Quetoo 64 bit quake2 source and binary
I dont know how many q2 linux executables are out there, i have tried 3:
1. q2pro, which didnt work at all, wouldnt detect the keyboard

2. yamagi quake, which is in my opinion the best single player and best ui wise and supports hi res texture paks

3. quetoo https://github.com/jdolan/quake2 which provides support for the yamagi hi res texture pak http://deponie.yamagi.org/quake2/texturepack/ and imo provides the smoothest multiplayer experience.

quetoo compiles easily on slackware 64 -current.
My frag rate nearly doubled using this one and the network play is extremely smooth.
If you are going to try it, your multiplayer player models need to be in your ~/.quake2/baseq2/players directory or quetoo wont be able to find them.
Some cons, the weapons leave trails that are somewhat obtrusive and that i havent figured out how to turn off yet, also cl_maxfps doesnt seem to be working, i have it set to 100 and its consistently at 199-200.
otoh with the other pluses, the above are somewhat trivial and you get nice stencil buffer blood splashes on the floors and walls as an extra :)

and if you are looking for servers go to http://q2servers.com my q2 alias is "lavaboy" if you see me say hello

quetoo is nice work and appreciated ty :)

/dev/random / Quake 2 nostalgia
« on: December 04, 2014, 07:38:33 PM »
I started playing again, for the first time in about 10 years, this week. Im almost ashamed to say it, but it felt a little like coming home.
The slapstick ultra violence really tickles my funny bone :)

BTW im 59, anybody remember lavaboy? I seemed to recognize some of the player names i have been seeing. If it jogs your memory i used to have "NEENER NEENER NEENER!" bound to a key that i would try to hit after ever frag if there was time. It used to drive people crazy :)
I used to be a passable player but i die alot these days :)
