  • QW ? vs freequake

    So a question for quakeworld users...isn't there a auto download
    feature for maps and pak files that you don't have to get on a server?

    So what happens if you ONLY have shareware quake? Does it download
    the full quake pak files?

    Hmmm...opens up a can of worms!

    Some QW servers are configured to download stuff from within a pak file. I discovered that long ago, I'd experiment and see which servers would download me DM6 if I didn't have it present, etc. Some do, some don't.

    It is usually more convenient to have the map downloads prepackaged, the QW map download feature does not use compression so a 3 MB on-the-server map download is much larger than it's size in a zip.

    I hope it is ok if I answered the question and not one of the regular Quakeworld players. - 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 ...
