Well, that there is in our Classic Quake Info & Resources Guide but I figured I get so many emails asking the same question, what the heck.  Here it is again:

-width 400 -height 300
-width 512 -height 384
-width 640 -height 480
-width 800 -height 600
-width 1024 -height 768
-width 1152 -height 864
-width 1280 -height 1024

Just pick one and add it to your command line.

Subject: Quake 1 sound

Hi,
I just but Quake 1 and I'm really enjoying it but it doesn't give me any
sound when I play the DOS or the Q95 versions. I get a message that
"the SoundBlaster variables are not set and the sound effects are
desabled. See readme.txt for help". I've looked in the readme file but
it doesn't tell me how to configure my soundblaster "compatible"
soundcard. What can I do? Are there code lines that I can add to the
config.cfg or the autoexec.cfg file I am using for the +mlook command.
I want to use one of these files, among other things, because I have a
friend that also has this game and we want to play via modem.

Thank you for any help that you my offer me.

Paul

We really need to know what your soundcard is and what version of Windows you are running.  But to speak in a general way....  Most soundcards these days do not install DOS drivers.  That is what you are lacking for the sound.  However, that is also because most games are not meant to be played in DOS anymore either.  And that is why our Quake Gods created QuakeWorld.  So you don't play DOS Quake anymore.

But, if you don't have a video card that supports opengl either (let this email be a lesson to all of who you e-mail us with absolutely no system info) and are using Windows 95 then WinQuake is for you.

Subject: Sudden Lag

Hi. I visit your site a lot to download mods and skins for quake 2, but i
recently started have a serious problem with my quake 2. Every time i go
in a game for quake 2 no matter what the server is "i like gamespy or
heat.net " but when i get in the game i play for around 3-5 minutes and
i get the lag symbol in the corner of the screen and i can't move and it
never goes away. This started about a week ago, can you help me out?


The first thing I would do is check yourself.  In other words, did you install anything right before it happened?  Did you change any system properties, any tcp/ip settings, any video card settings, add any new hardware or any mod in particular for Quake 2?  Those are all things that may have created a change either to your game, system, or hardware.

If all of that checks out, it's time to test your lines and your ISP.  Refer to our Blame the ISP article or stay tuned for next week's article, it will knock your connectivity socks off!  If you find it's not your system it may be time to call your ISP and see if there has been any changes on their end.  Or have your phone lines checked.  The key here is, what is different now than a week ago?
