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

Arcane Dimensions, by Sock (Simon O' Callaghan) + many others, is unlike any other Quake expansion out there. Each map, or 'dimension', teleports the player to a very different area, with a very different vibe and overall 'feel'. Some dimensions are scifi, some ethereal, some dark and gothic. All are good. Tons of new enemies abound, ranging from variations on old favourites to new originals. This compilation brings together both Arcane Dimensions and the HD updates made by the quake community, predominantly on Quakeone, and the music I've been working on for the ~3 hour soundtrack for the past 2 years, along with many of my own retextures. This build is Not an addon for the main Quake Epsilon build at this stage, it is a standalone install - do NOT unzip into your main quake epsilon build folder, if you have one. Arcane Dimensions requires the commercial version of quake's pak0.pak and pak1.pak files from the full game's id1 folder. Click 'read more' for installation details etc

Will I be able to play regular quake with this? I didn't really like the ssg model for epsilon original

ps. If you just want to change the super-shotgun model, copy the ad/plagues_weapons_pack_kingennioedit_xolvedds.pk3 file from this build into the id1 folder of your regular epsilon install. It will change all the other weapons too though...

To play regular quake with this Mod, just run map ad_s1m1(Slipgate conundrum). After finishin it, You will continue playing thru all first episode, then returning to AD start map.
To playing all Quake, just type in console:
map e1m1

I'm just not personally guaranteeing it'll work proerply, graphically-speaking, with quake vanilla - I did try that but saw a few artifacts - so it's at your own peril.

Can't replicate sorry. Might want to list your computer build, operating system and whether you've followed the installation instructions.

On every computer I've tested it's worked fine, on both windows and ubuntu.

Like I said, can't replicate, at all. Might want to list your computer build, operating system and whether you've followed the installation instructions.

Adoring the mod and all the love that went into it. It's probably a silly question, since it didn't come with the build, but is Forgotten Sepulcher supported (should I install it separately)?

Thank you; That level doesn't work with the darkplaces engine (as explained in the read more section above). You can run it on the Quakespasm or quakespasm-spiked engines and that's it. I may put out another expansion at another point, using that.

Unfortunately, clicking on .bat has no effect. I installed as described in the text. I put the pak0 and pak1 files in the Id1 folder. Nothing happens. Win 10 64bits. 9700K 1080TI, 16 DDR 4 3000 RAM.

Double-clicking, you mean?
Could be an issue with your win10 setup if that's the case. I've got a win10 setup here and it works fine. Try the following:

In the folder where the .bat files is located, hold down the "shift" key and right click in the white space.
Select "Open Command Window Here".
You will now see a new command prompt. Type in "arcane dimensions.bat", with quotation marks, and press enter.
If it doesn't run, it should give you some message. Send me a direct message with the message.

Yeah, I know. Luckily these are the anomalies, rather than the rule.
