Prerequisites

You will need the following files available on a USB storage device or network share:

Quake III Arena

  • PAK0.PK3 from the full version of Quake III Arena. This file is 457 MB (479,493,658 bytes) in size and can be found in the Quake3\baseq3 directory on the original game disc, or in the Quake 3 Arena\baseq3 directory in the Steam installation.
  • PAK1.PK3 to PAK8.PK3 from the official Quake III Point Update 1.32, and also available from the Steam installation.

Copy these files to a baseq3 directory on your USB storage device or network share.

Quake III: Team Arena (Optional)

  • PAK0.PK3 from the full version of Quake III: Team Arena. This file is 335 MB (351,623,691 bytes) in size and can be found in the Quake3\missionpack directory on the original game disc, or in the Quake 3 Arena\missionpack directory in the Steam installation.
  • PAK1.PK3 to PAK3.PK3 from the official Quake III Point Update 1.32, and also available from the Steam installation.

Copy these files to a missionpack directory on your USB storage device or network share.

The Quake III update PAK files can be downloaded from the ioquake3 website. Alternatively, if you use my Quake 3 Script for Raspberry Pi, these update PAK files will be automatically downloaded and installed.

    I’m going to test this! but there’s something very confusing about the post.

    You say the script downloads the quake files. But also say you have to manually download it.

    Do i have to download quake files before using the script or can I just run it?

      Hi Thiago,

      You can use the Quake 3 Script OR use the Manual Instructions – you don’t have to do both. We recommend using the script, however, some people prefer the manual instructions.

      Before you begin, you will need:
      – Quake III Arena “PAK0.PK3” from the original game disc or from the Steam installation.

      The script will:
      – Install prerequisite Raspbian packages.
      – Download the ioquake3 source from GitHub.
      – Compile the ioquake3 source code.
      – Copy the Quake III Arena PAK0.PK3 to the baseq3 directory.
      – Download and apply Quake III Point Update 1.32
      – Launch Quake III Arena

      Yes, the script will do everything for you, including running Quake III!

      Hope that helps 🙂

      Kind Regards,
      Chris

    Great script and tutorial, still works great! I’ve tried running the dedicated binary (./ioq3ded.arm) and I can’t seem to connect to the PI via any client. I’ve specified the IP of the PI in the multiplayer menu, and WireShark only shows a UDP packet ever few seconds sending “getChallenge” with no response. It’s not my WiFi isolation feature, same happens when wired… have you tried the dedicated server?
