How To Play Quake III On iPad

Time Doctor Disappointing. (54 comments)

I'm part of the team that works on ioquake3, the open source project that this ipad version is based on. This project (Beben III) has not contributed their changes back to ioquake3, or made them easily available for the public. It is extremely disappointing when bad players like this are given press and make money off of the backs of others.

Please do not spend your money on apps that are bad open-source contributors, and please do not give them press.

"Adults Only" OpenArena Now Playable On Raspberry Pi

Time Doctor Re:GPL your levels! (65 comments)

I founded the ioquake3 project with some friends in 2005.

The experience of working with the OpenArena project was similar to that described by HEMI_426. At this point they have cut off communication with us and I would be surprised, but happy, if that relationship ever improves.

So, now we are attempting to create our own freely distributable, creative commons licensed, game to distribute whenever anyone downloads ioquake3 that won't be "adults only" and won't have anything to do with OpenArena's direction. Until it is ready there are plenty of great games made with the ioquake3 engine and you can check them out here:

Time Doctor Re:lets see (951 comments)

quite a few went to Treyarch to work on Spider-Man and then from there to other places within the game industry. You can keep track with the most public Loki developer on icculus.org, Ryan Gordon.

Quake 3 For Android

Time Doctor Re:Running Demos (137 comments)

demos recorded on any 1.32 should work with ioquake3, you may need to run them with the demo command manually. I can't verify that they'll work or not with this android fork.

Wine Project Frustration and Forking

Time Doctor What is more frustrating... (470 comments)

...is that people continue to purchase software for Windows and waste their time attempting to make it run perfectly in Linux with a Windows API reimplementation, pretendulator, or whatever you want to call it.

I've been using Linux for 10 years now. During that time I've seen several small business that I've supported with purchases rise with Linux on the desktop and fall as the whims of Linux users move towards pretendulation of Windows software.

As long as it is acceptable to ship a product for Windows without seeing a drop-off in sales, people will continue to develop for Windows instead of Linux. Do not buy Windows products if you want to see them in Linux.

Learn from the unions, buy software made for Linux native if you want more of it. Continue to support businesses who do not support you and see desktop support for your operating system dwindle.

ioquake3 1.36 Goes Gold

Time Doctor Re:Steam? (176 comments)

The point is that it is the only place I could find to legitimately buy quake 3. Quite a few people I know have lost their Quake 3 disc or key.

ioquake3 1.36 Gold

Time Doctor Time Doctor writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Time Doctor writes "The de-facto standard in Quake 3 engine technology, ioquake3, has hit version 1.36 recently. It includes a garbage bag full of improvements: in-game VOIP; optional external Mumble (voip); OpenAL; IPV6; Anaglyph stereo rendering; Full x86-64 architecture support; Rewritten PowerPC JIT compiler, with ppc64 support; New SPARC JIT compiler, with support for both sparc32 and sparc64; Improved console command auto-completion; Persistent console command history; Improved QVM (Quake Virtual Machine) tools; Colored terminal output on POSIX operating systems; Multiuser support on Windows systems (user-specific game data is stored in their respective Application Data folders); PNG format support for textures. Of course there are even more fixes for security holes and other bugs in there. So if you don't like ads and queues in your Quake 3 experience, get a copy off of Steam and copy your data files and key into your ioquake3 directory."
