Quake II port for the PlayStation 2
NOTE: This project is no longer active and there are no plans to continue development.
This is an unofficial fan made port, targeting the PS2 Console, of the original Quake II source code released by id Software.
This port relies on the free PS2DEV SDK to provide rendering, input, audio and system services for the Quake Engine.
The project is in early development stage, but 2D rendering of menus and cinematics is implemented and working on both the PCSX2 Emulator and the PS2.
As shown in the screenshot above, we also have some basic hardware-accelerated raw level geometry rendering implemented.
The long term goal would be to have a fully functional and playable (single-player) Quake II on the PlayStation 2, using only on the freely available tools and libraries.
Some of the main features still missing are:
- Finish Vector Unit-accelerated rendering
- Add texture mapping, lightmaps and dynamic lights
- Add sound rendering/mixing for the PS2
- Add gamepad input
- Optimize memory allocation/usage as much as possible
- Optimize rendering to ensure smooth 30fps gameplay
