This patch will bring your game to version 1.0.5.
QUAKE 4 1.0.5 BETA Update Available
A BETA update for QUAKE 4 is now available. This update is recommended for
Windows users with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) enabled
processors, multiple processors, or systems with a dual core processor. The
update is also required for Windows and Linux server admins as it addresses
a recently identified problem with servers left unoccupied for very long
periods of time (these servers will appear to be operating normally, but
will crash clients that attempt to connect to them). This update will bring
any previous version of the game (1.0.0 or 1.0.4) up to date and will not
affect pure server, PunkBuster compatibility or protocol consistency.
id Software and Raven have worked with Intel to dramatically improve QUAKE 4
performance on systems with HT Technology, multiple processors, or dual core
processors. Players who have a system with one of these configurations will
notice performance gains in QUAKE 4 of anywhere from 25% - 87% depending on
processor type. If you do not know whether or not you have a
multi-processor, dual core, or HT Technology enabled system, please see the
ReadMe file for simple instructions on checking your system. Please use the

the 1.0.5 update.

FIXES & UPDATES IN 184.108.40.206:
- Copied map files can now be overwritten/deleted without
- The console command "com_allowconsole" will stay set after
leaving the game.
- Improved Game Browser sorting and filtering: You can sort by
up to three criteria, which will be displayed just under the
server list, with the more recently clicked criteria sorting
first. For example, to sort by ping time, then number of
players, then gametype, click them in the reverse order:
Click "GAMETYPE," then "PLAYERS," then "PING." The server
list will be sorted by the fastest ping, then the servers with
the fewest players, then the gametype.
Clicking a category more than once will keep its position as
the primary sorting criteria, but will change the sorting order.
After cycling through all available sort types, clicking the
category a final time will remove it from the sorting. Each
criteria has specific behavior with one or two clicks, as
Favorite Server: Display only favorites, or only non-favorites.
Password Enabled: Display only locked server, or only unlocked
Dedicated Server: Display only Dedicated servers, or only Listen
Punkbuster Enabled: Display only PB-enabled servers, or only PB-
