Quake 2 Amiga
« on: November 04, 2002, 09:45:16 PM »
Has anyone else bought Quake 2 yet?

I bought it at the show on saturday and I must say it runs very well
on my BlizzardPPC 210Mhz.  If you've got the kit for it and havn't
played the game before then I recommend you buy it.

If you already have some sort of Amiga PPC Hardware it's really enough for the game. No AmigaOne required to play this game.

Isn't this Amiga One thing just a play on the Magazine title "ONE AMIGA?"

(Wonder how many people this offends, not that, that is my game you understand!?!) :-D

No, A1 version of Quake 2 is not ready, only the
OS 3.x version (which will also run on OS4) up to now. An OS 4 Update for Quake 2 will be done later...

Got this for the Playstation ages ago for a tenner. How much did you pay for it?
 
Annoying to play with a pad though.

The Playstation version of Quake2 doesn't even come close to the PC (and now Amiga) version. OpenGL is just so smooth - and the better your card, the better it looks. :-)

>How much did you pay for it?

It was £30 for the Hyperion disk and a PC version of the game bundled
together.  A bit pricey but it puts food on the table for Amiga
dealers and developers alike.  I think you might be able to buy the
Hyperion disk alone, not sure of this though.  You do get a load of
mods as well though.

>Annoying to play with a pad though.

Hyperion have included an option for CD32 pads and the PSX port
adapter thingy so you can re-create frustration if you want. : )

I don't know the usual UK game prices as well, but at least in Germany it is cheaper - now, when it is introduced to the Amiga market - than even old Amiga games like Heretic II (several years old) cost NOW. I guess it will be the same in UK too ?

And that's for a newly released title. Other newly released titles are more expensive (compare the prices of Quake 2 and Tales of Tamar and Software Tycoon)

Price calculation was a bit "tight" for Quake 2 due to the price of the Quake 2 Data CD (which we had to prefinance) and such. Also there are of course dealer margins, and at lowerprice-games you have to be careful - not that in the end your calculation does not work out.

At least currently this is not possible.
Only both Amiga port and PC CD together are
available.

Remember: We had to prefinance the Q2 CDs.

>Hyperion have included an option for CD32 >pads and the PSX port

Input Devices supported: Mouse (including Mousewheel), Keyboard, PSX Port, CD32 Pad,
PC Analog Joystick (would make a bit a strange device for Quake 2, though :) ).

Sound supported: Paula or AHI

Graphics Supported: 3D Accelerated or Software Renderer

Oh by the way, thanks for all your hard work Steffan (that goes for
at Hyperion too).

I got quake II from my friend for PeeCee. Its been ages since I last installed it. Quake III is a favorite, but I hope they make that for Amiga.  Would be nice to play Amiga users with PeeCee version of Quake II.  Bring it on...... BRING IT ON!!!  ;-)

btw.... My bro digs Quake and owns at it. ;-)

Well, Q3 is already ported for Linux and MacOS, and a port for Amiga alone would be too expensive. The only chance would be if id eventually release the source-code (I do not think this will happen before end of 2003 if at all). And even then, if we'd go into another port of a released-Source id-game would depend on the sales we get with Q2 now I'd say :)

@magicsn:

How's it again with Q2 mods? They have to be recompiled or something if I'm not mistaken?

It's not download and run like Q1?
