Midget Wars Updated
10:22 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Midget Wars, a mod for Quake III, has been updated to version 1.1. Midget Wars is a mod where players take control of tiny aliens as they battle over the most valuable resource of earth, marbles. The characters and weapons in the mod feature cell-shaded artwork, and it includes a new team-based gameplay mode centered around acquiring marbles. This new gameplay type, called Marble Collection, is very similar to the bombing run mode of Unreal Tournament 2003.

Here's a list of fixes in the patch:

This is a small update (314kb) that updates Midget War's source up to the 1.32 source. There are some other minor tweaks, as follows:

- Clients no longer kicked when someone is killed.
- Picking up the marble no longer removes all of your weapons

- The Energy Shield is now NOT an auto-pickup
- The 'Start Server' screen has been redesigned and now contains a max player limit and a
collection limit for Marble Collection games.
