Quore's Bemusing Insistence


My conundrum:

Quote:
quore-x11
Error: You must specify the base directory using: -base <basedir>
Well, then:

Quote:
quore-x11 -base QUAKE/ID1
Error: You must specify the base directory using: -base <basedir>
Can anyone explain how I'm to proceed? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...!

It;s a shot in the dark, but maybe the full path to the base directory?

Base directory might be in the form of /base/someplace/

Regrettably, command parameters specifying the entire path elicit the same result. Thank you anyhow!

Why Quore, and not either Quakespasm (for a pure Quake experience) or Darkplaces (for an enhanced Quake experience)?

Quore hasn't been updated since 2009.
