3:17 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Following the reports of a bug in Quake 3: Team Arena that allowed players to become invincible with the Guard powerup, Todd Hollenshead of id Software updated his .plan with news that they have have set up a Team Arena server with a beta patch that fixes the bug. Todd asks that anyone who wants to help test the new sever-side patch can log on to any of id's Team Arena servers. Here is the rest of the .plan update:
We're testing a new beta server-side executable that stops the "Guard" exploit. If you want to help us try it out, come and join on one of the following:If you think you can beat id at their own game, log on a start fragging away! Remeber that to play Team Arena on the Mac, you need to buy the PC version and download the 1.27g beta patch.

We'll probably jump on the Terrain server here in a little bit to maybe play a little id vs. everyone CTF and monitor the stability of the executable.
You don't have to download anything new since it's server only. Just join and play.
If you have any feedback specific to the server patch, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and put "New Executable Feedback" in the subject line. Please DO NOT email id employees directly as your feedback will just get lost.
