I have to ask, since I LOVE quake3, and the fact its the greatest running first person shooter to be played so smoothly on really low low low end machines. My question is, when you announced on the show about january 10th quake3 lan party, i remember the server being posted game.hak5.org uhmm,


i tried to join it in quake3 yesterday and no luck, just awaiting connection... also...you say january 10th is a lan party, but am i right that you were inviting people over the internet to join up and play? im hoping that this is true as its an event i'd love to attend and frag it up with you guys, but i wanted to know the details i guess, is it infact open to internet players, and that server game.hak5.org it doesnt work right now, but will on the tenth? or whats going on there, do i need a specific version of quake3 also? because i have quake 3 but also have quake3 and expansion (team arena) which came out a couple years after with re-vamped quake3 arena (couple sprites upgraded, etc) and i know that the versions are both different, i cant simply install team arena onto my existing quake 3, i have to install that quake 3 and then use the expansion, so ...

im hoping my regular quake3 arena install ( which i use , because i dont play team arena ) is going to cut it...

that is of course, if this holy fragfest is of course, open to internet players/fans, like myself.

can somebody from the hakhouse help me get a better understanding of these things that i am wondering?

ok yeah i have 1.11 1994, damn. gonna have to find the updates.

can it be confirmed what version the server will run on?

and, is q3.hak5.org currently up and gaming for practice before the event on the tenth? cause i cant seem to connect to it as of yet... maybe i need the right version running first? or its not up. whatever the case i want to game that day and am ready to get everything in order so that i can, so once all the details are worked out, please post them here.

We'll be playing straight Quake 3, not Team Arena or other mods. I think 1.32c is the latest but I'm not positive, i'll have to check.

cpma or nothing

cpma is a competitive mod that fixes a lot of shit in q3. its small and most people have it anyways

baseq3 is LOL

This is how I came to the conclusion that, at least the domain address (correct term?) was up. I apologize if I'm ignorant to proper etiquette; pertaining to the posting of info I have retrieved. Here's what I came up with.
