Insomnia Proquake 4.71 Revision 4
With the support of WorldGenesis[/r/psp & #PSP], Grzybiarz, Baker, Crow_bar and MDave, I am happy to release this new update to the ProQuake 4.71 engine for the Sony Playstation Portable. This updated engine release & mod compilation features numerous fully fledged custom campaigns for Quake and has been optimized for mod usage, with focus on ease of use. It has taken many hours of trial and error to code and compile this edition of the source. Primarily due to the fact that when I began work on this project, I had next to zero experience with developing PSP homebrew and absolutely no experience with C/C++, let alone compiling code for the psptoolchain. Big thanks to WorldGenesis for his patience with me, MDave for creating Kurok and Baker for this amazing ProQuake netcode implementation. Also big thanks to Jurak Styk for his original menu code from an earlier iteration of Quake on PSP!!! I have decided on naming the release "Insomnia", as Insomnia is one of my favorite custom campaigns by czg. Also naming it thus as I had a late night breakthrough and stayed up until dawn working on the project.

This version of the engine is optimized for PSP Slim's 64mb of ram. There is now a PSP Fat version though it may not be compabile with all included mods.
Added functionality with "-prompt" menu.
When the "-prompt" command line argument is added to the quake.cmdline file (done be default), the user is prompted to select a mod folder (first option "blank" for default Quake Campaign) upon initial boot of the Insomnia game.
Added texture filtering options for ProQuake Engine via prompt menu
Added "Hipnotic" support
Fixed dynamic lighting and mp3 issues
Other options include ability to set cpu speed and heapsize for memory allocation.
I recommend using CPU Speed: 333 and Heapsize: 33 for the PSP Slim, and for the PS Vita/PSP Phat to use CPU Speed: 333 and Heapsize: 14
Included in the archive are the respective game folder, eboot, and source code.
