Met up with Cliche last night on the server and he asked if I had defrag. I said "yes". He gave me a server IP to go to and I D/L the map but kept getting kicked after "Gamestate....". Is defrag a mod?? I have a defrag folder in my my q3 folder. Thanks.
Here's the ip: 22.214.171.124:27961

Haha yes it is, actually I am playing that most of all mods, it's so chilled.
Go here and then click Defrag 1.91.08 new version of defrag.
Well then put the defrag folder into your q3 directory and you're done. If you want to download maps.. there are maybe 5000 defrag maps or so, here the new ones are posted and you can search for them too: Jamster's defrag map engine (new maps are made everyday)

Yes it's a tricking mod. Hey and the public even likes kiddies playing that rather than fragging each others asses off. There has been a defrag q3 movie of the infinite trajectory tricking clan on German tv two years ago!
I suggest you to watch this defrag movie to get an idea of how it's like, hope you'll enjoy the movie. This time you only need windows media player to open it
Like Auri, I love my Quake III movies - I collect all the main releases.
I thoroughly enjoy the Defrag movies and maps. However the skills these guys use are SUPREME! These are the top players and any attempts to replicate ANYTHING they do - will result in MUCH frustration and kicking of the cat - or pc (if like me you don't actually own a cat)
Im not saying don't try... but seriously... if you can't strafe properly or don't know what a circle-jump is you're unlikely to make it to the end of the first corridor.
Defrag is for the Hoody's of this world.
I love watching - I burn the movies to DVD and watch them on tv- but 'my goodness' it ain't easy.
Just thought I'd warn ya - go enjoy the movies first. wolfie

People, read the post before this one again, Wolfie is totally right, you might get frusti if you don't know what a circle jump is or how to strafe. I rarely see anybody using those techniques in insta anyway.
Or does anyone know what skim, half beat and overbounce mean? Sure I bet some do. Hard to do these things. I learned them all and I love playing defrag, I always play it with music of course, like normal quake too and it's so chilled because the only opponent you're facing is yourself.
Defrag never interested me. I prefer to frag then trick jump.Its the same as clans that play q3dm17 1v1 exclusively. If you play the same map over and over and over for hours on end ,day after day, your bound to get good at playing that particular map or maps.Sure these people in the movies you mentioned are skilled at what they are doing ,but they didnt get that way having a real life.They spend the majority of their days in front of the computer playing Defrag. I've been down that road.Ask my Ex-Wife how she feels about Q3A. I used to be one mean fragger and can honestly say I could have gone pro. I dont devote that much time to quake anymore. I'm quite happy having a life outside of the game now a days.

I think it's quite prejudiced saying defraggers don't have real lives. Do you say that? I understood it like that. Well I do play defrag and I don't spend my life getting good at it, I play it for fun. Same with insta and every other mod. There are players who do it for fun and it doesn't have anything to do with the mod you play I think. A defragger could say all fraggers only want to become pro and earn money so they spend all your life in front of the comp.
So I don't get that point, defrag is just a usual mod
I'm not saying all Defraggers (or any other mod) ,I'm saying the ones that are extremely good at playing any video game has been spending 8 or more hours a day and all day on weekends playing the game or games of thier choice.I'm not being prejudiced .Like I said I've been down that road and when you have a job working 40 to 60 hours a week and spend 8 hours or more a day playing games on the computer, you have no life. It tends to piss off your wife or girl friend if the individual has one. I do not have an exwife because she enjoyed my gaming habit. So from my point of view it not being prejudiced ,its a truth.

Hmmmm, maybe that would explain why I haven't seen Missy for days.... are you saying, maybe she left me? Hmmm, I will have to look for her later, back to gaming!
Oh, and Johnny (Auri) is German, and alot of the times things get lost in translation. Johnny, you are a very gifted player, us other guys have to work to be as good. Soo, I understand Kaustics point, and yours. Remember, you are the talented one my son.

I apologize for having been a bit rude maybe, I don't want to be like that. Might have had a bit bad mood or so.
Lost in translation - often true, I cannot express myself well And did anybody watch the movie Lost In Translation? One of my favorites.
I am trying to do things well Jeff, but I am not as talented as it might seem to you. For a very long time already I try to finish 1. my site 2. my movie 3. music mixes .. I don't find motivation to do any of them and when I started at them I noticed I am not as good as many others.
No I am not irritated with you at all Auri. I understand you are from Germany and was trying to make my point a little bit clearer.Some people are better at doing some things then others and may not have to work quite as hard to accomplish thier goals ,but even the gifted ones have to work hard to achieve what it is they are trying to accomplish. Auri ,you are making a q3 movie? If so then I am guessing you have quite a bit of time you have put into it. I am thinking I should jump right in there with Jeff and do some cheering on myself. I would like to see the finished movie .
Thank you a lot. For some entertainment (maybe) you could have a look at my older movies, I already made 4: auri.q3mm.de/ Find them in the left upper corner called aurivolution, gonzi, biatch tricking and test_video. Test_video, sigh, what a silly name.. but hey I was learning and wanted to test quality and colors of mine
I am working on this one since about 16 months now but of course not constantly. I made Aurivolution 1 in 10 hours and this already takes so long and what I have now is all footage in great quality in .avi, 3 soundtracks and many ideas. I have to edit it all but I don't really know where to start so it takes some more time or maybe even some some some some more time
Yes I understand how you feel Auri. I have a map I've been working on for more than a year. Doing some work on it, then making changes because something didnt work out the way I wanted. Jeff has a copy of it.Although what he has and what I have right now looks completely different because GktRadiant had a major malfunction while I was working on the map and I ended up with a map with no textures, lighting or map models(things like teleporters, tourches are map models). So I decided to retexture the map and made numerous changes. I think I am getting close to being done. I placed weapons,ammo and pickups in the map and made an aas file(is what bots use for map navigation) to test it with bots. I think it needs more health and ammo and I may change some of the weapon placements. .
