Host Quake 2?

Postby CyberPitz » Nov 29th, 2005 at 3:38 pm

Who would like to see a quake 2 server hosted? Everybody knows we all love CTF and Lithiam! So what do you say?

I don't like Lithium as much as the old chain grap with laser trip mines.

Q3 > Q2
Q4 < Q3
Q4 = Q3 with graphics and slow rockets.

This idea is nothing more than a novelty. Yes we all played Q2 back in the day and still to some extent remember the twitch reflexes and andrenalin the game brings.

We can't even get the new BF2:SF full and that game is very nice and very new.

I think we'd all get excited, but quickly everyone would remember why they moved on to other games. It was a great game like Tecmo Bowl was great, but it had its day.

IMO this would be a fun event for a LAN party contest or something.

You can :D

Somebody just needs to host the folder of which it's installed, and you're good. Did it at school all the time.

IT doesn't matter if it dies or gets boring fast. It takes 30 minutes to setup, the game is easy to get if you don't have it, plus it takes like 1% cpu usage to run a server on. The min requirements of that game is like 133mhz or something. at least it would get some play, that's more than we can say about the second BF2 server.

i dont think this is supposed to be another permament always full (for the most part) HF gaming server but just some place for a bunch of regs to screw around in at set times. and has been said it really doesnt take up resources so who cares if it sits empty most of the time.

It's "free" t3k because a CD key isn't required. For those that haven't bought it all you need is the folder of the game which is 300-400MB or so, and that's it. No key, no no-cd patches or anything, just need the folder and an IP to connect to

searched google and came up with this:

http://thegang.junik.lv/Downloads/quake2full.rar

not sure if it's the correct file, I didn't bother downloading it myself, but the file size rar'd seems about right.

Quake 2 comes with the Quake 4 special edition too, so I've got it.

I need Quake 3!!!!! I lost my CD, going to see if I can buy another.

But yeah, could we have a Q3 server instead?

I agree with above posts, this would be cool for a lan, but no way we could sustain a server.

Speaking of LAN, when is the next one?

i would, just for the hell of it, but i long since sold my copy of Q2 since i couldn't get the damn thing to work on my computer for some odd reason (Q1 still works, which is really odd). i've only played deathmatch 1v1 over my LAN a couple of times, and it was unfortunately against the less than skilled.
