Why is it that there is so many updates to the Quake 1 and 2 for OS X yet for Quake 3 and OS X we are left with something that is still in beta? The same people that update the Quake 1 and 2 so ti works with OS X could do a fine job if give the task to update the Quake 3 O X app?..I?m still a Quake 3 player you know?..Quake 1 well when I find the time I?ll have a look?..Quake 3 anytime

    we should start an AI q3 server. it would be great to be able to frag some of you skank. any takers? anyone have the server and ample bandwidth to make this work? some urbanterror would be swell.

    hmmmmmm .ai Services anyone?



    Gotta have something to plug up in the Store link at the top of the page.



    That way when posters start to quarrel they can take their Beef online and Frag each other until their fingers bleed.

    Yeah, I'd like to frag some of you jerks!



    Er, I mean, a nice friendly game of Q3 would be great.



    As to why there are more Q2 and Q1 updates...



    well, first of all, I wouldn't say that the quality is that great. Q3 runs fast in OS X. Q1 and Q2 run about half the speed they run in OS 9, and the Q1 and Q2 ports are having lots of updates because lots of things still don't work in them that already work in Q3.



    Q3 works fine whenever I run it and the 1.32 patch is in development right now and will arrive when it's ready.



    The people at id are working on other projects and probably don't have as much time to devote to Q3, plus they are a real company that does testing and the code is probably much more massive than Q1 or 2, while Fruitz Dojo releases pretty good stuff, but they rely on a lot more feedback from users to find the bugs.

    Maybe you're doing someting wrong, connecting to the wrong servers, or using the wrong version. It works fine for me.



    When? I don't know.

    SOLD!!!



    Gimme an IP and I'll be on yer ass like a fly on... poop







    FYI I'm mediocre at Q3. Been awhile seeing that I'm more into the mods (Urban Terror for one) rather than just fragging in Q3.



    Still... fragging fellow AI members would be great fun



    btw, I'm ZORGALISCIOUS online

    I'm pretty active at the quake3world.com Macintosh forum (as "torq"). We used to have a Friday Frag Fest there. Jump in and post if you have problems with playing quake.



    The new pointrelease should be out "soon" / "when it's done". This is an id Software style announcement. It can mean anything from XMas to summer 2003.
