They really did a nice job with the KMquake2 engine!
This and the ability to play with a controller really rocks!

There are not really that many controls to this old classic. Run, jump , shoot, change gun, repeat! There is an occasional swim down, and inventory gizmos too...

I think I am going to add Foobar2000, VLC and winamp support to my profile next :) Sad the steam version did not come with the sound track by Rob Zombie...

Oh well, I must have listened to it 100000 times when I first got it.

Quake II

QUake II is the sequel to the original Quake and was originally released in 1997. This profile covers the KMQuake 2 engine, which enhances Quake II in a lot of useful ways for modern computers, notably including full widescreen support, cd-less music options and support for both official expansion packs.

KMQuake 2 can be downloaded here:

However the engine does have the annoying tendency to re-apply the default keys upon exiting the game, which can mess with any profiles. To fix this extract the autoexec.cfg files included in this download in to the right directories, these automatically re-apply the keys needed by this profile on game startup.

This profile was created using a Logitech Cordless Rumplepad2.
