Do not fill this in! ==Overview== This is a quick-start guide to getting, installing, and actually running the game. ===Components=== Quake consists of three parts: * A platform-specific Quake [[Engines|engine]], which is the program you run to actually play Quake. * The platform-independent game data archives ''[[pak0.pak]]'' (required) and ''[[pak1.pak]]'' (usually optional). * The soundtrack, which normally exists as audio tracks on the original Quake CD-ROM, which you can leave in your drive while you play. The soundtrack and CD-ROM are optional. Therefore, a minimal installation of Quake consists of just ''pak0.pak'' and a single Quake engine. There are many engines to choose from, each with different features and platform (hardware + operating system) requirements. The [[Engines|engines]] article discusses the options in more detail.
