Here’s the skinny on some mods with booths here at the QuakeExpo! First off we have TurboQ. This features some neat enhancements, like damage numbers (aka floating numbers) when you do damage to a baddie, weapon tweaks, weapon switching while reloading (awesome!), and even cooler, slow motion mode! You can do this whenever you want. You replenish your slow motion power by gibbing monsters or their bodies! Sweet!   Next…

4-Player Quake3 splitscreen on a PC Spearmint Quake 3 is an ioquake3 spin-off with Turtlemod heritage known for splitscreen, but it also offers much more.  The goal is a platform for easy modding and new games.  Several features that were hard-wired in original Quake 3 are now independently moddable without touching the engine code.  Even the network code is revamped.  Player and game object variables can be added or removed,…
