Quake III Connect Tweaks Guide
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Accelerate Your Mac has noted the posting of a link in their forums that points to a Quake III connection tweaks guide. Currently posted at SavageUK.com, the guide contains in-depth terminology and explanations concerning the tweaking of various connection settings in order to maximize gameplay during Quake III sessions.

Here's a clip concerning the cg_smoothclients setting:

This setting helps smooth out movement when other players have packet loss, very low rate or low cl_maxpackets. Normally you would see them stutter or warp on your screen in multiplayer. Setting this cvar to "1" adds extra prediction code for such clients and their movements as seen by you should be less erractic. One side effect of enabling this option is that prediction errors can occur. Do not use cg_smoothclients if you are using a negative cl_timenudge.
For those that don't wish to wade through terminology, the guide also lists suggested settings for various methods of connection such as LAN, ASDL, and ISDN. Be sure to check it out if you're into Quake III!
