Deathmatch Classic

What is Deathmatch Classic?

Deathmatch Classic or DMC is a multiplayer video game developed by Valve. The gameplay is similar to Quake deathmatch, with essentially the same weapons (except the one for melee combat, which is Half-Life's trademark crowbar instead of the original axe), armour and power-ups. DMC also imitates Quake's physics, which allows an advanced player to gain a lot of extra speed or jump very high by using a number of movement skills such as bunny hopping and rocket jumping.


Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 76 files and is usually about 19.19 MB (20,119,282 bytes).
