Windows

Where are my files? I'm used to them being in the Quake 3 directory!

On Windows, all user specific files such as autogenerated configuration, demos, videos, screenshots, and autodownloaded pk3s are now saved in a directory specific to the user who is running ioquake3.

In order to access this directory more easily, you can also type %APPDATA%\Quake3\ in the file explorer and hit enter

On NT-based such as Windows XP, this is usually a directory named:

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Quake3\

On Windows 8, 9, and 10

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Quake3\

I don't like this!

You can revert to the old single-user behavior by creating a shortcut to your ioquake3 executable with the fs_homepath cvar set to the directory where ioquake3 is installed. For example: ioquake3.exe +set fs_homepath "c:\ioquake3"

Using HTTP/FTP Download Support

Want to download maps and mods faster? If the server you're using supports it, you can!

Just type /cl_allowdownload 1 in the console and hit the enter key.

Changing that number to 0 will disable downloads, here are some other options:

   1 - ENABLE
   2 - do not use HTTP/FTP downloads
   4 - do not use UDP downloads
