Dweebs wrote in to let us know that there is an unofficial non-Glide Quake 1 binary available from mfcn.ilo.de. The binary is supposed to work with NVIDIA, Matrox, and other non-3dfx cards and it is apparently compiled from the original Quake 1 source with some “minor fixes.” I can’t find any information on the license that this is released under, nor the modified source that it was compiled from.
As an editorial aside, I’d like to say that I’m not entirely sure why one wouldn’t rather compile the source from the QuakeForge project and use that instead. Comments?
Non-Glide Quake 1 Binary: glxquake.tar.gz
Update: This modification is released under the GPL and the source is available. My thanks to the author for clarifying this. Also, don’t let the URL (mfcn.ilo.de/glxquake.tar.gz/) trick you – there is a slash at the end and it takes you to an infomative page on this project, not an actual tarball. My apologies for the confusion.
