Unzip .dem file from the file you just downloaded to id1 directory in your Quake folder, for example:
You have something.zip, which includes something.txt and something.dem in it.
Put something.dem to /quake/id1/, so you have: /quake/id1/something.dem
You should also put something.txt file in the same directory so it's easier to identify the map later on.
Start Quake, pull down console (by pressing "~" key) and type: playdemo something
You should read included text file (something.txt in our example) for any specific instructions, suggestions or notes.
Note: we recommend using WinZip to unzip files. It allows you to easily drag and drop files from zip files.
