Quake 3!!

Thanks to a lot of people on the Raspberry Pi forums, I was able to get Quake 3 up and running with a fairly small amount of effort.  As I don't own the game itself I'm simply playing the demo levels, but that's more than enough for now, as I've realised I'm particularly bad it would seem.  I wasn't ever much of a gamer, but was addicted to Quake 1 & spent a fair amount of time on Quake 3, but it would appear the years have robbed me of the meagre skills that I spent days and weeks of my youth building up.

But, regardless of the number of times I've had to start a new game, it's still bloody cool.  Playing it at 1080p on my 40" LCD looks beautiful!

As with the other tutorials I've created separated pages for them - hopefully this should give you everything you need to get Quake 3 up and running.  As always, let me know how you get on, and if you hit anything I haven't covered.


  1. Hello

    Recently I aquired Raspberry PI and installed rasbian OS (stable). I was disapointed with x11 performance (or lack of it), everything is slow. I thought, that I need to install some sort of graphic driver (because cpu is almost always at 100%, so there is probably no gpu acceleration at all), which enable gpu on RBP. But I didn't find any article about this, could you point me in right direction (or explain, how to boost performance)

  2. Great post your given information does help me a lot knowing that you have shared this information here freely.
