Yes, sound is still an issue, although some people apparently have it working. Possibly another Distro? I"ve only tried it on Debian

As for the CD key, can"t help you there – I"m also playing the demos. You"ll probably haver to try some less legitimate sites

I"ve only played the first demo level so far, but there were definitely bots there by default – they kept killing me!!

Hmmm.... Defintely no-one killing me

I took quake three from the zip file on the RPi home page blog, and the pak files from Tass's how-to blog link, taking the zipped together 9 files and copying to the approp directory... Any idea if I'm missing anything?

Odd. Which game are you selecting and are you typing in a CD key?

I run the latest Debian squeeze and am connected to the net by wifi (which is runniing happily from its powered hub once its booted correctly (which on average takes 3.14 reboot attempts before working))

downloaded the quake 3 zip from RPi home page which has link address

and unzipped to home/pi/quake/quake3. Then downloaded the pak files from the zip file with the 9 pk3 files on this page

and copied into the baseq3 directory and did sudo chmod+x file for the .arm and .sh files.

./ launches the game

When I go to demo I get an error loading map file maps/q3dm6.bsp and it drops back to menu

If I go to single player, I get a choice of 4 maps (q3dm1, q3dm7 q3dm17 and q3tourney2) which appear to come with various bots. When I launch, it goes through loading the map, various weapons etc, unnamed player (me) and then I get a flash of a message about a client...(?) and enter the game - but no bots there.

When I exit, there are console messages

At the top of the screen, the console shows some ^1Fatal AAS not initialised errors but then it launches R_Init which all seems OK apart from not getting the .wav files (hence no sound). It parses 9(?) arenas and 6 bots.

It can show bot faces when choosing the single player game in the game menus so knows something about them... Nothing gets written to botlib.log.

The AAS (arena awareness scheme?) is the bit at the heart of the AI for the bots I think so looks bad getting fatal errors when starting, but on exiting, I get an AAS shutdown message which all looks normal

Not sure if it's necessary, but I use sudo ./

Ahhem! Reinstalled and it all works... should have tried this sooner... assume that the wifi network lost a bit en route first time of downloading...

All is well and I can be shot - will leave it to the scouts to take revenge on the bots

Sorry to all who worried on my behalf...

Where is the download for Quake 3? I've searched for it everywhere and can't find it.

Right. I looked on the front page articles several times and didn't see it. This time I (only just) spotted the link:

Hi, I have what looks like a path problem::~$ locate libvcos
~/quake3$ ./
./ioquake3.arm: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I think libvcos is part of the firmware and I"ve not really tinkered with the stock Debian image much other than creating myself as a new user. Get the same error when running as the pi and root users too.

I"ve run the rpi-update script to update the firmware.

Any ideas?

Try "sudo ldconfig" ?

Cheers Dom, that's moved it along, now I'm getting:1187219726: vchiq_lib: Very incompatible VCHIQ library - cannot retrieve driver version
* failed to open vchiq instance Think it's time to clear the SDCard down and start again, I must have done something daft.

No, I think you have an older Quake III build with newer firmware (/opt/vc/lib).

Quake needs relinking with updated libraries. Here's my version:

It feels like I've nearly got Quake running on my Pi, but when I try to launch the game I get an error message, "User Interface is Version 3, Expected 6"...

Is my data file too new?

Any other ideas...?

It's covered in the ioquake3 help pages:

Looks like you need to install the pak3 patches

hope that helps

Hey everyone,so I recently tried to install Quake 3 and no matter what I do I keep getting the error below. I have installed the download from hexxeh, replaced the ioquake3.arm with the one dom has above  (becuase I was getting that error beforehand and used chmod on everything I need to.I have also tried to replace pak0 but it still is giving me that cheksum warning. I have also update my firmware using the tool hexxeh put out. What should I do? [spoiler]pi@raspberrypi:~/quake3$ sudo ./

I'm not able to help as I've been fighting the same problem for a couple of days.  I wanted to compile Q3 for myself so with a clean Debian install cloned the Q3 GIT amended the to suit building on the Pi (lib and include dirs) and ran a build.   Worked fine so I ran the rpi-update to get the more recent firmware and repeated the build fo Q3 which now gives the GLimp_Init() error.

Has anyone got any ideas on what I can look at to work out what's wrong please?

What ARM/GPU memory split are you using? Try using the 128M one.

Re: Quake III

Posted: Thu May 10, 2012 2:50 pm
by NeverBelieveStudios
by that I assume you mean "sudo rpi-update 128"? Still is doing the same thing.

Also Velophile, I too was trying to compile and got an error like bcmhost_init() which I assume cause my paths were wrong (ARM_LIBS and the include even though I thought I set them right). May I ask what your variables were set too, I know they will not pertain to me but I would be able to put the folders in the spot where you did.  Did you do anything else to make sure it compiled?

I'm compiling on the pi so I set them to (something like, as I'm doing this from memory):



I can get it to compile but get the same error as you.

I stil cannot figure out how to compile the game, for the life of me but I did get the game to run.

I am extremely embarrassed on how I got it to run, I rebooted and it started working. I am the guy that usually tells everyone to reboot before they come to me with problems. But oh well at least its working.

Thanks again dom, using rpi-update 128, ldconfig and a reboot has sorted it for me too.
