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.

So how do I use this? I downloaded it, installed it, and quake still doesn't change.

Seems there's an issue with the patch when toggling "Always Run" to off - With that option turned off, you will walk forward and back at normal speed, but left and right is still at double speed. Makes a lot of the jumps in the game difficult.

There's a problem with this patch: namely the game crashes if you enable the Steam overlay.

How can I uninstall the Ultimate Quake Patch and keep the music and the free look mouse? What files do I have to get rid of?

I love that it adds the music but I can't get past the horrible animation. It's too smooth and they move like an on rail attraction. The original was actually more realistic and it looked like they were moving. Why can't people put back the old fix that let you play Quake as it originally was.
