Need more of the classic FPS Quake in your life? Check out the newly released Torrent of Impurities by a bunch of Finnish mappers which serves up another dose to blast through.

In development for over 9 months it brings over 7 new maps with thousands of monsters spread throughout. Plenty of secrets to find for this will too with over 120 to scout out and find. Using Copper as the base of the pack, which is a "drop-in improvement to stock /id1/ gameplay and an equally suitable basis for new mods" but it tweaks plenty on top of all their unique additions.

The end of that trailer…definitely feeling the need to blast through this. I have personally checked it out using the QuakeSpasm game engine and it works well. Quake is an absolutely retro classic and the gameplay does hold up quite well in this new episode.

To run it you will need a copy of the Quake data files which you can grab from GOG and Steam.

For the Torrent of Impurities episode grab it here.

Quoting: whizseGoogling the error message from your original message leads to this post with the following suggestion:

"It is the demo1.dem in the pak2.pak that is causing problems in BengtQuake and DarkPlaces. For now, add +map start when running, or just extract everything except demo1.dem from the pak2, then get rid of the pak2.pak."

Might be worth a a try if you prefer darkplaces.
Whoah - tanks for digging that out for me. Tried the "+map start" which got me a bit further, but eventually it died with the same error. I might try removing the demo files, but need to read up about (un)packing PAK files first...
Not a big deal though. I'll use quakespasm for this one for now and stay with DP for the rest. Might even switch to QS, if I like it better. The choice for DP I did many years ago, and never re-evaluated

If you can't stand QuakeSpasm's lack of physics interpolation (which makes the game feel less smooth), you can use QuakeSpasm-Spiked instead.
