Jake2 README ============ Jake2 is a port of the GPL'd Quake2 engine from id Software to Java. Jake2 is distributed under the terms of the GPL (see LICENSE). The port was done completely in Java. No native libraries are used for the game functionality. We use the jogl Java OpenGL bindings for graphics rendering and Java OpenAL (joal) for sound. Since 0.9.4 release, Jake2 comes with an lwjgl driver as an alternative for the jogl/joal combination. Jake2 is still under development. Send bug reports and feedback to email@example.com. Currently Jake2 supports Linux, Windows2000/XP and Mac OS X. The Jake2 dedicated server runs on every Java supported plattform. requirements: 400 MHz CPU Geforce2 MX or better graphics accelerator at least JRE 1.4 to run Jake2 at least JDK 1.5 to build Jake2 from source Installation ------------ from binary distribution: - run the installer with "java -jar Jake2-0.9.5-install.jar" - follow the instructions - change to the installation directory - run the game with Jake2.sh or Jake2.bat - to run Jake2 with the lwjgl OpenGL/OpenAL driver use Jake2_lwjgl.sh or Jake2_lwjgl.bat build from source: - unpack jake2src-version.tar.gz or jake2-version.zip - set JAVA_HOME environment variable to Your JDK1.5 installation - run "build.sh installer" or "build.bat installer" to build the installer installation of Quake2 data: - if Jake2 does not detect the Quake2 files on startup you have the choice to select a baseq2 directory of a Quake2 installation (demo or full version) or to download and install the Quake2 demo files If you want to have the latest experimental features you can grab the latest Jake2 sources from CVS. - "cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/jake2 login" - when askesd for password simply press the Enter key - "cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/jake2 co jake2" - proceed with the build from source instructions 3rd party components -------------------- Jake2 uses: jogl OpenGL bindings https://jogl.dev.java.net joal OpenAL bindings https://joal.dev.java.net lwjgl Light Weight Java Game Library http://www.lwjgl.org openal Audio library http://www.openal.org izpack Installer http://www.izforge.com/ the source distribution comes with: ant build tool http://ant.apache.org xerces XML library http://xml.apache.org Use <firstname.lastname@example.org> for bug reports and feedback. have fun! bytonic Software ---------------- Holger Zickner <email@example.com> Carsten Weisse <firstname.lastname@example.org> Rene Stoeckel <email@example.com> Contributors ------------ David Sanders lwjgl support
