Cross Platform Quake

Hello
I found this site while hunting down Quake Wii homebrew files. (love the file archives)

I'm planning a retro Quake LAN day in my house.

Awhile ago I was playing Quake for DS on my local network, I had PC server/client running quake, two Nintendo DS's running quake and two Xbox originals all running quake and connecting to the PC server.

That was over 10 years ago, now im starting it up again with more variations.

Currently I have XBOX, android (VR), Wii, linux (server), Nintendo DS & MAC OSX running but not all connecting.

The wii client, which I have tried several versions, found in these archives and from other locations will run, gets a IP address but won't connect to the local server. I've checked the usuals, ping, port etc. But im a bit lost to where to look for more debugging.

When trying to connect from my WII or OSX client, it says trying 3 times then fails.

I have got the android (VR) client and a windows client connecting successfully to the LINUX server.

Is there a tool or something i can use to see whats causing the errors/fails?

Re: Cross Platform Quake

Stab in the dark but did you try adding the port to the connect command? like connect 192.168.0.5:26000

you can type status in the console on the server to see what port is enabled.

And... can I come over to play?  :)

Re: Cross Platform Quake

QW or NetQuake?

Run some network packet analyzer on your server to see if the clients actually reach it. If they do, check where they try to connect to.
