    meh!

    Now.... if there was a re-release of the original Far Cry but done right, then I'd be excited, but Quake? It was very of it's time, just like Duke Nukem.

    While 3D games don't age well, just sometimes they are a nice nostalgia hit! Plus it's great that this both works on such a variety of systems and they're giving it away for free if you have steam/bethesda store copies of the original. EA take note please.

    Re: Quake remaster released for 25th anniversary celebration

    i like this bit in the steam release notes

    I bought Quake already, how do I get access to the new release?
    Previous owners of Quake on Steam will automatically receive the new version with a free download. It may already be updated by the time you read this! Additionally, if you didn't own Scourge of Armagon and Dissolution of Eternity on Steam, you will also be granted access to the original versions of those in-game
    and now I barely scrape above minimum requirements for the game, with a 1gb 7770.

    Re: Quake remaster released for 25th anniversary celebration

    I know a guy that "lost his life" to quake.
    Let me explain.
    First he played a lot of quake and was pretty damn good at it too,,,,, and smoked a lot of weed.
    Then warcraft came out, and he switched to that, and smoked a lot of weed.
    And this kid he was actually pretty smart, if not for the weed i would have pegged him for going places ( i myself was also a looser pothead at the time, though i did go places )
    Anyway as it turned out he never got off his ass again, and he barely became 30 years old before he was put on early retirement, and so have to live the rest of his "life" on a pension.
    I never think he got to try and have a job.

    I did not play much quake myself, but if it have old school gamepolays as CTF and TDM i might take it for a spin, cuz i do recall it have weapon ASO spawn in map, and you only have to choose what figure to play with which was easy as they had same abilities.

    If they did the same with soldier of fortune,,,,,,, you guys would never hear from me again.

    Re: Quake remaster released for 25th anniversary celebration

    Quake and Half-Life probably is the kings of all time of FPS shooters... and nope I wont get my hands down.

    The platforms fostered special gameplay and for today also one of the actual competetative platforms, if you look into mods and more bound to them as in how it all started.

    Quake deathmatch over a local area network, ahh... I've just been taken back twenty years. Anybody under the age of 25 just wouldn't understand.

    I hope it still supports LAN play with a local server.

    I wonder if that will apply to people who bought on GoG as well

    I did something similar, though at home, and with 10Base2 .... y'know, thinnet coax,
    t-pieces, BNC connectors and a couple of terminators. I still have it, BTW, though it hasn't been used in years and am about to pull it out of walls, etc, and use it to feed, once I make up my mind, either Cat-?? (7, probably) for 2.5Gbe, or push the boat out and use 10Gbe backbone of fibre, local runs in copper.

    Re: Quake remaster released for 25th anniversary celebration

    Ooh, thin Ethernet... I think all my cards got thrown out a while back. And with them my ability to boot DOS/Windows3.x from a Novell server. Still seems odd that network booting used to be common place and now just doesn't happen.

    In case you didn't know, the point of 2.5GbE and 5GbE was to use lower frequencies than 10GbE so they could work over Cat5e because there is just so much Cat5e cabling installed out there. 5GbE can supposedly drive a 100m run of Cat6 cable, so unless the East wing an West wing of Saracen Manor are particularly far apart you should be fine with Cat 6. Higher category cables are less bendy, so a pain to put in.

    Fibre would be better, but seems a bit of a faff for home use.

    Yeah, I was sort-of aware. I can never remember the supposed length limitations on copper at various categories, though.

    I have 2.5GBe built in to a few things, like the NAS, but not 5GBe. If I'm going to upgrade it at all, I'll go straight to 10, not 5. As for Saracen Manor, it's not so much East and West wings, more a case of front of house, bottom floor, to back of house, top floor, via a service duct that provides a built-in access route but mandates a fairly long cable run. At the moment, the cable modem and router and on first floor (Euro definition, not US) so cabling has to go down one, along a bit, up three, along a bit more, down another one, to get there. A mental guesstimate gives me something like 30m cable run, point to point. But moving the modem and router down one, then running one cable back to original location, and another up through the house, will shorten the run but might need another switch (or a bigger one). That run right up and through is what might justify the fibre bit. Though I suspect not.

    Do I need 10GBe? Nope.

    Do I kinda want it?

    But more pragmaticaaly, I need to do a more accurate 'site survey' (i.e. measure up exact run routes), and cost it up both ways. My suspicion is that if I'm going to have to get that long run done, it might just be worth doing it right, and doing it once.

    Oh, and it's a blend (at the moment) of wired copper and WiFi 5 and 6 (moving towards 6). A couple of machines would benefit from much faster wired speeds, or I could just use a wired backbone between Mesh nodes on wifi. That said, I'm sorely tempted to get some basic managed switches and break my stuff down into some basic VLANs for security reasons. Still thinking about how far to go.
