Classic Version of Q3A 1.29f Beta Released
8:39 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

id software's Graeme Devine has again updated his .plan file, this time with news of a Classic version of the 1.29f beta point release for Quake 3 Arena. This news has been eagerly awaited by all pre-OS X fraggers, certainly -- however, as you will see, we're not out of the woods yet. Here's what Graeme had to say:

A Mac Classic build of 1.29f is in the process of being posted to the id ftp site.

I have not had time to make an installer, or extensively test this build. SO IT MIGHT NOT WORK. However, because of user demand I am making it available asap. If you want to download the .sit file and give it a go, it'll be there shortly.

The filename is quake3-MacClassic-1.29f-BETA.sit


Take heed, Graeme has gone out of his way to release this early, if you do have problems, spamming his mail isn't going to help matters. The download is similar in size to the OS X build at 25.3Mb, but the download shouldn't need any justifying for hardcore Q3A fans. We hope to have the file mirrored at macgamefiles soon, as id's server's are bound to be under even more pressure with another release. If you want to play it safe, there is likely to be an installer-based update soon. IMG will have further details along with some hard numbers as soon as our modems cool down!
