Dude, this is totally awesome!

I am curious about whether this could be made playable. I guess this is a long 
shot given that you demonstrated this on low resolutions only. Then again - 
you were capturing a movie at the same time which probably had a considerable 
impact on the framerate.

FYI: the fact that the head model of the bot is not attached to the neck after 
it dies on the video suggests that you have used a pretty old version of my 
patch / of ioquake3. Maybe you have changed it, but there was a bug in early 
versions of my MD4 model implementation where tags were not correctly 

By the way, an updated version of my patch which applies against newer 
revisions of ioquake3 can be found here:

I wish you good luck with your diploma thesis!
