Quake Advent Calendar 2013

Postby Spirit » Sun Dec 01, 2013 5:27 pm

We are doing a "24 days 24 people will showcase something about Quake" kind of advent calendar at Quaddicted. Posts are something old, something new, something obscure, something you should check out. Monitor the frontpage at https://www.quaddicted.com/ for new ones, I'll post a quick daily link here though.

I hope you will enjoy this experiment. Please share the posts with others, post to non-Quake forums, spread the word about Quake. An event like this seems like a good opportunity (before QExpo 2016 ;) ).

1st December - Spirit

(I had to chip in myself because I could not get any QW guys motivated to write it...)

QuakeWorld is the Internet-optimised multiplayer part of Quake. The European Quake League is a 4-on-4 team deathmatch league. Suddendeath (SD) from Sweden and The Viper Squad (tVS) from Finland are two clans which were both founded in the hey-days of Quake in 1997. Tonight, at 20:30 CET (that is 6 and a half hours from now), they will face each other in the grand final of the 17th season of the EQL in a best-of-five showdown. (Image by bps.)

If you own Quake, you can spectate the match in-game using QTV in the ezQuake engine. Monitor a QTV browser and when the game appears, click the Watch link and open it with ezQuake. nQuake offers an easy installer for ezQuake for beginners.

For everyone else there will be a livestream at the suddendeathTV channel at Twitch.tv, hopefully with live commentary.

^^^ EDIT - Makaqu software engine ^^^
A great job of software simulation. At first glance of the image, I thought this was going to be about Makaqu. Maybe I will post a comparison shot later when I get to my comp.

Come play the Quake Shareware in your browser. Either singleplayer or even deathmatch on some of the maps Scampie showed us the other day:

Play the Quake Shareware singleplayer episode at http://webquake.quaddicted.com/

Play Quake Deathmatch in your browser at http://webquake.quaddicted.com/WebQuake ... .com:26000

(Firefox or Chrome/ium work best)

Just because I stopped updating here does not mean it is not continuing. Would be great if someone else could take over updating here or maybe even promote Quake outside the remaining active "local" communities!
