 +reQuiem is a Quake engine by jdhack for Linux and Windows with demo playback controls (pause, rewind, fast-forward, quick-seek), extensive tab-completion in the console, vastly improved options menus, a map browser, a demo browser, fast and convenient video capture support, many bug fixes, compatibility options like "ignore the case of filenames", expanded limits so you can play all the latest maps without problems (actually it automatically detects if it has to use an extended protocol), dzip and zip/pk3 support. It can record nicely-named demos at any time and compress them if you like, it names screenshots after the map they are taken on. It supports the soundtrack in Ogg Vorbis or MP3, playing the Quake Pre-Release and Test versions, non-US keyboard layouts. I have been using this engine as tester pretty much exclusively for the last 4 years and I never want to go back to the alternatives.

 +===== 23rd December - Dr. Shadowborg =====
 +{{ :quake_advent_calendar_2013:drs_qsr04.jpg?direct&400|}}
 +Hellsmash is an in development partial conversion for Quake featuring new / enhanced monsters, new weapons, new items, and thus far, one start map and one SP/DM map. Frikbots also come installed so you can play against them in DM. Previously available as Beta 3, the mod disappeared in original mod form, but survived to some extent via MrGreezy's PSP Port.
 +
 +This latest version features a revised hse1m1, a female player model by lelleilol, tweaks and improvements over the original Beta 3. If you missed the original version, now is the perfect time to try this latest release.

 For the past couple of months I have been creating a new Quake map called “[[/reviews/zendar1d.html|The Horde of Zendar]]” which is based on a large city layout with high roof tops to run across and look down upon the cobbled streets below. The map is about trying to capture the vertical essence of Quake, the desire to climb and explore the world while dealing with the minions of Chthon! For the past couple of months I have been creating a new Quake map called “[[/reviews/zendar1d.html|The Horde of Zendar]]” which is based on a large city layout with high roof tops to run across and look down upon the cobbled streets below.
