QHLAN - everything you need to know
With only a couple days left until we kick off QHLAN in Haninge, Sweden, there are a few updates and some general information that we would like to share with you. Many members of the QuakeWorld community has come together and worked hard to make this event possible and today, we feel that the pieces are falling into place and that we are ready to make a few announcements.

Whether you are an attendee or an online spectator, here follows a list of everything you need to know about QHLAN 2017; notable attendees, a brand new QHLAN wiki, information about monitor/PC rentals, and much much more.
Announcements
First and foremost, we would like to announce the brand new QHLAN wiki! It will work as the main portal for the schedules and tournaments. In there, you will find results from every tournament game, which games are to be broadcasted next and the tournament schedules. It will be updated throughout the entire LAN and will work as the main tool to stay updated. A huge thanks to everyone who contributed to make it such a great tool for finding information!

There has been a few questions concerning payment methods. Atkins from Hazard.nu had this announcement to make:
"Hi everyone!
Im Spearheading Hazard. ive heard there are some questions about payment.
Im going to update the English texts on our site, to make things easier for you guys.

Paymentinfo:
1. Paypal will unfortunatly not be available.
2. Those of you who can pay to our bank account do so. And dont forget to enter your Ticket-ID in the paymenttext (OCR).
3. For the rest of you who live in another country and cannot pay through your bank. You will be able to pay the 250kr cash in the entrance without the extra 50kr fee. Follow these steps:
Go in and register on our website as normal and book a ticket.
Afterwards send an email to jonathan.atkins@hazard.nu with your full name, nick and Ticket-ID.
I will go in and check that you are registered on QH's list and then mark your tickets as payed, so that you can choose your seat!
4. the 50kr membership cost is no longer a thing. This info simply got forgotten to get deleted.

If there are any questions, tag me in the comments and i will answer as soon as i can!

Kind regards
Jonathan Atkins
HazardLAN"

Anyone used these Nvidia Quadro FX 1800's before for QW?

All aboard the HYPE train!

Nice that the rentals are free especially for a LAN that is likely to have a reasonable proportion of foreign players

Regarding FX1800, looking online it seems to be 9600 sort of level so should be OK for QW although obviously might need to use lower maxfps. It has relatively modern drivers at least (only 2 months old): http://www.nvidia.co.uk/download/driverResults.aspx/112838/en-uk
I would hope that being a workstation card an OpenGL game like QW is more likely to run without issues compared to say a DX game, but who knows.
