I played the game again. It does not run halfly as good as q3a here. My computer is usually very good, but even on 1024x768 it stutters often. I guess the game has too many open-room levels with thousands of objects in them. Also, I did not really understand how to play and it all got too colored for me. I uninstalled it again.

Actually got round to playing this the other day - mainly because it was a freebie on the PC Gamer magazine disk. It's okay - although it seems to be a fairly simple mod really - just replace the vanilla weapons in q3 with something that looks different but plays the same - there's virtually a 1 to 1 equivalent. There is no single player - although you can practice by making a LAN server and filling it with bots. The maps are big and at least they've got plenty of players. It basically plays as a combo of headhunter from Team Q3A (or as seen in the wonderful 'Corkscrew' mod) and 1 flag CTF. Most players on the servers seem a bit noobie to me (which is saying something). I understand that the Q3A engine is now freeware - so there will be loads of legit standalone games like this no doubt in the near future.
i find padmod quite fun. once you learn the gameplay. My system doesnt do toobad running it. I gotta run low graphics to hit about 90-110 fps. Ive yet to hit 125. then again i got a crappy nvidea 6150le vid card i need to save me 200 dollars and get a good one im thinkin nvidea 8800 dx10 728mb i think is teh spec. sounds like a nice card.
