choppy sound in quake2
OK.. I fixed this problem by setting snddriver as sdl and snddevice as /dev/dsp in config.cfg
I have had same problem and solved it by installing libsdl-alsa and disabling sound mixing (ESD) - system sounds. Another good thing is to use q2 quetoo engine, disabling desktop acceleration (compiz, beryl)...etc
example to set sound in q2
#quake2 +set snddriver sdl
#quake2 +set snddriver alsa
#quake2 +set snddriver oss
bummer.. your post inspired me so I just finished installing quake2 on my little netbook, it installed without any issues and everything is working. Now if I can figure out how to get it to go Fullscreen in widescreen format on this little bugger I'd be pretty happy..
I know it's been a while but did you ever solve this? I just had the same problem last night and solved it by starting the game with the sdlquake2 command. On my system it's found in /usr/lib/quake2. I'm running Quake2-3.21 with the maxpack on Slackware 12.2 with kernel 18.104.22.168.
It's an old game, but it's still one of my all time favorites.
