Alinea Computer offers Quake 2 as a digital version for AmigaOS 4.x

Brussels – April 17, 2024

Alinea Computer has taken over the distribution of Quake 2 for AmigaOS 4. The first Amiga version of Quake 2 dates back to 2002 by Hyperion Entertainment and has been continued and greatly improved in this tradition. Steffen Häuser is responsible for the port and has implemented numerous improvements. In addition to support for various mission CDs and mods, GL4ES/Warp3DNova support and playing soundtracks as OGG Vorbis have also been implemented.

The AmigaOS 4 version is available for download from Alinea Computer.

It should be noted that to run the AmigaOS 4 version of Quake 2, the data files of the PC version are required. These can be purchased at a reasonable price, for example, via Steam. Freely available mods and mission CDs are already available on Aminet.

Features and system requirements at a glance:


  • AmigaOS 4 native version
  • GL4ES, MiniGL, and Software Renderer
  • full support for mission CDs "The Reckoning" and "Ground Zero"
  • Ports of the unofficial mission CD "Zaero" and about 50 multiplayer mods will be released soon on os4depot/Aminet, these downloads require the new version of Quake 2
  • AmigaInput support
  • CD audio works again (in the old version only compatible with older CD drives)
  • As an alternative to CD audio, Ogg Vorbis files can be played as a soundtrack, in this case, the music files from this version are preinstalled with a Steam/Gog install
  • Installer now works with both PC CD version of Quake 2 and with the Steam and Gog Classic version, using the Steam/Gog Classic installer will also install the two mission CDs. We recommend using the Steam version for easy installation.
  • As an alternative to the .cin intros, the game now also supports .avi and .mpeg files (a script to convert the .ogv files of the Steam version is included on the ISO, if you want the higher resolution video files)

System Requirements:

  • Software: AmigaOS 4.1 and the data files from Steam, Gog, or CD version.
  • Hardware: At least 150 MHz PowerPC, 32 MB RAM, Graphics card, at least
  • 1 GB of free hard disk space, A1222 is currently not supported, game can also be played on QEmu and UAE PPC
