This is a graphical mod developed by a russian modder called Berserker. It's an active project since 2008. The mods purpose is to enchange Quake2's graphics.
This is definitely THE mod for Q2!
Can't live without it.
when you play as, for example, a cyborg, you hear cyborg sounds! It's THAT detailed!
It has flashlight that can eat cells! ( Personally, when I start a new game, I come close to Bitterman's pod and I give myself 50 cells. It must be enough till Jail levels. After all, Bitterman could've rip out battery from his pod, right? ;-)
And, from time to time, I just start a new game to marvel at new gibs logic (AMAZING!)
And it works under linux(wine) flawlessly!
Also, mod creator is a very helpful person. When I complained about game getting too easy for me after years of slaying Stroggs, he just've send me modified DLL that allows to adjust enemies damage scale!
Thanks for that!
I bought Quake 2 in 1998, didn't really get far in it at the time (computer didn't run it that well), tried again in 2003... no idea where I ended up, but I didn't feel like continuing at any rate.
Only in 2012 did I finally play through Quake 2 thanks to this mod. It updates the graphics spectacularly (even though most models have not been updated) and makes the game a pleasure to play (and look at, for that matter!).
Shame that with the expansion packs, the elevators appear to be missing and there are some scripting bugs as well. Hopefully one day these bugs will be ironed out as well.
Very good mod, graphics evolved like god, I liked the new effects placed in the game. but I missed an option of physical attack that could be placed. (like a punch, kick or a punch using his gun) and put the flash on weapons and some more details, otherwise I would note instead of 10 ^ ^
