From the outset of this project the idea was to ensure that the engine is as much as possible a purist build of the game. Most of the changes made to the engine were under-the-hood with a very small amount of actual visual changes. Its the perfect engine for those that are not inclined to care about having any extras like custom 32-bit texture support and other eye candy that transforms the game into something other than what was intended by the original.
Its most probably also a pretty good candidate to be used when buying Quake 2 through digital online services like Steam since the effort required to make the jump from the original to UQE Quake 2 is extremely minimal from an upgrade perspective only requiring the original fully patched PAK files and optionally also the CIN files for cinematic playback.
UQE Quake 2 is downloadable from the following url:http://www.jacqueskrige.com
If the game fails to start it may be that the machine is missing the redistributable package.Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012[www.microsoft.com]
At this time the binaries are not compatible with any Windows release older than Windows Vista.
