Quake 2 High Resolution Weapons

22 04 15 - 14:09

One of the big advantages of the older id games is that you can remake the assets so they're much higher quality and it doesn't kill a semi-modern systems (mine is ~7 years old). A great example is something like this, high quality Quake 2 weapons! CTPEJIOK22 at has made some. Not all the weapons are done but he's provided screens of the rocket launcher, rail gun, grenade launcher and double barrel shotgun plus a video of the rail gun and rocket launcher.

He's keeping the origional look so they're not new designs. You can join the conversation about them over at the Quakeone thread.

Thanks to spirit at Quake 2 Cafe for posting about this.

Stop. SUPERQOT time!

03 04 15 - 11:01

Thanks to GameHacKeR from the comments for pointing it out (and me forgetting to see if Func_Msgboard has anything new :p ). SUPERQOT is a Quake mod that only lets the anything move when YOU'RE moving. That's right, if you let go of your mouse/keyboard, time freezes. Looks pretty sweet!  It's based on the game idea in SUPERHOT.

It includes Darkplace engine and Quake Shareware for you to start with. You can download Windows here, Mac here.
