Quake Mobile Screenshots

Filed under
Gaming

Hands up if you remember the original Quake? Yes, I thought that would be most of you. As the first truly three-dimensional shooter, it was absolutely revolutionary back when it was released in 1996, eschewing sprites for polygons and height-maps for brushes.

GLQuake was the first major showcase for 3D graphics cards, with the 3dfx Voodoo being the choice of the time - I remember my 4MB version was the swishest thing on the block.

How times change! We've already had Quake on PocketPC for a while now, as the CPU speeds on those have shot through the roof. However, the next evolution of Quake is the move to the mobile phone.

Forget Snake, or mini-golf - Quake is where it's at for the next generation of mobile handsets. With new chips from Nvidia and ATI being installed into handsets from later on this year, 3D gaming will truly be possible. Just don't expect to use keyboard and mouse.

We brought you details on the game on Wednesday, so check out that article formore details.

The original Quake featured the all-star lineup of Cthulu-inspired monsters, with Shamblers, Fiends, Grunts, Hell Knights, and those annoying ghost things that really annoyed the hell out of me the first time round. Expect all these to make a return!

So, feast your eyes on these mobile shots and re-live the heady days of Quake on 10BaseT LAN in all its nostalgic glory.

Kernel 3.18 development – the kernel column

Linus Torvalds announced Linux 3.17, the Shuffling Zombie Juror, saying, “The past week was fairly calm, and so I have no qualms about releasing 3.17 on the normal schedule”. The latest kernel includes a number of nice headline features, such as the new getrandom() system call and sealed files APIs that we covered in previous issues of LU&D. Linux 3.17 also includes support for less highlighted new features, such as new signature checking of kexec()’d kernel images and sparse files on Samba file systems (which is significant for those mounting Windows and Mac shares).

Weston's IVI Shell Sees New Version

There hasn't been much in the way of exciting Wayland/Weston developments to report on this month, but its development is continuing in its usual manner. Out today is another version of the Weston IVI Shell as it still works to being accepted upstream. The weston-ivi-shell is a reference shell for Wayland's Weston compositor running on In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems. The Weston-IVI work dates back many months and today's revision to the shell marks its eighth public version as it still seeks to be accepted into mainline Weston. Read more

Python 3 Support Added To The GNOME Shell

The GNOME Shell 3.15.2 release fixes some visual glitching, improves the layout of the extension installation dialog, supports the CSS margin property, and offers other bug fixes and minor enhancements. Most notable to GNOME Shell 3.15.2 though is there's finally Python 3 support. Many GNOME components have long ported their Python 2 code to Python 3 while GNOME Shell's Python support has just received the Py3 treatment. Details on GNOME's overall Python 3 porting work can be found via this Wiki page. Read more
