No PAK1.PAK?!?!

So, I was reading up on the Wii homebrew site and they have ported Quake to Wii! It can handle all mods and they are in the process of adding online play. Here is the thing...

When you download the .zip for the Quake/Wii port, it comes with PAK0.PAK, which is the demo of Quake. It tells you in the Wii instillation instructions if you have the full version, which I do have, to also add PAK1.PAK from the ID1 folder to the Wii as well so you can experience the full game, here is the problem...

I go into ID1 and I have neither PAK0.PAK or PAK1.PAK.

I download my Quake 1 off a torrent, not a CD, but I'm not sure if this effects that fact that I don't have any PAK files. I talked to a few other people that got their Quake online and they have a PAK0.PAK and PAK1.PAK.

So were are mine?

If it helps I'm running XP-SP3

ALSO:

I'm quite new to Quake 1, and I was wondering what the best control layout was.

If only you would have said "I can't find my CD at the moment, can someone help me out"...

What an interesting project

However, as Spirit has already implied, we are not allowed to post illegal software on this site otherwise we'd get our bits cut off and eaten by the admins and the additional files to help you crack the shareware version of Quake would, unfortunately, come under that heading. It's my understanding that the additional Paks would enable you to play all the Quake levels and allow you to play online.

As for the best set up well thats subjective as it will depend on your personal preferences and what the Wii port can accommodate in keymappings, graphics, etc but almost everyone uses +mlook to allow the mouse to control which direction you are facing and the arrow keys to control movement. A number of players tend to configure the left/right arrow to strafe rather than turn but experiment with it to see if it suits you. If the port will support it you might also consider some binds as they are tremendously useful in some mods, e.g. Bind x "impulse 6; +attack; -attack" will switch to the grenade launcher and lob a grenade every time x is pressed, Bind x "+hook" will enable you to fire and use the grappling in mods/servers that support it. A lot of the newer Quake clients such as Qrack, ProQuake4 and Darkplaces support more functionality, better eyecandy, more mouse button support, more stabilty and it would be interesting to know if these could work on the wii along with all the newer textures that are available designed to bring the game up to date. You never know we could have a whole new audience out there especially if Baker creates another one of his auto-installer zips! I Hope this helps

Kind regards

Monty

Incidentally, as the CD has a Dos installation how do you install it on post XP machines? (I installed mine on a win98 machine in '03 and carried it across to this machine in a USB flash reader.)

Use DOSBox to install the DOS version, then pull the files from the install dir for that.

I DID have the CD a very, VERY long time ago. But it got lost when we moved about 5 years ago and I have gotten a new computer since then. I actually did try to find the CD at a pawn shop or retail store but no luck. When I saw downloading it was my only option, that's what I did.

There are no additional file to crack Quake. As Quake did not take a activation code, the full version of Quake was just a normal file, needed no cracking.

All I'm asking is how do I get my PAK files? I'm not asking for somebody to send them to me, I just need to know why I don't have them.

Do a system wide search for PAK0.PAK and PAK1.PAK. Maybe you installed it on the desktop by accident or it's in the /bittorrent/downloads/quake folder (etc...)
