ubject: Looking for maps and ATI woes

I 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 ???

For 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.

For 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.

Subject: Quake and TNT2 Pro card

do 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

The 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.

Now, 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. "

Subject: Cable woes

I 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 provide. Mike

That 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.

There 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.
