    Im really impressed...

    technology wise its really quite a feat , a small download and then all the maps/guns/sounds just as I remember them...

    See a little bit of lag at times , but other than that its been pretty rock solid. tbh I have been playing it on my work PC , with a web connection of 11mb shared across 700 users , so it aint doing that bad !

    If anyone see's me ( GrooveUK ) please take it easy.........im not as good as it as I remember ;-)

    Problem i'm having is after signing up the client won't download - it's giving me a 403 forbidden message, any ideas?

    I thought this was all in the broswer with no download...:confused:

    I've got real problems running the game properly, fps between 1 and 5 :eek:

    There's a few threads on the official forums about it but no fix, crazy!

    Oh dunno about that mate. I played QII religiously throughout highschool - every day for 5 years :D Mind you has been a while since I've played any Quake game, so I might be a bit rusty :D
