I got Quake Arena the other day and installed it on my reasonably fast 500 mhz PIII system with 528 megs of RAM and a nice fast 32 meg video card Nvidia -TNT2 etc. etc.
I can’t get past the initial stages of Quake Arena when fighting the bots on anything but the absolute, most basic baby level. The bots are moving so fast and jumping and flipping continuously etc with perfect aim that I’m lucky to rack up 2-5 tags (which isn’t easy) before they decide to get serious, kick some booty and finish me off. It’s so ridiculous that the game play really isn’t that much fun. I’ve played several FP Shooters over the years and this is the first to really stymie me
The main problem, I suppose, is that I am using the keyboard for firing, aiming and moving etc. I really don’t see how you could move with the keyboard and shoot with the mouse (I tried) unless you were unusually ambidexterous.
Do any Quakeheads have some pointers or advice to keep from getting spanked so regularly?
