It is 2014 and Quakeworld players everywhere are still playing with pings much higher than they need to. With some simple configuration changes and the use of ezQuake+qwfwd to automatically find better routes, you can lower your ping by up to 50ms.

I have written the definitive guide to using the best-route functionality of ezQuake+qwfwd which you can read on my blog: How to use qwfwd to improve your ping

hifi and empezar have been working hard on a new QuakeWorld modification for the past few weeks, and development has come to a stage where the mod needs to be thoroughly tested for bugs. Classic Fortress is basically Team Fortress with a lot of code rewrites, bug fixes and general improvements that make the experience more enjoyable and user friendly. The aim of the project is to provide a complete experience from client to server, much like nQuake. But since ezQuake is not very user friendly when it comes to configuration, a Classic Fortress client has been developed on top of ezQuake 3.0 sources that is solely meant to be used for Classic Fortress games.

It is therefore strongly recommended you use the client package when playing Classic Fortress due to it having several features built-in that makes configuration easier (menu system custom made for Classic Fortress and automatic sbar resizing, to name a few).

Download the client package from ClassicFortress.net. The download is 16 mb.

Read more about Classic Fortress on the Classic Fortress wiki.

If you are interested in helping out with beta testing, join the channel #classicfortress.

The public beta server address is fnu.nu:27500.

Please use the Classic Fortress client to beta test, as the team wants the whole package to be tested.

A new QuakeWorld race tournament has been announced by BogoJoker. He has compiled a list of the race world records on the most common QuakeWorld maps, and his intention with this tournament is to squeeze some more slack out of them where possible. As an extra incentive for all racers out there, there is a prize of $100, $50 and $25 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively. The tournament starts today and runs until 13th July, so you have about a month to polish your personal records and hand them in!
