    Re: Doom 3 BFG Edition native like the original?

    It looks like yes, but no idea when.

    These comments should be useful.

    I'd suggest e.g. dhewm3.

    For the mouse issue:

    Put e.g. usbhid.mousepoll=1 in the grub config, to poll for mouse movements at 1000hz rather than the default of 125hz.

    And for mouse acceleration:

    So look at the messages that UT2004 puts on the screen. Anything about sound?


    You probably have a bad download. Try downloading it again.

    [SOLVED] Re: Can not save game in Yamagi Quake II

    I would guess that you've been messing with your files as root, so the permissions are messed up.

    First simple test:
    touch /home/rodney/.yq2/baseq2/save/current/server.ssv

    What error does that...

    Re: Yamagi Quake 2 - Won't Run

    No, that's wrong.

    I'm not sure if yamagi needs the data files installed somewhere in your home dir, and be run from there.

    But *NO* game should be run as the root user. Example of why it's so...

    Re: trying to run Quake 1 with Darkplaces

    First write a script that runs the game. Then change the Exec= line to point to that script.

    Remove your useless MimeType= line.

    To create the script, use e.g.:

    mkdir ~/bin
    echo "cd...

    Re: trying to run Quake 1 with Darkplaces

    Sounds like you should prefix that command with ./

    i.e.

    ./darkplaces-linux-686-glx

    Which means to run the file which is in the current directory, rather than look in $PATH.

    If that...
  16. Re: Port - Play Doom 1 or Quake 1 with Linux in multiplayer?

    Darkplaces has *many* options, which you can tweak. I actually prefer lots of blood, so use:

    cl_stainmaps 1
    cl_particles_blood 1
    cl_particles_blood_alpha 1
    cl_particles_blood_bloodhack 1...
  17. Re: Port - Play Doom 1 or Quake 1 with Linux in multiplayer?

    For Quake 1, I'd recommend DarkPlaces - works great in multiplayer.
