Quake 4 Update And Running It On UbuntuAugust 10, 2006
Apparently I was still playing Quake 4 1.2 while there was a 1.3 update released the 25th of July. This kind of explains why so few people were online lately :).
It looks like a pretty big update. It contains: - Gameplay tweaks like weapon balancing. - Some performance improvements. - A completely new gametype (Deadzone). - A new weapon (Napalm Launcher). - 8 new maps. - 4 revised maps (to include Deadzone support). - A buy mode server option (like Counterstrike has).
Running it on Ubuntu works like a charm. There is a little problem with the sound however. It kind of stutters and sounds horrible. This can be fixed by starting the game with the '+set s_driver oss' command line directive (this can also be set in a config file off course).
