"I remember quite vividly what it was like to be a 'newbie' at Quake 2. Then, I discovered the most exciting mod in the game with true exhilerating 'run & gun' action, Loki's Minions Capture The Flag, or LMCTF! There were several veterans who took the time to help me and got me up to speed on playing the game properly. In addition, they helped me get my configs done properly, pointed me in the right direction to find information and gave me hints. Well, here's my payback, hope you find what you're looking for here, lots of information and detail. Send me a note if you find it helpful, and 'Thanks!!' for stopping by."
The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (22.214.171.124:27951), that have regular groups of players who hang out and have a frag or two.
Instagib seems to be the mod of the moment, a server side mod (no download needed, you just connect and play) with our own server, Alphalink (126.96.36.199:27911), Wireplay (188.8.131.52:27999) and EISA (184.108.40.206:27930) being the pick of the pack.
GX is still going strong, something about the skill and discipline of the game keeps people keen, and Alphalink (220.127.116.11:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play.
Quake II LIVES!!
