"Yes, 10 years are gone since the release of the movie! So I've decided to kinda remaster it and give you the opportunity to watch the vid as it was meant to be seen! Enjoy the higher quality fullscreen version!
This video is about Quake 3 modification called Defrag, where you use different trickjumping skills to pass special maps as fast as possible, its representing our 'Black Shadows' team back in 2005!
40 impressive records performed by [bsh]genosh, [bsh]jackal, [bsh]thrasher, [bsh]viper.
Edited and directed by me.
Well-synced soundtrack consists of 8 audio tracks of misc styles.
This video brought me 2 awards in moviemaking contests (1st and 3rd prizes).
A lot of these demos are not the worlds best results anymore, well, so many years passed, but still you may find enjoyable watching this piece of art!
The best DeFRaG movie from russian community of all time. Many players have joined DeFRaG after watching this video, including the currently best vq3 runners in the world - Dex and Strangeland.
I hope the new generation of quakers will feel the spirit of the old school and the elders will recall the past!

It doesn't hassle me much since I use http://qlmm.gameboni.com/ but sometimes I can make a good use off original interface but I'm unable to. It just won't show any server regardless of what game type I choose or location or any other parameter. It's been like that for over a month and like I said I'm fine with gameboni but you it doesn't support other game types.

Needed to give my pc a wipe as my windows 7 install had been on there for several years and was getting bloated, so figured i would do the ugprade to windows 10 first before rolling back to 7 later (that way you have taken MS up on the free upgrade and can reinstall win10 on this machine for life if i wanted to later on).
Once i had sorted the win10 upgrade, I did a fresh install so I could just make an image of it to install later if I wanted to - and figured would trying QL in windows 10.
The good news, my mouse sense etc all felt the same and the game felt great.
The bad news, on my 1920x1080 120hz LG monitor, GPU scaling seems to be broken, and I now have black bars each side of my 1024x768 res ql window. I used to use same config on win7, except the GPU scaling would blow the window up to fit the monitor - worked for me, was comftable with it after several years of playing like this.
TL:DR - gpu scaling seems fkd in win10, with QL - does anyone have any ideas?
Format: Double Elimination.
Winner Bracket is best of three, Loser Bracket is best of one. Maps: bdm3, dp4, dp5, thct7, thcdm13. Picking:Bo1: drop, drop, drop, drop, pick. Bo3: pick, pick, drop, drop, pick. Bo5 Final: The player from Winner's Bracket will decide the first map, loser picks from then onwards. All 5 maps are played. Use !coinflip in the IRC channel to decide who drops/picks first.
After a relatively successful first season, we decided to continue the league. Now, the league will be held not only on Moscow servers that enables all the European teams, which wanted, but could not take part because of the large Moscow server pings, to participate in the competition.
All the rules and game schedule will be published later, but at this time we open the registration instructions. To register, you should write to the irc-channel #carnage !! (yes, with two !!), the team name and lineup to me (nixon). Each team can register up to 7 members (4 main players and 3 substitutes). And, of course, a player registered for a certain team cannot take part in the game for another team.
Hello people from ESR! Last night the finals from the Flagmaggedon took place between gHs and ZR, since was a CTF quick cup just for fun the organization did not make available a international coverage but I post the VOD so you can enjoy Southamerican CTF because your CTF is nothink on lan.
To give you some info about the tournament: the cup was played through the week late at night in local time and a total of 12 teams sign up. All teams from Chile. Same maplist as the QCON.
In the VOD first you will find the match for the 3rd place between mDh vs uz and later the final between gHs vs zr.
So... maybe you did know about it, maybe didn't. Anyway I want to share it with you guys. I've decrypted runes on Ragnarok map made by cityy and frs.
I don't know which one was responsible for runes, but he wrote it upside-down and some of sentence's are written from the end.
I still don't get it how to add image's so i will just paste links to it.

Can anyone help me out with this. I recently decided to change to steam, using the same config (accel m_cpi etc - m_cpi 1800 sens 10 accel 0.02)
But the sens in steam is 10x higher than the standalone version. Not just the sens, the accel is much more pronounced as well. So even if I lower the sens to 3 or 4, I have to lower the accel to something like 0.001 to get it to feel similar.
Anybody know about this? thx
using windows 10 and a razer aby 2014. default windows drivers.

i'm using in_mouse "1" in QL same as qauake3 command.
because mouse is high dpi so i'm using only control of windows pointer speed. (when i high sensi in q3 3/11. low sensi in q3 8/11)
in_mouse "1" and "-1" you know defenitly different feeling.
but i think it dosen't work in QL. if i set sensitivity 4, no accel and windows pointer speed 3/11 or 8/11 ---> only works sensitivity 4 in QL( it is not slow or high)
i tried use in_mouse "-1" it works fine with windows pointer speed. but "-1" option i dont want it. i just want to use "1" in QL with windows pointer speed freely. (in_mouse "2" is dosen't work too).
The TDM HoQ Fall 2015 Season will be starting in October, while the sign-ups should open around the 27th of September for two weeks.
A new design for the website is under way and will settle the definite agenda for the league. The rules has been reviewed : there is now only one wildcard per team. The map pool almost remains the same : Deep Inside, Dreadful Place, Grim Dungeons, Limbus, Purgatory, Ragnarok, Tornado (Deep Inside now replaces Hidden Fortress).
Also, you can now donate for the league. This should help to build some prize money for the competition and to attract / motivate more teams to sign up!
AND HOLY MOTHER FUCKIN' SHIT!
I was like "NAH MAN, IT WON'T WORK".
I have Athlon 64 X2 4200+, fuckin ancient technology!
But I got GeForce GTX 750ti and enough room in my tower.
I was like "NAH MAN, I BET THE MENUS ON THEIR OWN WILL BE UNPLAYABLE".
BUT I GOT OVER 100 FPS, DUUUUDE!
THOSE PARTICLE EFFECTS!
THE FEELING OF GUNS IS GOOOOD.
THE MOVEMENT FEELS SOLID AS FUCK.
So yeah, as you already know I'm currently playing with the razer abyssus 2014 at 1800dpi 500hz plug&play sensitivity 1 ingame (23.09cm/360°). Actually it's a great mouse, I like pretty much everything about it, the shape is good for my grip style, it's light, it's small, build quality is ok, sensor works well (been playing with abyssus sensor for 4+ years now I guess), and finally I quite like the overall look of the mouse.
It's a very "basic" mouse that works very well in my case.
Basically now when I play (lol)CA only a few people can outshaft me (maybe 1, 2 or 3 player(s) out of the rest of the CA playerbase), so yeah, I'm actually very satisfied by the results I got from playing with the abyssus 2k14 and the same config (that I altered only slightly during these last months) for months/year(s). I think I'm in a good dynamic when it comes to global combat skills. Yes, ofc, I'm not rapha nor toxjq nor cooller nor cypher, but yet, my goal was to get the best LG in europe @ CA. I'm actually now very close to it, still need some practice again but I think that I'll be done with CA thunderstruck probably the next couple of months, and move on to something else like duel (I started playing a bit of duel lately with some friends that are not so skilled at it, just like me in fact, so that we can have even matches and ofc... fun playing it :)).
Basically I'm starting to get really comfortable with my current settings/setup and I'm quite happy about my overall combat skills, only thing I don't like are my rockets, I get destroyed in RL vs RL fights against any good/decent RL player. But it's not that big of a deal since many times I can rely on my +back shaft :D and my goal wasn't to have the best rockets anyways.
So yeah, I'm asking you, is it really worth it to buy and try the zowie ZA13 at 1600dpi sens 1.125 ingame (which gives exactly 23.09cm just like with 1800dpi sens 1 @abyssus), considering that I'm currently in a pretty good momentum when it comes to my maximum "reach" (I think now that with my current setup/config I'm at 95+% of my potential). I mean now if I continue playing with the abyssus and all I will reach my maximum potential and then not really improve anymore (just only very slightly if I keep playing everyday for months and months).
I'm asking you that because in theory/on paper, the ZA13 got a better sensor (3310) than the one in the aby 2k14 (s3888), I mean some people said it's a bit more accurate in some situations. Also build quality is zowie so should feel a bit more solid than my current razer (but like I said there's actually nothing wrong with the aby2k14 build quality, it's ok really). So yeah, if I ever buy the ZA13 it would be for its sensor mainly, and also the shape in which I'm pretty curious to see how it works with fingertip grip (my grip style).
I'm also at the same time a bit worried of the sides buttons on the ZA13, will it make it uncomfortable to hold with my fingertip grip ?
But the biggest question remains this one : If I ever try the ZA13 and it suits me well, If I start to practice again with it for some months, will my LG be even better ? Will I get slightly better aim than with the aby 2k14 ? Or 3310 is just marketing bullshit and s3888 is already good enough as it is ?
Basically, will I play better in the long term compared to with my abyssus ?

Hi guys, I figured I may as well post this, since it was a good day's work that would go to waste otherwise.
Ages ago, CaptainTaichou and I made a Perl/bash script that allows you to emulate the hilarious and ever-witty bot-chatter of the Quake3 bot Klesk ingame in Quakelive.
Reception was, as you can imagine, quite mixed. The older veteran players loved it and through it was absolutely hilarious, the younger noobs hated it and tried in vain to block and kick my kIesk account from games. Silly people.
Anyway, since we all stopped playing Quake ages ago, I figured I'd put it up on github so other people can enjoy it, or potentially adapt it to their own needs, since at it's core it's a rather capable log parsing tool.
Here it is for you to enjoy.
The QL Team are PUSSIES
Hi all, MichaelJackson here.
Because I've constantly called out id Software for their disrespect of the initial fanbase and the original game, while announcing that I was fed up with their nonsense and that other players shouldn't tolerate it, turns out that they now have a fetish for banning me off of their forums, because they do not like that there exists someone who's not going to stand for their crap.
Well, unfortunately for them, I still use the forums about every other day under countless different names, even after they IP banned me (I use a browser called Tor that disguises my IP address, allowing me to bypass bans). I wanted to take the time out to say to you id Software, that your bans are essentially pointless and you'll never get rid of me, as I'll just keep creating new accounts. When a game developer makes a terrible decision, I am going to call them out for it. No ban is going to stop me.
Face reality, you've made some disastrous choices and you know how it destroyed the game on a competitive level, and you were completely unwilling to fix it. And at the same time, you were unwilling to hear the criticism and the outrage. That's not how it works, id. And if you do anything like this again, the pattern will only repeat. I will continue to call you out on your own website.
On the positive side of things, it looks like we (mostly) won the battle. One of my sources has confirmed that the next update will probably see the removal of loadouts by default. Although unified ammo boxes and item timers will remain, at least the one main thing that completely destroyed this former masterpiece of a game is gone. Now we should continue the fight, and maybe we'll also say goodbye to the other trash as well.
My next battle will be DOOM 4: turns out they're adding loadouts, progression, and a 2-weapon limit to multiplayer. I may not be able to severely damage its sales, but I may be able to help ensure a faster death, if I gather enough supporters. I will only halt the plan if at least half the default servers are without these flaws. Lemme know if you want to take part.
Anyway, I'll continue to post as always. Feel free to ban this account id, seeing as I can simply make another.
Most important changes:
- Actual Weapon models
- Tons of assets for mapmakers
- Editor UI is now scriptable as well, and features a nice content browser for quickly inserting assets etc.
- Lots of other technical changes
What can be done:

So we are seeing servers drop like flyes. A ton of people now can't play because the nearest servers are too high latency. Those people are stuck with a pro subscription that's useless, myself included. My questions are:
What's the point of having a pro subscription on the next update? What are the extra features you get over the non subscribers if the servers will be hosted by the community and you can't spawn them anymore?
In what way are they going to screw up non-subscribers then?
Will a subscription model even exist?
I usually filter servers by country but today decided to look at the global status of QL and realized there are tons of servers missing. The one I missed the most is Paris based servers, but now, tons on my vincinity are dissapearing as well. Did some research and apparently a lot of people is complaining about this, and it seems the business that hosted them are going bankrupt.
(@sponge) toronto, spain, chicago, and sydney exist no more due to out of business stuff.
It seems more and more servers are dissapearing at an alarming rate. Im assuming this is expected due the fact QL will go community based again after the next update. My question is: What role will the pro subscription have on the next update if you can't spawn servers? what differentiates you from standard that will make it worth paying?
Right now, for me the pro subscription is useless. All of the "in my vincinity" servers are gone, I can't play with a stable ping. What's the point? Will I get a refund for this?
I hope the community spawns lots of servers worldwide, because right now its looking pretty bad, less servers daily.
Haven't heard a single thing about this on any news channels, haven't heard of any riots or protests, etc. Where are all these, "all life matters" nit-wits that couldn't wait to get in front of a camera or go on record in response to all these previous shootings. Oh yeah, the kid was white. I guess it's only a noble cause if it's a minority, my bad.
So yeah, it's exactly the same config except that it's much more clean now :).
If you want to (re)download it, go to my ESR profile (Config: Available) and you also have a screenshot in my profile bio.
In order to make it work properly you have to reset to default your quakelive settings by going to "account settings". /!\ If you don't do that and simply load my config over your own config or any other player's config, my config will be messed up pretty much (will probably be mix between the current config you're using and my config :D), because you need the quakelive default settings for it to work properly /!\. Also try to remove qzconfig and repconfig in your baseq3 folder.
HAVE FUN ;)

You've probably heard about the Adderall drama that was started by pro CS player Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen when he openly admitted that all the members of his team ( Cloud9) were using this stimulant drug during the ESL One Katowice tournament.
Although none of the team members have been punished, mainly because the Electronic Sports League couldn't prove they actually took amphetamines, Anna Rozwandowicz, ESL's Head of Communication, announced a program in partnership with NADA and WADA (respectively German and worldwide anti-doping agencies) to help create an anti-PED (Performance Enhancing Drugs) policy that is "fair, feasible and conclusive while also respecting the privacy of players".
The official rules and guidelines will be updated with the new measures, meanwhile the first saliva tests will randomly take place in ESL Cologne next week-end, and will be extended to all competitions organized, hosted or produced by ESL (Intel Extreme Masters, ESL One, ESEA Pro League, etc.).
As eSports continue to grow in visibility and popularity, ESL, one of the oldest and largest organization, wants to pave the way to a new integrity standard in order to protect the players and the sport as a whole. Will this become the new norm for every eSport organisation? If professionnal gamers want the same recognition as traditional sport athletes, it will certainly have to.

Join the play queue by using the IRC bot in #arenafps.fc @ Quakenet. (try to use a nickname the exact same as, or at least similar to your in-game username).
You may sign-up as many times as you like, so long as the KOTH bot is active.
Games will be 5 mins long and played on the ArenaFPS Duel server (22.214.171.124:25788).
When its your turn to play, you will be highlighted in IRC (if you aren't already on the server). Failure to respond will result in you being skipped and moved to the end of the queue.
The first two players will do a coin toss with an admin, the winner will pick the first map. When a king has been determined, only the challengers will be allowed to pick a map.
Some interesting points:
- md and avg stopped practising with 102 before quakecon after 102 didnt show up to practises repeatedly so the last weeks leading up to the event 102 mainly practised by playing internal 2v2 games
- Hox (russian defragger) created videos of their rival teams showing all 4 povs simultaneously so they could analyse their game.
- 102 purposefully didn't hit mercy limit in their first tdm games to get easier opponents early on
- they won pillbox against avengers by scoring an early cap and then defending with 4 people for 14 minutes (game wasn't streamed but was very exciting apparently)
- All the players feel sick of quake now and are taking a break

I made some aliases and I want to save time by typing the first letter and then pressing tab to have the alias name automatically writen so I only have to press enter, the thing is they don't show up when I tab. They do work tho if I type them manually and all show up when I use the alias command so they are there.
Why aren't they working with the tab autocomplete thing?
After a very long time of inactivity with interviews, Esportactu is back with an encounter with zanZan, the mysterious player competing in almost all the duel competitions for more than a year and a half now. Even though she didn't win any competition yet, she was able to perform pretty well against most of the top players in Europe, and even took maps from opponents such as Cypher, k1llsen or fazz according to QLRanks.
In this interview, we discussed her overall game approach, her background as a player, the way she sees her own style, the community, and various other questions concerning duel, Aerowalk, etc. As usual, the main idea is to give the community a bit more background about a sub-top player which is part of the competiting scene for a long time while remaining in the dark.
You will also find zanZan's gear informations and her config to download in the beginning of the interview. Also, keep your penises in your pants, as there is no picture included :).
Here is an extract of the interview:
Esportactu : You have been playing a lot of games, especially Clan Arena (4,4k) and duels (9,3k). What did you like in these two modes that made you play that much ? Was duel a natural choice for you ?
zanZan : Reason to CA is mainly because I can play with music and not care, but I also tend to hit ridiculous shots in that mode making it quite fun to play. As for duel I have no idea why I am even trying. My patience is too great, and my nerves are catastrophic, so no, it was never natural. [...]
I have had a hard time finding the time to make these kind of interviews for a couple of months now but I think I will be able to provide some content in the near future. Actually, back in the end of 2014, I wanted to interview all important Belarussian players apart from Cypher, that's to say Cyber, madball, clawz, and slimk (at the time he was still playing, and just had a fantasic game vs Cyber on Aerowalk). I sent questions to Cyber a long time ago, but he is quite reluctant to answer it, not sure people would care, etc. The thing is, I'd like to have his answers to prepare the other ones interviews. So, if you are in contact with Cyber, please encourage him to send me his answers because I'm sure his interview will be good and I want to get in touch with others afterwards. Play more Quake !

Someone just released a motion picture with a deep compelling storyline. It has many symbolic meanings and tries to promote traditional family oriented life. It also represents a struggle of the lower class (starring Robotnik)
This is art is its most purest, unadulterated form.
The shape-shifting blue guy represents humanity - the phone symbolizes the will to live on and never give up on your dreams and the future we live in without actual privacy. The message is clear but can be interpreted in various ways.
It's been a while since such a captivating motion picture was released.
Please watch full screen for maximum pleasure.

Hey, Just wanted to share some clips and my channel to yall. been editing more lately and about to release a Frag Movie in a few. Having fun with this youtube stuff lol. Subby dub dub if you want. Ganna be some cool stuff in the near future :p
I got my server all setup, and the auto-download for clients works.
The only problem is that the client can only download at a maximum of around 10-15K/sec !! I have the excessive+ mod installed and one of the files is around 13 MBs large. Just that one file will take 20 minutes to download.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this? A cvar maybe, or a patch, or something? I tried increasing the sv_maxrate but no change in speed.... Please help!
Since takasta and dacheng don't sell oem wmo's anymore i bought 2 from 2 different guys and they both work great but the buttons click when i lift and tap the mouse. Is there any guide online to fix this?

Since the new QL maps have ruined it for anyone that plays with the classic r_mapoverbrightbits 5 + r_vertexlightning 1 configuration because they look way too bright and you are forced to play with the cap value depending on the map, im asking: Can you somehow script it in a way so you dont have to play with the overbrightbitscap value going from 250 to 170 to 200... etc to fit your prefered config for each map? because it's incredibly annoying.
Does anyone happen to know anything about the Steam version of Quake 3: team Arena? Combatibility wise (In terms of setting up a dedicated Server).
- Can you setup a dedicated server with the steam version?
- Can non-steam players connect to steam players?
- Anything I should know before buying Quake 3 from steam, if I am planning on using it for a dedicated server?
- Any other relevant advice?
