Q3a is a very fast game!,and you have to think very fast,
so If you feel the bots are playing too fast for u, there are two ways:
(1) slow down the bot thinking speed by changing "\bot_thinktime" to more
than 200. More than 500 and the bots will be very stupid even in Nightmare!
(2) Speed up your thinking speed: enable cheats (\spdevmap q3dm4), play
with \timescale , 1 is default 2 is double the time speed (0.5 is too slow)
0.7 is good to try .
-when time is slow you can avoid rockets easier and aim better with the rail gun.
so you can record a game "\record" in slow mode and play very good.
then play the recorded game "/play [ Cheat:

There is a glitch in his targeting system! He can rail you twice at
any Distance or use his BFG to fry you, but, if you grab a railgun
and move behind the pillar next to it...you can inch very slowly to
the point where you can see the boost pad on the other side of the
map without exposing your entire body. If you do it just right...
You can score at least 3 frags on Xzearo. Unfortunately the computer
allows him to respawn near you. If this happens...grab the newly
spawned rail gun (so he can't) and run like hell to the boost pad.
When you reach the far side...Hide behind the pillar and keep railing
him as soon as he tries to use the boost pad after you. With luck, he
won't spawn behind you much, and you will be able to pick him off
enough to meet the frag limit.

While playing the game bring up the console by pressing (~) and type:
/cg_drawfps 1 to view the frames per second
/cg_fov to change the field of view
/cg_thirdperson 1 to play in third person mode
/record to record a game
/stoprecord to stop recording
To get all the console commands go to:
Note 1: when typing a console command press tab to see
all commands that begin with the same letter.
Note 2: The file pak0.pk3 in \baseq3 in the game directory is a zip file
none compression; you can open it with winzip, extract a file, edit it, then
add it and replace it with the old one with none compression......enjoy.
But be sure to make a backup.

bring down the quake 3 console by pressing the "~" key and then type the fallowing line
\bind x "\kill"
where x is any key of your choice
now during game play if you press the key 'x'. Then you will die your self. Thus you
can prevent others from fraging you in a mulitplayer game when time is critical
