    I run ZA Pro and play Quake 3 as well without any problems. I either add the Quake 3 exe to the programs section in ZA manually or let ZA ask to let it act as a server or access the net.

    back in the day when i only had the free version of ZA, i would connect to the interenet, open up my game, and do something that would require the game to connect to the interenet( clicking multiplayer). It would give me a black screen of death. so i'd reboot, then go into ZA and manually click "connect to interenet-yes; act as a server-yes" then i went off to play my game.

    i have ZAP now so when ever i want to play a new game i set the program-thing to "learning mode".

    i had issues with ZA and q3 online... the mouse would jus go off in its own merry world... half the time, id turn a corner and end up spinnin around an finishing looking up at the ceiling before splatting into bits cuz some fool has shot me in a moment of madness.

    Norton Personal Firewall sorted the problems... I tried sygate but it gave me packet loss big time. Might try tiny personal firewall sometime soon... but norton seems the best atm.
