Running Quake and Quake II
If there are any hideous problems (can't get to the server etc) then first check :
If none of the above applies then you need to email one of us...
- Do you have all the relevant patches / latest version of quake II? If not then you can download them from sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk, look in the mirrors section for the mirror of ftp.cdrom.com - Don't use the site in America because it'll be slow and the c
omputing service will ritually murder you, leaving ravens to feast on your gradually drying eyeballs.
- Are you inside a firewall? (a system for regulating traffic into and out of an area). Some colleges have set up firewalls, and these may potentially block quake traffic, resulting in you not being able to play. This is something to complain to your co
mputer officer about.
- Is your Quake II system set up properly? With some games you may not have the files required to join; there is an option in the Quake II game that allows us (or the server at any rate) to send you these files automagically when you join the game, but
you have to turn this option on in the first place.
For problems involving the server software
Email : Ben Mansell - 'Mr Magoo' with details of exactly what happened, and ideally sample text from the Quake II console.
For problems involving connecting to the server at all
Email : Tim Deegan - 'Tinman', again with as much detail as possible.
For website problems and general suggestions
Email : Tom Oinn - 'Redeye'. I will try to reply to everything but don't take it personally if I don't; the same applies to the others - we've all got other things to do as well you know :-)
...watch the news page for details of anything particularly groovy going down in the immediate future.
