How To Install Version Switcher for Quake 3 Arena
***Not Tested on Steam***
Killer Collective plays on version 1.16n the first updated version of quake 3
If you are installing from CD and want to have the latest version but play 1.16 also this topic is more for you I think. I don't have the steam version and am unable to test if this functions or not.

Link for switcher:
Link for Quake 3 update to 1.16n: ... se-116n-pc
Link for Quake 3 updates to 1.32 and 1.32c:
Quake 3 Arena MUST be updated to the latest version 1.32c before using version switcher.

Assuming you have your game at the latest version 1.32c, place ofxq3switch205f.exe onto your desktop and launch. Follow the prompt and direct installation to your Quake 3 folder, There is no button to continue, press ENTER on your keyboard to continue. Once the file is installed into your quake directory, use the Q3Switch.exe to launch your game and select the version you want to play. Voila you can play any version of quake 3!

Note: Custom themes that worked before the install don't seem to apply any longer after using the version switcher. Custom maps/character skins SHOULD work, but may not. More testing required..
