I have taken this text from the list of changes in the new Point Release for Quake 3

NEW NETWORK CODE - There is a new compression system built into the network code of the latest point release. Essentially, this reduces the bandwidth usage of Quake 3 and Team Arena by a ratio of 5:1 :eek: over previous versions of the game. Modem players, as well as everyone else, should experience a significant improvement in internet game play because of this.

He! I'm happy to hear that, because I saw severe lag in Q3A even with a cablemodem :(

That is great to know because LEC should add this special code to the JediOutcast engine... or a lot of fans wont be happy. ;)
