i like this website, but i see less and less reasons to talk here, is it possible to erase all my activity from here, i use mainly twitter to ramble on about my personal feelings, i am not really sure talking here has any more benefit than chatting in game chat.

Reflex Funding Campaign Hits Kickstarter (52 comments)
Posted by nineX @ 23:55 CDT, 19 September 2014 - iMsg
The Kickstarter campaign to fund development of the FPS game Reflex, developed by Turbo Pixel, is now up and running. While not only providing would-be backers and deathmatch fans with a quite a bit of standard information about the upcoming game, the page lists some very interesting previously-unreleased hints about gamemodes, match making and customization features.

In addition, the project is providing some very intriguing pledge reward tiers, ranging from a copy of the game to custom player and weapon models of your choice. Head over to the Reflex Kickstarter page now, and help the project reach it's goal.

Damage numbers and (11 comments)
Posted by garz @ 23:04 CDT, 19 September 2014 - iMsg
Did anyone complain about the damage numbers already? They should be disabled in duel, shouldnt they? And also they should disable the tiered hit sounds in duel. Now that there is this classic mode which is for not-noobs as far as i understood this. So it should be possible to adjust this classic mode without caring for noobs, right? So how about longer weapon respawn times of lets say 10 seconds for 10 minute timelimit. As it was 15 seconds for 15 minutes. Those numbers are magically equal which must make sense, i guess, but i didnt study mathematics.

But if all of the latter isnt done, at least please disable the damage numbers.

Another think is, i cant vote maps on public duel servers anymore. What is that about? I am premium, not pro, so i cant spawn stuff which was always fine for me because there were the public servers. So whats the deal with that. I dont want to play on those player servers because they are already occupied! Most of the time.

Who am i talking to anyway? :D Should i post that in the QL forums or what? I dont know, just disable those damage numbers, you who can do this, you know, i mean you. And i want to be able to vote maps again, plz #2.

Pro-Sub get's banned from Id forum (18 comments)
Posted by Norsak @ 17:33 CDT, 19 September 2014 - iMsg
Well it's official, Id software does not give a rats ass about it's paying customers.

I have a Pro subscription and have been playing Quake since the first edition back in the 90s.
Like many other veteran players, I am extremely disappointed in the recent updates, as they made the game basically un-playable.

Since I can no longer play the game, I started spending more time on the Forum. Where (ever since I emailed support asking for a refund) I was continuously awarded "infractions" for stating opinions which run counter to the direction Id has chosen.

Today I apparently was Banned from the official QL forum (indefinitely no less) without even an accompanying email.

I guess that means that my money is good enough for them, but I'm supposed to keep my criticism and suggestions to myself.

Draw your own conclusions

A suggestion to help grow the community (79 comments)
Posted by J3ck @ 11:17 CDT, 18 September 2014 - iMsg
So I was dueling a little bit yesterday, and now that QL is on Steam new players are jumping in duel servers which is great... except it's not at the same time.

I played this guy who told me he was "so good" with CS:GO and that it was his first QL game. I asked him a few questions like do you know how to time the items etc etc. We were also on Aero, and I was telling him how that map is not really friendly for new players. He said "screw it let's go".

Within 2 min he said "man this game fucking sucks and quit" after calling me a hacker multiple times.

id, steam, bethesda whoever the fuck runs this game now. Here is really what needs to be implemented so ignorant noobs realize they just suck instead of blaming people as hackers..

Add in some kind of anti hack system so these noobs realize we aren't hacking. I feel like the big misconception is that new players don't think there are any of these programs are embedded in QL and therefore everyone just hacks.

The kid just kept going on and on about "how the fuck do you always know where to shoot?!" "How do you always know where I am?!" "This is BS because QL doesn't have VCS(or whatever the hell he was saying).

This community is not going to grow if new players only play once and think that everyone is a hacker. So do something about it!

I logged in 2 days ago, played 3 duels of which I've lost 2 and after the Steam integration I've been banned.
Has this happened to anyone else? If so is there a support e-mail or something (clicking Support on the site does nothing)?

Should I even bother with contacting them?


Thank you everyone for your help. I have contacted them and my issue has been resolved by iD Software in a matter of minutes.

Casual Game modes for reflex (10 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 23:15 CDT, 17 September 2014 - iMsg
Well, it looks like adding your game to steam isn't a guarantee that a large mass of noobs will come(ql), so reflex is going to have to be very proactive if it wants to attract fresh meat.

If you have any original ideas for casual game modes, post them here
And post which existing casual modes/mods you want to see added to reflex

here's my list so far
1) basketball game mode(always wanted to play one in a "quake" game)
2 ) capturestrike with some changes to make it more skillful and less campy
3) action quake 2 mode(never played it, but it looks like it could be a lot of fun in reflex)
4) lithium quake 2 mode(had a blast with this. i think noobs from today would still enjoy it)

From Bliccer - So! Here I am again. That was a short break :/ The reason why I am back is... I found all my old demos from 2004 until now. And I thought: Hey, I'm creating a movie for another person, so why not do yourself a favor and invest some time into your own wasting of time for a decade. Don't get me wrong, not every minute was a waste... but I already wrote something about this last time.

Just registered to share this idea - I was quite astonished, how much time some ladies put into quake and perticularly duel, so I think it would be nice to see them ripping each others skirt in the arena ;-)

No seriously, I think girls would deserve such a tournament and would even donate $10 or so for a price.

The question is how to stop Agent etc. to join the tournament, smashing them and stealing the 1st price? ^^ What do you guys think, would you support such idea?

Quake4 + community made portal / servers (26 comments)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 09:02 CDT, 17 September 2014 - iMsg
Hi guys, im kind of nervous with all the recent changes, normally im a total fanboy who tries to keep playing no matter whatever happens, but some of the latest changes are making my fanboy side transform into a hater, and i dont want to hate.

Quake4 is a damn fine game and has much better gfx than QL which is a good point for possible newcomers. And we know that they wont be releasing crappy patches anytime soon.

Also its been like 6 years since QL started, one of the main reasons why id chose quake3 was that at that time it could run in most PCs, i would say that 6 years later Q4 could run in most PCs too.

id is clearly shitting on the hardcore fanbase with the recent forced changes, the VO being something that totally ruins my experience, instead of playing a hardcore game i feel im babysitting robots, fuck that.

So why not we, the hardcore fans, make something about it? I know it would be a lot of work and we would need to raise some money, the idea being creating a community portal similar to the QL one, were we could add friends, browse servers according to location, etc.

I think it would be worth the effort, mainly because we can be completely sure id wont be able to do shit about it. Q4max development could be resumed to accomodate possible bugfixes etc, new maps could be made without having to pass id software approval, we would have more freedom again!

I know it may sound crazy, but a 1000 miles journey starts with one step.

Don't you just love ordering a new part for your PC? Especially when the particular part is one you can't find locally, and is part of your new machine you were making to stream your upcoming tournament. The only thing that's better than that is when that particular part keeps coming to you D.O.A. and you get send it back with R.M.A. ... twice. Oh man I absolutely "love" when this happens! So..

Anyone want to help stream the N.A. Duelcup event? No casting required.

I am being told my part will be here on Friday (just in time) but I do not want to risk it. I'm looking for someone with a good rig that can stream Quakelive at 60fps(preferred not required) that I can give server information and passwords to. You would be labeled as the official streamer (label is so people don't /kick you). No need to get on camera or say a single word. Since I have been unable to find a caster for three months now my back up plan was to have the stream up on one PC and admin from another. So don't feel like you need to be a personality or announce anything while streaming. Its purely for the game footage =)

Please get in touch on the forum, in game, or irc
#duelcup if you can help me out. Thank you!

Quake Players Wallpapers (10 comments)
Posted by takesix @ 16:21 CDT, 14 September 2014 - iMsg
Sup guys, since i don't play QL after the update I decided to back to GIMP and learn a bit more about graphic design. Since I still love Quake, of course, I decided to start this thread and a series about wallpapers inspired by Top Quake Players.

First one of the series, of course, is COOLLER. You can check my work here:

I really hope you'll live it, but feel free to give any kind of feedback.

Now it's where stuff gets interesting. It is not easy at all to find the raw material to do a good wallpaper, so I'd like to ask you all to post some picture that you would like to be turned into a wallpaper. Please nothe that these have to be HIGH RESOLUTION ,otherwise they're little to no use. Right now I'd love to work on some pictures of Cypher, but I'm open to anything that inspires me. Hope you will help, gl&hf.

QL hud in Q3? (17 comments)
Posted by snomo @ 13:29 CDT, 13 September 2014 - iMsg
I'd love to have the QuakeLive HUD in Q3a, do you guys know how to this?
And maybe also this menu:
But most importantly the hud. I know it's in QL's pak00.pk3 and pak12.pk3 but I've no idea on how to make Q3 load it once I've made a pk3 out of it. What's more is Quake3 doesn't seem to have a UI folder in it's pk3's. TeamArena does but not Q3..
That's the main menu of QuakeLive when it's launched completely offline.

Premium subscription is useless now (11 comments)
Posted by DonReje @ 10:29 CDT, 13 September 2014 - iMsg
After Id just removed all premium servers and only offers Pro/free subscriptions now, how do you feel about having paid for a product you literally cannot use? Well I at least bought 1 year of premium, to be able to vote my own maps... I cannot do that anymore, since there are no such servers anymore.

The appropriate thing to do here, would be to upgrade all existing premium subscribers to pro, instead of making their purchase totally useless?

Or... Shouldn't they at least offer us an upgrade discount? The difference between our current premium subscription and the pro price?

What do you think is fair? And what are you going to do about it? Ignore the fact that you've payed eg. a year in advance for a product that you cannot use and buy Pro? Or .. quit Quake and send a strong signal?

Why put QL on steam after destroying it? (44 comments)
Posted by moto1 @ 09:26 CDT, 13 September 2014 - iMsg
The steam release sounded cool in the beginning, but if you consider how the QL updates have been going it's kind of a joke

To me the whole concept of QL is "if you like Quake 3, play Quake Live", it has updates and support and more features than Q3. For casual players that's fine, but what would casuals think now?

In two months they added loadouts, changed how FFA is played, remove maps, completely change the voice over, no blood still, a new crappy weapon and new ammo boxes.

Why would a casual play a botched/screwed up version of Quake 3? They do all this work and prep for a Steam release, yet in two months they completely changed the direction and roots of Quake Live. Why do that before a release to a giant audience? Wouldn't you want some form of consistency like they had before? Two months ago a casual could play QL and be fine, but now with loadouts and a changed announcer, what nostalgia is there to appreciate? It's not the Quake they used to play, it's some updated-crappy-new version that isn't what they played before at all.

Who's running things at id/QL Project? (41 comments)
Posted by diabz @ 23:21 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg
UPDATE 3: Seems more likely to be only 118.208.* and 118.211.* that are banned.

UPDATE 2: From what I understand, some dunce at Zenimax banned a whole subset of IPs.

I believe the subset is:

inetnum: -
netname: IINET-AU
descr: iiNet Limited

Seems odd though... that they would ban most of Internode's customers from accessing Internode's Quake Live servers?

LMAO... but we know this project doesn't exactly have the sharpest minds on it now does it!

UPDATE: It's looking increasingly like a rogue Zenimax employee has banned half of Australia from Quake Live and the QL forums in an attempt to silence dissent.

It won't fucking work.

How much recompense was paid to Christopher Sabat for his contributions to the game?



I would've done it for NOTHING,





And following that, the money could've been invested in another developer's salary for a couple of months.

Instead we have a "great new announcer" and, let's be honest now, NONE of the people who paid for it (the subscribers) wanted, needed or appreciated it.

Thanks again for the amazing development direction id. Dickheads.

Newb Linux question (27 comments)
Posted by skint @ 16:33 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg
I'm thinking about buying an ODROID-U3 to use as a small, cheap and fast emulator thing to hook upto a TV. Now I'd like to have a nice clean menu for the emulators and came across Emulation Station which looks really nice and can be controller driven.

There are various custom linux distro's available for the ODROID-U3 that I found on a forum thread, the one I'm thinking of initially would be the 'Whisper' release which has controller support and running Lubuntu which seems quite easy to use, used Ubuntu in the past and liked it. They also have a Debian package.

So... looking at the Emulation Station site for Linux they only have a Debian file for download however theres a GitHub repository so would it be possible to install this emulator front end onto a machine running L/Ubuntu or would it only be possible if using a Debian distro and using the .deb package on the download page?

FFA the concept + why is it going wrong? (30 comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 09:56 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg
(Updated on a sporadic basis):
What are your views?

Quite concerning all of the changes that have been happening to FFA, with the QL readiness for steam. With so many threads around these days I wanted to try to get input from FFA Lovers, and hope to get good input / ideas for the balance. Which as a mode of Quake, has been seen to be a great starting point to move into other elements of quake.

FFA is not Duel, it is not TDM, it is not CTF, however great players, come from an initial FFA background, and some do very well coming from the other way round. However, I personally think there is something fundamentally wrong with the way it is being designed at the moment. Included or partial disabled Loadout's, they change everything and the problem starts. (loadouts / map design / map size / spawn positions / focus points / timers / ammo boxes / powerup ratio / armor protection / spawn health etc etc etc.

I was really trying to find out what others thought & what suggested improvements might be better, as currently with the QL version update Sept 11 2014 is by far perfect. It has some improvements, but still I feel something is so wrong.

I have pasted in some of my thoughts, and I will update as I go along, but was interested in hearing what other players thought was wrong or right with it?

Sign petition - We want the original VO (175 comments)
Posted by miSc @ 05:53 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg

In the recent update, the original voice of quake was replaced with a new one. Despite the many changes, this was the one update that stirred an outrage amongst players. The spirit, the soul of quake is gone!

Already, countless of threads have been created by hundreds players on this issue. It's obvious to all, this was a "No no". They crossed the line, and we want either the original back, or something better.

The orginal voice was done by Christian Antkow (xian), and he is considered by many - as the soul of quake.

>>>>>> SIGN THE PETITION ! <<<<<<

I have played quake since the very first release, and had to swallow many changes over the years. But this is where I put my foot down! Sign the petition, let's unite and force idSoftware / Quakelive to either revert the voice or come up with a better alternative.

I'm not known for my criticism of the devs, but this new voice is the worst thing to happen to Quake, ever. All the game play updates, all the changes I can live with. Some I've liked, some not so, but that voice has always been the link back to 1999.

As someone else noted, why fix something that wasn't broken? The original classic voice must be returned to the game ASAP. The new voice sounds terrible in comparison and really detracts from the in-game vibe.

The new announcer voice is completely distracting and is ruining the experience. I really liked the old one. Understand the desire to add new things like revenge and combo, but if that costs the announcer then its not worth it. whoever approved this change should be fired.

Id Software or Bethesda could contract Antkow only to re-do the voices (and to remember old times) instead of contracting a "professional voice actor", one of the things that made me to fall in love with Quake 3 and Quake Live was that kind of "satanic voice"

I urge all who feel as strong about this as me, to spread the word and fight for the cause. I recommend we also try to get in touch with "Xian" himself, and explain to him the issue. For someone who use to be the backbone of quake, he surely must understand the importance of this. FOR gaming, FOR the players, FOR QUAKE!

New Hearth changes, and Team scores VO (3 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 17:50 CDT, 11 September 2014 - iMsg
In the new patch, they say many changes were done to the map, Hearth, like they fixed floating ammo boxes, they added a dropout at GL were they replaced 50 HP bubble by a megahealth, etc.

The thing is, when I play the map in FFA in practice, nothing of it is actually in place...

Am I missing something ?

Also, can someone tell me what is the story with this :

Added Your Team Scores / Enemy Scores in place of Red/Blue unless you're spec.
Removed red/blue scores and rank change (lead taken / lead loss) from Attack & Defend, because these events only occur at the time of other VO playing (flag taken, round over, etc).

I don't see what it does precisely...

PS : If SyncError lurks in here, thanks for the SG damage plum, much better.

EDIT : Ok, problem solved. I had to log with my pro account so that it downloaded everything correctly :).

Since the release of my previous movie - Requiem - back in January 2010, I have been focusing on graduating, which I did last June, and starting my career. Recently, I decided to dust off my old editing skills and try a little project that would not require me to spend nearly as much time on as my former movies back in the day.

It seems that there is no longer a vibrant ET moviemaking community, so I thought I would work on some videos to try and reignite some interest, since Enemy Territory is a game with great moviemaking capabilities. This time around, rather than use Sony Vegas, I decided to edit the footage solely in Adobe After Effects in an effort to try and become more familiar with the software, and I am pleased with the results.

Principium is the first of three retrospective short films, and is generally made up of footage from the very early days of Enemy Territory. In this volume, there are no in-eye frags whatsoever, although there will be in-eye frags in at least one other volume. It is not an ‘aiming’ movie, instead showing some spam frags from ET’s early days.

I have tried to improve and build upon my Camtrace3D skills and make something worth watching for everyone. Each film will be short and sweet and as they are all being worked on at the same time, so hopefully there won’t be too long between the releases of each volume.

Visually I have gone for a grittier, less saturated look in order to make it a little more 'filmic' with relation to World War II, rather than the more glossy and colourful style of some of my previous work.

Sadly, with the loss of ClanBase, there are a lot of demos with great material that will never again see the light of day.

Jump pad pulling down feature ? (18 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 06:02 CDT, 11 September 2014 - iMsg
Hey. Yesterday I fell on a game tip on QL's front page that said you could keep your jump key pressed when you take a jump pad so that it pulls you down quickly when you reach the top of it or something.

I didn't try it because I desactivated the new movement cvars, but did some of you tried it ?

The thing is, I don't think this feature was in the changelog when the last patch came out...

EDIT : Well it seems I've been missing a train or two since I didn't know this feature was implemented a long time ago. At least I have my answer now :).
