A friend told me that Quake 3 was now downloadable, free and legal. He gave me a link but I did not want to do anything before asking: is Quake 3 downloadable for free and legal? I know the source is, but is the game by it self legal and free to download?
Hope this forum is still alive...
The original Quake 3 Arena is not free, but the source code is. There is a game called "Open Arena" that is a free download and not bad at all.
Like I said, It's not bad, but nowhere as graphic intense and the original. Our Staff at TFX attempted to port the Quake 3 Fortress mod over to Open Arena, but with all the missing textures and sounds it would have taken a total rework to do so.
I play OA now and then online.
