PQL
« on: March 10, 2013, 06:32:58 AM »
My internet is struggling to download pak00.pk3 within 12 hours time limit so I can't quite get the game yet.
Anyway I wanted to ask, what's the difference between PQL and standard QL?

I have never played VQ3 online but I have been somewhat recently been playing the CPM mod, I'm just wondering if PQL is anything like Challenge Promode.

So far I've been told that it has no weapon switch time, "air control" (no one said what specifically they meant, but I'm getting the idea that it's only like CPM's forward/back keys), and ramp jumps.

But I've been told classic CPM is still way better. Just wondering if QL is worth getting or not.

In short:
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROQUAKE LIVE, QUAKE LIVE,  AND CHALLENGE PROMODE ARENA (CPMA)?

I already know about how CPMA and vanilla/original quake 3 works, but not quake live or proquake live.

You're missing my point. I'm saying, go somewhere in Australia with fiber optic cables, or the equivalent, and load them there. You do have a laptop in your possession yes?

Optical cables project doesn't start in my area until about 2 years time. We're still on copper wires put from 1990's by tesltra (a phone company, they're shit but they do provide the construction of the connection cables).

My current computer is a laptop, and it overheats if I set the fps high. I usually, and I currently have com_maxfps on 38.

Ever heard of internet quotas? My internet goes back to "normal" speed on the 14th. Until then we have to deal with slow internet. When the internet is fast though, the bandwidth contributes to a meter which represents how much we're allowed to use left until the next month's 14th. Supposidly "full speed" = 100 mib/s and "capped speed" = 50 kb/s but this is clearly not the case with my home :/ (takes ~2 minutes to load facebook home page, ~20 seconds to google search)

You don't use a fist? (hence changes the verb)

PQL is Vanilla Quake Live with promode-style air control.
QL's rocket launcher is already a halfway-point between CPM and VQ3, so id doesn't have it re-balance for PQL.

PQL does have green armor, however. PQL isn't too popular since you need to have a premium account to play it, at least when I was playing frequently.

If you're wanting to play promode, Q3 CPM has a more active community than QL.

*facepalm*
I get about 1 game every 2 weeks via idling on the quakenet promode local channels (#promode.au) yet I get waay more games on xonotic. The QL forums seems to be active though so I thought I might give it a shot.

Turns out my drivers can't handle QLPrism nor just simple browser applications.. (0-4 fps)
