Yepp, dcevo has been working on a QuakeDC image for years, (since 2003 IIRC). I was part of the team and had access to the members section, but some day the forum got hacked and I could not login any more.
I didn't know that! Please give Curt Grymala a PM, he will give you access again
...and yes, it's true. We are working on a QuakeDC release since 2004. In fact I joined DCEvolution just to work on that release to replace the 'plain' QuakeDC image over at http://www.DCHomebrew.org
And since dcevo ppl are working on so many projects the quake one kinda "got lost".
Nope, we had the release pretty much done in September 2004 and were waiting for Fragger to finalize his documentation of JoyMenu and for the final version of JoyMenu v2.2.
It's just that because he had been workin on JoyMenu/QuakeDC since 2001, he was tired of working on it which is understandable.
Since that we were enhancing the release. I am actually aiming for a release of the final "QuakeDCEvo" version in September.
In the review I don't really regret waiting that long as what we will release will be much better than what we would have released 2004.
Also, the release would have been a DCEvolution release of QuakeDC. Now it's a release featuring and presenting Fragger's hard work on QuakeDC. Reading through my old notes and posts I know that I was aware of how much of an improvement to the original plain QuakeDC this release thanks to Fragger's work is, was and will be, but not really as much as I am now.
Now with nxMakaqu we have a great alternative to the "half-legal" WinCE based QuakeDC. So an image even with different version of nxMakaqu and mods is possible.
Yep, I hereby would like to invite everyone that's interested to join the DCEvolution.net contributor staff and help us with doing some nice nxMakaqu releases featuring all the great mods out there.
I for myself am completely loaded with work until next year, so any help is greatly appreciated
