Essential Config Tweaks for Beginners, and Semi-Comprehensive ‘Pro’ Config Tweaks

Hi there folks,

Sparked by a discussion in IRC, I’ve made 2 config files which are aimed at 2 different groups of people. Read on if you want to know more..

Quake Live is an extremely configurable game, unlike almost any other. You can change so many things that new people usually don’t realise, including some settings which provide an obvious benefit to you. A lot of new people often consider it as cheating because they didn’t know about these things, but in reality the customisability is a large part of what makes Quake so good.

Here I have made two separate config files. Both include a bunch of essential settings and tweaks which I think every player should know about and use. The first is just there settings, without any extra settings which are just personal preferences. I feel all of the settings in the config provide a benefit in-game, through one way or another. The second is a very comprehensive config which includes most of the configurable settings someone may want to change in the game, aside from very personal ones such as mouse sensitivity and accel. The configs are very heavily commented – I have aimed to explain to people what each command does or why people use it.

Sections include:

  1. Ease of use tweaks
  2. Video settings
  3. Mouse settings
  4. Weapon settings
  5. In-game visual settings
  6. HUD settings
  7. Audio settings
  8. Gameplay tweaks
  9. Network settings

tl;dr– 2 configs. 1st is for new people who want the ‘edge’ other people have, and the 2nd is for people who want to delve further into customisation, but aren’t sure what to change or what settings do.



Please download and reply with comments, especially is it helps you.
