Q4Max adds many features and fixes to Quake 4, making it a much more enjoyable and complete game. For this reason, most servers running Quake 4 are running Q4Max.
Release of Q4Max 0.80. In addition to the usual assortment of fixes and optimisations you've come to expect, this release brings a number of major changes. SuperHud: This new system allows you to easily to create custom HUD layouts, and gives a significant boost to framerate - typically increasing FPS by 25%. Anyone who has edited a CPMA SuperHud will be largely familiar with the syntax, although there are a few differences, so take a look at the examples and documentation. Multiplayer Bots: Our Artificially Intelligent friends have reached the point where we are happy to list them as a feature. In addition to basic navigation skills, they understand some complex concepts like timing armors and dodging their opponent's fire. There are always ways bots can be improved, but hopefully you'll enjoy them at this point. Menu Restructure: The menus have been significantly restructured ; most importantly, the entire settings menu is accessible in-game. For full details, see the changelog.
