I would recommend the latest darkplaces build for win or linux (only 1 file to download, it contains all versions and the source):
You could just unzip that in your quake folder - it will be a bit messy as it contains linux, win and mac files.
Do you use win or linux?
Either way this would be the easiest method:
1. Launch darkplaces
Sounds so easy. I tried it on the latest darkplaces I moded for the new game I'm making. It didnt work.
This is the command line method:
Take the needed steps to set the directory (depends entirely on file structure & drive config) to quake:
linux (change to your quake dir):
now enter the command to run darkplaces (make sure the exe is in the quake folder, or in your exec path):
darkplaces -game painkeep
If you want to play with bots:
darkplaces -listen 16 -game painkeep
If you want to use the in game admin menus (for fine tuning or controlling bots - really unnecessary though):
alias float1 "saved2 -1"
to something like:
alias float1 "saved2 1337"
After sending the admin impulse (bound to "\" key by default) you enter 1337 as the password. You can put any numeric sequence as a password.
Just for you I setup the single player mode so that painkeep items will automatically spawn (randomly here and there - the console will contain messages about item location) in that mode. All you have to do is start a single player game and you should see these messages:
*** Dynamic items will spawn on this map - keep an eye out
Entering version at the console should show something like (I just tested the single player on my install of this version):
I tried a few things (like making sure the re-entry to the start map with the sigils works) and believe it should play all the way through but I have NOT actually done that. If you play single player and discover something wonky - just let me know. I'll send a patch right away.
If it all works great and you want to try the other hubs (in deathmatch of course) from the convenience pack:
*** Remember to play against (or with) bots you MUST start a multiplayer server. Just entering deathmatch 1 in the console wont make it happen.
I'll put a pk_coop alias in the next version to make that earlier. I just threw one in the autoexec.cfg file.
This is your guide to play painkeep with darkplaces.
