The Quake 4 1.4 Beta patch is now available for download. This update includes a host of features such as: refined hitboxes, optimized sound and network code, configurable fps caps, weapon balancing, server direct autodownloading, and addonpak fixes, to name only a few. We are especially excited to introduce our new spectator support to Quake 4 - Q4TV. The majority of our additions have been included thanks to direct community feedback. Your continued feedback on this beta will be greatly appreciated.

We hope everyone enjoys the new content, features and fixes! For a more complete list of changes, please see the README.

The 1.4 beta update affects pure server and protocol consistency. Therefore, players who update to 1.4 beta from ANY previous version will only be able to connect and play against other 1.4 beta users. Save games and demos created on any previous version of the game will not be compatible with the 1.4 beta update.

Feature Overview:

- Q4TV - Spectator Television
- Improved Hitboxes
- Serverside Adjustable Tick Rate
- Improved Sound
- Improved Netcode
- Builtin HTTP Server
- Railgun Balancing
- Consistant Shotgun Spread
- Improved Napalm Splash
- More Accessible Options

* More detailed information on the above features can be found at id software (http://www.idsoftware.com/).

Nice! Thanks for the heads-up.

02-07-07, 07:22 PM
This might just make me reinstall quake 4!

02-07-07, 07:29 PM
Sweet! I'll get it when I install the game with my new toy! :D

02-07-07, 08:29 PM
Hey thanks! :)
but I'm not really a quake fan....
I'll probably try it though

02-07-07, 08:38 PM
Great news ,can't wait for a final and a q4max release :D

Nice! How is Quake4 on Vista?

02-07-07, 10:51 PM
Works fine as far as I am able to see.

Not good at all.:thumbdwn:

It doesn't run as well as it does on XP, but it still plays fine. Those who absolutely have to have 100fps instead of 70 can always use XP instead.

Improved Napalm splash?

Did they add a new weapon?

02-08-07, 12:37 PM
Hmm, doesn't work with old savegames. That would suck. I might have to try it anyway (along with the new D3 patch) to see if it will fix the hitching I've been getting in those lately though..

In Point Release 1.3 they added a Napalm gun.

Original post updated with the competition mod Q4MAX release.

Q4MAX 0.78 is compatible with Quake 4 1.4 Beta.

This game is DEAD. There is nobody playing this game online. I see a few distant servers but overall nobody cares about this game anymore. I personally like the game myself, but to play it online.. Not at all fun playing by yourself! In fact I get quite upset when I label myself a cheater! :p

Pretty disappointed as the patch fixes a lot of things that really dragged the game down, saw lots of downloads of the patch yet ZERO people playing.
