I Know this Sounds Daft, but....

Archived from groups: alt.games.quake2 (More info?)

Just did a format, and my Q2 folder was about the only thing I forget to
put in my other partition (dozy bastard), so reinstalling everything
etc.

Now, its been a while since I've done this so, when you install CTF, do
put it as its own folder within q2 or does it go in the baseq2 folder?
(God that sounds bad, feel free to flame me at will, I deserve it...)

    CTF should go in the ctf folder under Quake2. I don't remember if you have
    control of the desination path when you install it or not. The folder
    should contain a couple of .cfg files, pak0.pak, ctf2.ico, gamex86.dll and a
    readme.txt.

    The ctf mod was included with one of the q2 updates.

    Should be in pak1.pak, right?

    Ta everyone, got it sorted, even managed to get the bots sorted. One
    more question, anyone know the commands for the bots to invade the enemy
    base, defend the flag etc? Tried planetquake but without success.
