Re: Quake 1 Port, Optimization Questions

Hello again,

I managed to compile this and it works great. i'm able to adjust the resolution in the runtime option but does anyone know the command to disable vsync, as i'm locked at 60hz. I'd like to see the performance at 640x480.

Re: Quake 1 Port, Optimization Questions

I love this! I've been following this for a while and glad to see it's being worked on still. I'm hoping at some point I'll be able to have a Quake box on permanently behind my TV ready to play my friends online at any time. Is it possible to run this at lower resolutions for higher framerates? or a...

Thanks that worked, but trying to change the res to 800x600 with no luck, stays at 1080. Changed the config in both id1 folders! Any ideas? Thanks again!

Re: NEW: Darkplaces Quake engine up and running on Raspberry

How do I center the video on my tv. It seems to be shifted to a left bottom corner leaving a border on the top and right side!

Re: Quake 1 Port, Optimization Questions

Hi,

I was wondering now the Rpi 2 is out, will any work continue on getting Quake 1 to run nicely on the pi?

Cheers

Re: Thinking about getting one

The Pi is a great platform to learn linux, thats the main reason I got mine. I love logging into it via ssh (I dont use x) and getting my hands dirty in the shell, its the best way to learn, and using this forum at the same time. I also have the same background as you, get involved, its fun! :)
