Q2 Lithium
« on: March 03, 2015, 03:22:14 AM »
I don't know in which section to place this but...

I'm an old player from the active years around 1999 till 2003... (nicks: AmpLiF1eR , Da_Vampire, BlackDevil)
I was a skilled q2 lithium player, mostly on Xs4all and the server was always full 24/7.
I managed to get the second position on CLQ for q2 lithium (which means I had no life at the time lol) and we were the leader for the Netherlands on clanbase with the clan The Gifted Ones [TG1].
(also played for DreamLordZ ~DL~ / The Lithium Team [TLT] / Alpha Force [A.F] / Multimedia M][M / Unwanted AngelZ [UA] )

I have never enjoyed vanilla DM, because the hook added an extra  speed and skill element in the game so the FPH was usually much higher than in regular DM for the guy with the top position (if used for killing and avoiding shots and not just to grab that railgun on a high platform, it's so much more than that), if you have really skilled lithium players, it will look like an air combat game with F16 fighters shooting from air, lithium players know exactly what I mean. If you miss an elevator or spawn too far from the battle spot,   it can often mean you can't win anymore because you'll miss that extra frag needed :)
For that reason, q2 looks almost death to me, those times are gone, now it's all plain dm and q3a has no active lithium-like mods, there have been one (excessive with hook) but it was never a real success, q3a has the machinegun as default so you always have the fire button pressed all the time, hoping that someone gets killed when you spawn, I hate it to be honest.

I did play on q2.rlogin.dk but wasnt satisfied with those way too easy dumb bots that blast eachother and I didnt feel a challenge at all so has started my own servers, also that server is somewhat malicious by forcing download , even when disabled on my side, so felt motived to start my own, 9 servers now check it out: http://q2lithium.com :)

Personally I'm so fond of baseq2 movement/physics/jumps that I didn't like to go on hook servers, because it made my favorite part of the game irrelevant. :)

But I definitely recall being impressed that some players really learned to move skillfully with the hook.


I do play on q2.rlogin.dk which is one of the 2 active lithium servers left and on my own server : q2lithium.tk which has eraserultra bots (+ mapvoting when 2 real players are active as minimum) which automatically fill the spots till real players connect.

My own server has all the single player maps as well so I prefer it above the other one which only have q2dm1 t/m 8 but for some reason, I dont see real players lately :/

I miss the old times of q2 lithium. please join q2lithium.tk :)

Are you familiar with our GOTO / INVITE system?

If a Q2 server is running WallFly, you can invite other players to join your game, and everyone playing on all servers on the network sees your invite, and can GOTO your server.

Might help bring some players over when you're wanting a game.

I guess you are not using Quake II server browser http://r-1.ch/qsb-beta3.zip or http://q2servers.com/

Crap movement was in Lithium  but Lithium II have awesome movement (imagine flying with fast hook over  tokay towers arenas or over Edge arenas railing like flayer)

yes I do, my server is listed there as well (q2lithium.com > based on OSP Tourney with r1q2, all maps, voting and observe/chase modes enabled and bots to keep 8 players minimal, bot leaves when player connects )

Yes, if you're fortunate to have one of the new RTX video cards. (I don't, so I'm watching people stream raytraced Q2 on twitch instead.)
