The Map Designers suggest using the QuakeSpasm engine just drop that sucker in your quake folder. Load up the game hit ~ to get to the console and type in game (foldername) to launch.

Now there are several different ways to launch the game and launch the map from the start but I find this the simplest to do. Sometimes I have to actually start the single player game first before I’m able to get to (~) Console. I think its according to what engine you are running.


Thoughts on the Halloween Jam Map Pack 3

Truth be told I’ve never played a Map Pack till now. I was wanting to do something special for halloween and make a video. I figured this was as good as chance as any!

You are brought into a “hub” which you can then freely choose to wonder around and pick what map you want to complete.

Just walk up to the gate/portal and without entering the portal some text will pop up on screen letting you know which map you are about to enter.

Whenever you complete a map the portal turns red and text will let you know you’ve already completed the level.

I thought the maps I did play where great! I’m sure there are some more gems within the full map pack which I’ll be trying out soon!

Thank you for your help in making this year’s Pigeon Classic the biggest & best one yet! We will do our best to stand behind the brave folks doing the hard work to take care of people in such strange times.

The Ultimate Quake Computer for Quake I, II, and III.

Obviously the Quake Computer isn’t built for Modern Quake or Arena FPS Games. It’s built for the what got me started playing Quake, specifically Quake III Arena.


The purpose of this PC is to play Retro games and experience them in the way they where designed and developed to be played. Let’s be honest. Quake III Arena wasn’t meant to be played at a 4K resolution even though ioQuake does allow such a thing!

Other reasons is there might be a MOD or Map for Quake I, II, and III that just won’t work correctly on modern hardware.

Other games will also be feature over on my other YouTube Channel/Website FullTech. FullTech is a computer gaming blog and podcast featuring anything and everything about Computer Gaming.

Don’t worry though all FPS content will always be on this channel even if it is Retro or Indie. But, if retro computing is your thing you should check it out as I’ll be releasing some awesome retro related content there.

The Quake Computer Build

For all of you nerds out there wondering whats inside of this beast. Below I will tell you the specs and a little history over the PC.

I was given this PC years ago, I’d say around the year 2012. The Computer was a HP computer from 1999. Originally it looked like the owner had kept it updated and upgraded well into the Windows XP Era.

This awesome computer is really OVERKILL when it comes to the first 3 Quake games in the series. The greatest thing is that Windows 98 runs perfect on it. With Windows 98 built on top of MS-DOS it can run the original Quake natively without any source ports.

Specs

  • CPU – Intel Pentium III Slot clocked at 600mhz
  • RAM – 512 Megabytes
  • GPU – AGP ATi All-in-Wonder Card 128 MB
  • Harddrive – Maxtor 30 Gigabyte HDD
  • Monitor – Sony Triniton 19 Inch CRT

The Ultimate Quake computer might be able to run Quake 4 just not well. Quake IV was based on the Id Tech 4 engine and was a beast to try to run at first. There is however a Windows XP computer being built for that era of PC Gaming.
