  • Info: CA+ Clan Arena

    Clan Arena is a round based mods involving individuals or teams. It is considered a mod for higher skilled players, but is also a good mod for developing shafting skills.

    The Basics:

    You spawn with 100 health, 200 armor. There is a 5 second countdown before you can fire, allowing you to find where you want to be or get ready to fight. The round ends when only 1 player or team remains; they score a point.

    The Maps:

    This game is almost exclusively played on DM3. At the Max server, the map Q1Edge is periodically played.

    The Servers:

    Max.Essentrix.Net is the most popular by far. For other clan arena servers, please http://www.quake1.net or http://www.gameaholic.com/servers/quake/

    The Files:

    If you play at Max.Essentrix.Net, you will need ProQuake as the server runs in cheat-free mode. This means you will need the cheat-free module.

    Required for Max:

    1. ProQuake (Install Now 0.7 MB, ProQuake home page)

    2. ProQuake Cheat-Free Module (Get It, unzip to c:\quake)

    Optional Files (recommended, but not necessary):

    1. Clan Arena Sounds (Install Now 7 MB, as it is part of rocket arena)

    2. Q1EDGE Map (Get It, by shift+clicking that link, goes in c:\quake\id1\maps)

    3. DM3 Locs (Shift-click this and save to c:\quake\id1\locs)

    3. Q1EDGE Locs (Shift-click this and save to c:\quake\id1\locs)

    Something I've longed to ask. What does the anticheat-module do?

    edit: I'm also noticing that max won't accept vispatched maps.

      All mods are good for developing shaft skills.

        This should be "unzip to your "quake" directory, for example c:\quake" since not everyone will have their quake directory there.

          That's why it's cheat-free.

          (Yellow, someone manually installing files is going to have to know where their Quake folder is. I just wanted to make it clear it was in the base Quake folder, not a subfolder).

              Cheat-free makes sure all your models and maps are the originals based on what the server is using, and makes sure your executable passes a checksum or crc.

              Shmack used to have cheat-free going on 26001.

                  If Slot Zero (or whoever the admin is there) made Shmack 26000 cheat-free, traffic would go plummeting down.

                    Cheat-free limits what client/engine you can use, so that is the main problem with cheat-free because you have to use ProQuake.

                    The only 2 unarguably successful servers I can recall that ran in cheat-free mode were quake.crmod.com and max.essentrix.net

                    I like playing on a cheat-free server when not playing with players I know real well, so that is an excellent fit for max. I prefer to hear the trash talk from players who can largely be expected to be clean.

                    But if I am playing with a bunch of players I know are legit, or it is just some ffa for fun, doesn't matter to me.

                      For the guides version of this post, I changed the second paragraph to explain how scoring works:

                      You spawn with 100 health, 200 armor. There is a 5 second countdown before you can fire, allowing you to find where you want to be or get ready to fight. The round ends when only 1 player or team remains; this player wins the round. Points are given on the scoreboard based on damage, not number for frags. The number of rounds won counts towards winning the match. The scores on the scoreboard are just for show.
