My post on linuxquestions.org https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?p=5524400#post5524400 where i thought it would get a receptive audience.

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 :)

Awesome, thanks!

I can't take too much credit for the Quake2 build: I put probably 30 hours into bug fixes and packaging, but it's mostly Maniac's AprQ2 work.

Btw, Quetoo is actually a separate, standalone game (http://quetoo.org or https://www.facebook.com/Quetoo.org). My Quake2 builds are tagged as "Quetoo.org" just as a shameless plug for the standalone game ;)

Cheers!

My standard way of encouraging people to quit farting around and start the match:  Eddie Van Halen up.  RIP EVH.
