This beta patch upgrades Quake 4 from v1.04 to v1.05.
This update is recommended for Windows users with Intel Hyper-Threading
Technology (HT Technology) enabled processors, multiple processors, or systems
with a dual core processor. The update is also required for Windows and Linux
server admins as it addresses a recently identified problem with servers left
unoccupied for very long periods of time (these servers will appear to be
operating normally, but will crash clients that attempt to connect to them).
This update will bring any previous version of the game (1.0.0 or 1.0.4) up to
date and will not affect pure server, PunkBuster compatibility or protocol
id Software and Raven have worked with Intel to dramatically improve QUAKE 4
performance on systems with HT Technology, multiple processors, or dual core
processors. Players who have a system with one of these configurations will
notice performance gains in QUAKE 4 of anywhere from 25% - 87% depending on
processor type. If you do not know whether or not you have a multi-processor,
dual core, or HT Technology enabled system, please see the ReadMe file for
simple instructions on checking your system. Please use the form at
