OK earthling, listen up. Quake is the game. It is how I hunt. To learn more about Quake and get all the latest news, see the buttons below for links to Blue's News and Redwood's. The best Quake conglomerates are Stomped and Planet Quake. You should also look into QuakeWorld and GameSpy for they together provide the most advanced multi-player environment for the internet.
In a Quake game I am and to you I say HOOAH! I hunt with a band of soldiers-of-fortune from .
BTW - to correctly pronounce Lagitus you take the 3 words: lag, it and us, and say them together with the emphasis on the first sylable. Say it ... Lag-it-us ... there that's better.
If you do see us in action and don't die instantly, then say hello. Are those great uniforms (known as skins) or what?
My clan and division have opened comm links for dialog with punny humans such as yourself. Join either channel #lagitus or #lagitus_gz on irc.GamesNET.net if you wish to chat. We also maintain a web site with clan information and accept challenges for QW Death Match.
If you are interested in how other people configure their Quake controls, here is my QuakeWorld v2.21 optimized autoexec.cfg and a secondary weapons system too. Both of these files must be placed in your \quake\id1 directory.
In case you are wondering what Lagitus means, you can learn all about that on our clan web site or on Lag City. In short, network lag is one of the key factors in playing real time action games via the internet. If you do play Quake and end up in High Ping Hell, then you probably already appreciate some of the things we "Lag's" endure.
A fun pasttime that our clan founder, Zaphoid, created is "Spank the LPB". LPBs (Low Ping Bastards) are lucky folks that have superior internet connections via ISDN, cable modem, etc. These connections usually have a 2 to 10+ times advantage in speed and react times while playing Quake. Talk about unfair advantage! But we "Lags" love to play these LPBs because in many cases we will beat them. That's right, a 10 times advantage, but we use skill to overcome the technical advantages. When we Lags beat an LPB, otherwise known as 'spanking the LPB', then we collect the screenshot as proof of a good spanking.
Here is a recent Spank the LPB screenshot. Do you measure up?
Here is my Quake2 configuration file (autoexec.cfg.) This file must be placed in your \quake2\baseq2 directory.
Quake 3 Arena is here ...
