Well, I'm not a Pro in it, but as I know, Raytracing is, like the Name say, a Function, who calculate the Path of a Lightbeam from the Source to a Surface and then to the Viewer (Ray and Tracing).
There the Function look what shape the Surface has and then direct the Light to the Viewer in a Way, like it would in the real World.
For Example, a Hair is rounded, so it will scatter the light in the same Way, like Water hit a Pipe, it spray in all Directions in a maybe 120 Degree Radius.
This give Hair in Games a Shine like real Hair do, for every Lightsource.
On Surfaces like Metal (like the Side of a Car), it can mirror the Image of a Effect (like a Fire) on it and allow the Immage to shine Light on a nearby Surface (like you hold a Torchlight to a Mirror).
I'm sure I have say some or all wrong, but this is like I understand it.

There's a whole slew of people here who have no ♥♥♥♥ing idea what raytracing is and why it's so computationally expensive. NO. You're not going to be able to run this on a potato.

Notavaiable in my Country.
Steam realy need to change this, like adding a Age Check for the account so this games will be avaiable again.

It is because you are from Germany.

You can still download it via this Link: steam://run/1089130

The nvidia link to the game is a 404 error, even the steam download tell me there are no infos to show.

I'm probably about halfway through the game or better. The part where you blow up the big gun and run to the shuttle. When I get into the shuttle and the game tries to load the next level it crashes to the desktop with this error message: recursive error after: Z_FreeTags: bad tail

I've googled but can't find this error message. Anyone know a workaround? I've never played a Quake game and was enjoying it but it's come to a halt now lol.
