Q2CTFRev: A port of the original id Tech 2 engine (Quake II) with ThreeWave's Capture-The-Flag module to the Nintendo Wii, compiled using devkitPPC / libogc.

Q2CTFRev, as a standalone application, has been deprecated. It is now part of Quake Rev PAK.

The engine is feature-complete, with sound, network play, and CD Music track playback. It is mainly intended for network play; while it's possible to play the single-player game with this engine, it becomes somewhat slow doing so.

New features since Release 2 of Quake Rev PAK:

  • CD Music track playback is now available!
  • Key aliases. With the new "keyalias" command, you can map any key in your controller to any other one, letting you customize your controls any way you like.
  • If a game crashes, and the engine is able to tell, it will create a "QRevPAK.err" file containing the date/time and the cause of the crash.
  • The [+] and [-] buttons now move through your inventory, instead of going with fixed keys. Remember to press [1] ( = Enter key, if unaliased) to activate the selected item.
  • The "c" / On-screen Keyboard combo button now behaves differently. The "c" key command (Crouch) is sent immediately; the On-Screen keyboard is shown upon key release. However, if the key is held for more than 0.5 seconds, the On-Screen keyboard won't appear at all.

The project is being hosted at http://code.google.com/p/qrevpak .

Any comments about the engine are welcome to heribertod@gmail.com.


In order to play Quake II - Threewave Capture The Flag with this engine, please follow these instructions:

  1. Download the QRevPAK.R*.zip to your computer
  2. Copy the contents of the archive to a folder called /apps/QRevPAK/ in your storage media (SD card or USB stick)
  3. Copy the /baseq2 folder (shareware or full, bought, game), from your computer and, of course, the /ctf folder (if present), also at the /apps/QRevPAK/ folder. (NOTE: Previous versions of Q2CTFRev required these files at the root of the media card. This is no longer the case.)
  4. OPTIONAL: Create a /cdtracks folder inside /baseq2, and copy the Ogg Vorbis-encoded tracks from your original Quake II CD, sorted by name. NOTE: There is no need for a filler Track 1, so don't include one.
  5. Start "Quake Rev PAK" on the Homebrew Channel (or any suitable app launcher).
