rogue had bad tags, I am reuploading. 
Err, Hipnotic I Mean... 
 
Music 
What are some of the solutions for new music in quake mods right now? I'm sure whatever you picked would make you reliant on a particular engine if you wanted anything more than just a looping .wav file. 
Not That I Would Know 
but an mp3 parser in qc could be possible... 
Parsing Files 
QC requires several engine extension to parse text files, an mp3 parser is a lot further than that. There is a darkplaces engine extension that allows "fake" cd tracks. Put files in:
sound/cdtracks/track001.wav
and it'll play as track 1. You can also use .ogg files in place of wav - mp3 isn't supported as you can't get a GPL decoder for mp3.

As an aside, the original quake soundtrack was distributed with the shareware CD anyway, so I doubt there will be much complaint about it. 
Mm 
Good point about the ogg thing. My fantasy is to be able to trigger a musical cue in-game, which would require entity stuff on the QC side and ogg stuff engine-side, and then worrying about how/when to precache the music ...

I had kind of thought that I might wind up including a custom Fitzquake with lunsp2, and new reasons keep mounting to do so, but I didn't think anyone would mind since Marcher had its own engine and nobody really complained. (Although the awesomeness of marcher helped, so I'll have to aim high :) ) 
Hey 
Wheres a good resource for Q2 maps? Tenfour seems to be fucked... 
Planet Phillip 
has most of the maps and has some reviews. Shame about 10-4, its downloads have been broke for over a month now 
Woohoo, I'm A Genius! 
http://3ddownloads.com/telefragged/tenfourmaps/q1

There is the original building.zip
I think handsy2k.zip and quadquak.zip are "lost" maps too at least I never heard of them. 
Good Find 
Quadquak is in any idgames2 mirror, though; partial_conversions. 
Heh 
No wonder I never heard of quadquak and handsy2k. Both are quite interesting mods, nothing for me. 
CETME 
Thanks for the building.zip. My email isn't working since two days, so I haven't been able to retrieve the file yet. 
No Problem AguirRe 
And I'm glad you found that file repository Spirit - even looking at old verisions of ten-four on the wayback machine wasn't working because of the way the ten-four website was written. 
Dont Know Anything 
about this other than what is written here:

http://www.planetphillip.com/posts/time-of-reckoning-retail/

I tried checking QuakeTerminus to see if it is a broadly known product, but QT seems to be down for the count.

I would be highly surprised if there wasn't someone or many people who visit this forum who are not being commercially exploited by this. 
This Is A Long Shot, But... 
I've just moved to a different city, and before I moved I reformatted and put in a new hard drive. Don't worry I still have all my in-progress maps.

But I no longer have the software CD which came with my 3d card (ATI Radeon 9800 pro - kinda old, I know). Apparently you cannot download this original driver/software set from ATI's site, you can only download upgrades to it, which are worth exactly shit all with nothing to upgrade from. So basically, functionally I _have_ no 3d card. For a company I gave $500 to these guys sure are helpful.

If anyone's got the same card and wants to do me a giant favour, put the cd up for download somewhere? 
Tronyn 
Wow, that is insane! I am skeptical though that their Catalyst drivers don't work for the 9800...? What happens when you try to install it? 
Yeah... 
I just finished looking through their site for a second time trying to find a single email address listed for customer concerns, and have come to the conclusion that their website is the biggest example of bureaucratic shit online that I've ever come across. Yes, get rid of simple queries by listing FAQs and having troubleshooters, but JESUS CHRIST, there's nothing there but redundant loops of links that lead nowhere. What a bunch of cocks. 
Well, I Can't Install It 
because I don't have the CD. lol.

I can download and install upgrades, but that doesn't do anything. 
Tronyn 
So you're talking about the driver file windows' installer uses? 
I've Got 
A 9250 - but that's no help.

And all the shit that was auto-installed (and I had to remove) means I'll never buy any of thier technology again. 
Maybe This Could Help 
HeadThump 
That CD is from 2004, not new. I'd like to see a copy too though.

It was not at Quake Terminus I am sure.

And Quake Terminus is not gone, Megazoid changed the host and it seems to take a while. :) 
That's Good

That's good. I was looking for it cause Megazoid was always noted when mods were a bit (or alot!;)) in his notes about the, and I wondered if he might have already had this listed. 
Mark Out The 'was' 
and place 'sketchy' there after 'a bit'.

My spell check hand is too busy searching for Hudgens nude pics to be of any help today. 
Tronyn 
All I can suggest is what aguirRe already said... try sites like oldversion.com to see if they have any drivers for you there.

Seriously though, why can't you just use the latest release? It lists 9800 as one of the supported chipsets. The driver selection page is here, you can see that they have a driver available for your card:

http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

Unless you're not using XP or Vista, I don't see the problem. Note that if you are using windows 98/ME they also have a "legacy" option there in the OS menu.

It seems like you can't really go wrong.. I mean all they really offer is a full driver package that supports every card under the sun. It can't really get any easier than that!
