Subject: Quake 3 / Team Arena Patch v1.30
Somehow missed posting it yesterday, but id Software has released the v1.30 for Quake 3 Arena the Team Arena expansion. You can grab it from id Software, PlanetQuake3, Blues News, 3D Gamers (link), or XGR. One of the many updates provided is a network compression update:
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.The list of updates is too long to post, head on over and read the readme for a full update list.
