  • Info: Rocket Arena

    Note: There is an excellent Rocket Arena map reference at

    http://www.runequake.com/maps/ra/



    Rocket Arena is a 1 on 1 style, round based game played on custom rocket arena maps.

    The Basics:

    You spawn with 100 health, 200 armor. You have a considerable, but limited amount of ammo. You face an opponent one at time, the victor plays the next opponents and the loser steps to the back of the line.

    Required Files:

    Rocket Arena Maps (Install Now 7 MB)

    Commands:

    Type the name of the map in the console to initiate a vote for anyother map.

    The Servers:

    quake.shmack.net:26001 is the primary rocket arena server; check http://www.quake1.net for other servers if needed.
    Quakeone.com - Being exactly one-half good and one-half evil has advantages. When a portal opens to the antimatter universe, my opposite is just me with a goatee.

    So while you guys all have to fight your anti-matter counterparts, me and my evil twin will be drinking a beer laughing at you guys ...

    This link is broken.

    I'm also looking for a place to download the RA1 server (qwprogs.dat and what not) for LAN play.

        The original RocketArena site is also gone, the original RocketArena mod was farena12.zip
        Slot runs runs his own version of RA, a sub-mod of his RuneQuake mod. (plays identical to original RA,except does not employ "Waiting" rooms) The original RA is outdated to hell and back,and contains a hidden map with nudie pics in the waiting area, called gearpron8.bsp IIRC, something like that.

        woop's, I have more than just the old RA mod archive file. I'll upload and post links here shortly for you.

        Link 1 ; https://anonfiles.com/file/6447224a2...a04e6b70888cd7 , Original farena12.zip <- maps in Pak form
        Link 2 ; https://anonfiles.com/file/418e216be...ca39d778558428 , rocket-arena-maps-r2.exe (its in a rar archive) <- maps via Bakers EZ Installers
        Link 3 ; https://anonfiles.com/file/83813479f...9fc8edfceec96b , Original fasrv12.zip <- has your qwprogs.dat

        ps : found everything you need on my hard drive haha, oof. That should be everything you requested!

          That's all I needed to get a 5 player LAN going, thank you. The site being gone is a pain and farena12 is about as unintuitive as things can get, I wouldn't have found it.

          Well, one way or another it's good to get these files up where people can access them, thank you very much.

            Not a problem! I however did find you that qwprogs.dat as you requested, if you ever want to play some friendly RA games hit me up. We all play at quake.shmack.net:26001 , the really only viable RA server online now days.

            If you wish to play nostalgic RA ( complete with waiting rooms), I think ClanHDz still runs one at ra.clanhdz.com ,I keep forgetting about that server...
