OS: Fedora 16
ioquake3: ioquake3-1.36-7.1.x86_64

If, after installing ioquake3 and copying pak0.pk3 and pak8.pk3 from Quake 3 Arena original CD to ioquake3/baseq3 of your installation folder, you can’t see any bot playing, do the following:

  • unzip pak0.pk3 from baseq3 folder
  • enter botfiles directory
  • rename chars.h to charsh”
  • zip all files you have extracted
  • rename from .zip to .pk3

    Hi, there is a typo (missing “h”) in your instructions.
    The file needs to be renamed to charsh” (not to carsh”)
