The fastest programmer on Earth, relnev, let us know that he’s released version 0.0.5 of hisQuake 2 sourceport ( Changes:

  • Updates to Linux Makefile (it was missing a few files).
  • Added (Software SDL Renderer).
  • Added (SDL OpenGL Renderer).
  • Fixed the texture wrapping with movies.
  • Enabled the OpenGL extensions under Linux.
  • Added support for GL_ARB_multitexture.
  • Mouse Wheel (SDL buttons 4 and 5).
  • Fixed bug with changing the sound options in game (using the menus).
  • Fixed Makefile to build both build_debug and build_release by default.

    [br]SDL makes it happen.[br][br](especially for cross platform support; outside of snotty x86 code)

    Is it possible to use the extra buttons on the mouse in SDL games? I have a logitech dual optical, and I can’t seem to get anything to map to the extra thumb button. (It maps the same as if I clicked the wheel)

    Okay, used to have a pub/idstuff directory under which zillions of quake2 levels lived. Now there’s nothing there …. somewhere out there is an ftp archive stuffed with single player quake2 levels … anybody have any idea where it might be?

    I’m not at home and cant compile this.

    Does the SDL client look as good as the q2hack?

    This may be related to the up until recently fixed Quake 3 problem:

    [brandon@localhost debugi386]$ ./quake2
    couldn’t exec default.cfg
    couldn’t exec config.cfg
    Console initialized.

    ——- sound initialization ——-
    sound sampling rate: 11025
    Segmentation fault
    [brandon@localhost debugi386]$

    Darn …

    No more q2hack? Hmm, I’ll still need it for a while I guess!
    After compiling default Makefile (compiled without errors btw) and copying the appropriate files (and deleting ~/.q2/), I get an ugly software Quake 2 without probs. BUT, when I try to enable OpenGL I get the following errors:

    setting mode 4: 800 600
    1992k surface cache
    ——- Loading ——-
    ref_gl version: GL 0.01
    setting mode 3: 640 480
    GL_VENDOR: (null)
    GL_RENDERER: (null)
    GL_VERSION: (null)
    GL_EXTENSIONS: (null)
    Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Anyone who can help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again,

    I downloaded the Q2test and the full updates, and it seems to work fine, except I only have access to 3 maps. The graphics are a little jerky in SDLGL, but okay. This is on a P3-800 with an Nvidia GeForce2MX200 under Mandrake 8.1.
