       quake2 - classic first person shooter




       This manual page documents briefly the quake2 command.

       Quake  II  is  a popular first-person shooter game, released in 1997 by iD Software.  This
       wrapper script will launch the Quake II engine.  The  game  data  needs  to  be  installed
       independently using the 'game-data-packager' program, and by default it will be looked for
       at /usr/share/games/quake2 and /usr/share/games/quake2-demo.

       This wrapper script accepts a few GNU-style options.  Any further arguments are passed  to
       the  engine  unmodified.   Consult  the  engine  documentation  for full details, but most
       engines support a syntax where you can give console commands  by  prefixing  with  a  plus


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

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.

              Select a non-default Quake II engine binary

       --demo Use the demo data, even if you have both the demo and the full version installed


       Play the demo in cooperative mode: quake2 --demo +map demo1 +set coop 1

       Connect to a server for multiplayer:
              quake2 +connect

       Run the client as a temporary dedicated server (see the quake2-server
              package  for more server infrastructure): quake2 +set dedicated 1 +set deathmatch 1
              +map q2dm1
