From: Stephen Petroschek
Subject: 2 players, 1 computer

Is there a way to have two separate configs that are easily switched between. My mom and I are getting tired of always changing the player model.

Thanx Greyryder

One way to do it is to make a config for each of you. Each with your own settings, movement binds, player name and model etc... Then you make a shortcut for each player based on the config. Say yours is kid.cfg and hers is mom.cfg, then each shortcut would be personalized like so: right click on the quake3.exe file in your Quake III Arena folder and choose create shortcut. Then right click on the shortcut and choose properties. In the Target field you would add "+exec kid.cfg" (without quotes) Make sure there is a space after the quake3.exe. It would look like this: "C:\Quake III Arena\Quake3.exe" +exec kid.cfg

Then you would follow the same procedure for Mom. Now you each have a shortcut to execute Quake 3 with your own config.

If you are both also playing online, the perfect program for you is GameSpy3D. It allows you to choose a Player Profile and each Profile can choose a model and custom config. It is available in shareware and each of you are welcome to your own copy of it as well. You make the choice. It will give you thousands of servers to choose from and launching your game with your custom settings is as easy as can be.

Subject: Where is the CTF Info?

Look, this may sound dumb, but I've been playing Quake for years and years, and have recently started playing Quake CTF (orig.), however, I cannot find any sites which cater for this specifc mod (there are half life CTF sites, etc, but no Quake CTF sites as far as I can see). I want to know if there are any good communication scrips out there, and importantly, how the heck you play sounds that people send accross the network - for example a team communication might say "help needed at flag #def ~def.wav" It seems that people are using some sort of command to play a sound byte, but I can neither hear it, nor know how to send my own. - How is it done?? Thanks heaps Anon.

Well this one threw me way off! I thought that CTF was the most popular and easiest to find mod in Quake! Let me throw out a portion of the list of resources for CTF:

CTF Central
S.A.S.'s Guide to CTF
Joe Manio's Configs
Loki's Minion
Vanilla CTF - at Frag.com
Fileplanet's CTF Downloads page (has 20 CTF mods-each with file downloads)

And of course there is always the Planetquake Quake 2 modifications section listed on the left hand side of the screen in the menu - called Modifications.

Now for the sounds, you cannot hear them because sound files do not send through the server. Any sound files are for your ears only. If you bind a key to play a wav file, only you will hear it. Take a look at Joe Manio's configs for CTF, they are excellent.

Subject: Quake 3 CTF maps

Hi, i was looking through your q3 ctf level guide and saw three levels i wanted but could not find on your web-site. They are: 1) q3wctf1 "bloodlust" 2) q3wctf2 "Courtyard Condum" 3) q3wctf3 "Finnegan's Revenge" It would be off great help to me if you could send theses levels to me as an attachment, or give me an internet URL.

THANK YOU!!!

Those are Zoids CTF maps in the Threewave map pak. You can get it at Fileplanet

Subject: Quake 3 Console commands

Is there a Quake 3 Arena console command that can give players a certain item and amount? For example... If I'm hosting a game and I want everyone to start out with a railgun with full ammo, or a shotgun with 20 shells, or a grappling hook whenever they spawn (or respawn) into the game.

Thanks.

What you are looking for is the Beryllium mod for Quake 3. This mod allows you to customize your server to supply certains guns or ammo, runes (power ups) the grapple, whatever you would like. They also supply some example configs and have a FAQ and documentation page with great explanations. Piece of cake to use! Check it out.

Subject: Quake 3 models

I am not sure if you are who I should contact, but I was wondering what programs are supported for Quake 3 model making. Thank you in advance. Steve

Once again, the Planetquake menu on the left is a beautiful thing... In the Quake III Arena section, there is a listing under Add-ons called models/skins. There you find a list of hosted sites that offer you tutorials, resources and even more links than you could imagine.

One of our finest sites for this is Polycount. Famous the Quake World over for the offering of skins and resources. A definite must see!
