Greetings fellow players,
I need some help figuring something out...
I bought Quake: The Offering from GOG but the shortcut launches only the base game so I browsed into the hypnotic and rogue folders but I couldn't find any executable so how do I play the mission packs please?

In Windows there should be 3 shortcuts
(e.g. Win7) > All Programs > GOG.com > Quake - The Offering >
1. Quake (base game, miniGL 0.95)
2. Quake - Scourge of Armagon (Mission Pack 1, miniGL 0.95)
3. Quake - Dissolution of Eternity (Mission Pack 2, miniGL 0.95)

You may also create 2 "proper" shortcuts or edit existing to run correctly
glquake.exe -hipnotic -game hipnotic (for MP1)
glquake.exe -rogue -game rogue (for MP2)

I suggest to find and download GLQuake 0.97 or 0.98a version (glquake.exe file) or better yet use FitzQuake Mark V or QuakeSpasm source engines for better compatibility (Google it).
You'll also need to find and download or to extract, deemphasize and correct cue sheets into MP3 or OGG files for best experience. Due to legal issues current GOG version of GLQuake have no music.

P.S. For Linux based OS make sure that folders id1, hipnotic and rogue are all lowercase.

Greetings,

I already solved the problem, I use Quakespasm thanks to the advices from PCGamingWiki: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Quake
I copied the folders "id1", "hipnotic" and "rogue" from the Quake folder, pasted them into the Quakespasm folder then I just launch Quakespasm and use the console command "game hipnotic" or "game rogue" or "game whatever-expansion-folder-name" to play whatever expansion pack. ;-)
Also, I downloaded the de-emphasized soundtracks from here:
Quake -> https://www.quaddicted.com/files/music/quake_campaign_soundtrack.zip
Scourge of Armagon -> https://www.quaddicted.com/files/music/quake_mp1_soundtrack.zip
Dissolution of Eternity: https://www.quaddicted.com/files/music/quake_mp2_soundtrack.zip
So now I hear good quality soundtracks when I play with Quakespasm. :-)

Actually, according to PCGamingWiki, only the DOS version of Quake and mission packs play their soundtracks out of the box in the GOG version.
I don't understand legal issues which make GOG forbidden to offer a ready to play out of the box game while allowing to include soundtracks in files...
I don't understand how does work the mind of the strange beings who set the rules.
But even so, original Quake engines are only able to play soundtracks from a CD drive, being physical or virtual, so a source port is needed in order to play soundtrack files from the hard drive anyway.
I am happy that modders exist. :-)

Then about Quake II... Oh yes because I also bought Quake II: Quad Damage from GOG and use KMQuake2 thanks to the advices from PCGamingWiki: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Quake_II
In order to play mission packs with KMQuake2, the solution is there: https://www.gog.com/forum/quake_series/quake_2_mission_packs_with_retail_quake_2_and_kmquake
And about the soundtracks, all that we have to do is to copy the music folder from the Quake II folder then paste it into the "baseq2" folder and we are ready to play with KMQuake2! ;-)

There is also this option for those who don't wanna resort to mods or alternative engines.
