New Quake III Patch

One letter removed from the last of course

Texas patch masters Id Software have released Quake III version 1.29g for Windows and Linux. The patch weighs in at an inordinate 26Mb and "should upgrade any previous release of Quake 3 or Team Arena". Thankfully, for those who downloaded the 1.29f release, the AutoUpdater tool can be used to upgrade to the latest version, resulting in a much smaller transfer. According to the official website, a number of small changes have taken place. The website lists these problems as "what has changed since the last release," but we're guessing they mean these problems have been fixed!

Players joining (and apparently leaving) the game cause everyone to hitch
