Subject: Running Quake 3 in Bot play
I have had so many e-mails about running mods, using bots, and enabling cheats in single player bot play in Quake 3, I
thought it was time to review an old friend. Q3Offline. This utility is small and very handy. It is a one-stop setup to
running your game for single bot play, a LAN game or to run a server. Totally easy tabbed sections to configure everything you need.
First screen you have you can set up your game type, command line, warm-up, fraglimit, timelimit, weapon respawn, and enable
Give all or God mode.
next tab not only lets you choose your maps but all your custom maps can be loaded and previewed here. If you're like me, a map whore, you don't
remember which map is which. Q3Offline lets you view it in advance of playing. Just check the ones you want in your rotation.
In the bots tab you not only get a complete list of your bots but again, a preview. And you can set them to
have certain skills and how many will play.
server tab allows you to specify None for single bot play, or a LAN or a dedicated server. Then of course your hunkmegs and rate settings so the server runs
efficiently. Also set a server password and rcon assword.
Last, you get a copy of the server config that you can adjust manually or copy and paste into notepad to use some
There you have it. The easiest way to get to know your Quake 3 Arena!
