Post subject:  New Quake 4 Beta patch

The id Software Website now offers a new version 1.4 beta patch for QUAKE 4, introducing several fixes and new features, including Q4TV.

Here's word:
The Quake 4 1.4 Beta patch is now available for download. This update includes a host of features such as: refined hitboxes, optimized sound and network code, configurable fps caps, weapon balancing, server direct autodownloading, and addonpak fixes, to name only a few. We are especially excited to introduce our new spectator support to Quake 4 - Q4TV. The majority of our additions have been included thanks to direct community feedback. Your continued feedback on this beta will be greatly appreciated.

We hope everyone enjoys the new content, features and fixes! For a more complete list of changes, please see the README.

The 1.4 beta update affects pure server and protocol consistency. Therefore, players who update to 1.4 beta from ANY previous version will only be able to connect and play against other 1.4 beta users. Save games and demos created on any previous version of the game will not be compatible with the 1.4 beta update.

its up at q4.mhgaming.com:28004

mirror here ftp://files.mhgaming.com/quake4/patches/

you'll need the cmp map pak to join that server
ftp://files.mhgaming.com/quake4/pk4s/q4 ... ssions.pk4

EDIT: the cmp pak is no longer necessary (1.4.1 beta is released), leaving the link for historical purposes...

Hi Hex:

I was on your Q4 server last night checking out the new community map submissions, and someone jumped in and we played a few matches.

It seemed to work a lot better than I had remembered when I last played the game months ago.

1.4 beta is a huge improvement over the bungled activision release.

I should have a q4max server up uhh.. soon. Terragen2 is currently occupying my waking brain (and three basement computer) cycles...

What kind of pipe you got coming into the basement now steve?

The basement is a 7M/768 DSL but all the gameservers are at our small datacenter. (redundant OC12, or something ridiculous like that) We just built out 5000 more sq feet of datacenter space in another building and are about to open that up. !dev1

Cool, I work for Rackspace.com now but I have no idea what amount of bandwidth they have, I know they use like six different ISP's out of each DC.

Sorry I thought you were still running them in your basement. :D

Yeah, I'm getting it from your FTP. Thanks :) My DSL is garbage though, lol.....65KB/s

I don't really see anything in the way of new maps, textures, etc in the patchnotes that would indicate such a large patch.
