The QUAKE 4 1.4.2 Point Release Patch is now available for download. This update includes a host of features added during the 1.4 beta program, such as: refined hitboxes, optimized sound and network code, configurable fps caps, weapon balancing, server direct autodownloading, addonpak fixes and Q4TV to name only a few. The majority of our additions have been included thanks to direct community feedback and beta participation. We hope everyone enjoys the new content, features and fixes! For a more complete list of changes, please see the README.

Haven't purchased QUAKE 4 or looking to preview the changes that have been made since its release? We will also be releasing a new QUAKE 4 1.4.2 powered Multiplayer Demo soon! Stayed tuned to idsoftware.com for more information and download links.

The 1.4.2 update affects pure server and protocol consistency. Therefore, players who update to 1.4.2 from ANY previous version will only be able to connect and play against other 1.4.2 users. Save games and demos created on any previous version of the game will not be compatible with the 1.4.2 update.

That's what I heard last time, there were 3 people on "total". I honestly don't know why they bother, obviously nobody is interested in playing.

These changes seem completel MP-centered, which I don't play, and I don't want to lose my saves...

Check out the readme (http://www.idsoftware.com/documents/readme_full_14.htm) file, it also fixes single-player problems (most sound related), I'm pasting here some of them:

reworked the hit sounds / hit feedback propagation.
fixed skipping problems
fix a crash in single player (sound related)
several OpenAL sound fixes

And other ton of non-mp fixes, too long to list here. Btw, they always say old savegames won't work but I have upgraded every Q4 patch and my savegames always worked after update.

I can't connect to any MP games after this patch. Single player works fine, but after I choose a server, it looks like it's connecting, drops to windows, shows that console window thingie, a bunch of stuff shows in there and then it drops to desktop.

I have even uninstalled the game, installed retail then patched 1.4.2 with the 267 full file.
