The last couple of days ezQuake has hit a limit with regards to data saved when building up the ping tree that is used when finding the best routes to servers using QWFWD proxies, causing the client to crash. The thing that triggered this was additional proxies being set up lately. The symptom of the problem is that ezQuake crashes and shows the error "EX_Browser_pathfind: max neighbours count reached" when building the ping tree, something that's done automatically at client start for many people as it's a feature enabled by default (at least in the popular nQuake package).

To circumvent this you can disable the find-best-route feature for now:
  • Set sb_findroutes 0 in ezquake/configs/config.cfg
  • Set sb_listcache 0 in ezquake/configs/config.cfg
  • Rename proxies_data to proxies_data.bak (located in This PC > Documents > ezQuake on Windows)

The long term solution is a fix in the client and for people to upgrade, however to keep the fragging going now the above method can be used.

The QW community is divided. There are those that are masculine and have what it takes to play the best qw maps ever made (dm2, dm4, dm6, etc) and then there are those who don't because they don't have minerals where they need them and the maps are just too hard or too unbalanced or too unfair...

What if someone made some very tiny tweaks to the masculine maps to make them less painful without ruining the flow of the game? Will the QW purists be outraged? Will the kenya noobs rejoice? It is time to find ouit.

3.2 is finally finished. Most development effort in recent years has gone into the new renderer so there's relatively few changes here, just wanted to get this finished off so the changes could be integrated into 3.5.
