Yamagi was and still is the defacto client for Linux, and a great Windows client also. Yamagi features a software mode, opengl 1.4 and 3.2. I think the soft mode is with coloured lighting as well, though I may be confusing that with Kondrak's Vulkan client which definitely uses the Kolorsoft ref.

Yamagi uses http and is asynchronous like r1q2 and q2pro. It supports Zaero, Xatrix, and Rogue unlike q2pro which is more multiplayer oriented. Yamagi is more SP oriented and has many fixes for the single player, but is also a terrific MP client as well.

You can't go wrong with Yamagi and the developers are very cool with issues or suggestions that you can bring up on their github page

Yamagi is currently being updated and new versions released periodically. I am certain it is the most worked on client currently.

Cheers,

**If you are interested, I posted a link below for the Vulkan rendered client. It supports a cool underwater warping effect like Quake 1 and is a good client as well, but no http or asynchronous behavior.
