I am very sorry for writing that comment below.this app does NOT install any invisable files on your computer,I thought this app installed invisable files on my computer because when i tried to use it a week after i downloaded it,it said the trial time expired.After deleting the preferences and application support files it still said i couldn't use it,but it turns out that its like a beta that stops working after a certain time,after i set my date back a month it worked just like it did before.Once again sorry for posting that completely wrong review.

This app installs some type of invisable file on your hard drive.This software is completly useless,All the commands that this app does you can type in your self for free.

We are sorry you did not like the application. There are still people out there using things like DOS..... but.. The main purpose of the application is to make things more intuitive, more interactive and more fun!
We agree CLI interfaces solves some problems in a more powerful way, this is why we also adopted both config parameter pairs in a table in Advanced Setup and a plain text RCon control in Remote Control.
However for most tasks, most people, at least on the Mac platform(!) prefer a decent GUI to accomplish the most of their work.
But of course, different people have different preferences..

a good app to get a novice running a quake server,but if you want to setup a mod(like instaunlagged)then you will have to edit the config file yourself
