  • Multiview support
  • Tons of features to serve latest pro-gaming needs
  • Built in server browser & MP3 player control
  • Recorded games browser
  • Customization of all possible graphics elements of the game including Heads Up Display

Installation guide

To play Quakeworld you need the files pak0.pak and pak1.pak from the original Quake-game.

Install ezQuake to an existing Quake-installation

If you have an existing Quake-installation simply extract the ezQuake executable into your Quake-directory.

A typical error message when installing ezQuake into a pre-existing directory is about glide2x.dll missing. To get rid of this error, remove the file opengl32.dll from your Quake directory.

Upgrade an nQuake-installation

If you have a version of nQuake already installed you can upgrade ezQuake by extracting the new executable into the nQuake-directory.

Minimal clean installation

If you want to make a clean installation of ezQuake you can do this by following these steps:

  1. Create a new directory
  2. Extract the ezQuake-executable into this directory
  3. Create a subdirectory called id1
  4. Copy pak0.pak and pak1.pak into this subdirectory

Compiling

Compiling a Windows binary

Using Ubuntu Bash (WSL)

You can use the new Ubuntu Bash feature in Windows 10 to compile ezQuake for Windows.

To enable Bash for Windows, press the

Start
button and type
Turn Windows f
and select
Turn Windows features on or off
. Scroll down to
Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta)
and enable it.

Now press WINDOWS+I, go to

Update & security
and then to the
For developers
tab. Enable
Developer mode
.

Now press the

Start
button again and enter
bash
. Click it and install Bash.

Enter the following command to install all required prerequisites to build ezQuake:

sudo apt-get install -y git mingw-w64 build-essential libspeexdsp-dev dos2unix pkg-config

Now clone the ezQuake source code:

git clone https://github.com/ezQuake/ezquake-source.git ezquake

Make sure line endings are not CRLF:

dos2unix *.sh

Now build the ezQuake executable:

EZ_CONFIG_FILE=.config_windows make

Copy the compiled binary to your Quake folder, the binary is called

ezquake.exe
.

Using a Linux system

Make sure you have mingw32 toolchain installed. On Arch Linux it's

mingw-w64
(select complete group).

Build an executable using the following command:

EZ_CONFIG_FILE=.config_windows make

You can add

-jN
as a parameter to
make
to build in parallell. Use number of cpu cores plus 1 (e.g.
-j5
if you have a quad core processor).

Compiling a Linux binary

These instructions were tested on Ubuntu

Make sure you have the dependencies installed:

  • For Ubuntu 15.10-16.04
    sudo apt-get install git build-essential libsdl2-2.0-0 libsdl2-dev libjansson-dev libexpat1-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg-dev libspeex-dev libspeexdsp-dev
    
  • For Ubuntu 16.10+
    sudo apt install git build-essential libsdl2-2.0-0 libsdl2-dev libjansson-dev libexpat1-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libpng-dev libjpeg-dev libspeex-dev libspeexdsp-dev
    
  • For openSUSE Tumbleweed
    sudo zypper install -t pattern devel_C_C++
    sudo zypper install git pcre-devel Mesa-libGL-devel libSDL2-devel libjansson-devel libexpat-devel libcurl-devel libpng16-devel libjpeg8-devel libjpeg-turbo libsndfile-devel speex-devel speexdsp-devel libXxf86vm-devel
    

Clone the git repository:

git clone https://github.com/ezQuake/ezquake-source.git

Switch to

ezquake-source
path:
 cd ~/ezquake-source/
Run the compilation (replace 5 with the number of cpu cores you have +1):
make -j5
You can add
-jN
as a parameter to
make
to build in parallell. Use number of cpu cores plus 1 (e.g.
-j5
if you have a quad core processor).

Copy the compiled binary to your Quake folder, on 64bit linux the binary will be called

ezquake-linux-x86_64
.

Compiling an OS X binary

These instructions were tested on Mac OS X 10.10.

Get Homebrew

Run exactly as it says on the front page:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

Make sure you run the

brew doctor
as instructed before doing anything else.

Then run:

brew install sdl2 sdl2_net sdl2_image sdl2_gfx sdl2_mixer pcre jansson pkg-config speex speexdsp libsndfile

When it's done, just run

make
and it should compile without errors.

Creating an app bundle

Call from main ezquake-source directory, e.g. you probably do something like this:

make
sh misc/install/create_osx_bundle.sh

Current directory should have an

ezQuake.app
folder which is the app.

There will also be an

ezquake.zip
which basically just zips up the .app.
