Wink repo-Quake, and now?


Hey Gamers!

Where are the days of Quake??? Well, thanks to the repo of my distro, it's back. I installed it, now, of course, I still need to get the pak's in there...somewhere. I followed the instructs in the readme, but to no avail...
Any one with more luck/wisdom here?
Please help, I loved Quake and a game would really drag me tru the winter...

(feeling under the weather...I hate weekends...)

Solved - the files need to be in /usr/share/games/quake/id1 , need to be all lower case, and permissions need to be set...

Buy it on Steam, download it with Steam (possibly with Wine), and then copy the data files over to where you want them.

...or, find it in the repo. I noticed that you use a 'buntu, it should be in the repo. Download/install it. Then, grab the legal copy you own and look for files on the CD under /data/id1/, the files to look for are called pak0.pak and pak1.pak. Copy these and put them in the data folder, mine is at /usr/share/games/quake/id1, full path per file: /usr/share/games/quake/id1/pak0.pak and /usr/share/games/quake/id1/pak1.pak. Set permissions accordingly where needed, extra spicing is not needed...
All lower cases. Fire up the game in applications-games-quake and ... enjoy.

Of course...

...if you refer to the "levels", aka the game data, that's located on the CD, or in a (free) shareware edition or, could be bought somewhere...please do not fall for the temptation to "just borrow it" from "someone"...

Thor
PS - it seems to work for the shareware edition as well, save for the pak files that obviously will not include the whole slaughter

quake

I guess I'll have to get copy from amazon.com While searching for it I also noticed that there is an Unreal Tournament for Linux on there. You mentioned a shareware version. What's the difference? Why would anyone be paying for it if there's a free one? Does anyone here have a shareware copy that you could copy for me?

The shareware version only has one episode out of 4.

If you want the shareware version, a google search for "quake shareware download" (or something similar) will get it for you. You'll probably have to use Wine on the installer.
