SDL Quake Patch

December 30th, 1999 by Crusader

Loki’s lead coder Sam Lantinga released a patch earlier this week for his Simple DirectMedia Layer port of id Software’s classic GPL’ed first-person shooter Quake. The changelog for this patch includes:

  • SDL CD-ROM support (contributed by Mark Baker <>)
  • Fixes crash when there is no soundcard (in the original quake code)
  • Makes the ASM routines a configure option, disabled by default.
  • Defaults to 640×400 resolution

The SDL Quake source, patch, and shareware pak file can all be downloaded from:
