Quake II for red-blue 3D glasses

This will add the red and blue screen to your Quake2 game giving it a great 3D look. Make sure you read the text in the additional information section for important requirements and installation.

You're going to need:

Linux (or some other OS if you know how to compile Quake II itself and the X11 software renderer) - I'd love to make a Windows version but I know nothing about programming graphics under Windows

Quake II source from id Software's FTP or one of the mirrors (q2source-3.21.zip)

my modifications (red-blue-quake2-0.1.tar.gz)

red-blue "3D" glasses (like these)

original Quake II game content (the *.pak files) - the engine is under the GPL, the game content is not!

Then perform the following commands:

unzip q2source-3.21.zip

tar -xzf red-blue-quake2-0.1.tar.gz

cd quake2-3.21/linux/

make

cd debugi386-glibc/

mkdir baseq2

cd baseq2/

ln -s ../gamei386.so

ln -s /path/to/quake2/baseq2/pak*.pak ./

cd ..

echo "." > /etc/quake2.conf

./quake2 +set vid_ref softx +set vid_gamma 0.5 +set cl_stereo_separation 1.5

And that's it! (At least in theory, drop me a line if it doesn't work for you.) Remember to become root before writing to /etc/quake2.conf (you can play as a normal user). Experiment with the cl_stereo_separation value (you can adjust it from the console, no need to restart).
