Yagami Quake 2 works.

I installed Quake 2 a bit differently than your instructions. I'm running Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64bit.

I had an issue with the command line: innoextract -d output setup_quake2_quad_damage_2.0.0.3.exe
Kept getting "-d" 1 errors" or " d 1 errors".

I used Wine to install Quake II Quad Damage (GOG) and copied all the files over to the Yagami Quake 2 folder (even over writing some in the process). Then, I uninstalled Quake II Quad Damage. From there, Yagami runs all the Quake II games flawlessly.

I've since created a zip file of the fully functional Yagami Quake 2 game and backup copied it to my external hard drive for safe keeping (the whole point of DRM-free).

You've got one Hell of a good Linux source port there. As a new Linux user (as of a year ago), I greatly appreciate it.

Hmm a bit strange, I just tried the command myself and didn't encounter those issues. I'm glad you got it to run though, it's a really great game.
I just installed this on Mint 17, seems to work fine except that the cinematics only play for a second and then drop me back into the game. Any idea how to fix this?

Which version of Mint and which Gpu + Drivers?

It's mint 17.2, and a G92 with the 340.96 drivers.

But, after messing around for a while the videos did play correctly, so the problem was on my end.

Thanks for the reply, and for the setup instructions. It's fun going back 20 years to an old school FPS, and without having to resurrect a windows machine.

Glad you sorted it out :-)

It's a great game and despite Q3 being the most popular, Q2 remains my fav one.

A few months late to this party, but did you try using the -L switch to convert all file and directory names to lowercase? Seems at least one file in the installer has a typo in its directory path (instead of "id1" it says "Id1" with an uppercase i), and that combined with Linux directory names case sensitivity... it trips over that and produces an error.

[EDIT] Gah, somehow missed that this was Quake II (tiiiiiiiired and spent way too much time trying to figure this out for Quake 1 just now. T_T), but it might still apply? Maybe? Worth a shot?

Footage of me using Ganni1987's custom Linux Yamagi 5.32:
https://vid.me/Qesb

Works great.
Thank you so much for this post. Quake 2 runs like a charm!
I had some trouble at first with the music and music.sh command until I placed the music folder included with GoG in the newly created Quake 2 folder.
The extraction instructions were complicated, but luckily enough I temporarily had a windows laptop nearby so I just got all of the game files out of the folder after the windows installation
The game launched only after I moved the quake2 executable from the yamagi quake installation from my Linux distro's software center.

Sorry for the slight confusion, I try to make the guide as simple as possible but more often than not it ends up a bit involuntarily complicated.

Can't believe it's been almost a year since I wrote this, I don't remember it all but I can safely say the music part was a bit of a nightmare to get it correctly.

Also in my guide I focus a bit on innoextract because it's a complete native Linux solution to extract GOG Windows installers without needing Wine or Windows.

Hope that clears it up a bit :D
