Xonotic is a modern yet authentic Quake; it runs on the 'DarkPlaces engine', which was initially based on the Quake 1 engine.
As explained by: https://www.xonotic.org/
"Xonotic is an addictive, arena-style first person shooter with crisp movement and a wide array of weapons. It combines intuitive mechanics with in-your-face action to elevate your heart rate. Xonotic is and will always be free-to-play. It is available under the copyleft-style GPLv3+ license."
If you want to use the desktops at the university to play Xonotic, there's a quicker way to download the game files.
# head to your home dir, and make a directory named 'games' cd ~ mkdir games cd games # copy the xonotic zip to said ~/games folder, and unzip it cp ~csclub/games/xonotic-0.8.2.zip . unzip xonotic-0.8.2.zip # execute the linux startup script for xonotic cd Xonotic ./xonotic-linux64-sdl # or, startup xonotic and directly connect to the server being used for the LAN ./xonotic-linux64-sdl +connect cssbin.cs.mun.ca
Use the previous instructions above, but switch out the
cp ~csclub... line for this:
... # download the xonotic zip to said ~/games folder, and unzip it wget https://dl.xonotic.org/xonotic-0.8.2.zip unzip xonotic-0.8.2.zip ...
This setup also assumes you're using Linux/MacOS, see https://www.xonotic.org/faq/ for Windows instructions.
If you're using the desktops on campus, then you should be set.
However, if you're using your own setup, make sure you are connected to the
@Memorial wifi network, not the
@Memorial-Guest network; you cannot access the local network through
The server will be running on campus, by the hostname of
cssbin, connecct it to it by putting into following into your address field within Xonotic:
After following the instructions above to download Xonotic, just run the following command in the root directory of the game to connect to the server.
# within the ~/games/Xonotic folder ./xonotic-linux64-sdl +connect cssbin.cs.mun.ca
Reminder: the keyboards and mice in the lab are a little sub-par for highspeed first person shooters, and there's also a significant lack of audio coming from said computers too, therefore if you have your own gear to bring with you, bring it!
