Welcome!

neogeographica.com is a home for possibly-interesting-or-useful things I've made or collected that are related to Quake, Quake 3, and Quake Live. If those games don't float your boat then you won't find much of interest. Otherwise please use the tabs above to reach the main sections of the site!


"Wanted" posters

Some old Quake-related content seems to have managed to completely drop off of the internet. If you happen to be able to get your hands on any of the following things, let me know (contact info at bottom of page):

The Ruins of Oehm (oehm.pk3) : An early custom Q3 map that was popular on some ProMode servers. It vanished when all those Quake-era game-files websites died off.
ClanRing T3 Demos : Any demo from a game marked as "no demo" in this readme file would be a good find.
Ramshackle : A formative review site for Quake DM maps. I'm looking for a complete site archive — existing archives are missing lots of pages and/or pictures.

Last few site changes

Sep 21 2020 : Still poking at the Linux Desktop Integration. Added an option to preview readme files and preview/edit the launch args the first time a given gamedir is launched. All done adding new features for now I guess?
Jul 25 2020 : Added a Chrome extension to the Linux Desktop Integration files (and an accompanying minor update to the quakelaunch script). Check out the demo GIF there for "Optional Chrome browser integration" to see it in action. Update Aug 04: still poking at features/tweaks in the underlying scripts! Watch the GitHub repo for updates.
Jul 11 2020 : Gathered up and documented the files and scripts for the Linux Desktop Integration I'm using to do various Quake-playing things quickly. If you give this a try, let me know how it turns out!
Mar 13 2020 : Update for the Quake Singleplayer Starter Pack to bring on board more highly-rated classic stuff (up thru end of 2018 releases now).
Mar 12 2020 : Mention the inclusion of a jlctf3 variant in the Uber Arena mod.
Jul 23 2019 : Small update to the Quake Singleplayer Starter Pack to fix some broken links for installable soundtracks.
Jul 21 2019 : Dusting off the gameserver scripts for a couple of things: 1) making them work on modern Debian releases, and 2) improving the Webmin plugin to show server status and port number.
Jul 17 2018 : Update for the Quake Singleplayer Starter Pack so that it runs in windowed mode when installing stuff.
Jul 01 2018 : I had the urge to put together a little Surveyor mod for Quake 3, which lets you measure map spaces in-game.
