Quake 1 Pre-release (Beta)

(sorry for my poor english) hi! I'm a Quake 1 fan and I was wondering if an any place had a copy of the Quake 1 Pre-release (Beta). I have searched these files for a long time but I have not had results. Is it possible to get yet? or just a far dream? :7

Re: Quake 1 Pre-release (Beta)

No, I just did a Google search. Further reading some of the links, it would appear that the beta pre-release isn't playable on modern systems without a little extra work. Someone did this extra work and posted it here: http://quakeone.com/forums/quake-talk/q … -pack.html but either the link is dead or I can't access it on my phone. I'll retry on a real computer later and if it really is a dead link, I'll ask around for a re-upload.
