It's been over a year now since the Linux version of nQuake was updated. Now the time has come! Addon support and code cleanup for all. Enjoy!
There have been two versions released since last news update. They bring the same updates as nQuake version 2.7 and 2.8.
Changelog for nQuakesv version 1.5 and 1.6:
Since v2.6 there have been two updates. They bring bug fixes and minor improvements that make the setup process a bit more pleasant.
Combined changelog for version 2.7 and 2.8:
This version brings a more intelligent full version scanner, which means the user will less often have to browse around for the full version PAK file. If the user places setup files alongside the installer, nQuake will use these instead of downloading. The Quake PAK files will be backed up locally if the user chooses not to remove setup files during setup. A couple bugs have been fixed, and the code has been improved.
This version brings back the file association page during setup. Bugs have been fixed and the code has been generally improved. The Quake PAK files will now be backed up to the setup files folder (formerly known as distribution files folder) if the user chooses to keep them during setup. This will allow for very fast installations in the future. If any setup file has been updated it will be downloaded even if it's available locally, as always. Users who still cling on to nQuake versions lower than 2.0 will need to download a new nQuake executable from the website.
This is a small bug fix version that fixes the incorrectly calculated download size.
This update brings you addon support. You can finally download high resolution textures, team fortress and clan arena without so much as one extra click. Demo files and QTV files are now automatically associated during setup. And finally, the download size is now correctly calculated, after I don't know how many releases. Enjoy.
This version adds a shortcut to start all installed servers. They start minimized to reduce the obtrusiveness. Addons now get server configurations (for mvdsv) during setup. The update also fixes a CSS/image bug with QTV. With this update, the distribution files for the Team Fortress addon and Clan Arena addon have been updated, and confirmed to work.
In this version of nQuakesv, the default administrator name is your current Windows user. The server hostname also has a touch of the current user. This makes for simple "one click" installations during LAN parties.
This release fixes a few bugs that were causing quite a lot of problems with basically everything that nQuakesv does. In short, files were not dos2unixified correctly, which caused server scripts and configurations to not work.
Version 2.41 of nQuake brings one simple change. The configuration window now shows the current user as the default player name.
I am glad to announce that nQuake has finally reached Linux and Mac OS X. It started out as a small hack to make installing nQuake on Linux a bit smoother than running it through Wine. But as time went on, the installer grew more advanced. And as more time went on, it got ported to OS X (not much work since OS X is a UNIX operating system).
Sure, people might still want graphical installers for both Linux and Mac OS X (the users of the latter OS are probably more keen on seeing an installer with a GUI). But the bash script currently used is actually a lot faster than the GUI installer seen in Windows.... read more
