Anyone tested Quake 2 / Quake 3 test?

I ran Unreal Tourney, and while it did not hang the OS, it ran like crap, I couldn't move and I could see the system mouse cursor in the game. Took forever to load and to exit as well... I think thats pushing Classic a bit far . (G4 450 128 ram)

The Quake 2 I was mentioned was the one designed for MacOS X. Though, it is interesting to see how well it classic games are handled, as this will certainly be a selling point for some home users. I'll create a new thread for the issue of classic games.

Not good news I'm afraid.

I downloaded the MacOS X server version from the Omni website and tried it on the beta and it doesnt work. Apparently MacOS X Beta doesnt run MacOS X server applications.

I emailed Omni, asking if a version of QuakeII was going to be released for the beta and they replied saying "they are currently working on QuakeIII".

Which I think is a nice way of saying no.

Hmm. OmniGroup said they were working on it? Sounds weird, considering id themselves has said Q3 will run natively on OS X in their next release...
