Q1 Engines with Extended Limits

Postby hondobondo » Thu Mar 24, 2016 12:09 am

I'm trying to compile a list of the engines with not just extended map limits but extended model and sound limits. I know of a few

Enhanced GlQuake (dead link)
Darkplaces http://icculus.org/twilight/darkplaces/
MHQuake https://sourceforge.net/projects/mhquake/
DirectQ https://www.quaddicted.com/files/engines/directq/

I know FitzQuake has a couple of branches but the engine chokes on some of the models that EGLQ and DP can run. Are there any others that anyone knows about?

FTE ?
I know FrikaC made a cgi-bin version of the quakec interpreter once and wrote part of his website in QuakeC :) (LordHavoc)

That message is for mdl vertices, looks like Quakespasm has:
#define MAXALIASVERTS 2000 //johnfitz -- was 1024

Looks like FTE or grabbing the Quakespasm source code and changing some constants and recompiling are your options.

tbh, if you have that many verts you're probably better off going with iqm or md3, depending on engine support.
mdl with other 2000 verticies is kinda silly. you're just going to end up with a whole load of invisible degenerate triangles.

/me wonders if rmqe would suffice.

or yeah, just get everyone to use fte. that works for me. :)

My newest version of Qrack supports extended limits, ie wARPSPASM and InTheShadowsMod; It also currently supports BSP2, although when adding bsp2 support i somehow broke the original skies! UGH! but, i havent extended anything for model verts. I'll post an official release when i get the skies working again, and re-gain access to my FTP site. :|
