Leuven, Belgium - 2. February, 2005

Registered users of both AmigaOS 4.0 and Quake 2 can now find a first OS4-Native beta version of Quake 2 in Hyperion Entertainment's download area. Note that this version is restricted to software rendering but should otherwise be fully functional.

Oh no! Games are sooo counter productive and should not be released at all. Please focus on frameworks or whatever...

I feel the heat already, haha. Good show!

Great work Hyperion

I'll try to find time tonight - have to copy the Quake 2 installation from A1200 first (and I assume I need the map pack too, yes?)

grumpy:why copy it from the 1200? ...much faster just to reinstall (should anyway) ... what map pack? , quake 2 downloads maps if not present but sure download packs if you can as it will save alot of "slow downloads"...

I've logged in & still cannot see any files to download. I can see the Freespace & OS4Update files but not Q2. What am I doing wrong?

1-Thanks Hyperion!

2-Do i need to install the old Amiga cd version?
The old installer complains about ixnet.library isn't the same version of ixemul.library.

@Toaks

Gotcha! I was gonna grab the executable first, read any readme's with it & order the game.

No probs. I'll order it from somewhere the weekend.

ikir:i installed it with the old installer (long ago) with no probs on os4, just make sure you use the correct files (copy installer cd to hdd/ram: and assign it and replace the files that needed ppc (wos) with 68k installer files and so on, no probs at all...

but i havent looked at this package which was released today so... anyway .. my guess is...this still apply for the q2 os4 version that was released today!.

You don't strictly need to unpack the pak files, it will work without that. If you install on an SFS partition, you won't even notice much difference.

I don't really understand what you're saying there. I've tried inserting the Hyperion Quake II installation CD into one drive, and the pc Quake 2 CD into another drive.

When I run the installer script, it created a directory 'Quake2' and puts wizard.library, WesSupport.library and installer-cookie into the directory. It then says "copying base files to your harddisk', but the mouse pointer locks up and there is no cd activity. I then reboot, and the partition has to validate.

I take it that it is not as simple as running the cd installer then?

Same here. Probably the installer_ppc check something for WarpOS. Try to download the installer 68k from Hyperion Website.

What the next?
Shogo I hope, my copy is laying here from years!
Never been able to play Shogo in a decent way on my old 1200 PPC with Warp3d.
