61  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / For all the quake lovers out there: "Epsilon" build - free download for Win/Etc on: December 03, 2011, 01:09:22 am
Quake - 15 years on, "Epsilon" build - free download for Win/Mac/Linux
==========================================------------------------------

I've been browsing the latest graphical/sound quake mods recently, and have managed to put together a pretty neat build using LordHavoc's darkplaces, rygel's ultra textures packs, the reforged packs and a variety of Seven's mods, to play the original Quake.
The problem comes when you have to browse the quakeone forums, stumbling to find the posts which detail what cvars and what configs/files you have to overwrite etc in order to get each mod to work. I literally spent as much time getting the damn mods working as playing the game!
So, with that in mind, I've built together a pretty happy-looking build of quake original called 'epsilon' for everybody to download without getting into the hassle of config files and reading every post in the quakeone forums.


Take a look at the screenies below:






I've made two versions, one an 'Ultra' build for a halfway modern setup (dual core 2.5ghz and upwards, 2GB ram and upwards, geforce 7600GS and upwards),
as well as the 'Medium' build for lower spec machines with onboard video etc. Screenshots are from the "Ultra" edition.




'Ultra' Edition DOWNLOAD (3.24GB):

Installation and running:
========---------========

Just unzip the zip file to somewhere on your computer and run the "darkplaces" executable.
Go to options, select "Full Lighting" and hit enter, then go into video config and change your resolution to taste.
That's all!

I've included executables for Windows, Linux and Mac in these packs, so you should be able to run it on any of those (I've only tested in Windows- no guarantees for others).

Since these are multipart zip files, you'll need an unzipping program like 7-zip (freeware, Mac/Win/Linux) or similar to unzip.



Omitted Content:
=====----------

The download cannot include the full quake pak0.pak and pak1.pak files, for legal reasons (that'd be pra-riracy!), so I've put in the shareware quake pak0.pak (ie. the first quarter of the game) and you can buy full quake off of steam for about $5-$10 depending on the day, and grab the full-version pak0.pak and pak1.pak files from that. If you're using steam the pak0.pak & pak1.pak files will be in your steam/steamapps/common/quake/id1 folder.
Also for legal reasons, the download doesn't include the original NiN soundtrack, so I've included my own 'Diabolipak' music replacement pack which I hope you'll enjoy. You can always find the original soundtrack around if you really want it.



Performance notes:
========---------

If you're running the 'ultra' build and you get performance issues in areas with stained-glass lighting, delete the ID1\zreflecting_overload.pk3 file. You lose the stained glass stuff, but get your FPS back.
Otherwise if you get performance issues, try going into the game's options/video config and either dropping resolution, antialiasing or anisotropic filtering down.

62  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / New ending and beginning music on: December 03, 2011, 01:06:27 am
Hi Guys-
thought I'd let you know that, hopefully, at some point, music pack 4 will be released.
When it is, this is the new ending/intro music, courtesy of Moi (me):

Realised I hadn't posted it here, so-

Apparently, the 3DO intro and ending work fine, but nobody here seems to have the right to distribute the movie files. Oddly, I can find MPEGs of the intro and ending at PoNaF (which surely is just as legal/illegal) but not the original DUKs (which UQM uses).


Is the quality of image in the mpegs (grainy, blocky) the end-quality in the DUKs? I was pretty darn impressed by the mpegs, despite their blockiness - despite their age, they hold extremely well.

Here's an add-on pack that should do the trick:

http://www.submedia.net/~nic/uqm/uqm-intro-ending.zip

DO NOT UNZIP IT!  Place the file in your content/packages folder and start the game normally; the intro/endings should play automatically when appropriate.


I see opening, I don't see closing (ditto with download the individual files and placing in the content/slides/ending directory...) sequence.
I'm using the CVS from 19-01-2005. Should it be working?

Ah I see Smiley
Was missing the content, would be smarter to have it come on at the start of every 'new game' instead of during the title screen because gamers tend to instinctively (or at least, I do), just hit a key to get rid of screens like that.
Anyone agree with me?

Hiya-
I have some experience both programming and remixing music - primarily I'd like to help get the beginning and end-sequences going either by mixing the music or programming-
can I help?
BTW theres a bug in the latest cvs - if you press space bar during the 'outtakes', the game freezes, essentially- haven't checked to see whether it's in .3 alpha- *MODDED*: think this was just a random computer *magic fluctuation*, on my pc.
Thanks,
Matt
