Installation Instructions

Installation Instructions - please read before asking questions
Generations Downloads - installation files for Generations Arena

Installation Instructions

Files should be installed core mod version 99e first, version 99f update second, then mappacks last so that the map rotation config files are up to date.

For those using the .exe versions, follow the instructions as prompted. Remember, you must specify your Quake III Arena location. The installer will create the \generations folder automatically if it does not exist.

For those with previous installations of Generations Arena, please be sure to make backup copies of any .cfg files and/or custom maps you may have within your generations folder. Any .pk3's within a pre-existing generations folder WILL be removed by the installer, and certain .cfg files MUST be overwritten in order for .99e to properly function. A desktop shortcut will be created for you automatically. Just click on it to play.

If you notice any odd behavior please be sure your com_hunkmegs setting is 128 or higher. This value should automatically default to 128 in version 99f

For those using the .zip versions, unzip to your Quake III Arena directory. It will automatically create the \generations path needed to play the game. If you already have a generations folder, please rename it or delete it prior to unzipping to avoid any version conflicts. You will need to create a shortcut with the following arguments to play:

"C:\Quake III Arena\quake3.exe" +set fs_game generations

Substitute the proper location for your Quake 3 executable. Com_hunkmegs MUST be set to 128 or higher, but no higher than 3/4 your total system memory. Com_hunkmegs should default to 128, but double-check this value if you run into any strange problems or hunk_alloc error messsages.

Note: Some systems may have issues with a com_hunkmegs setting over 256, and you should not need to go higher than that value.

If for any reason you choose to uninstall the mod, the generations folder will be completely removed along with the desktop shortcut. Be sure to save any screenshots or .cfg files you wish to keep, or they will be lost at uninstall.
