  • Quake 4 Point Release 1.3 coming soon...

    Pretty interesting...

    Originally posted by id Software
    With the upcoming release of the QUAKE 4 1.3 Point Release we?re making great strides in tuning and tweaking the QUAKE 4 multiplayer gaming experience based on feedback from the people playing it the most.

    We?re implementing a number of community requested features and actual gameplay changes to QUAKE 4 gameplay which will provide a faster, smoother, and more highly competitive experience that we hope particularly appeals to those playing QUAKE 4 regularly and/or competitively, but also makes the game even more fun for new players. You can expect increased mobility and control, improved performance with ambient lighting options, and weapon alterations that advance playability and challenge competitive players.

    We?ve noticed several LAN and competitive events considering what games to use for their future events, and we would encourage players and organizers to give 1.3 a try ? we think you?ll like it. We feel these competition friendly changes, coupled with an all-new gametype, a new weapon, and several professionally made maps will extend the life of QUAKE 4 for all players. We?re currently in a small, private beta test of the point release and hope to have it out publicly sometime before QuakeCon.

          zerowing seems pretty bogged down atm... i guess thats a good sign (shows that there's at least enough quake4 playing linux'ers to use up most of that server's bandwidth

              So how is everyone enjoying the Quake 4 v1.3 patch?

              It's running here but I haven't tried the actual gameplay changes, other than benchmarking.

                Its pretty fun, but that napalm launcher is a bit overpowered, its like a grenade launcher (thats on fire) that doesn't bounce.

                    Smp

                    Is there any chance that there will be a Phoronix article testing the SMP Support and FPS gain in Quake 4? There is supposed to be better SMP support with this latest update to Quake 4.
