    Thought I would post these files up. I made them some time ago, they contain a lot of tweaks to help with all sorts of stuff including loading times, specular tweaks, visual improvements (enhanced bump mapping etc) and a bunch of other stuff. if its popular i might make some enhancements, in which case just make some suggestions and ill add stuff at random. install files to your q4base folder.
    Zek says-
    Make sure to copy all the files the Q4 engine folder replaces, or else you'll be having some fun figuring out what to do if you don't like the mod.

    Did some of those myself, & here is their content (compare & contrast w/ Ketxxx's)

    Before you apply this one's settings wholesale (or, piece by piece), OR Ketxxx's?

    BACKUP YOUR Quak4Config.cfg & Autoexec.cfg files under the Q4BASE Folder, first... make copies!

    Here we go:

    APK Quake 4 SMP AutoExec.cfg file:

    //---------------------------------------------------
    //G R A P H I C S - APK Added per various guides, & tweaked more for NVIDIA GeForce
    //---------------------------------------------------
    seta com_fixedTic "1" //seta type commandline is for config.cfg, not autoexec.cfg iirc...apk
    set com_fixedTic "1" //Lines above remove 60fps framerate cap default by IDSoftware... apk

    Call me an idiot, but I kinda liked the old engine better (new one reminds me of Vista too much :p). The enhancements just looks ugly to me. How do I change it back?
    Edit- I spent some quality time with the Q4 DVD and fixed it myself :).

    Ah, I was going to post that you SHOULD ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL Quake 4 AutoExec.cfg &/or Quake4Config.cfg files... first!

    Ah, no sweat... we've all done it, & you @ least had the sense to know how to "unjam" yourself!

    * ONE good thing happened: I edited my post to include that, backup your Quake 4 .cfg files!

    Bah!

    You're all "afraid" to do this "NuKLeAr" Level of tweaking to your Quake 4 SMP 1.3 game it seems...

    :)

    LOL!

    * It takes "intestinal-fortitude" gents, it truly does...

    APK

    P.S.=> It really does work well to mess w/ this game's configuration files though... @ least it did for me! Took me a LONG time to get right though, some of the settings ARE graphics card & system RAM present, & it's a LONG file that AutoExec.cfg for Quake 4... read carefully & match it to YOUR system! apk
