Now Running Capture the Flag at 126.96.36.199
Quake can now be played on the bbs. Quake, unlike the other games here,
is played over the internet. Since the server is located on the bbs it
will run much faster than playing on other servers.
To play you will need:
*DOS users click here to setup a DOS internet connection for quake
- Quake 1.06 (registered)
- The Capture the Flag for Quake (downloadable from the bbs)
- A 28.8kbpsor faster modem
- A Pentium processor and 16mb of ram (8mb for DOS)
- Windows 95 properly set up to use the internet on the bbs*
How to play:
Connect to the internet using the bbs and Windows 95 as you usually do. In you're Quake folder double click
q95.bat. Once Quake loads select multiplayer, then join a game, then tcp/ip, then enter
188.8.131.52. It will then connect to the server and allow you to play.
To make things easier you can drag
q95.bat to the
desktop and create a shortcut to it, this will give you an icon for
the game (you can also drag it to the start menu folder to give an icon
on the start menu).
The bbs is now running Capture The Flag Quake, create a directory in the Quake directory and name it ctf. Then unzip
3wctf30_.zip (found in the file library) into this directory. Run quake like this:
q95.bat -game ctf. You can run it from start menu's run or right clicking on you're short cut to
q95.bat, selecting properties, and changing the CMD line to
c:\your're quake dir here\q95.bat -game ctf
Setup the dos connection as described here. Connect according to the documentation for the QuakePPP software. Run
quake.exe and join a game at
184.108.40.206 as described above.
To run CTF in the DOS do as above but, run it like this:
quake -game ctf
If Quake lags too much or pauses a lot with the phone jack icon try
disabling compression on you're modem, in some cases this helps.
