In 2011 I started browsing the latest graphical/sound quake mods, putting together a pretty build using LordHavoc's darkplaces, rygel's ultra textures packs, the reforged packs and a variety of mods, to play quake original. Anyone can do the same, however the hassle comes when you have to browse the quakeone forums, stumbling to find the posts which detail what cvars and what configs/files you have to overwrite etc in order to get each mod to work. I literally spent as much time getting the mods working as playing the game. So I put together a nice-looking build of quake original and it's expansions called epsilon for everybody to get into, without getting into the hassle of config files and searching to find every available mod then getting them to work! The main quake build also includes the original shareware first quarter of the quake game - it is easily upgraded to the full game by dropping in the pak0.pak and pak1.pak files from the full game's id1 directory (more details below).

Description

I tried to make this mission pack a completely different experience to Quake Vanilla and Mission Pack 1, with different models and textures for as many elements as is humanly possible. I've even changed the sound setup to a slightly different set (seven's). Personally I think Dissolution's a great mission pack, much more inventive than the first. Don't know why people didn't like it initially- Having said that, there're still some textures that haven't been redone - mainly some wall/ground textures. Thanks especially to Seven for the interesting ghost-sword death animations! This addon pack for Mission pack 2 requires both a Quake Epsilon build, a Quake Epsilon MP1 addon pack and a full version of Quake Mission pack 2 (Dissolution of Eternity) - there are no shareware versions of either of the quake mission packs. Full installation instructions and notes on the website or in the expanded description below.

This addon pack for Mission pack 2 requires both a Quake Epsilon build, a Quake Epsilon MP1 addon pack and a full version of Quake Mission pack 2 (Dissolution of Eternity) - there are no shareware versions of either of the quake mission packs.


Installation and running:
========---------========

You'll need the Quake epsilon build installed on your computer.

1. Unzip this expansion's zip file to your quake folder (not into the ID1 sub-folder).

2. Copy pak0.pak file from the "rogue" folder of your commercial Quake Dissolution of Eternity (mission pack 2) installation to your quake epsilon "rogue" folder.

3. Change your graphics mode (even if you've already done this before, you need to redo this every time you install a mission pack/third party map-pack to set it up properly):
Windows:         run (double-click) epsilon - change graphics quality.bat
Mac/linux:     run (double-click) epsilon - change graphics quality - linux and mac

4. Run the game:
Windows:         run (double-click) quake - mission pack 2.bat
Mac:                 run (double-click) quake - mission pack 2 - mac
Linux:             run (double-click) quake - mission pack 2 - linux x64 glx


Omitted Content:
=====----------

For legal reasons I obviously can't include the MP2 pak0.pak or soundtrack in this pack. Usually it's about $2.50-$5 on steam, depending on sales. If you're using steam the pak0.pak file will be in your steam/steamapps/common/quake/rogue folder. The soundtrack is not included with the steam download but can be found around the net. Instead I've included a correctly-looped and edited version of Sonic Mayhem's "Methods of Destruction" (freely available from Psychotic Leisure music blog).

Sonic Mayhem's alt-quake soundtrack was released to the public early 2012 - all I've done is looped and corrected certain aspects of it. One track has been removed in order to fit the 9-track requirement for mission pack 2 soundtracking.

I really love the monster and weapon skins used in the mission packs, is it possible to use these in the main Quake game? I've dropped the appropriate files into ID1 but the game reverts to the usual skins.

Awesome job with these Epsilon mods, enjoying Quake even more now than I did back at release time :)

If you rename the .pk3 containing the skins you want so it's name is alphabetically higher than the .pk3 in the id1 folder (eg. B > A, Z > B) and put it in the id1 folder, it *should* overwrite the id1 content.

You can also try unzipping the .pk3 into the id1 directory :)
