Quake 1 under Linux using QuakeSpasm 0.85.9 "Couldn't find a cdrip for track" and "Couldn't handle music file"

  • Quake 1 under Linux using QuakeSpasm 0.85.9 "Couldn't find a cdrip for track" and "Couldn't handle music file" unfa

    I'm trying to get Quake 1 music to work under Linux.

    I've downloaded the shareware version, downloaded the music, manually done de-emphasis on them (sound bassier and heavier), packaged both data and music with game-data-packager and installed the resulting .deb files. The game works fine, however the music won't play.

    I've got the music files named track02.ogg up to track11.ogg in /usr/share/games/quake/id1/music. I've copied the music files into ~/.quakespasm/id1/music to be sure the engine can find them.

    This is the terminal output:

    I tried manually playing a track using the console prompt:

    ]music track10.ogg
    Couldn't handle music file track10.ogg

    What am I missing here?

  • The QuakeSpasm developer said that I'd need a full version of Quake for the music to work.

    Bacause of the shareware is limited to only what is inside pak0.pak file - music resides outside it so the engine ignores it.

    Chaning the engine's source code and compiling a custom "prison break" version could probably make it work, but that would be against the Quake's license.

  • I understand that playing Quake on Linux requires three things: An engine A launcher The data files (either shareware or registered) The first two have GPL packages available and are as simple to install on Ubuntu as clicking a link in the Software Center. The third is usually obtained by downloading the shareware version or by taking the data files from an original CD. Can the Steam version of Quake act as a substitute for a CD so that I can play the registered version? If so, is the process documented anywhere? Bonus points if your answer speaks to all of the games in the franchise
