It's finally here. The highly anticipated release of the Quake II: Lost Marine QuakeCon 2005 Test Build for DOOM 3. Get your guns and gear ready for this action packed remix of Quake II within the DOOM 3 engine. Engage in high combat situations in all new areas with all new gameplay. Fight various Strogg enemies along your way including Enforcers, Light Guards and Flyers. Take them out with your Blaster, Double Barrel Shotgun, or other arsenal that you come across. Find secrets and secret areas and powerups. Unlock secret extra content, and much more!
This is a Single Player Demo only. This is not the full or final polished release of the mod. This is only a test build, for progress showing and bug feedback reporting. There are still things we need to finish, including animations, code, art etc. It's packaged in a Windows Installer and is also ready for burning a backup copy of the mod to CD. Don't forget to grab your CD Labels as well.
It's been a tough 4 months developing this demo, but I promised to have something playable by QuakeCon 2005 and I delivered on that promise. Everyone did an excellent job. So without further delay, just click that download button and go kick some Strogg ass!
//====================================================== // Quake II: Lost Marine - QuakeCon 2005 Test Build v.96 - Work In Progress // Thearrel 'Kiltron' McKinney // 1:17 PM 7/18/2005 //====================================================== //====================================================== ABOUT QUAKE II: LOST MARINE //====================================================== Quake II: Lost Marine is a mod for DOOM 3 based off of id Software's original 1997 game, Quake II. There are some similarities, but overall it's all new. You crash land off course in an unknown location on Stroggos, are immediately detected by the Strogg Security Systems and are put straight into the heat of battle. You begin with your Blaster, and find other weapons such as the Shotgun, Super Shotgun, Machinegun, etc. as you progress. Fight several Strogg enemies in this build including Enforcers, Flyers, and three variations of Light Guard's. Everything has been redesigned from the ground up to support many of the features the DOOM 3 Engine has to offer. //====================================================== INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: //====================================================== 1) Run the Q2LMDemo.exe. 2) Run the Quake II Lost Marine shortcut on your Desktop or by clicking the shortcut found in /Programs/Doom 3/Quake II Lost Marine, or..... 3) Run the Doom3.exe, click MODS, and load up Quake II: Lost Marine. 4) Click on 'GAME' and choose your difficulty. //====================================================== BACKUP CD BURNING INSTRUCTIONS: //====================================================== We've made the CD Labels available to you as well which can be downloaded from the mods download page. You will need to do the following to ensure your CD will work after you make your backup copy of the mod. 1) Make sure you burn all files present in the Q2LMDemo.zip. They must not reside in a folder or the Autorun feature will not work. 2) You're granted to make these backups as long as you include all 4 files present in the Q2LMDemo.zip unaltered in any way.

LoadGame, and SaveGame is enabled in game. 2) This is a Work In Progess (WIP) build and there are still plenty of things left to finish up. So before sending any feedback about how something doesn't look right, or not detailed enough, etc. Most of the time has been spent on hooking up most of the core stuff. Now I can focus more on the finer details. 3) If it's too dark on your monitor, try turning up your Brightness found in 'Game Options'. If that doesn't work well, try turning off your lights as room lighting on monitors wash out colors on your screen. To get a crisp picture everytime during play, the game should be played with the lights off to eliminate any glare the monitor may be receiving from natural light, lamps, second monitors etc. 4) There are some temporary assets, animations, etc. in this build. They will be replaced as the project progresses. 5) This is not the full final polished version of the mod. There's still cleanup of current assets going on. //======================================================= MUSIC: //======================================================= The custom soundtrack found in Quake II: Lost Marine has been used with persmission in collaboration from the following bands and musicians.
