Just a word about gameplay, etiquette, and jumping to conclusions without evidence. For a qualifier let me first say that I despise cheaters and unfair players but I recognize the definitions of those terms vary from person to person. It is possible to find servers that discourage camping and obvious cheats like aimbots and wallhackers without ruining the game with Draconian counter measures. Aimbots are incredibly easy to spot while spectating a player. They can be banned and are from better servers once identified.

I find Punnkbuster and the like to be overly restrictive. For example how is it unfair if I set my Field of View to 120 which does make my width perspective wider so I can see further to the sides but am de-compensated by distances being proportionately elongated so that figures, both targets and teammates look smaller and further away? Is it cheating if I have a better video card than you do? How about if I set the graphics in the config to super eye candy that causes the flag or weapons fire glow to show through walls and floors as is built into the original game and not some addon script? Note: This is often mistaken for wallhacking which is an illegal exploit NOT built into the configs.

Over and over again I see newer players accuse old timers of hax just because they cannot even imagine that skill level. There are some obsessed gamers out there that play for many hours a day and play the same game that way for years. They get amazing. If you play Q3Arena or IoQuake3 check out even the nightmare bots on the GIN server. Be prepared to be humbled.

I'm just advocating to have some class and smarts, to not cheat and not easily jump to conclusions you cannot possibly prove. The things you can prove by spec'ing and maybe even recording by all means do so. The rest, either step up your own skilz or find a server that caters more to your level or if you like strict rules use Punkbuster and the like.

One free, or partly free game mentioned her, Quake Live, assigns a distinct identity to your IP and you can only get one unique game name on that IP. That discourages a lot of hax and haxorz right from Jump Street. Have fun there a lot of decent free games that not only run on Linux but where Linux has a significant edge over Windows players.

Urt 4.2 is gonna be out soons! It's apparently getting PB/anti-cheat and a few other things. Also it is built off the q3 engine, originally a mod like CS. It's fun but there aren't as many cheaters as you'd think, no more than CS/CS:S. If there was a game that's the one I'd play over the rest... oh wait, I do play it over the rest. =P At least I'll play it till rage comes out, I really hope rage turns out to be good.
