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):

'Medium' Edition DOWNLOAD (1.3GB):
======-----=======================

quake_epsilion_medium_28112011.zip.001 (800MB) - [URL=http://www.putlocker.com/file/89B2E 2E9C898196D]Download[/URL]
quake_epsilion_medium_28112011.zip.002 (419MB) - [URL=http://www.putlocker.com/file/439A8 6C0E7BAAAF2]Download[/URL]

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

Just unzip the zip file to somewhere on your computer and run the "darkplaces" executable. 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 [url=http://www.7-zip.org/download.html]
7-zip[/url] (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.

1. This is illegal (unless this is the shareware version)
2. Darkplaces was made by Ryan Gordon

You both need to read the actual post.
This is the shareware ver pak with the ability to throw in the full version paks if/when you purchase the game.
All sources are attributed (read the post!!!).
BTW, people are having problems with the above download links,

so I've uploaded to putlocker as well:
