When you finally located your Quake Live config, you will be confronted with two game config files, i.e. qzconfig.cfg and repconfig.
To be quite honest it’s a bit silly to have two config files even. Therefore, I’ve got my own method to work with my Quake Live config. I’ll run you through it step by step.
- First of all, start Quake Live, join a server, open console and type /writeconfig yourname.cfg. This way you will have all comments stored in one configfile and it’s easier to work.
- Go back to your config folder and create an extra config file autoexec.cfg. In this file you should only put exec “yourname.cfg”.
- Start Quake live again, join a game, open console and type /exec autoexec.
From now on, everytime you start Quake Live, it will run yourname.cfg
- (you should probably skip this part)
clear your qzconfig.cfg and repconfig.cfg completely and then put them on read only. By doing this, you make sure yourname.cfg will never interfere with any other config. I am not 100% sure if this step is necessary, I just do this for extra security reasons.
You are now ready to start customizing your yourname.cfg for an optimal gaming experience.
