id Software have released the (supposedly much improved!) source code for all the campaigns included in the 2021 re-release of Quake (id1, hipnotic, rogue and dopa) under the GPLv2: https://github.com/id-software/quake-rerelease-qc
This repository contains the QuakeC source code for the four codebases that were used in the 2021 re-release of Quake: the base campaign, Scourge of Armagon, Dissolution of Eternity, and Dimension of the Machine. Dimension of the Past shares the same codebase as Dimension of the Machine.
In comparison with the original QuakeC, these codebases have been updated to replace all instances of strings with placeholder strings that can be used for localization. This requires some support on the engine side in order to handle printing messages correctly. There have also been bug fixes and modifications to behaviors from the original game.
These progs also use some advanced QuakeC features that are only available in modern compilers.
I’m planning on a 2022 “preview” for my YouTube channel and would love to see what everyone is working on! Mods, maps, mini-episodes, textures, sounds, music, artwork or anything Quake-related that will be coming out in the new year would be appreciated.
@me or message me here on Discord with a screenshot, link to a video or other media I can use in a video and most importantly a short explanation of what you are working on.
You have until December 7th to submit your creations to him either via the Quake Mapping Discord or by mail to langoQlanQparty@gmailQcom (replace the Quakey Qs with dots).
Quake Eargasm is a sound replacement for Quake by ChristianIce (monsters currently untouched) which includes additional audio resources for modders, all at a high quality. Go check it out!

It’s the last of your teen years, so enjoy those Rotfish while they still have some flavor to them. Even if they can’t be gibbed!
