Windows

Installation

To install do something

Updating

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"

Mac

Linux

Android/iOS

We don't currently have an official version of ioquake3 for mobile devices, there are many versions of ioquake3 that you will find if you search app stores for Quake 3. We didn't make them, we can't fix them.

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
