Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

I compiled q3lite on a Pi 3 B+ and was getting the same error as Kevin. "...WARNING: could not set the given mode (-2)" So I started from scratch on a new SD card, but during this process realized I had missed the "sudo rpi-update" on my original attempt. So I went back to the original SD card and ...

Hi, Thanks for your reply, I tried doing all of that, but still exactly the same. So I've reinstalled Raspbian from scratch and that made it work. Thanks. Now is there a way of getting the *. pk3 files from the original Openarena game that you used to be able to download from the RaspberryPi shop t...

Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

The text editing issue is usually a problem with versions of SDL2 newer than 2.0.4. The Q3lite binary first looks for SDL libraries in /usr/local/lib/q3lite. If it doesn't find them there then it looks in the system directory /usr/local/lib. If it finds SDL libraries there that are newer than 2.0.4,...

Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

I just pushed new updates to the repository that put some of the framework in place to get the VC4 OpenGL renderer working in the future. Q3lite now loads OpenGL functions at run time, which will allow the game binary to switch between different renderers (OpenGL or OpenGL ES). The code that sets th...

Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

That's a great piece of work, @cdev-tux. I've experienced some issues compiling ioquake3 on stretch, but not such problem with your version.

Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

Ok, I think I see the problem. You’re creating links that redirect to the old Broadcom drivers, which conflict with the Mesa drivers I believe. As I understand it, the drivers were renamed on Stretch to avoid that conflict. The game needs to use the libbrcmEGL.so and libbrcmGLESv2.so libraries that ...

Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

I don’t have any experience with adding or switching desktops on Raspbian, so I’m limited on suggestions related to those changes. But a quick look at your script shows a few items of concern. Try changing the lines in your /boot/config.txt to: framebuffer_depth=16 #framebuffer_ignore_alpha=1 Then r...

Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

Ok, the xinput stuff looks good. It looks like the game may be running in TTY mode. Start the game from the app menu and open the quake3 console. Scroll all the way up and see if the first line says:

Try running the game from a terminal by typing "sudo q3lite" and post the xinput results again, it looks like the xinput id=10 is being truncated.

Re: Q3lite - Quake III Arena for the Raspberry Pi

Can you open the /usr/local/bin/q3lite file in a text editor and change the line:

Code: Select all

xinput_id=””

to

xinput_id=”6 7 8 10”

Then try the game and see how it runs.

Ah, ok. There’s information about this issue in section 2.4 of the Q3lite FAQ . We’ll have to do some troubleshooting to get it running. I appreciate your patience with this since it’s a workaround for an SDL2 issue. Can you type “xinput” into a terminal and post the results? Also, are you running a...

The default directory for config files is /home/pi/.q3a/baseq3, but if the user name is different than “pi” then the installer should detect the logged in user’s home directory and create a subdirectory th...

Hi Martin,

Try compiling again with the default "dev" code branch. It has additional bug fixes which should solve your issue. Let me know if that works for you. Thanks.
