I am but a lowly dog-killer. I enjoy the unfair fight. Killing helpless dogs with a Death Orb.


Single Player Against The Monsters

You can play single player RuneQuake against the monsters. Follow the download instructions below.

Playing against the monsters is fun to do a few times. I especially like to use the following runes against the monsters:

# Gravity Well

# Rune of Repulsion

# Human Torch

Using the Gravity Well is fun, especially over water or slime. You can use Repulsion to push the monsters into lava or slime, also fun. Setting bad guys on fire is also entertaining.

Play the Game the Way it was NEVER meant to be played

If you "play fair" against the monsters and play at a high difficulty setting, the game will still be challenging even with runes.

With the included download, you will also have:

1) Free hook!
2) No rune drop delay!
3) Tons of Runes scattered around the level!
4) The EXITS work!
5) You can PAUSE the game!
6) You can give yourself a rune using impulses!

Some of these sound like "uh, no shit". I included these so anyone who has played against the monsters in the distant past and had problems because they configged wrong knows this download is configged for optimal play.

Also, remember you can use alternate weapons against the monsters.

# The BFG

# Flame Thrower

# Bombs

# etc, etc


To play against the monsters using Runes:

1) Download this file: Zipped File You Need Click Here
2) Find your Quake folder
3) Extract the downloaded file into the \quake\runes folder
# Your unzip program should make the folder for you

4) Start Quake like this ...

c:\quake\quake -game runes (or however you do it)

Now you are ready to kill monsters with Runes!!

Remember back when these were what people meant by cheating? You might want them when you play the monsters ... GOD and IMPULSE 9 (give all weapons)

And don't forget. When all else fails, give yourself god-mode and the kamikaze rune and have a blast! Lol, Blast! Get it! Ahhh nevermind, it's too damn early for this shit. I'm goin to bed.

I spent a great deal of time using Impulse 124 trying to figure out how to freeze secret doors shut using the Ice Rune on level E1M1, the Slipgate Complex.

Rune impulses come in handy when you have an idea that you want to test.

Also, just some weird info: Zombies don't seem to be able to hurt you when playing RuneQuake against the monsters.

This is likely RuneQuake version 0.5x (somewhere around there).

You can enable the monsters in any version of Rune Quake, though it may take bit of extra work. Slot where do you keep all the monster's function definations? Shouldn't they be in another file?

I modified single-player artifact quake a long time ago and added a hook and made the monsters strafe and fire random weapons at you. Wish I knew what I did with that.
