Windows 7 Instructions

1. Right-click on desktop background, go to New -> Shortcut
2. Find the program you want to create a shortcut for. In our case, it is r1q2.exe or quake2.exe


3. Name the shortcut.


4. Right-click on shortcut, go to Properties
5. Add +game lmctf to the target. You must do this outside of the double-quoted target path. In my case, it looks like this:

"C:\Steam\steamapps\common\quake 2\r1q2.exe" +game lmctf


6. Click ok and you can now launch straight into LMCTF.

Command line parameters

Examples of additional parameters and practical uses in a r1q2.exe or quake2.exe shortcut.

Start LMCTF offline (useful for tweaking settings locally):

"C:\Steam\steamapps\common\quake 2\r1q2.exe" +set vid_ref r1gl +set game lmctf +set deathmatch 1 +exec server.cfg

Start LMCTF and connect to Erebus public server:

"C:\Steam\steamapps\common\quake 2\r1q2.exe" +set vid_ref r1gl +set game lmctf +connect

Start LMCTF and connect to Erebus match server and pass the match password on connect (right-click shortcut, select properties and edit password each time):

"C:\Steam\steamapps\common\quake 2\r1q2.exe" +set vid_ref r1gl +set game lmctf +connect +set password password
