*UPDATE* According to a posting on the Quake3World.com message boards, the following message was left by an id employee:
Please take down your mirror for the Quake 4 1.1 beta and/or final. There is a problem with the widescreen functionality that may harm a user's monitor. We are working on a re-release and will make it available as soon as possible. Please advise your viewers that may be using the current 1.1 beta and/or final to NOT enable widescreen or disable widescreen if they are currently using it.
The download links and mirrors will stay, but be advised of the current situation. Links will switch to the updated version once this is fixed.
www.idsoftware.com along with the amazing response and help from their new employee SyncError, have finally released the official Quake 4 1.1 Final Patch. Within this patch comes countless and countless bug fixes, forcemodels, brightskins, 4 new maps, increased performance, and much more.
The QUAKE 4 1.1 Point Release update is now available. This highly anticipated patch addresses a number of issues throughout both single and multiplayer, with a heavy and attentive focus on improving the multiplayer experience. Such improvements include: a fixed pure server system, a new AddonPak autodownloading system, voice chat in multiplayer, a forcemodel option, brightskins, smooth stairjumping, a one-minute warning for tournament matches, Hyper-Threading Technology and Dual Core support as well as a ton of multiplayer specific fixes which have been requested by the community and discovered during our own gameplay.
This update also includes 4 new professionally made multiplayer maps - free for your fragging pleasure. There are 2 new DM maps and 2 new CTF maps, including a CTF version of the popular "The Edge" map. In addition to these 4 maps, we've also included the free QUAKEMAS map pack that we released in December. Please see below for screenshots of the new maps.
This update will bring any previous version of the game completely up to date, however it will affect pure server and protocol consistency. Therefore, players who update to 1.1 will only be able to play multiplayer against other 1.1 users, and save games and demos created on previous versions of the game will not be compatible with the 1.1 update.
