THE AS OF YET NOT OFFICIALLY NAMED LAUNCHER FOR IOQ3
The launcher for ioquake3. Built with QT, written in C++.
This project's goal as an updater is to get everyone on Windows, OS X, and Linux onto modern versions of ioquake3, and keep them up-to-date in a style similar to other stand-alone launcher/updater systems for games that aren't on major digital-distribution platforms.
As a launcher this project should enable easy access to ioquake3 features that are otherwise buried in wikis, forums, and README files.
Future goals could include the ability to launch an encapsulated mod for quake 3 or standalone games and keep them updated and on the latest versions of ioquake3 as well.
