  • Raw mouse input (windows only)
  • xBox360 controller support
  • OpenAL 3d audio engine with EFX (high-quality environmental audio sound effects both win and linux)

Be sure to read - The original game has long been tested and works without problems. Departures game glitches shaders - it is a problem with your computer, not a port. If you have a prehistoric garbage - it's your problem. I have no desire to maintain the old system.

Bug reports without the game log will be ignored

I just tried version 1.26.6 of this mod as I wait for the next release. Wow! This is such an amazing, awsum, beautiful looking experience of the classic Quake 2. I couldn't be bothered to find my original CD of the game so bought it from Gog.com (first purchase and very impressed with that too), installed the game and extracted the contents of this mod to the game directory. Was up and running within minutes and this mod just blew my mind. It was like how I thought Quake 2 looked like when i played it almost 20 years ago! This is not a mod, make no mistake, this is actually a stunning, professional reboot! Well done and thank you to the creator of this excellent work.
