Korax from http://www.korvinkorax.com has released a new Quake engine!
Rather an Ultimate Quake Engine ~ UQE, based on id softwares Quake source code.
The new engine only requires that end-user owns the pak files from the original game, located in your quake/id1 directory.
The new UQE is a small download and installation is pretty straight forward. So if you own Quake but want to now play it under todays hardware standards, give UQE a try, it’s pretty nice! Also make sure to check his site regularly for future updates!
Thanks Korax! ~ We love the work you’ve been doing!
