We will be running version 1.31 of Quake3 on the servers with
1.01 of OSP. The tourney and server specs will be version locked 2 weeks
before the event as to not risk running the tourney on untested software or
having to deal with newly discovered bugs and/or problems. Some of these rules
might seem obvious, but it's better to cover all the bases than leave people
We have a local
mirror for Quake3 updates here.
For easier administration
(for both us and you the player) we will be running the OrangeSmoothie
(OSP) tourney mod (modification) on the Quake3 servers. Also,
all of the
servers will be running the "OSP-PURE" client which helps
eliminate the chance of cheating (not that anyone coming would do that). You
will have to turn "Allow Downloads" to "on" (cl_allowdownloads
1) to have
the server automatically update your client. You can download the mod to practice
For servers and clients:

NOTES: The tourney servers will have "auto-demo" and
"auto-screenshot" enabled which would create and record demo's of the
tourney games and take a screenshot at the end. We will have information at
the event where you can upload/download event demo's. The pickup and public
servers will not have this enabled by default but you can set cg_autoAction to
"6" and the client will auto record and take a screenshot at the end of the
There will be pickup servers setup and running the entire
length of the event for practicing for the tournaments in addition to public
servers running the various other games types (CA/RA3/TA). If there is a gametype you'd like to play but don't see running check the webpage/gamespy
and if you still don't see it come up to the server table and ask.
These settings must stay at the default settings
The following settings should be observed:
- cl_maxpackets 20-100
- snaps > 20
cl_timenudge > -50
NOTE: com_maxfps should not change once the match starts.
Each tourney will have a specified map list for teams to choose from. It is ok for teams to play a map for a match that's not on the map list as long as BOTH teams agree.
NOTE: Where appropriate we will be using the CPL maps in place of the standard id map. These maps were designed for better team play through slightly different item placements so that both teams will have a better and more even game.

3rd Party Maps:
Here is a local mirror of some maps that will be required to play in some of the tourneys: 3rd Party Maps
NOTE: We will have ALL extra and 3rd party maps available for download on the local FTP server. I would HIGHLY discourage anyone from waiting for the server to auto-download the required map as the wait times will probably out weight the playtime on that map.
