If I wanted to make a backup copy of my Quake 4 disk using Alcohol 120%, what are the setting I need to use to make a copy. I'm using D/L disk and tryed it once and it only wrote about 100k to the disk.

Can someone help me out with this...

Thanks for you time...

Not that I would waste another dime on such a garbage game, but you cant just fire up alcohol and make a copy. You need to do a hotswap and use the tools whose threads are located elsewhere on this forum.

Hotswap meaning unscrewing the top of your dvd drive on your PC and swapping discs by hand.

Quake 4 is one of the better games on teh 360. I really liked it. If you din't like it well...be disappointed with Gears of War comes out. Similar FPS, better story with better graphics. Hey, it's better than PD0.

I knew I shouldhave worn my phear hat. What I meant was Quake4 is so poorly optimized for the 360 that it doesnt deserve any praise.

First we get Doom3 on the xbox1 which does the impossible and does it extremely well (constant 30fps smoothness), then the same engine gets ported over to this several times more powerful system by some morons who leave all the inherent bugs intact (like the fixedtic stutter of the doom engine) and spend no time whatsoever optimizing it for performance, and it ends up stuttering and slowing down so bad its just criminal. Criminal towards IDs legacy of quality engines and criminal towards the customer.

Any hater who has seen doom3 on the xbox1 and then looks at quake4 will draw the conclusion that the game looks almost exactly the same yet runs like crap, hence the 360 is a POS. Thats not good for our favorite console.

But you still ask for seconds, and I hope and PREY that game isnt going to be even buggier if the average gamer has no critisism or demand for quality.

What the hell are you trying to say? GOW isnt a FPS! Dont speculate on a game that isnt even playable. Then again im not sure what the hell youre talking about? uhh.gif sleeping.gif
