Q3 Game Source
01:43 PM
    Discuss This!

Many thanks to Gaz Iqbal who sent word that the Quake 3 game source code is now available (for any mod makers out there). Robert Duffy (of id Software) updated his .plan file with the announcement. Here's the info:

" The game source is out. It should start appearing on mirrors soon. It is in idstuffquake3source and named "Q3AGameSource.exe"

There is a "How to make a mod" text file included which shows the very basics of building the source for debugging ( Win32, Visual C++ ) and building the vms for distributing mods. It also shows steps to get your mod to run with the engine.

PLEASE NOTE: The game source MUST BE INSTALLED in quake3 off of whatever drive you like. This is so the batch files and the lcc compiler can find all the right stuff for building vm's.

The tool source and video compressor will be out next week. This will include source q3data, q3map, q3asm, q3radiant, our version of lcc and the executable for the video compressor. "
