This should be a one-page quick-start guide to getting, installing, and actually running the game, with links to other pages with further information.

Getting Quake

Where to buy Quake

Apart from rummaging your favourite market of used goods (flea market, friends, random online communities) you can get Quake at:

Amazon (don't forget to check your local branch)

Ebay (don't forget to check your local branch)

Steam (Warning: It does not include the excellent soundtrack, you would be missing a lot)

id Software

Be careful that you do not accidentally buy a shareware disc (the soundtrack is on it, so at least you got something for your money).

  • shareware version

Installing Quake

  • windows, dos
  • mac/linux -- get a port!

Patching Quake

Running Quake

  • basic batch file/shortcut with some standard command line stuff
  • system requirements/video card weirdness
