Red Alert to Q3A Server Admins

Well, that certainly didn't take long did it? sCary is reporting that Quake 3 cheats have surfaced already. He gives some screenshots of a "radar" mod that lets you see where everyone is in the level. There is reportedly one auto-aim bot already available and another is being worked on. Add those to the fullbright hacks that I've known about for quite some while.

The folks over at Antibotics are working on fixes as we speak. Until then, the only solution is to use sv_pure 1 on your server. Personally, I don't see why people get so up in arms about sv_pure 1, but that's me. Do you really need a custom HUD? Thankfully, the non-beta Point Release fixed the bug where people were being kicked on level change with sv_pure 1 set.

Obviously there are some people out there who can't help but be incredibly lame. If you need to cheat in online games to get ego gratification, I feel very, very sorry for you.

The Master comments: Here we go again. You'd think people would actually like to enjoy a game for a little while before they kill it off.
