Minor OS-oriented changes to id Software's Quake2 3.21: "Sorry, real life (tm) got in the way,0.16" *************************************************************************** Important Note: If you received an installer which installed the Quake II demo levels, you may not distribute that installer or the demo levels in anyway except electronically. The Quake II demo levels are still Copyright Id Software and are not covered by the Gnu Public License which governs the source code. Id has been kind enough to allow us to distribute these levels with an installer to show users just how cool Quake II is in the jopes that it will lead them to buy full versions. Please do not harm our relationship with Id by distributing the demo installer electronically. *************************************************************************** (NOTE: throughout this document, references to i386 [debugi386, releasei386, gamei386.so] are used. If your architecture is not i386, just substitute that for i386. The Makefile gives some hints as to what is supported.) For this to be of any use, you _must_ own a copy of Quake 2. The demo would also work, but you might as well buy the full thing now. These modifications are intended for Linux users, as I do not have have access to other platforms. Be sure to install SDL 1.2 (http://www.libsdl.org) if you want to use the softsdl or sdlgl drivers, or the sdlquake2 binary. 'make' will, by default, build both the debug and release files. To build just the optimized binaries: make build_release The resulting binaries are then put in releasei386. Known Bugs ------------ Makefile options: ----------------- (quake2 and gamei386.so are always built, but the following options can be changed by editing the Makefile) BUILD_SDLQUAKE2 Build sdlquake2, a quake2 binary that uses SDL for CD audio and sound access (default = YES). BUILD_SVGA Build ref_soft.so, a quake2 video driver that uses SVGAlib (default = NO). BUILD_X11 Build ref_softx.so, a quake2 video driver that uses X11 (default = YES). BUILD_GLX Build ref_glx.so, a quake2 video driver that uses X11's GLX (default = YES). BUILD_FXGL Build ref_gl.so [might be renamed to fxgl later], a quake2 video driver that uses fxMesa (default = NO). This option is currently untested because I do not have a Voodoo 1 or 2. BUILD_SDL Build ref_softsdl.so, a quake2 video driver that uses SDL (default = YES). BUILD_SDLGL Build ref_sdlgl.so, a quake2 video driver that uses OpenGL with SDL (default = YES). BUILD_CTFDLL Build the Threewave CTF gamei386.so (default = NO). BUILD_XATRIX Build the Xatrix gamei386.so for the "The Reckoning" Mission Pack (default = NO). [see notes below] BUILD_ROGUE Build the Rogue gamei386.so for the "Ground Zero" Mission Pack (default = NO). [see notes below] HAVE_IPV6 Build quake2 with IPv6 support (currently only tested on FreeBSD, see below for info) (default = NO). BUILD_JOYSTICK Build quake2 with support for SDL and Linux joysticks, [default = YES]. BUILD_ARTS Build support for the aRts sound system (src/linux/snd_arts.c) [default = NO] BUILD_ALSA Build support for the ALSA sound system [default = NO] BUILD_DEDICATED Build the quake 2 dedicated server q2ded. BUILD_QMAX Build the eye-candy oriented Quame2 Max (see below) BUILD_AA Build the aalib text mode renderer. BUILD_RETEXTURE Build support for retextured textures, see: http://http://3d.kicks-ass.net/texturepaks/ To install the Quake2 demo data: -------------------------------- (installdir is whereever you want to install quake2) 1. download ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake2/q2-314-demo-x86.exe 2. unzip -L q2-314-demo-x86.exe into a temp directory 3. cp baseq2/pak0.pak to <installdir>/baseq2/pak0.pak Continue with the "To Install This Program" directions bellow To install the Quake2 gamedata from game CD: ------------------------------- (installdir is wherever you want to install quake2, and cdromdir is wherever you mount the Quake 2 CD-ROM) 1. copy <cdromdir>/Install/Data/baseq2/pak0.pak to <installdir>/baseq2/ 2. copy <cdromdir>/Install/Data/baseq2/video/ to <installdir>/baseq2/ (optional) 3. download q2-3.20-x86-full.exe from ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake2/ or a mirror site, and extract the contents to a temporary directory (use unzip -L, as this is a standard zip file). 4. copy <q2-3.20-x86-full.exe temp directory>/baseq2/pak1.pak to <installdir>/baseq2/ 5. copy <q2-3.20-x86-full.exe temp directory>/baseq2/pak2.pak to <installdir>/baseq2/ 6. copy <q2-3.20-x86-full.exe temp directory>/baseq2/players/ to <installdir>/baseq2/ 7. if you really want to use the crakhor model, you can find the skins/sounds on websites like http://www.mike-d.com/games/modskins.html (optional) To install this program: ------------------------ (builddir is either debugi386 or releasei386) 0. edit Makefile if needed, then 'make' 1. copy <builddir>/gamei386.so to <installdir>/baseq2/ 2. copy <builddir>/ref_*.so to <installdir> 3. copy <builddir>/quake2 to <installdir> 4. copy <builddir>/sdlquake2 to <installdir> (optional) 5. copy <builddir>/ctf/gamei386.so to <installdir>/ctf/ (optional) To install the "The Reckoning" Mission Pack (Xatrix): ----------------------------------------------------- (cdromdir is wherever you mount The Reckoning CD-ROM) 1. enable BUILD_XATRIX in Makefile 2. download xatrixsrc320.shar.Z from ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake2/source/ or a mirror site, extract it (it's a compressed shell script) and place the contents in <quake2-rX.X.X>/src/xatrix/ 3. make 4. copy <builddir>/xatrix/gamei386.so to <installdir>/xatrix/ 5. copy <cdromdir>/Data/all/pak0.pak to <installdir>/xatrix/ 6. copy <cdromdir>/Data/max/xatrix/video/ to <installdir>/xatrix/ (optional) 7. when starting quake2, use "+set game xatrix" on the command line To install the "Ground Zero" Mission Pack (Rogue): -------------------------------------------------- (cdromdir is wherever you mount the Ground Zero CD-ROM) 1. enable BUILD_ROGUE in Makefile 2. download roguesrc320.shar.Z from ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake2/source or a mirror site, extract it (it's a compressed shell script) and place the contents in <quake2-rX.X.X>/src/rogue/ 3. make 4. if the compilation fails, change line 31 of src/rogue/g_local.h from: #define _isnan(a) ((a)==NAN) to: #define _isnan(a) isnan(a) and try again. 4.5 if the compilation fails on the include, change #include <nan.h> to #include <bits/nan.h> 5. copy <builddir>/rogue/gamei386.so to <installdir>/rogue/ 6. copy <cdromdir>/Data/all/pak0.pak to <installdir>/rogue/ 7. copy <cdromdir>/Data/max/Rogue/video/ to <installdir>/rogue/ (optional) 8. when starting quake2, use "+set game rogue" on the command line To Build Quake2 Max. ------------------- Quake2 Max is a set of GL improvements to the Quake2 source base by psychospaz, <http://modscape.telefragged.com/q2max/> the 0.25 version has been merged into the Quake2 for Linux source tree. To build the added visual candy: 1. make clean 2. set BUILD_QMAX to YES in the makefile 3. make You will also need to download http://www.icculus.org/quake2/files/maxpak.pak and place it in your quake2/baseq2 directory. Please note that the resulting Quake2 binaries and video drivers are incompatible with binaries and drivers built with BUILD_QMAX set to NO. For right now, the driver gets built as ref_glx.so and ref_sdlgl.so. In the future this will change so that both drivers can be build in parallel. AALib Video Driver ------------------ The AALib video driver is written by email@example.com it provides text rendering for Quake2. It requires the aalib package to build, which is available at http://aa-project.sourceforge.net. Retexturing Support ------------------ There has been an effort to retexture Quake2 with 24-bit textures to replace 8-bit ones. The resulting textures look *good* but take up more space and makes quake2 run slower. If you wish to run retextured quake2 you need to download pak1x (currently 0-6) from http://3d.kicks-ass.net/texturepaks/ Thanks to Karen Pouelle for the code to support this. To run: ------- cd <installdir> && ./quake2 Or: quake2 +set basedir <installdir> Add +set game <moddir> to load a mod (like the mission packs). /etc/quake2.conf is no longer used; instead, the ref_*.so files are loaded from basedir (basedir is "." by default, and can only be set at the command line). Configuration files and such are saved in ~/.quake2/, so <installdir> can be made read-only or whatever. WARNING: Please do not make quake2 or any of the libraries suid root! Doing so is at your own risk. NOTE: Save games will not work across different versions or builds, because of the way they are stored. Binary-Only Mods: ----------------- Chances are that they will not work. I suspect that it has something to do with the mods being built with older versions of gcc/glibc2. EraserBot, for example, has source available except for one file, p_trail.o. Trying to use an EraserBot gamei386.so results in a crash somewhere inside p_trail.o. Dedicated Server: ----------------- Dedicated Server support has been added (thanks to Wesley Bear) just modify the Makefile so that BUILD_DEDICATED=YES (default NO) that should build a q2ded binary in the release directory. CTF Server: ----------- To run Capture The Flag, you need to do the following: 1) download q2-3.20-x86-full-ctf.exe from ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake2 2) unzip that file (using unzip -L) in a temp directory 3) copy ctf to <installdir>/ctf 4) build the ctf shared library (BUILD_CTF=YES in the Makefile) 5) cp releas<arch>/ctf/game<arch>.so to <installdir>/ctf/game<arch>.so 6) quake2 +set game ctf +set dedicated 1 7) on the console enter "map Q2CTF1" that will load up the first ctf map, then connect using a client with multi-player. For the other maps use Q2CTF2, etc. *Note if you are using the demo version and not the full version, some textures are missing from the CTF levels* IPv6 Support: ------------- Currently experimental, so it may or may not work. Here is some information about it from Florent Parent: quake2 +set dedicated 1 Runs server listening on both IPv4 and IPv6 sockets quake2 +set dedicated 1 +set multicast <interface> IPv6 server joins quake2 multicast group ff12::666 quake2 +set dedicated 1 +set ip <IPv6 address> +set multicast <interface> IPv6 server only. Listens on <IPv6 address> Examples of <IPv6 address>: 3ffe:b00:c18::666 (global IPv6 address) fe80::202:b3ff:fe04:1234%fxp0 (link-local address. scope required) :: (unspecified, binds on all IPv6 addresses) quake2 +set dedicated 1 +set ip <IPv4 address> IPv4 server only. Listens on <IPv4 address> 0.0.0.0 can be used to bind on all IPv4 addresses Joystick Support: ----------------- ***Important note**** 5/12/04 The joystick code has been modified to be more in line with the joystick functionality detailed in src/docs/joystick.txt ********************* Joystick should function on all compatible SDL platforms using the sdlquake2 binary as well as on linux using the linux kernel joystick API. If you want to build with joystick support (the default) set BUILD_JOYSTICK to YES in the Makefile. Have a look at src/docs/joystick.txt for the details There is a single linux specific option: * joy_dev : this sets the device name of the joystick to use (/dev/js*) Windows Support: ---------------- In order to compile the source: If you don't already have it, you'll need to download: http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/ABI/glext.h Commonly used commands: ----------------------- cd_nocd 0 // disable CD audio s_initsound 0 // disable sound _windowed_mouse 0 // disable mouse-grabbing gl_ext_multitexture 0 // disable OpenGL Multitexturing (requires a vid_restart) vid_ref <driver> // select a video driver (softx is the original X11-only, softsdl is SDL software, sdlgl is SDL OpenGL) vid_fullscreen 0 // disable fullscreen mode vid_restart // restart video driver snd_restart // restart sound driver basedir <dir> // point quake2 to where the data is gl_driver <libGL.so> // point quake2 to your libGL dedicated 1 // run quake2 as a dedicated server game <subdir> // load the quake2 mod in that directory sensitivity <int> // Adjust the sensivity (accelleration) of the mouse. crosshair <int> // Choose your crosshair [1-3] Normal [1-9] Q2Max crosshair_scale <int> // Scale your crosshair (Q2Max only for now...) skydistance <int> // Modify the skybox distance (useful for large maps) When using these commands on the quake2 command line, use +set to cause the variables be set before the config files are loaded (important for gl_driver). e.g. ./quake2 +set vid_ref glx +set gl_driver /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 Note that variables like basedir and game _require_ using +set to ensure the desired functionality. If quake2 crashes when trying to load an OpenGL based driver (glx, sdlgl), make sure its not loading the wrong libGL. Have a NVIDIA card and it _still_ crashes? Try export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so, and run quake2 again. Is lighting slow in OpenGL (while firing, explosions, etc.)? Disable multitexturing (gl_ext_multitexture 0; vid_restart). More information can be found in src/docs/. Known Bugs and Workarounds: --------------------------- FAQ: ---- Q: Quake2 crashes when starting a new game. A: It's most likely that the gamei386.so was not installed correctly. Do not use the version that comes with the 3.20 release! See the installation instructions above. Q: Quake2 doesn't want to load mods correctly with +game. A: Use +set game. Q: ErasorBot doesn't work. A: Not all the source was released for ErasorBot. See explanation above.
