Subject: LANning

ok I have a pentium 1 100 and a 486 66mhz. i know i can only play quake 1 is software mode, but this is my first lan experience. now i am trying to set up a network from one to the other, i have everything configured correctly and two working ethernet cards(thank god!)inside. but when i open network neighborhood or try to connect for a quake lan game, the other computer doesnt show up. in network neighborhood, all i see is my computer and the entire network sign. i clicked on the entire network sign and all i see is my self. the same exact thing happens on the other computer. im stumped. and the ternet cable is fine, i have tried two different cables. but i think it might be the computers, because my friend and i lanned two p3 zeon 800's up with two 10-base-t ethernet cards and it worked fine.

Sounds to me like you may have missed a simple, but often over looked step.  Go to each hard drive, right click it and choose "sharing".  Make sure the drivers are shared.   Your computers needed to show up on the network before you tried to connect to Quake.  Be sure your network can see each other before you try to do anything else. Ping the other computer by going to Start menu, Run, type ping and the IP of the other computer.

It's also important to have set up the tcp/ip settings properly.  Did you assign IP's?  There is a help file for Network Neighborhood in Windows, might want to break it out just about now to walk you through your Network setup.

Subject: Wheelmouse in Quake3

Hi,

I had just got used to the MS Dual Strike, (you know, the twisty turny
thing), when, in the midst of gibbing, the hat switch fell off. I am now
trying to get used to the mouse keyboard combo. Everything seems OK, but I
can't seem to switch weapons using the wheel-up and wheel-down actions. I
have set this up to work in the Setup-Controller screen in Q3A, but it
doesn't work in the game.
Any ideas how to get this working??

Yours out of ammo and searching for the RL key,

Mortal Wombat

It would have been good to know what wheelmouse you bought.  But I can speak on principle here. There are a few mice out there that absolutely require the newest drivers in order to work with Quake 3. So head over to the website of your mouse manufacturer and get them.  Then there is the case of the Logitech wheelmouse, it has a special game exactable that makes a change to your registry so it will be recognized.  Again, at the manufacturer's website.

Mice are no longer the "dead" piece of hardware they used to be.  They do more now, no more default Windows driver for us!

Subject: Quake3 Minimum Req's

I have just purchased quake3 and when installing a warning box appears saying that minimum requirements 64MB I have 32 and sum change kb.Also says if I continue installation,would not guarantee results.what do I do now? Will it eat up all my memory??

Let me tell you my very simple concept here:  Manufacturer's suggested minimum requirements are what the game WILL run on.  NOT what will make the game run WELL.  So Dawn, take into account that 64megs MINIMUM is what WILL run the game, but not necessarily WELL. You do the math.... if the game requires 64, you have 32, and you run any other programs (*ahem* Windows) then you are looking at negative ram here Dawn.
