The last week of id id software's campaign "6 Maps in 6 Week" brings us the map Quarantine, which was originally designed for Clan Arena but is also suitable for TDM, 1v1 and FFA. Read the official release announcement for more information:

For week 6 of our campaign we're very excited to deliver "Quarantine," another totally new arena created by resident designer Yan 'Method' Ostretsov - author of our week two CTF arena 'Siberia' as well as other popular CA maps 'Trinity' and 'Asylum'. Quarantine was originally designed specifically for Clan Arena and features 3 primary "zones," surrounding and connected in multiple ways to an area of higher ground in the center. This architecturally and artistically distinct arena is medium sized and most suitable for 2-10 players in Clan Arena, Team Deathmatch, Duel, and Free for All. For team deathmatch, the teleporters have been blocked and power-ups added to better promote the strategy and style of TDM play.

We hope you are enjoying all of the arenas that we've released over the past six weeks, and we look forward to bringing you more in the future.

Yeah, you're right, the minigun is the chaingun. The shaft is the Lightning Gun.

For me personally, I don't really play on maps with the BFG, so I don't have it hotkeyed.

For any Australians interested (Are they ever?) unknownz and mick05 from the clan 420 are running an open and invite 1v1 tournament spanning across several weeks, this is to be the first season of what there hoping will be many. At the moment there are quite a few people signed up from varying skill levels so even newer players should get some decent matches. Should the first season of 1v1 run smoothly they hope to also start running CTF, TDM and CA competitions. The signup page for the first 1v1 tournament can be found here.

Arena Live is now released as a browser game only for Linux OS and Firefox browser.
Arena Live is the free Quake3 Clone Open Arena, based on ioQuake3 engine, an extendend version of the id tech 3, with less bugs and more added features. Open Arena comes with own built content like new textures, models, maps, weapons, and sounds.

In the future Arena Live will support other OS. For playing you need a quick registration on the site. Itīs more like a demonstration and experiment i guess, havenīt tested it by myself.

the maker ZeXx86 says:

Before some time, I was interested in QuakeLive (really, I am still), but some unnamed developer dont work as I expect.
He talks to ppl that port of QuakeLive coming soon -- first month, second, third and so on, but where it is today ?
ID Software got new developer specialised for this job from ca 2009.1 and you can check its web page - Mac and Linux coming soon .. huh
I dont want wait anymore, I want show to this company and other, that it is possible to make games for GNU/Linux distros before windows release is pushed. Linux/Unix can't be ignored!

Too bad OA sucks, icon_sad.gif

I saw this yesterday and it looked good as I use Linux as my everday operating system and just use Windows for games. Hope it happens or I hope QuakeLive becomes available on Linux which is the better option. Why does OA suck?

Right here is a quick question. I would like to use a cfg like stermys but I do not like the fact that youc an not see the weapon and the weapon hot keys and crosshairs. Is there any quick and easy way to change this or does it get compilcated?
