Welcome to the all new QuakeOne.com!!

Welcome to the all new QuakeOne.com! The web site has been moved to a brand new web host, and the site software (vBulletin) has been upgraded to the most recent version. All previous data, including users and posts, has been converted over to the new version of the site.

We are still in the process of updating the site look and feel. We hope to have this updated shortly. In the meantime we have simply launched the site with the default software templates so as to not keep the site down any longer.

Until we get the site back up and running as it was before, please use http://servers.quakeone.com to find game server stats.

If you find any issues with anything on QuakeOne.com, please let us know in the Site Feedback Forum.

Thanks for your patience!

    Pakscape.0.11

    (Usually some random barnacle head that has never created anything of value will jump in and say Pak Explorer. Pak Explorer cannot handle file names exceeding 8 characters and a great many maps, skyboxes, textures have names longer than 8 characters. PakScape has none of these crippling limitations.)

    So while you guys all have to fight your anti-matter counterparts, me and my evil twin will be drinking a beer laughing at you guys ...

      If I recall correctly, PakScape can be used to open, edit, and compile both Quake1 and Quake2 pak files as well as Quake3 pk3 files.

          Why in hell would someone make an app that can only open files with up to 8 character names? Why would the name length have any restrictions? I'm gonna make an engine that will only open maps that specifically use this vertex

            I think because original Quake was DOS Quake and DOS only supported filenames as 8.3 or something like that. But Quake and Quake pak files never had this limitation. And Pak Explorer is a Windows app and Windows never had that limitation. Pak Explorer is a great name. And at first glance, it seems like a nice tool.

            So who knows. If you never use it to do anything, it works great! If you go to actually do something real, you get the rudest of all surprises and then have to go get a REAL TOOL, which would have been nice the first time. The first pak editor I used was Pak Explorer so I was constantly aggravated, it wasted a lot of my time -- I was newb and didn't know any better and didn't know there were other tools.

            Pak Explorer might as well be malware. If you recommend it to someone, you are just hurting them.
