    Are you sure that's not an April Fools joke? I mean, look at the date it was posted.

    Re: quake2 running on html5

    Must be a really good hoax: http://code.google.com/p/quake2-gwt-port/

    I just pulled the source down but haven't looked much at it:
    Code:
    hg clone https://quake2-gwt-port.googlecode.com/hg/ quake2-gwt-port
    from the readme:
    Code:
    Google's HTML5 port of Bytonic Software's Java port of Id Software's Quake II
    
    To install and run: http://http://code.google.com/p/quake2-gwt-port/wiki/BuildingAndRunning
    Eclipse setup: http://http://code.google.com/p/quake2-gwt-port/wiki/EclipseSetup
    Niether of the 2 urls work though

    Yeah, Google have got to be the best at April fools, they really put the effort in! I wonder if they have projects close to the end of March specifically for this...

    They don't work cause you have an extra 'http://' in front of them.

    Whoops

    So is it a hoax or not then...

    Will I have to go through the whole process of building it to fins out it says "Haha April Fools". Admittedly it really doesn't look like a hoax to me, not now I have the correct URL (BTW the url was copied straight from the README file as was)

    I'm running a dedicated server build now...

    It provides this url for a list when it doesn't work: http://code.google.com/p/quake2-gwt-...atibleBrowsers

    I have chromium installed but it can't be the latest, which I find a bit strange as I am running Arch....and I have run it with the suggested options...
