The QuakeForge Project


QuakeForge is a 3D first-person shooter game engine based on id Software's legendary Quake and QuakeWorld game engines. Our purpose is to improve the state of the game by improving the engine, making a good base for game and engine modifications, and making it accessible to the largest number of players we can. We like it, and we think you will too.

QuakeForge 0.7.2 has been released.

0.7.1 turned out to be a bit of a train wreck. I apologize for the inconvenience. 0.7.2 is primarily a bug-fix release, but there are two rather significant new features:


  • 64-bit windows target now supported (though untested).
  • QF no longer mangles other engines' config files on windows
  • Critical bug with incorrect key_dest fixed. (fixed in 0.7.1a)
  • Critical bug incorrect handling of progs code fixed (windows builds)
  • Alignment bug loading wav files fixed (affects only mips)
  • Id style (r_particles_style 0) particle explosions fixed (windows)

For more details, see NEWS.

  • Dynamic IMTs allowing more customization of the key binding system.
  • Fixes for allowing QF to work with the excellent In The Shadows mod by Sock.
  • BSP2 support.
  • Various bug fixes and build system improvements.
  • Can be cross-compiled for ps3-elf and mips-linux.

  • Vertex normals are now exported
  • Multiple vertices sharing the one UV coordinate now work as expected
  • Quads and n-gons automatically get converted to triangles.
  • The model's location, rotation and scale are now non-destructively applied to the mesh (optional, default) before exporting.
