    yeah but asfar as I can tell it will only compile under MVC++ so us borland people must suffer Quake-less.

    true, unless you want to port it over(im seroiusly only joking)...

    but then theirs code warrior, ahh yes my beloved. The greatest compiler ever, a port is almost unnecessary... works with quake 3 fine... why not Quake 2?

    so in theory, you can download the source code, compile it and get quake 2 for free?.....

    You only download the source, you still need the resources. But it's so old you should be able to pick it up for almost free anyway.

    Of course it is open source. It always has been.

    So are:

    Doom
    Doom 2
    Quake
    Quake 3

    Yes, Quake 3 is ALSO open source. You just cannot find it on the source page. You have to visit the Quake 3 page.

    The full source hasn't been available and the full Quake 3 source isn't available. The Quake 3 source that is available is for mod creation.
