Q3 Documentation Project was supposed to be a thread of Programming discussion category, right?
I just found buried info:
https://web.archive.org/web/20050907224 ... 05563.html

Also a FAQ of this part:
https://web.archive.org/web/20051101130 ... 06307.html

How did I find?
In this old lost interesting Q3 programming dictionary place, there's a link where redirects (clicking 'Quake3World Programming forum'):
https://web.archive.org/web/20120530215 ... /index.htm

Documentation should be complete now, and source code is actually available, with all necessary comments filled in to help programmers do necessary changes. You can find source code of Quake III Arena on GitHub.

That didn't age very well. Nowadays, we have access to Git, which is temendously powerful versioning tool. And you can even host the source code online, mostly used is GitHub. So Git actually already does backups for you, and if you host the source code online remotely, it can also serve as cloud backup and double up as open-source hosting. Nobody burns CDs nowadays, if you want to use removeable offline media, just use flash USB sticks.

I know that there are many info about Q3 programming and documentations. But there are resources where explain how to do something special in the code, like a projectile detonating and something like that.

IIRC, here: https://openarena.fandom.com/wiki/Codin ... _tutorials
Using 'Quake 3 Game-module Documentation' link on the Wayback machine to reveal the past of this site.
