FTE
Author: Spike et al
Based on: QuakeWorld
First release: too long ago to remember or care about (Spike)
Newest release: https://fte.triptohell.info/downloads

FTE started out as a QuakeWorld-only engine, then over time, it has gained compatibility with NetQuake and mods, Hexen 2, Quake 2, and Quake 3.

When using FTE for Quake singleplayer, it is advised to set sv_nqplayerphysics 1, otherwise gameplay will differ.
