  • How do I launch quake team fortress?

    Sorry if I am stupid for this, but how do i launch quake team fortress? I installed fortress into the quake file which is the steam version. Tried putting -game fortress in the command but nothing works is there anyway how to launch the mod? Or did I do something wrong here...

    Try Simple Quake launcher instead of using a steam command line. It's easier in every way. OR if you don't want to do that ensure that the fortress folder is in the same folder where id1 is:

    C:\Quake\id1
    C:\Quake\fortress

    Also are you sure the folder is called fortress? Checked the spelling?

    You can download SQL here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/simplequakelauncher/

            It's not a very complicated program. Install it to your Quake directory and use the dropdown boxes to choose your engine, mode and map.

              Hi
              I'm not familiar with the Teamfortess mod but generally you could do the following if you were using a Quake engine like Proquake, Qrack, EngineX, and presumably MarkV (Baker?):
              1. create a directory under quake, lets call it tf.
              2. Copy your mod files in to your tf directory as directed.
              3. Make a copy of your batch script, presuming you have one, that you would normally use to run quake. lets call it tf.bat
              4. Edit tf.bat and remove any references that may be in the quake command line to "-game SomeModName",
              5. add -game tf to the quake command line and save the tf.bat script
              6. run your tf.bat script


              If all has gone well your tf.bat script should fire up quake and also run the mod. Please bare in mind that some mods require you to add a +map SomeMapName to the command line to ensure you start at the desired map.

              Hope this helps

                You shouldn't be using WinQuake. You should download a sourceport based on QuakeWorld like FTEQW.

                You can then load the game upon startup by opening the console and typing:
                gamedir fortress
                (or whatever the name of your TF folder is)
                Team Fortress will then launch and you can host/connect to servers.
                Quake is for nerds.
