       quake - classic first person shooter




       This manual page documents briefly the quake command.

       Quake  is  a  popular  first-person shooter game that appeared in 1996,
       released by iD Software.  This wrapper script  will  launch  the  Quake
       engine.   The  game  data needs to be installed independently using the
       'game-data-packager' program, and by default it will be looked  for  at

       This  wrapper  script  accepts  the two common GNU-style options to get
       information on the program.  Any further arguments are  passed  to  the
       engine  unmodified.  Consult the engine documentation for full details,
       but most engines support a syntax whereby engine switches are  prefixed
       with  a minus sign, and you can give console commands by prefixing with
       a plus sign.  See the examples section for some common cases.


       These options are accepted for WRAPPER-OPTIONS in the synopsis.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.


       These are all engine dependent.
