Out of the Blue

Well, it took a while to dig up the QUAKE CD yesterday, but I was able to install the game, patch it, and download and install WinQUAKE. I was saddened to realize that I could not recall any console commands off the top of my head, but was eventually able to turn on mouselook and other important functions. The game ran smoothly at 1280x1024, though character animations seemed a little jumpy. It's been a while since I last played the original, and one of the most surprising things was recalling that in spite of all the 3D polygon-based characters and geometry, just how many effects in the game still used sprites.

Blue, fyi if you click on the screens in the Baconing to fit your monitor size, it goes to a screen shot only with no Next or Back. I wasn't sure if this is intended. If so no big deal or if it was a minor issue with the viewing progy.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
