This post provides comprehensive instructions on how to Install and Benchmark Quake III on the Raspberry Pi platform.
Quake III for the Raspberry Pi is based upon a port of the ioquake3 source code, which itself is a significantly redeveloped port of id Software’s Quake III Arena. In addition to the game play, Quake III is also often used as a benchmarking tool.
To install Quake III on the Raspberry Pi, you must download the ioquake source code for Raspberry Pi and compile it to generate the game executable. There are already many guides available on the Internet on how to do this, but unfortunately nearly all of them are well out of date and no longer work.
This post will guide you through how to install and benchmark Quake III on the Raspberry Pi platform. I have also written a Quake 3 Script for Raspberry Pi that makes the whole task as easy as possible.
