So instead of posting all my findings in the free Quake games topic I’ve decided to create my own, with links to source ports and texture packs for these games. Hopeful this will help people experience better these old shooters in modern OSes with updated graphics and support to bigger resolutions.

Note 1: The games from the Bethesda Launcher don’t include their respective expansion packs (like Quake’s two mission packs) so you’ll still have to buy them from Steam or somewhere else. Oh well, beggars can’t be choosers, I think.

Note 2: When downloading from GitHub look to the right side of the page and you’ll see the “Releases” section below the “About” part. Clicking on the text in that section will take you to the downloads page. I suggest using a download manager since the site’s speed can be quite slow at times.

WOW! Thanks, @carvalho20ptc :heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation:

Definitely bookmarked this.:heart_eyes::sunglasses::star_struck:

@delenn13 and @markwr Thank you. :smile:
It took me some good googling around to find these and make a thread. I hope you find it useful.

BTW I’ve juist added another texture pack to the “Quake 1” section which I forgot to do so: Quake Reforged, which gives new textures to the enemies and the mission packs.


#5

Good read! Just wondering why you call them “source ports”?


#6

I wondered too, so I read this:


#7

@pegasusz Thanks. But yeah, a source port, as @markwr mentioned is a software which allows you to play old games in modern OSes without resorting to virtual machines, DOSBox configuration or even buying a “vintage” PC setup with an old version of Windows just to play a certain game.

For instance the old DOOM games have GZDOOM and Risen 3D, Commander Keen has Commander Genius and so on.

Each source port has its features, like allowing you to install texture packs and/or mods, setup the controls, change the resolution, use cheats, level/map selection and even allow you to play custom music.


#8

Thank you for the info :grinning: I thought the Steam version of Quakes should be up and running in Windows 10, guess I will still need to install the modifications once I start digging in the series :yum:

You’re welcome. I hope you have fun. :wink:
