Quake3Arena
Is something new happening at the ID company? And how do I play quake without a graphics card?

TTY-Quake is the answer to the second question. The solution is as unbelievable as it sounds. This program makes it possible to play Quake (up until now Quake1 only) on a terminal without any graphical support. The graphics output is substituted with ASCII characters. However, seriously using this program is made almost impossible by the resulting code chaos, which makes detecting the enemy rather difficult. Our acknowledgment goes to Bob Zimbinski who used the library aalib (http://horac.ta.jcu.cz/aa/index.html) to convert the graphical output into characters. Since you really have to see it to be able to believe it, we have included a screenshot.
 
 

Quake3 Arena, Quake3Test

The development of Quake3 is going on. The game is mainly constructed for network games. Fighting against the artificial intelligence is suggested for reflex-training purposes only. Everyone who wants to give it a try should download the test version named Quake3Test from ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/idgames/idstuff/quake3/linux/. This is not a demo but rather a version constructed by ID to test the network possibilities of this game. This should not prevent anyone from logging into one of the many Quake3-servers on the internet and playing it. The most recent version of XQF supports Quake3Arena-servers as well. If you want to be informed regularly on the current Quake 3 status you can find the latest information on the homepage of the game http://www.quake3arena.com/ and on http://www.linuxgames.com
