All credit goes to MenaceInc for the patch and guide.

This patch utilizes the DarkPlaces engine developed by LordHavoc, the plasmagun fix by OoPpEe, the music patch originally hosted on widescreengamingforum.com and the NSIS install system developed by Nullsoft.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PATCH IS FOR STEAM VERSIONS ONLY!
This patch can be used with the retail versions of Quake but the default directory is that of the Steam version. If you do install over a retail version, please ensure that there is no separate opengl32.dll in the install folder.

These patches will install music for Quake, Quake Mission Pack 1 and Quake Mission Pack 2.
This will come to a total of ~80MB of space for all of the patches.
I've also included a custom config.cfg for more modern default fps controls.
Please note as well that selecting Delete Local Content on Steam will not delete the music or dll files included.
These will have to be manually deleted.

Also, trying to Verify integrity of game cache will result in the game files being overwritten with the originals.
If you try installing one of the Mission Add-ons, you will need to reinstall this patch as Steam rewrites over the modified files.

Ok, so I start up Win quake Manually with no steam overlay and no Plays.Tv recording my progress, but my game crashes about 15 seconds in game. Not on startup, but during play. Anybody know how I can fix this?

Specs:
Radeon r7 250 Graphics Card
AMD 6300 Hexa Core Processor
8 Gigabytes of Ram
and yes, it is installed into steamapps/common/quake

It's still crash upon start, though I disable steam overlay. What was is missed?

For all who experience crash upon start, right click on the game in steam client and disable steam overlay in the properties.

Same, I'm getting crashed out after one second of the game loading; is there something we're missing?

It crashes the game entirely, so for some reason, it doesn't work for me. Sad, because I really wanted to have music in the game...

Is this compatible with the new episode that MachineGames came out with? Because I installed it, and tried running the new episode, but it freezes shortly into the demo.

I have installed the ultimate quake patch but I dont seem to be getting the effects of the DarkPlaces mod. Everything else is fine however, the music patches and everything. Is there a setting I am not seeing?
