       quake3 - Quake III Arena client


       quake3 [-h|--help] [-q|--quiet] [debugging options] [+set option value]...


       quake3 is the client for Quake III Arena, a multiplayer network game.


       The wrapper script used for Quake III Arena in Debian accepts these options:

       -h, --help
              Display a short help summary

       -q, --quiet
              Disable all console output

       --demo Run the demo version, even if the full game is installed

              Prepend a debugger or other prefix (such as strace) to the engine command line

              Use  gdb(1)  to  get  a  backtrace  if  the engine crashes (the gdb package must be

       Additionally, if quake3 is run via a symbolic link whose  name  is  quake3-team-arena,  it
       will  play  the  expansion  pack, Quake III Team Arena. This requires that additional data
       files are installed. Similarly, a symbolic link named quake3-demo  is  equivalent  to  the
       --demo option.

       Any  console  command can also be prefixed with + and used as a command-line option (press
       Shift+Esc to access the in-game console), including:

       +set option value
              Set an option (see below for some options)

       +connect server[:port]
              Connect to a server
