[GAMES] Quake 3 source port with Vulkan renderer (vkQuake3)
« on: September 21, 2023, 05:56:00 am »
This is yet another source port for Quake 3 and considered one of the best Vulkan renderer port out there.



I am happy that the author has finally accepted my Pull Request to make it compile for ppc64le

all of the engines currently still use an interpreter for QVM (which means really bad performance, noticeable in the mod CPMA), quake3e plans on having native support for ppc64le eventually.

Could you please point me to the conversation about native support for ppc64le?

I'm pretty sure he's referencing to your own feature request.

its mainly on the discord. The main dev is in ukraine so deals with bombings.

I should add quake3e as it is can compile just fine on ppc64le (after one guy made some hacky build instructions to slap on it), and it performs better than ioquake3 and the like still.
