My experience with the original 4 Quake engines on Win 7:

* Quake (WinQuake): colors are screwed up until the first sound plays; OK after that. Really this seems to be still a very solid way to play the game, if you don't want widescreen.

* QuakeWorld: colors are screwed up, haven't tried to suffer through that display to actually connect to a server.

* GLQuake: works OK, but the version provided by Steam (0.95) seems crashy on my computers. It also doesn't support FOV or some related widescreen options. You can Google around and find version 0.98 which works much better.

* GLQuakeWorld: seems fine.


The best solution IMO is to just use a modern Quake engine that some clever person has built using the released source code. There's a small learning curve to make sure that you have installed/configured stuff correctly, but once you're over that hump things are much better.


This guide covers how to configure Quake (stick to the "Quick Start" section at first):
