Open Quartz is a project to supply artwork to create a full game based around the Quake source code. The pak0 module contains content (maps, models, graphics and sounds) and Quake code which controls the behavior and rules of the game. There is also a playable version available that ships with the Darkplaces engine by LordHavoc. The final goal of Openquartz is to become a 100% replacement for the original Quake game data that runs in all the free Quake engines available at present.
Nexuiz is a fast-paced, chaotic, and intense multiplayer first-person shooter game, focused on providing basic, old style deathmatch. It is extremely modder-friendly. Nexuiz is built on the power of the Darkplaces engine, which is a heavily modified version of the original Quake. Darkplaces features realtime lighting and stencil shadows, bumpmapping, gloss, bloom, and totally rewritten network code that supports up to 64 players on a single server.
Re: Mac OS X port
> There is no OS X port? Only the PC/Win
> release version for download?
the mac binaries are in the .zip, you just need to set them executable
Freshmeat edited the release announcment rendering it useless
Those new weapons can be obtained through a SEPERATE PACKAGE you can find on the open Quartz Website!!! The .tar.gz packages has NOT CHANGED!!!
The freshmeat team removed that information from the release annoucements for undisclosed reasons.
