etc, enjoy:)Nice Little Bits of Info. Updated Early 17/11/99. Well the game is now out and at last I have stopped playing for a couple of hours. I'm bloody wrecked. I was off work, sick for the last 2 days and I know what your thinking, I took it off just because the Quake3 Demo was released. Well you couldn't be more wrong :)(Sly Grin). Anyway later on tonight or early tomorrow you can read my full report about the game but for now to keep you guy happy heres some nice little bits of info I picked up on my travels FPS Problems Updated 17/11/99. Well I've seen many complaints in the last number of days about the new Demo utilizing the CPU alot more than in 1.08, thus in turn causing Lowerend Pc to suffer from Low FPS. I can second that. I have seen quake3demo running on a PII 300Mhz with a Voodoo2 and its almost unplayable. Later on tonight, were going to try and resolve this by getting the latest Gl drivers, but even so there has been a serious drop in FPS from 1.08Test, Hmm. So on my travels I came accross an update from John Carmack. In it he included several small changes that can be made to inprove your FPS. Hope these help you a little.
A set of go-fast-and-look-ugly options:
Remember if you don't like the settings after changing to the above just Reset to defaults. :)Teamplay With Bots. Updated 17/11/99. Earth Worm Jim, in my opinion one of the best writers on the irish Quake seen at the moment has updated his site, ChallengeIE, its well worth a gander, some excellent updates. He did a great update about Team play with Bots. I haven't really tried these out yet but it looks interesting. Heres what EWJ has to say.
Start up a game with Grunt and Ranger on your team and practice with these commands.
/say_team I am the leader -You are now in control of your bots.
/say_team grunt follow me - Grunt now follows you wherever you go.
/say_team ranger camp the rl - Ranger will now go to the rocket launcher and defend it.
/say_team grunt dismiss -Grunt will now stop following you and roam freely.
/say_team grunt patrol from ra to rg - Grunt will now patrol from the red armor to the rocket launcher.
/say_team ranger report - Ranger will tell you that he is camping the rocket launcher.
/say_team ranger follow grunt -Ranger will now patrol with Grunt.
Actions can be given to multiple bots by including (and | , ) between the bots you want to command. For example:
/say_team grunt and ranger camp here
/say_team grunt, ranger camp here
/say_team grunt and ranger follow me
General Group Commands
/say_team everyone follow me
/say_team everybody follow me
/say_team everyone camp here
** Note: You can not give the message /say_team everyone follow grunt because Grunt will try and follow himself.
The basic bot commands:
grunt (report | what are you doing?)
grunt (follow | accompany | cover | go with) ranger
grunt (follow | accompany) ranger for (number) (seconds | minutes)
grunt (go to | go get) (item | weapon)
grunt (patrol) from (item | weapon) to (item | weapon) for (number) (seconds | minutes)

grunt (dismissed | dismiss | stop action |
grunt who is (the leader | team leader)
grunt is not (the leader | team leader)
I (quit | stop) being (the leader | team leader)
Squads and Sub teams
You can form squads within your team. Commanding the entire squad by addressing them with the squad name you indicate.
An example of squad forming.
/say_team grunt and ranger are in squad beta - Grunt and Ranger are now in the squad called beta
/say_team beta follow me - Grunt and Ranger will follow you.
/say_team grunt leave your squad -Grunt leaves squad beta
grunt (and | ,) Ranger are in (team | squad) alpha
grunt (and | ,) Ranger (join | create) (team | squad) alpha
grunt leave your (team | squad)
ranger join (team | squad) alpha
Giving your bots commands in CTF is very important. One thing to remember is letting a bot become the leader and listening to them is sometimes the best strategy.
All the above commands work in CTF Plus
grunt (get | capture) the (red | blue | enemy) flag
grunt (get | capture) (red | blue |enemy) flag
grunt (defend | guard | camp) the base <-friendly flag
If a bot is the team leader and you forgot what you have been ordered to do then just type one of the following and the leader will tell you.
For these you do not need to address the leader directly.
/say_team what is my command
/say_team what should I do
/say_team what am I supposed to do
/say_team what is my job
Some examples for CTF:
/say_team I am the leader
/say_team grunt defend the base
/say_team ranger capture the enemy flag
