Quake Live extremely slow and unresponsive ...? (23 comments)
Posted by MailmanMel @ 20:02 CDT, 22 July 2017 - iMsg
I played just a few weeks ago without any issues and for years before that without complications, but now I cannot really even start the game.

After launching Quake Live in Steam I get about 10 seconds of black screen and then 10 seconds of the Quake Live logo, after that I arrive in the main menu, but I cannot do anything really.
Steam FPS counters shows a constant 1 FPS and thus everything is extremely slow. Console opens about 10 seconds after clicking the bind on the keyboard, in-game menu items react in about 20 seconds.

Restarting Steam doesn't help 4 out of 5 times produce the same result, 1 out of 5 the game launches normally, but when I try to connect to a server FPS is back to 1. Every item takes about 5 seconds to load and I am disconnected from the server before the map loading is mid way through.

Restarting doesn't help, neither does reinstalling the game and steam itself. All other things run normally, steam related and others.

Any idea what is going on, has anyone come across something like this before?

What is happening and when, prize pools and whatnot?


Please don't tell me non of that information is still not out even now (I know that QL players list is, but anything else)?

Server limbo - oh where oh where ...? (23 comments)
Posted by MailmanMel @ 09:35 CDT, 18 October 2012 - iMsg
Simple questions - where do the active servers (players playing in them) disappear from the match browser of Quake Live.
Quite often (read all the bloody time) I see a server I'd like to join, especially in less played modes like TDM or whatnot, but when the serverlist refreshes the server is just gone. One can refresh 10x over and over again but it is gone. One can limit the browsing selection to the specific game mode, region etc, but the server is just gone, although the game is still being played.
In about 5 minutes in appears once again with the same players as before, cause they've been playing for the whole duration of the "limbo trip".

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this and how it could be avoided? Pretty often I can only join regular public server because someone in my friends list is playing in it. I can also watch that same server come and go in and out of the limbo while my friend is playing in it.

Amazing footage. One of the greatest things I have seen in a long time.
