An enhanced Quake engine for on-line and network multiplayer action. It is incorporated into FuhQuake, ProQuake, QuakeForge and TyrQuake.
FuhQuake contains numerous game-play and eye candy enhancements over the original
It will still play the original Quake episodes, but the focus is on multiplayer and single player mods won't work. FuhQuake is actively maintained by Fuh and has a loyal following.
XQF is a feature rich game server browser and launcher for Quake and many other games. It is dependent on the separate program, QStat , which displays information about Internet game servers. You'll also need the Gnome Gtk and Gdk toolkits.
Nexuiz is a stand-alone game using the Darkplaces engine. The recently released version 2 is a 200 meg download (!) and includes Linux and Windows binaries, source code, and a new campaign mode.
This engine makes use of many advanced lighting features, so users with less powerful video cards should try disabling these to run the game at a decent speed.
Paintball comes to Linux !
Digital Paint 2 is an "original" multiplayer game based on the Quake II engine. It's colourful and fun nature is a departure from the usual dark tone of most Quake games. Being a totally remodeled game, it doesn't require you to have the original Quake II ;->.
Single player games are possible by playing against computer bots.
From the ProQuake website: "...What you will find is a rock solid set of enhancements to unmodified netquake. Things that quake should have had from the get go.. like precise aim. Small, simple changes that improve the quality of netplay enormously. ProQuake is fully compatible with standard NetQuake. .... ProQuake is also fully compatible with the advanced features of Clanring CRMod++ version 6.0."
To make ProQuake's GL client, before typing make, edit "Makefile" to select the GL client:
- TARGETS=$(BUILDDIR)/bin/squake + TARGETS=$(BUILDDIR)/bin/glquake.glx - GLLDFLAGS=-L/usr/X11/lib -L/usr/local/lib -lGL -lX11 -lXext -ldl -lXxf86dga -lXxf86vm -lm + GLLDFLAGS=-L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/local/lib -lGL -lX11 -lXext -ldl -lXxf86dga -lXxf86vm -lmLike the original GLQuake, brightness support is broken, and owners of new Nvidia cards may have to apply the Sys_Printf bug fix.
