Dan5 pm'ed me on IRC about a little script he made for zooming
- Generates a zoom script for you so you can use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out. I use it, and ppl call hax on me because I outzoom them!
It even takes in account changes to sensitivity so that if you zoom, movement won't weird out on you.

Prompted by a thread on the QuakeLive forums asking if there were any programs with syntax highlighting for editing QL configs, and the fact that there isn't, I just went off and made a custom language file for Notepad++.
I went through the configs from the games I play, and added in some extra things to make those work too. It's not perfect and I'm no guru, but it's better than just plain old black text on a white background. The colours need tweaked, but they're workable at the moment.
So yeah, this should provide rough syntax highlighting for your game config files in Notepad++. Screenshots:
Tested with configs from:
- Quake 3 CPMa
- Call of Duty 2
- Call of Duty 4
- Counter-Strike 1.6
- Counter-Strike: Source

Any suggestions in the comments, please!
Since the original link died and the file was lost, Reeload69 has created an alternative file for Notepad++,

I love it when people take on a project that tackles the difficulty for new players - or just makes it easy for the lazy - by creating something for their favorite game. Namad is such a person who started working on Visual HUD: a Quake Live online HUD generator.
I can relate to such projects, when releasing my first version of the config generator, I had to fix a huge amount of bugs, in little spare time, with almost weekly updates and changes to the commands and variables in Quake Live. That was even during closed beta. I can only cheer for a fellow gamer who took the bull by the horns in releasing a HUD generator. And when that person asks me to promote this thing, of course I will spam it wherever I can.
So, you want to use a custom HUD in QuakeLive and aren't sure how? This is an easy to follow guide on how to get and install a custom HUD. Finding and using a custom HUD in QuakeLive is simple!
Some things about the existing config generator could use some improvement (such as it being crammed into a small column) so I decided to renew it and at the same time make it even more userfriendly by adding a couple of features:
- Preview weapon style images (due long time)
- A keyboard that maps your bind layout and allows you to drag/drop to bind keys to input fields. Check it out!
- Expanded the rail options (also have a look at the Rail settings post I made.)
- Generate a subset of values like only controls or only graphical settings
