  • Find qconsole.log in baseq2 folder
  • Place content of the file to www.pastebin.com

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

Is there a list of files that Quake2XP is dependent upon? Or a wiki somewhere? I would like to run it separately (preferably in a portable mode) if that is a possibility.

Great work btw! The screenshots look absolutely amazing!

Everything is written in the description. Learn to read and understand what is written. I'm tired of the same questions. A little more and I will become 100% misanthrope

It looks amazing! Nice work! My biggest problem is the mission packs. I did run the quake 2 xp exe as you said in the description but the game won't launch the mission pack. It just goes with the normal Quake 2. If i switch from the main menu to Ground Zero for exemple, it will not load it. If i try to use console commands to enter a mission it works but there are enemies from the expansions missing like Gekks, Turrets, Beta Brain etc. Also the rogue file from the download is missing its xp dll. It only has the standard gamex86.dll but not the gamex86xp.dll like matrix and original. Please help, i have the GoG version installed and i really love your mod, far better than that rtx nvidia crap out there. What to do to fully run Quake 2 mission packs with the mod?

Hey KirkBarnes How do I get rid of that bright white square on top right corner during gameplay and how do I get it to run in full screen on my 4k monitor in 4k? It will only go full screen in 1080p. I have screenshots if you need them.
