Introducing Weapons Factory Arena HD!

The Weapons Factory Arena community is very excited to announce Weapons Factory Arena HD v1.0!

WFA HD includes a massive overhaul to textures and graphics to bring WFA into the modern age of high resolution gaming. The release also includes five new maps, a redesigned HUD, and changes to the assassin class to truly make it an offensive asset.

If you’re a new or returning WFA player who needs to setup the game, join us on Discord and then head on over to the Downloads page to grab the new single file installer.

Here’s a few comparisons of WFA vs. WFA HD. Click the links below for a larger view.

If you already have WFA installed, simply use Quake3e to connect to one of our servers and ensure /cl_allowdownload is set to 1. Your Q3e client will download the needed files and drop you into the game once completed.

Be sure to join us on Discord so you can get help, chat with the community, join us on voice, and enjoy a cap and frag fest on our Wednesday & Sunday games (8 p.m. Eastern-US / 5 p.m. Pacific-US).

The entire community would like to make a huge shout out to Zeus, Injate, and A Sniper for their continued contributions of new maps, textures, and game updates to make this possible.

Demo/Video Recording

Here are a few useful console commands for recording demos and subsequent videos in iOQuake3. Note that iOQ3 (Windows) stores the data in %appdata%\Quake3\wfa.


cl_autoRecordDemoRecord a new demo on each map change
cl_aviFrameRateChoose the framerate for the video
recordStart recording a demo
stoprecordStop recording the demo
videoStart recording an AVI of the demo
stopvideoStops recording the AVI of the demo has been procured and redirects here. The primary goal of obtaining the domain is to shorten the amount of typing needed in the console. i.e., /connect to isn’t so great to type. /connect is easier. Or i’m just lazy. Probably just lazy.


Ref Commands!

It can be hard to remember all of these. Most are found in the WFA menu, but more often than not, it’s faster to use the console command. Here they are:

ref_password password Makes you the ref
ref_warmup Sets the warm-up time
ref_clearscore Clears the scores
ref_matchmode on|off Lifts class limits, cap limit to 99
ref_restartmap Restarts the current map
ref_observer playername|id|all Force the person into observer
ref_nextmap mapname Sets the next map
ref_map mapnameChanges the current map
ref_matchtime Changes the match time
ref_caplimit Changes the cap limit
ref_leave Leave ref
ref_kick id|nameKick a player
ref_gametype ctf|cp Change between capture the flag or command point mode
