Gaming & Entertainment Raspberry PI Jam

Chris’s slides from last nights Brighton Raspberry Pi Jam

He was a great source of knowledge on all things XBMC, I’d definitely recommend hitting him up on his blog  blog.thestateofme.com or twitter https://twitter.com/cpswan


Chris Swan talking about Entertainment & Gaming on the rPI

Quake3 final running on Raspberry Pi's












The Pi’s held up really well during the tournament.  I think the only really issue was the first round all the players where called ‘unnamedplayer’  .  user error :)
Ive put a tar ball of the quake3 binary up online here
to run and play
exit x – and login to the console
type:
then:
tar -xzvf Quake3.tar.gz
then:
cd Quake3
then:
./ioquake3.arm
That should launch the game.  As i mentioned last night I think this is all 100% legal, the engine is definitely released as open source and the level packs dont seem dodgy.  If any one thinks this is incorrect, let me know and i’ll delete the files.  Also, i think this version is fairly similar to the one now available on the raspberry pi store  http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/3131    which is likely to be a better source.
