To make the settings stick if they are not, you need to create a autoexec file. http://www.viperlair.com/articles/howto/software/tweakq4/

Autoexec.cfg

An autoexec.cfg file is a text file that you can edit with your settings and have those settings run every time Quake 4 starts without any interaction from you. You simply create a new text file in the Quake 4\q4base folder (the same location as the Quake4Config.cfg) and save it as autoexec.cfg. Make sure you save it as all files and not as a text file, or you will end up with an autoexec.cfg.txt file.

Once that's done, you can list your commands and binds for settings in an order that makes sense to you. Here is a small example of what is possible with an autoexec.cfg. The start of my own begins as -

// VoOdoO's AUTOEXEC //

// <-- These tell Quake 4 to ignore that line, so you can add your own information markers

// C O N T R O L S bind "w" "_forward" bind "a" "_moveleft" bind "s" "_back" bind "d" "_moveright" bind "SPACE" "_speed" //walk-run

That's a small example, but what you can see above would set up your movement controls for you. If perhaps you wanted to use the ESDF keys, you could simply change the keys (highlighted in red in the example) to the settings you want. You could even copy that autoexec.cfg file, take it a friends house, drop it in their q4base folder and have you movement keys set without even starting the game.

Other options aside from key binds are prefixed with one of 2 (there are 5 total but it's the first two we are interested in for the basics) indicators - seta and set.

I will look around tonight for falldamage and rail stuff. I have some free time soon.

Here is another tweak site I came accross: http://www.tweakguides.com/Quake4_4.html

Do you need to go into the config file to edit your MP settings (ie turning off shadows for MP) or can you do it in game? I havent screwed around with it, cuz I dont want to ruin my SP settings. I dont have any complaints of lag or anything, and IM usually at 60fps or higher, but if turning off shadows helps more, than Im all for it.

Thanks in advance.

Some settings must be done in the config file. You can turn off shadows in game menu.

What you need to do is what I posted before, make a autoexec.cfg file and launch that when you play MP ;) This way your SP settings stay unaffected.

I have been playing all the Quake's since the first when it was released in 1996! I love them all. Quake 4 is amazing and can't wait for ET-QuakeWars - that's if I manage to play online but I'm a bit funny about online play and I don't know why - just a bit sceptical I guess. I have done network play before now on the school network until we all got sussed out - those were the days ;-) But the thing about Quake III Arena was that you had bots so I never felt the need to go online if you get what I mean? I would consider myself to be that annoying little brat in the supermarket always asking his mum and dad "Why??" to everything they answer - but I just don't have the bottle to go up against the HARDCORE Quakers. Any pointers or anyone wishing to lure me over to the darkside are more than welcome to try?! Like I said I love the game - I just want the opportunity to love it more! Goboy

If you need any pointers I can help you. You learn so much more by playing hardcore quakers than you do bots or unskilled players. First thing is first. Post your q3config and I will tweak it for you.

Likes: gameplay and weapon damage allthough the nailgun does seem weaker than machinegun...

I wish they would put the DENIED sound back in game when you get beaten to the powerups and also lower the sound of the machine gun it is wayyy too loud..

all in all love this game have been playing these games since wolf3d and open gl is the best imo...
