Quake III Fortress Xtreme has been finally released! Are you tired of newer games that look great, but do not perform as expected? Are you wanting to play a great "Old Shcool" shooter that may bring back some memories? Well, look no further! The staff of PlanetTFX.com has fixed and modded the original Q3F1H to bring this type of gameplay back to life again!
"First impressions on q3fx : The additional maps are definitely a nice touch... great choices too...border, sq1, ....the minor fixes ...make a big difference genius idea to include a readme to easily customize one's gren timers
I was a fan of q3f 1h (even though i only played it after q3f2.x had been released, hence, nobody played q31h)" Said [dk]decky a member of Planet TFX.
There are 2 servers available to play Q3FX on: #Plusnet Q3FX and Slashquit Q3FX.. Here is what you need to get fragging "Old School".............Quake III
>Arena (A fresh install is highly recommended)
>Quake III Arena 1.32 update (Download HERE)
>Q3FX 1.0 Full (Download HERE)
After install, please go to the directory (C:\Program Files\Quake III Arena\q3f) and find the icon to right-click and send to desktop and name it Q3FX. Also read the "Grenade Timers" and "Comms" to help enhance gameplay.
Start Q3FX from the icon you set or from the "Mods" section in Quake III Arena. Be sure to set your player name, bind keys for "grenades", "Special", "HE charge menu", etc. The "in-game" browser will show multiple Quake Games even when filtered, so I recommend to get the free game browser called "All Seeing Eye" (Download Free Here)
You can find Q3FX using the All Seeing Eye by selecting "Quake 3 Arena" and hitting the "Refresh" button. Open all folders under Quake 3 Arena named "Other" and select the last folder named "Other". Look for #Plusnet Q3FX server (Demon servers are running an older version and you will not be able to connect).
To connect without All Seeing Eye, simply start Q3FX, and pull down the console by hitting the "tilde" key next to the (1) on your keyboard that looks like this....... ~ Type this.................
/connect 188.8.131.52 then hit "Enter"
Or start Q3FX, go to "Multiplayer" then "Specify" and type the IP there and the port should be 27960.
