quake 2 modding community

If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

quake 2 modding community

Postby CBM » Fri Oct 23, 2020 5:44 am

is there still an active quake 2 modding community?


quake 2 and doom 2 has always been my favorite fps games


I even did a few quake 2 maps many many years ago


I am mainly looking for a quake 2 source port with md3 support...Quake2XP will not run on any of my systems,


however r1q2 "enhanced quake 2" does apparently run fine but does not support md3 models and is not maintained...

I remember there being some cool map editors for quake 2... anyone know where to get them?

I don't suppose zdoom and raze will get more siblings such as ones based on the quake series engines... aka quake, quake2, quake3...
? :-)

Outside of QuakeUlf, seemingly not.

Seemingly the only other maintained Quake 2 sourceports nowadays are Yamagi Quake 2 (which is very vanilla) and Quake 2 RTX (which probably won't work on your PC). I'd love to be proven wrong, mind.

Trenchbroom is the only editor that matters.

As much as I love Quake 2, I cannot take on another game. Hell, even right now I'd be more than happy if some other developer showed up to help with either GZDoom or Raze.

Generally the Quake modding scenes have died when the engines were technologically relevant commercially as many experienced quality creators get hired in the games industry (as well as competitive corporate hosting drama hindering hobbyist scene growth), while the players embrace the custom less and just stick to dm2/q2dm1/q3dm6/q3dm17. They've never had the lasting Doom hobbyist resilience, taken for granted nowadays. At best you'll see an experienced mapper (often with games industry experience) going a little viral with something beautiful that's not compatible with most engines. At worst you'll see someone aggressively crossposting bad box maps for "retrogaming" clout.

nice

what else can you tell me about the quake 1 comunity?

I reckon custom mdl files are pretty common yes?

do quake 1 have sourceports and do some of them accept md3 models?

understandable

what language do you use for raze and gzdoom and where do the projects need help?

I am fluent in c,c++,delphi/lazarus,java,vb, and a few more languages

I admit that I am very confused at the actual technical nature of most of the bugs listed under zdoom and raze atm

but then again ... I never actually messed around with gameengines in this way and I have not looked at the code for zdoom or raze at all yet

gzdoom

looks like a gcc c++ project...

following guide...

preparing for compilation...

installed github desktop...

cloning latest gzdoom source from https://github.com/coelckers/gzdoom ...

installing cmake...

Got an error, most likely I configured something wrong...

I followed this guide (MinGW): https://zdoom.org/wiki/Compile_ZDoom_on_Windows

I selected GCC.exe as c compiler and g++ as c++ compiler

Also RavenKeep a 3 map episode, with medieval ambient, some new monster (ravens, ghosts, dark lords) where you have to search 3 holy grails, in order to defeat the evil dark lord, its a blast of fun
