QuakeWorld for AmigaOS and MorphOS

This is a port of id software's Quake World for AmigaOS 3.x, AmigaOS 4.x, MorphOS, WarpOS and PowerUp. QuakeWorld is a multi-player specific version of Quake, optimized for playing over the internet. It allows a server to predict the movement of an object based on its current speed and trajectory, so the server doesn't need to receive continuous data from the client and can deal much better with lags.

Installation
Just copy the executables into your Quake directory (where the id1 directory resides).

Starting QuakeWorld client
The program qwcl will automatically use CyberGfx, when cybergraphics.library was successfully opened, otherwise it tries to open an 320x200 AGA screen. Sound is played using Paula by default, except MorphOS and AmigaOS 4.x, which default to AHI. You can force AHI with the -ahi option though. Note: Make sure that you have set the stack size to 500000 bytes before starting the PowerUp or AmigaOS4 versions. The other ports have automatic stack extension. When running on CyberGfx you will first be asked for a screen mode. The program stops in the Quake console where you want to connect to a QuakeWorld server.

Starting QuakeWorld server
When the qwsv program was started it loads the first map and awaits user input. Use map <name> to select a specific map or gamedir <path> to use a different mod. More informations can be found on the net (yes I know I should write something more here ;). You need qwprogs.dat in the id1 directory to run a server! Note: Make sure that you have set the stack size to 500000 bytes before starting the PowerUp or AmigaOS4 versions. The other ports have automatic stack extension.

Where is the Quake World server?

We are having problems with the bandwidth, so I had to shut it down. The enforced QoS made playing on it not much fun anyway. Especially for Amiga gamers I may suggest Bigfoot's nice QW server (without lags): asgaard.morphos-team.net:27501.
