More Quake 4 goodies

The console and .cfg file have a host of tweaks and tricks ready for the user to explore. We outline some of the basics you should know.

They are obviously tweaking a windows file, but I've tried out several of these and yes, they do work with the Linux version as well. One of the most handy is the startup addendum:

+set com_allowConsole 1 +disconnect

And my gawd, someone actually took over 700 screenshots and put together this walkthru.

None of the twist and turns, retracing steps, and guess work we found in Doom.

Anyway, that walkthrough here.
