Hi guys, I recently came across this port of Quake and really enjoy it. I have the latest version with my installation of Quake 1.08 on my DOS rig. The software rendered game works great including ogg music. I have a couple of issues with the 3Dfx though. 1) I can't seem to control music volume from within the game, and 2) I can't change the resolution from 640x480x16.
I'm Using the Sage driver and trying to get 320x200. When I go to Video options it just has a message that video modes must be set with -width and -bpp. When I try -width 320 I get a 320x480 screen on the left half of my monitor. -height is not recognized. +set gl_mode works with software rendered game but not the 3Dfx. Same result with the -safevga option mentioned in the readme. I also tried the Mess driver and tried with a clean install of Quake 1.06.
I am also using Q2DOS for Quake2 and Hammer of Thyrion for Hexen2 and both of these can change resolutions and control ogg music volume.
The computer is a K6/233 with 128 MB ram, Millennium II 8MB, Maxi Gamer 3D Voodoo1, AWE64 running MS-DOS 7.1 CDU.
