EpiQuake is a new sound mod for Quake 1 which has replaced around 90% of Trent Reznors sound design work with new original recordings bringing quake up to date by giving the sound an overall modern vibe with some epic flare. HUGE sounding / stereo panned weapons, deadly new enemy sounds, toned down yet dark ambient sounds, and epic platform / door sounds with a huge sense of low end have all been included. The entire project was completed over the course of two weeks by veteran game and film sound designer / composer Rich Douglas. EpiQuake works best with Dark Places (you just place the pk3 files in your darkplaces/id1 folder), but with some crafty manual copying, you can get these sounds to work in almost ANY version of the game. Install instructions will be detailed when the mod is released!
To my knowledge there have been very few (if any at all) attempts to bring the sound design heard in Quake up to today's game industry audio standard. There have been attempts to upsample the existing audio.... but never a Quake sound project of this scale. While close to 90% of the sounds have been replaced... they are all still in the same vein as Reznors original sounds but in some cases darker, more cinematic, and most importantly... full HD quality at 44.1 16 bit! In fact, many of the sounds stem from the original ideas and then expand on them while keeping them consistent with the quake world. Make no mistake, this is not one of the many humorous Quake sound mods out there... this is deadly serious and will take your Quake experience to the next level. The idea wasn't to do something better than Trent Reznor.. just to bring the games overall sound design up to date so it fits better with the killer upgraded visual paks and DarkPlaces. In fact, all of the video footage here was recorded utilizing rygels high res texture pak and the amazing Dark Places engine. This sound / music pak is the perfect companion for these visual tweaks!
Quake: another all time classic, although this DOS game looks like it was never really finished properly (which is true). Poorly designed weaponry. No gun-changing animation. Cartoonish characters. But it was an instant classic FPS anyway, with true 3D level design and polygonal characters, as well as TCP/IP network support. With the DarkPlaces quake engine you still can play Quake on a computer with a modern operating system! The DarkPlaces Quake engine is the best source port we've encountered so far. Other Quake source ports we've tested: ezQuake.
Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is an upcoming first-person shooter developed by KillPixel Games and published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment. Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is built on a modified version of the Quake engine, making it the first major game release on that engine in nearly 20 years. The first episode was released on Steam Early Access on November 22, 2019 with the full version expected in Q2 2023.
Wrath was originally intended to release into Early Access with the first episode in "Summer 2019". Though the Early Access game would require a full price purchase, using the first episode as a teaser is reminiscent of the Shareware model that was common in the 1990s. However, the planned date was pushed back to make it "bigger and better," with the eventual release on November 22, 2019, featuring two of the five levels in Episode 1 and a roadmap for the completion of the first episode leading up to the full release. Being based on the open source DarkPlaces engine, the game's source code was also released under the GPLv2 via GitHub in November 2019.

Havoc's file archive can be a little confusing. The large "darkplacesengine"tarballs include precompiled binaries and the game's source code in a secondtarball. To compile your own program uncompress the second tarball , typemake to see a list of possible targets (programs), and select one.For example - to build the OpenGL engine with ALSA sound type makecl-release, or to build with OSS sound, make cl-releaseDP_SOUND_API=OSS.
From the Quore website:Quore is an atmospheric Quake engine running on GNU/Linux systemswith enhanced graphics, increased limits, configurable HUD and ambiences, anddifferent modes for changing the gameplay. It is based on JoeQuake withadditional effects from Qrack, ezQuake and engine's limits tweaking fromFitzquakeThis game is great, and probably the most graphically modified Linux engine.But it also has many niggling bugs.
To compile version 0.2.2 of this project, you'll need the python scriptinglanguage installed, and perhaps to make this change to src/nq/pr_edict.c , line 1108:- if (progs->ofs_strings + pr_stringssize >= com_filesize)+ if (progs->ofs_strings + pr_stringssize >= (uint)com_filesize)Executing scons.py will now (hopefully) build the binaries, and after copying the singleplayer client (twilight-nq) to your quake directory,type twilight-nq -basedir $PWD to start the game.
Run the game as super user: Type su and enter root'spassword before typing glquake.glx ... to start the game. Change the game file permissions. Unix operating systems havestrong security preventing unauthorized or accidental file changes.The simplest way to overcome this in a single user environment is to becomesuper user and change ownership of the quake directory with (as root):chown -R USERNAME /usr/local/games/quake. However it isrecommended users read the chmod and chown manand info pages to better understand Unix file permissions. In full multi-user environments it is recommended using theDarkplaces,TyrQuake >= 0.56 orQuakeForge game engines, which correctlyplace per-user data in their home directory.
The project is allowed to use Blood textures and sounds under fair use without fear of legal repercussions, based on a quitclaim licence from Atari (then Infogrames) granted through the mediation of Joseph "knghtbrd" Carter from the Debian project. This was preceded by an endorsement by then Monolith Productions CEO Jason Hall on February 14, 2001. Some high people in the project had suggested a potential equivalent to Transfusion for Blood II: The Chosen under the free software Quake III engine (probably ioquake3); there are already recreations of some Blood II BloodBath levels included in Transfusion. The Transfusion levels and engine are free software under the GNU General Public License however most of the sounds, graphics and music are proprietary, and are mostly from Blood. These are owned by Monolith Productions and are used under permission. Transfusion runs on Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, *BSD, and Mac OS X.
Although the full PC version of Quake can be purchased for a small price (e.g. Steam), this post will show how to use the latest Quake demo (Shareware 1.06) and turn it into the full version using the original CD. Overall, this method will make the game use the original music from the CD and add support for Windows and OpenGL.
Assuming c:/quake as the install directory (recommended), the shareware should be installed to c:/quake (the default location). It will install the executable files required to run the DOS version (quake.exe), GLQuake (glquake.exe) and WinQuake (winquake.exe). GLQuake and WinQuake are source ports of Quake (also called game engines). The DOS version of Quake will most likely not work in Windows 10, but WinQuake and GLQuake should be playable.
WinQuake and GLQuake can be launched as discussed earlier, but will now run the full version of the game. By keeping the game CD in the CD ROM drive, the original Quake CD soundtrack will be automatically used as music.
That said, since there are plenty of open source engines capable of running it you can also use the Steam Play tool Luxtorpeda which just got updated to support the newly bundled expansions, music, along with the brand new "Dimension of the Machine" Episode. Using Luxtorpeda gives you the ability to run the content with vkquake, quakespasm, and darkplaces.

Quake is a classic first-person shooter game by id Software,released in 1996. This package contains a launcher script and menuentry to play Quake with any suitable engine.To make this package useful, you will need to create and install thenon-distributable quake-registered or quake-shareware package, by using thegame-data-packager package.Creating quake-registered requires data files from a Quake installation orCD-ROM.Creating quake-shareware requires the shareware version of Quake.game-data-packager (>= 45) can also produce packages for the official Episode5, Dimensions of the Past (developed by MachineGames to mark Quake's 20thanniversary), and for the official missionpacks Scourge of Armagon (developed by Hipnotic Software) and Dissolutionof Eternity (developed by Rogue Entertainment). Additional menu entriesshould appear automatically if those expansions are installed.
