Finally, Quake 4 also has a CD check, whereby you must have the game CD in your CD/DVD drive to launch the game. I really find this objectionable, given the game relies on a CD Key to protect the game from illegal users playing online, which is where the bulk of Quake 4's playability comes from. However while there are No- CD patches, and methods like the use of virtual images which can circumvent this, I can't cover these here as usual for legal reasons.
Please don't email me asking for these. Just be aware they exist, and they work, and hopefully Raven will remove the CD check in a future patch. Update: As of the 1. Patch the CD/DVD check has been officially removed by Activision. You don't need any form of 'No- CD' or 'Fixed Image' any longer, the patch removes all such requirements, so install the latest patch and enjoy the game. Thanks go to Activision for removing it so quickly after the game's release. Maps and Mods. It is absolutely guaranteed that Quake 4 will have a range of user- made maps and mods created for it in the fine tradition of both the earlier Quake series, and the highly modifiable Doom 3 engine upon which it is based.
The full Quake 4 Editing Tools have been released and you can download them from the Quake. SDK Site, which also provides a range of links to guides for creating and editing Quake 4 material. You can also use the Editor, Edit. FX and Mod. View console commands (See the Advanced Tweaking section) to load up the Quake 4 Level Editor, FX Editor and Model Viewer respectively. The Quakemas Q4 Map Pack weighs in at 2. MB and contains three new multiplayer maps for Quake 4 - well worth downloading. Note that it is also now included in the latest patch for the game.
To find more maps and mods, check out the following: Quake 4 Mods. Quake 4 MP Maps. Raven. Games. Quake 4 Editing Forums. Quake. 4X Mod. Q4. Max Competition Mod.
These sites and many others provide you with links to user- made maps and mods. In particular, an interesting mod to try is this Quake 4 Parallax Mapping Mod, which can greatly improve the appearance and realism of surfaces in Quake 4.
Keep in mind that the Quake series has spawned so many mods and maps, and has so much fan interest, that there will be literally hundreds of user- made maps and mods out eventually. I will try to post the most prominent ones here as I become aware of them. The next section of the guide covers In- Game Settings for Quake 4.
