Out of the Blue

Well I'm glad I mentioned my frustrations with WinQUAKE, as it lead to recommendations of alternatives, including Fitzquake (thanks nin), ProQuake 4 and Quake Injector (thanks King Ghidorah), and Tenebrae (thanks |RaptoR|). The one I checked out was the one SirKnight recommended first, LordHavoc's DarkPlaces Quake Modification, which offered everything I could ask for, including beautiful 1920x1200 graphics, smooth character animations, upgrades for the sprite effects, and more. The result was incredible, and I had a great time playing through episode one, and plan on finishing the single-player game (which as I recall got to be a bit of a tedious ordeal by the end, but we'll see).
