Quake2World is a Free, standalone first person shooter video game. Our goal is to bring the fun and excitement of straightforward old-school death-match gaming to a more contemporary platform, and perhaps to a new generation of gamers. Quake2World is multiplayer-only. There is no single-player or offline gameplay mode. If you have no Internet and no friends, Quake2World might not be for you.

We're aiming for a 1.0 release on April 1st this year (yes, April Fool's Day). Here are a couple screenshots of the progress the team made over the summer:

Graphical menus:

I like the menus. Now just throw in some hand grenades and it'll be ready!  :evilgrin:

Hand grenades would be pretty awesome.. unfortunately, we don't have anyone who could rig and animate a hand model right now.

It's not a remake of QuakeWorld; it's really just another iteration of Quake with (what I feel like are) the best aspects of QW, Q2, and Q3A all blended together:

- The movement is very much based on Quake2.
- The weapons are a healthy mix of all 3 games. You start with a shotgun, the chaingun has been passed over for lightning (complete with water detonation). The hyperblaster was traded in for a plasma gun that climbs walls. The rockets and grenades are very deadly, with lots of knockback, closer to what they were in QW.
- The visuals are somewhere between Quake2 and Quake4. It has per-pixel lighting (dot3-bump and parallax), but it does not have curved surfaces.
- The environments are mostly high-fidelity remakes of Quake and Quake2 levels.
- There's weather (rain and snow).

Well, you get the idea.. Give it a shot; download it, run Update.bat, fire it up, and type "map <tab>" to take it for a test drive.

Looks sick. Do you have any rough specifications for this yet?

Erica, install the snapshot to somewhere your user can write to without having to escalate permissions (i.e. just extract it to your Desktop). There are some permissions issues on Win7 that we haven't sorted out yet.

Barton, what kind of specs are you interested in?

I was wondering cuz the game ran like crap on my old computer (Pentium 4), but it runs flawlessly on my new PC.

Tried it for a bit. Seems okay at a glance, however I feel disappointed with the movement. I expected something like QW but the movement feels nerfed. I don't know the cvar to show speed, but it feels like you hardly gain any speed no matter what you do (e.g. bhopping, strafe jumping). However looking at a few of the maps, the movement fits but it isn't interesting or fun at all. Also that q2dm3 remake needs some work. Brushes need to be scaled better for more fluid movement.

There's a "ups" (units / second) stat in the HUD, down near the netgraph. But what you noticed is true in that there is a soft velocity clamp that kicks in at 450ups and tops out at 550-600ups under normal movement conditions. Basically, I've added air friction to the physics, so that players can't continually accelerate to infinity by mashing the spacebar. It's an attempt to bring some realism to the movement; remember, you're supposed to be a humanoid in Quake, not a spaceship. The clamp will be a server-side setting before Q2W is officially released, so servers can elect to increase it or turn it off.

The reason why the q2dm3 remake feels off is that we've increased the size of the player models about 25%, again for realism purposes. Your player no longer jumps to his own height, but rather about chest high. This also allowed us to put the player's view offset where it actually should be, rather than looking through your stomach like you do in Quake2. So I agree that certain maps as direct ports to Q2W do not feel correct anymore. We'll try to work those out before the release, but there are plenty of maps that, like you said, do work well with the movement. Remakes of q2dm2 and q2dm8 are in progress, and should both fit very well with Q2W's movement.

Basically, yes, there is still a ton of work to do. Wanna help? ;)

P.S. and before players like Beatdown get confused: 'handicap' is 100% a server-side feature. (Q2 servers never ask clients opinion on damage calculations.)
 

Admin

January 17, 2021, 03:22:04 PM
It's a customization on our FFA servers allowing you to increase difficulty by reducing the damage you deal to opponents. Setting handicap 50 means your shots do half damage.

What's handicap? I just saw a player (ateateate) change handicap from 100 to 69? I've never heard of that setting before.
