you have a dedicated
line that is yours and only yours. Look at it this way: how
often does your cable have trouble -- an outage, bad picture
etc.? And how often does your telephone service go down or
have a poor connection? The DSL line is more stable and offers
less chance of overcrowding due to sharing with more subscribers
being signed on to your connection. For more info about DSL
and the differences, please visit Flashcom.
