Quake without Steam?
I travel a lot and would like to put Quake and Quake II on a USB drive to play it on other computers locations. Is there a way to take the steam version of Quake and make it standalone?

Yeah it is possible to run both WinQuake, and GLQuake with out using steam nor any source ports.

Download either WinQuake or GLQuake from the two links I'll link you.

http://quake.wikia.com/wiki/WinQuake : WinQuake Download on the bottom.

http://quake.wikia.com/wiki/GlQuake : GLQuake Download on the bottom.

You get two download version of GLQuake. Either one works fine.

Backup the original Steam Quake exe's and place the downloaded ones in the folder, and you are set. It should run with out Steam entirely.

Yes, all you need to do to play quake without steam, is copy the pak0.pak and pak1.pak file out of the id1 folder.

Create a new folder, e.g. Quake/id1 and place these two files in the id1 folder

Then download a modern quake engine. I recommend Darkplaces for single player and Qrack for multiplayer. Install either of these engines into your base Quake/ folder.

You are now all set to go. There might be some configuring that would need to be ironed out, but you can get a lot of those answers from www.quakeone.com
Hey thanks, guys.
