    Playing on a uneven,surface

    If my mousepad was placed over a bump and the whole thing was uneven slightly would it affect my play. i'd think it would. What if there was a thick mousepad over it?

    That would drive me crazy, and not just for Quake. I suppose if the pad was thick enough to iron it out - I'm thinking of the Princess and the pea...

    Yes it would. If you have very little space on your desk, you can try to learn playing russian style, which means that you holding the keyboard in your lap (below the desk). Give it a few weeks, perhaps it will "work" for you.

    That would be intolerable.

    Qck heavy might fix it, depending on the severity.

    How big does the bump have to be before the qck mass can't fix it?

    Save yourself a lot of pain and frustration and get a proper desk. If you can afford a computer to play quake you can afford some furniture to play it on.

    I've played QL on a couch several times. It only causes slight problems when people are moving on it though. However, I also am a high-sens player, so that might be one reason it's not as big of an issue

    I know it sounds elitist, but if you can't afford a table nor a working computer then you shouldn't be playing videogames.
