Forums  /  Quake II (PC)  /  Support for Mission Packs & more?? in Q2PRO
  DraQu

So, here's the deal: I have a friend who I'm looking into hiring to add support for the official Mission Packs (The Reckoning, Ground Zero) & music playback in Q2PRO. Are there any additional features you guys would be interested in? Maybe a proper counter for kills/secrets & a timer like in Q1 or support for the unofficial Mission Packs Juggernaut & Zaero?

I'm still talking specifics with my friend and I don't have any estimate numbers yet, but would any of you be willing to participate in splitting the cost of the project? If so, add me on steam http://steamcommunity.com/id/DraQu/ and I'll keep you updated on what's going on.

Cheers.

Edit 1: Alright, the features to be added are as follows:

1. Support for the official Mission Packs "The Reckoning" & "Ground Zero", also known as Xatrix & Rogue.

2. Statistics tracking that you can display on screen with a few variables. This also includes timing for individual levels + combining those times for each Unit + combined Unit times for complete run time. The stats are displayed on screen in the style of JoeQuake and times are printed in console.
- Stats to track:
- time spent on level in hours:minutes:seconds:milliseconds.
- kills xx/xx
- secrets xx/xx
- Console variables: 0 - off, 1 - only time, 2 - time + kills + secrets
xx/xx meaning that it'll be displayed on screen as x kills/secrets out of the total amount of kills/secrets on a given stage

3. In-game soundtrack playback via Ogg Vorbis. Add an option in the sound options in-game to toggle "Ogg Music On/Off", also a console command with same functionality (1/0).

This all amounts to a total cost of £200 / €270.55 / $296.75, so any help with splitting the cost is very much appreciated. Again, contact me on Steam if you're willing to help http://steamcommunity.com/id/DraQu/

Either way, this is a thing now, and it most certainly is happening. Merry Christmas.

All of those suggestions sound good to me.

That would be awesome man, ty for the work on the client. A cool thing would be to have in-game splits like DeFRaG.

We're currently in the making of a segmented Q2 run in Q2pro, but timing demos is pretty finicky and inaccurate so perhaps Q2timer support woul be great, I suppose

Progress report: Official Mission Packs are now functional. Timer is up next

Is this project still active? Can't wait for in-game ogg music!

Can you also add cinematics support? Is it possible? I really love Q2Pro, but i wish it would also have the full single player package (music and videos). 🙁

Thanks!
