Smokin' Guns is intended to be a recreation of the "Old West's" great atmosphere. It is being developed on IoQ3's implementation of Id Softwares IdTECH3 engine. This Total Conversion of Q3 includes weapons created with historically correct information about damage, rate of fire, reload time, etc. It also includes gametypes and maps inspired mostly from western styled movies. And to increase the feeling of a "Gunslingers Atmosphere" music tracks and sounds have been adapted to the simulated times. The Smokin' Guns game started its life under the name of Western Quake³. It was originally developed by a team known as Iron Claw Interactive. They released WQ³ beta 2.0 in 2003, after which development all but ceased. In May 2005, development of Western Quake³ was taken over of by a bunch of cowboys calling themselves The Smokin' Guns with the blessings of the former team. Improvements to the game continue to this day! Please post all support issues in the forums for the game. Read More...

You should also realize Smokin'Guns community owns now a great new site based on Drupal and it is launched with a great and smart theme thanks to Biondo, our good friend and talented web designer !
Thank you for all your investment Biondo !

So, new release, new site !! What else ! He he... some other nice news will come soon, but now it's time to thank Joe Kari for his efforts and his desire to push toward Smokin'Guns 1.1 release. You'll find nice new features exposed in his great Alamo II map !! I would like also to thank Torhu for the Windows exe installer and also Barto for his try in a generic Debian package (see our official site) !! And of course, thank you Red and Pardner for your priceless involvement !!!

I would also thank you all for your long time support ! And now my heart is just beating toward our old good friends who were around for years and who are just missing us today...

I get an error when I want to launch this game ( ubuntu 12.04 ) installed via desura :

the game starts and show an error in the console:
UI / line1: ui/menddef.h not found.

I think something is wrong with the (linux)desura package.

It sounds like you have a bad pk3 file. The rectangles you get are the games way of displaying textures/shaders that are not found. How did you install the game? You might want to start from a fresh install.
1) Remove/delete your old Smokin' Guns install. If you want to save you config file thats fine.
2) Download the OS Independent package:
3) If the executable does not work, the source code can be found on SourceForge : . Build a new executable and see if that works.

Try using MonsterBrowser. The in game browser doesn't always work. MonsterBrowser is developed by torhu, one of the Smokin' Guns developers.
