    Hi guys,

    I bought Quake 3 Arena on eBay last week because I wanted to discover Urban Terror. Could anybody tell me how to install both games on Mac OS X because I don't understand anything and it drives me crazy. Thank you very much.

    To install quake pop in the CD and click the instal, you will need to find the updates somewhere on the net. Then to install urban terror, download it at http://urbanterror.net (you will need 4 files, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3), move the contents from the 3 updates into the 3.0 file (overwrite the old files), move that folder into your quake 3 folder.

    To install any mod for quake, just drop the folder that it comes with in the base Quake 3 directory. The only mod I've found that doesn't work for Mac is Western Quake, which is a shame. Try True Combat, it is by far the best mod out there, it takes a while getting used to not having a sight (you have to use the gun's sights) but then it isn't a problem at all. Have fun!

    After installing Quake in classic make sure to get the 1.32 patch for OSX before proceeding with anything else.

    Use the Quake3 1.3.2b2 build on VersionTracker for best results.

    You may have to hurry though, because as we speak they are porting Urban Terror from the Quake 3 engine and over to the ET (Enemy Territory) engine, which most likely will not support Mac..

    i've tried Urban Terror and while the screenshots look nice and all i just don't like it all that much. maybe i need to try it some more but one main problem is that i can only play single player cause the server browser never shows anything. plus while quake 3 runs like a dream on my 12" PB, Urban Terror runs like a dog.

    Well, the ingame browser has never worked very well.. You have to use ASE (PC) or Only Mortal (Mac).

    The reason for the lack of performance playing UrT is that the mod requires far more of your computer then just Quake 3.. However, you get more too.. Better graphics, sounds etc etc.. It's worth it!
