I have css/cscz, ut 2k3 and Quake 3 arena. I don't have UT 2k4 though. So anybody starting a server plz inform this post so that we have many humans to play against.

Q3 can run on 56k no problem. I used to when i had dial up. The only thing that can affect is the distance between our houses, probably. But, we won't know for sure before we try.

Count me in too as long as you guys let me know beforehand and the difference in time zones doesn't create a problem :)

Might have issues with lag due to the geographical separation :p

For hosting a multiplayer, here's a small tutorial:
-Go to command prompt and type "ipconfig". Note your public IP address.
-Start quake3 arena
-Start a singleplayer game. Press the "~' key and type "net_port". Note this value too. By default it is always 27960.
-Come out of quake and report in this thread the time, IP and port.
-Start quake 3, again.
-Click on Multiplayer
-Choose the "Internet" as source
-Click the "create" button
-Choose the game type, map and number of players.
-Check "Pure server" to make sure everyone is playing with the same mod as the server.
-Uncheck "dedicated server" if u are also planning on playing. Otherwise, if you want to only host, then check it.


For joining a hosted game,
-Write down the IP address amd port of the computer hosting the game.
-Start quake 3
-Go to options->player ans select your character and player name.
-Click on multiplayer
-Select the Internet source and click on the "Specify" button.
-Enter the details and start.


@Mohit, yes you can play on 256k. I have played on a 56k and Q3 is supposed to work even on 33.6k, so, no problem. As for the amount of data sent/received, I don't know. You might be able to reduce the amount of data sent by choosing your connection type in the Options->Network menu option as 56k. But I am not really sure.

Alright, the time here at my place is around 8:53 PM. If anyone's starting the server or wanna join, start telling your optimum time to start.
