yeah I really like the idea of playing Quake Live w/ you guys. Honestly, my favorite TR month this year was PSO since I got to play online with a bunch of guys I don't usually get to game with.

Just be wary of the version of Quake available on Steam. The versions they offer are winquake v1.09 and glquake v1.09, but these have issues with changing certain options, such as resolution, brightness, etc., and they're not meant for a modern OS(these versions were designed for Windows 95). I spent a few hours messing around with it several months ago and eventually quit to play something else because it didn't want to work properly.

Second.

Also, Quake Live is terrible because UT is better.

Yes. UT is also better than Quake III.

And I'll check out Darkplaces.

Agreed that UT > Q3, but Q1 + Q2 > U1 + U2

Well, yeah, but the comparison being made is that Q1 + Q2 > U1. U2 is a complete non-entity.

Darkplaces

It's a full drop-in replacement for the existing binaries. Drop the DLLs and exe in your Quake directory and rename darkplaces.exe to whichever Quake binary is being run by Steam (I think it's winquake by default).
