ThreeWave CTF is a modification made for Quake and Quake 2’s capture the flag multiplayer mode. It was very popular at its time, but only few players know that it was made not only for Quake. There is a Deathmatch Classic version of it, planned to be released in 2001, but it wasn’t. A beta was leaked in 2003 along with Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life: Source, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes and, partially, Team Fortress 2, and was sold by Russian company 7 Wolf as hidden part of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes (not called Deleted Scenes then).
The leak includes 21 maps from Quake version of ThreeWave CTF, all in Deathmatch Classic style and it is fully playable. Along with flags, it includes grappling hook and 4 runes: haste, regeneration, resistance and strength. However, like most alpha and beta versions, it has bugs. It crashes on when a team is selected. This is fixable by replacing its client DLL with the one from Deathmatch Classic, but some HUD elements get removed. However, it doesn’t lose its playability.
You can download the leak from Mod DB.
