Will the Assassin work with Zerstörer -
Testament of the Destroyer
The Assassin 3D will work with
Zerstörer, unfortunately it seems that it will not
automatically exec the config files. I have tried to
have the config files in the ZER and in the ID1
directories with no luck in getting them to execute
automatically. The only suggestion I have is to
manually execute the adva3d.cfg file from the console
in the game after the map loads. This will work for
online games as well as local games.
When I type in
exec adva3d.cfg the game just locks up, Help !
There was a problem with the supplied
file when it was edited with Notepad. It has been
fixed and updated Click
Here to get a new copy. Save it to
your id1 directory and try again. If you need to edit
the adva3d.cfg file try using wordpad or the DOS
based EDIT program.
In WinQuake my
game character just scrolls to the left (or right). or If
your view hits the floor, or the ceiling and refuses to
stay looking forward.
The only time
we have seen this is when the units need to be
calibrated. You are talking about WinQuake (this applies to all Windows Versions
of Quake) so that means
that you need to calibrate through the Game
Controllers in Control Panel. While calibrating make
sure you get to the top and bottom of the little
windows, especially the A3D U/D & A3D L/R. You
can spin it real fast (sometimes too fast can
actually skip and not work) but you do need to get to
the top and bottom. make sure that after you
calibrate go into the test and make sure it seems ok.
Then Apply before you click OK to close ame
Controllers. Also make sure that you have the current
DirectX 5 files installed and Updated.
I set up Quake
using alaunch, but Quake still asks me to calibrate the
This is quite
rare and can happen when you run the DOS and Windows
versions of Quake. What you will need to do is add
the -nojoy parameter to the command line for the DOS
i.e. alaunch quake -nojoy
You can also just tap
escape when you see this message.
I've set up
WinQuake and it seems like all I can do is walk, how do I
versions of quake do not use the qbtns commands like
the DOS version. You will want to set up WinQuake
with always run turned
on (options menu). You
may need to execute these commands to turn on fast
speeds. From the console... CL_FORWARDSPEED 900, CL_SIDESPEED
900, CL_BACKSPEED 900.
the number 900 was given to me by another quake
player, the servers will turn you down to their max
speed, usually 360-400.
How do I set up Windows versions of Quake
if I want to invert the Assassin 3D or invert the
direction I move the trackball to look up?
There is a new ADVA3D.CFG file with
notes on how to do this. If you would like more
information on the advanced Quake controller
Here for the HTML version which has
links to get a MS-Word 7.0 version and the basic Text
When playing Quake
World I notice that when I fire the Rocket Launcher it
will delay before firing, what can I do?
This is usually caused by latency
(better known as lag), Check out Quake
World Central for help on setting up
Quake World to help reduce the latency.
When I click the
fire a single rocket button the game says unknown command
and states the command, what can I do?
You will need
to check your quake config files for the alias
rl_dbsg. This alias is included in your assassin.cfg
file that should have been copied to your quake\id1
directory, it goes like this... alias rl_dbsg. "impulse 7 ;
+attack ; wait ; -attack ; impulse 3"
If you find it in your assassin.cfg you need to bring
up the console and type in exec assassin.cfg or you
can rename assassin.cfg to autoexec.cfg and it will
execute automatically. Or you can add the line
"exec assassin.cfg" to your autoexec.cfg
WinQuake and when I move the trackball to either side I
just Strafe instead of look.
Easy one there,
while in WinQuake tap the Escape key to bring up the
main menu. Select Options and you will notice that
"Look Strafe" is turned on. It will just
need to be turned off.
Help, I just
installed Quake World and when I use the hat on my
joystick I get a message Unknown Keynum...
You will need to upgrade to the
latest version of Quake World. Visit either Quakeworld
Central or Quakeworld.net
I set up WinQuake
(Quake World) and I see "FPgaming Assassin 3D
configured" but the assassin still doesn't work?
Quake World ship with the Joystick disabled, to
enable it, bring up the console using the tilde and
type in "joystick 1". You will only need to do this
one time as it will be saved in your CONFIG.CFG file
