Update: the id master server is back online, the in-game server browser is working again. We will continue to look for a way to work around it in the event of future extended downtime. Our original post appears below. If you’ve tried to play multiplayer Quake 3 using the original id Quake 3 binaries or… Continue reading The id Master Server is Back Online (Updated)
Two major updates have come to desktop and laptop computing recently. OS X 10.11 El Capitan and Windows 10.

The folks from the open platform for building, shipping, and running distributed applications called Docker demonstrated a containerized version of ioquake3 at Dockercon. Not just the server, but also the client. Docker’s Arnaud “icecrime” Porterie even called ioquake3 “The best game ever” in their dockerfile description. I don’t think I could be more proud. They… Continue reading ioquake3… in Docker?!

Fabian Sanglard: I was particularly impressed by : The virtual machines system and the associated toolchain that altogether account for 30% of the code released.
