It rocks, it really does. Very enjoyable gameplay in UAE. I've been playing it for months and through at least 2 revisions of AmiQuake itself.

I take it Quake 2 wasn't popular? If it wasn't, I'd forgotten, and the gameplay seems to be a lot of fun so far, or at least, entertaining.

The most recent are mostly from 2019.

I suppose it's possible the reason for that is that it runs with fewer issues on more configurations than AmiQuake (I). If so, disregard.
