Quake 3 1.32 Point Release! (0 Comments) (link)
 Tuesday, 8-October-2002  11:58:41 (GMT +10) - by Agg

From AusGamers: The eagerly anticipated new Quake 3 Point Release is out, taking Quake 3 to version 1.32 and adding a heap of new features, most significantly PunkBuster support#@!#!! Here are some of the changes:
  • updated network code
  • added mousewheel support in the console
  • rcon: fixed rcon not working on NT/2000/XP workstations that have a long uptime
  • several renderer fixes
Check out the full feature list and grab the Windows update now from AusGamers Files. A Linux update is also available.

This is very exciting news for server admins; this new patch brings Quake 3 into the 21st century with much better administration system (provided through PunkBuster), in addition to the sheer awesomeness of just having a great anti-cheat system. Great to see such dedication from the id team to their product - this version fixes a lot of outstanding problems (such as the rcon on Win32 issue) which have been troubling people for ages.


If you're interested in using Quake 3 for benchmarking, try our OCAU Slayer demo, which really stresses your machine.
