Q3A v1.29f - Tonight!

For those die-hard Q3 & TA players - sometime around 21:30 CST, there's supposed to be a new Point Release Beta. It's jammed pack with goodness and:
NEW NETWORK CODE
There is a new compression system built into the network code of the latest point release. Essentially, this reduces the bandwidth usage of Quake 3 and Team Arena by a ratio of 5:1 over previous versions of the game. Modem players, as well as everyone else, should experience a significant improvement in internet game play because of this.

AUTO UPDATE SYSTEM
Within this release is an Auto Update system that can be used to at any time to check for and download updates to Quake 3 and Team Arena. When you install the point release a file will be created in your Quake III Arena directory and in the Start Menu called, “Check For Quake III Arena Updates”. Running this file will check our servers for updates and notify you if there is a newer version or inform you that your files are up to date. The auto updater will create a directory on your C: where downloaded updates will be stored. It is important that you DO NOT delete this directory. If you plan to uninstall Quake III, make sure to uninstall all of the point releases as well.
Keeps your eyes peeled to PlanetQuake for links to the patch.
