* Dead players could talk to the living during the time before they respawned as spectators.
* Spectators in in-eyes mode now witness the death of the player they follow before moving on
* HC now feels like AQ2. Basicaly in aq2, one shotgun shot had it's yaw changed -5 units from the direction the player was looking, and the other one had it's yaw changed to be +5 units from the direction the player was looking.
In rq3 before, one shot went straight forward, and the other shot when +20 units.
Kinda made for some bigger spread.

Mad props go out to Johnny Bravo, NiceAss, Blaze, Aasimon, and Slicer for working just as hard if not harder than pre 2.0.

Keep checking back for more updates about additions. There could be one big suprise not listed above.

| Topic: STA League Open | Posted by: Centurion
News from Karmann over at the Stronger than All - Reaction Quake 3 League is that clan signup has begun. If you're not familiar with the STA here's a brief description from their page-

As you probably guessed by now, STA-RQ3 is a league, not a ladder. Clans are only ranked based on matches scheduled by STA admins.

Currently there is only one division (as RQ3 grows in popularity regional division will be added). Each division has at least one coordinator that is responsible for his division's matches. Coordinators set up schedules based on clans' recent records, winning streaks, experience, and rankings. They are also responsible for any disputes that may arise, such as those caused by server problems or a clan that is ignoring the rules.

Thanks for the support STA!

Aussie's now have a focal point for Reaction Quake 3 with the recent release of Reaction Down Under following the ever so popular Action Down Under Messageboards

"Welcome to your Australian Reaction Quake Portal. Firsty, what we hope to provide. A central point for Reaction Quake to help create the community that Action Quake in Australia has enjoyed for years. In my view the community itself is what made Action Quake so popular, which dare I say has outlasted almost every game in Australia." - CptCaveman

Myself and Caveman are running the show, and we ask of the Aussie RQ3 Community to show their support. News posters are also required - Check site for details.

Forum's will also be available, international players are welcome with open arms

Thanks for the support guys.

Just a short news post. The OGL is officially open for match-play. The required number of teams (20) has joined up, and matche signup is underway. So if you or your clan is on the OGL roster, get over there and get your match on.

Just wanted to make a real quick news post. If you hadn't noticed from the previous two news posts, both the OGL and GUN competitive gaming groups have added Reaction Quake 3 to their ladders. Make sure to sign up on one of them and support the competitive Reaction Quake 3 community!

Also, just another note, though I'm not sure exactly how many downloads we had (last time I was better able to keep track), its well over the 5,000 mark at this point, and if I had to take a guess, I would say around 10,000 downloads. The servers always have people on them (which we hoped would be a BIG welcome change from Beta 1.x), so hop on one! If you're having trouble finding servers, try using a server search like Gamespy or The All-Seeing Eye. Both programs return around 60 servers from around the world. Of course, you're also welcome to use the in-game browser as well.

Head over to Gaming Unlimited Network they have RQ3 ladders up as well.

From ButtaKnife-
Currently we have 1v1, 2v2, and 4v4 competition ladders open. To access, click Competition, then Quake III Arena, then Reaction Quake 3. Once RQ3 players populate the ladders we will hold an election for the RQ3 admins. Until such time, the main GUN Staff will handle any problems, disputes, etc. We also want players to be aware that our league is under development and not every bug has been found and not every feature is added. For players wishing to help build a league and compete worldwide against other RQ3ers, the ladders are OPEN!

BTW we are hard at work on the 2.1 update. Lots of bug squashes, tweaks, and even some new features. Stay tuned for more progress reports.

Better start getting those clans together. News from Apathy on the OGL homepage is that RQ3 ladders will be up shortly. In his words -

Never fear, the staff here at the OGL are working fast -- look for Reaction Q3 ladders and rules to be up immediately. Even as we speak, our admins are working with members of the development team to confirm server settings and finalize our map list. Ladders to Look for include 1v1, 2v2, Team Open and Uber with the possibility of more to come.

Keep on checking the OGL for updates.

Thanks OGL for getting RQ3 Match Play in gear!

| Topic: Beta 2.00 Released! | Posted by: hexydes
Welcome to Reaction Quake 3 Beta 2.00, the long awaited update for Reaction Quake 3. Along with new maps, a new user-interface, new models, and other graphical updates, the long awaited addition of Teamplay and replicated Action Quake 2 physics is included.

Beta 2.00 can be downloaded in the downloads section. At initial release, we will have a small list of download sites. As the day goes on and more mirrors are brought to our attention, we will add them to the list as well.

Make sure to un-install Reaction Quake 3 Beta 1.0 and 1.10 before installing Beta 2.00, as the files in the previous betas are not needed for Beta 2.00

We'll post brief updates as needed throughout the day here. Make sure to check if you have an installation error, or find any other quirks.

Error: "Input file empty!"
To fix this error, from the rq3 installer exe, right click on the file and click on extract. From there, open up the folder ReactionQuake3-Beta20_win32 and open "Files" in that folder. There is an rq3 zip file, open that up and extract to Quake III Arena/reaction (make sure to use lower case letters for "reaction"). Thanks go to DoughBoy for the fix

Error: Reaction Quake 3 does not show up in mod menu
If you downloaded the .exe Windows Installer, Reaction Quake 3 might not show up in your mods menu. To fix this, go to your "reaction" directory. If you don't have a file called description.txt grag it here-


Throw it in you reaction dir and your all set. Restart Quake III Arena and you should see Reaction Quake 3 in the mod menu now.
