The game of Freezetag added into Sauerbraten. Comes with the grappling hook addition.

For those of you who remember the good old Freezetag mod and Grappling hook from Quake 1/2/3 days, we've recreated them for your Cubing pleasure! Grapple can be used in any game mode, and FT in any team play game mode.

--- Addendum ---
Since I didn't think to post instructions here, I'll just copy in Gindrex' note from the comments and add a few qualifiers:
**

If you use the included modified batch files/config you shouldn't need to do much to actually turn it on, other than switch to a multiplayer mode like insta team dm.
**
(Altrag notes: FT is only available in team games, not regular DM games. Grapple is available in all modes. Also, the pre-built executable is ftsauer.exe, not sauerbraten.exe. Recompiling will overwrite the original sauerbraten.exe filename however. ftserver.bat and ftsauer.bat are your two basic batch files to run ftsauer. I've also changed the default port to 38785 and added a -mnomaster option in the batch file so that I wouldn't be polluting the master server with untested code. Keep that in mind if you want to start a server for non-LAN players).
**

Basically, the ftserver batch file will start it with freeze turned on internally.
**
(Altrag notes: FT and grapple were intended to be votable options, but I haven't gotten the voting working correctly yet, so for the moment they're both hardcoded on the server side. You will have to recompile to disable them. Voting is still planned for the future however).
**

Then all you need to do is connect the corresponding client to it. Once you change to a multiplayer mode like insta team dm, etc, it will pull the mode from the server and turn it on.

Of course, you need at least 3 clients before it starts getting more fun, since a single player per team results in a team score and autothaw, so you never see the icecubes.

To use the grapple, you need to bind something to usegrapple
i.e. /bind mouse2 usegrapple
**
(Altrag notes: I've actually added this into defaults.cfg now. There's also a menu option in the Input tab if you wish to rebind the key that way).
