You can copy tracks ( 002 to 011 ) from Quake CD and convert them into .ogg format.
then create darkplaces\id1\sound\cdtracks\ folder and copy them there.
OPTIONAL: You can pack sound\ folder as Audio_tracks.pk3 for further convienience
Sadly, they are not included in digital distributed quake releases.
Tracks from original Quake CD contain not only music, but also ambient sounds.
They are essential for the game atmosphere, and you HAVE TO accuaire them.
I couldn't include them for obvious reasons.
7. Execute darkplaces.exe and enjoy.
pk3 files are zip archives with renamed extension

Go to organize > Folder and Search Options, then click the View tab. Uncheck the box titled "Hide extensions for known file types"
