Definitive WAD Collection
I had an idea that since alot of the older Quake sites are now shutdown, those of us who have older .wad files should round them up and put them on like a sort of directory for everyone to access.

The thought occurred after someone was looking for a snowy .wad, but I realized that it got somehow deleted. There are also a number of other .wads that I lost but couldn't find by Googling them or other means.

So -- anyone who has a large collection of .wads that can't be found elsewhere, and is willing to upload them somewhere (I have 15MB of webspace, I know it's not much but...) let us know in this thread. Thanks.

Thanks alot for those. 
Texture Preview 
Most texture authors have made their own preview images, and I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you posted a copy of that. Otherwise, most wads have already been used in a map, so you might consider just having a screenshot of a relevant map using those textures (for example, the preview of DKT Ep 3 might have a screenshot of JPL's map). 
Mafia Textures 
Awhile back I said I would like to create some 1930's era textures, houses inside and outside and what-not - and use it in a haunted house type map. I'd still love to, however I have other design priorities (of which also have the incentive of profit), and I was recently digging through the textures of Mafia.

If anyone has Mafia, might anyone wanna compile a WAD? There are some GREAT textures in there, over 4500 - from brick to houses to metal, stone, floor. While it has great 1930's definitive textures, it has many other textures that don't really pin it to that era.

Mafia data extractor here:

Need to register login to download though. 
What Do You Think? 
the dkte1 site is just uploading.

If someone feels like helping with the html/preview sites, I could send you the program i use (old free Brennig's). You could also easily start from a directory listing, just adding some html code. FTP access will be given to trustworthy people (just ask if you want). 
A Link Would Be Nice... 
I saved some, but I am wondering how to upload them: - 1.367 - 1.851 - 3.658 - 538 - 773 - 3.250 - 2.086 - 53 - 2.339 - 2.471 - 818 - 6.370 - 3.352 - 2.948 - 7.082 - 3.904 - 740 - 2.985 - 3.657 - 340 - 1.684 - 4.406 - 1.024 - 110 - 2.456 - 2.408 - 2.693 - 3.290 - 512
textures_speedtech_q3 - 3.483 - 3.604 - 1.636

If there is any interest, let me know. 
Madfox u can upload to is a free host and suport files untill 100 mb u just have to let link here for Spirit download! 
Rapidshare Is Evil 
and I already sent madfox a mail ;) 
Nice Work Spirit 
Are you going to zip (or even better 7-zip) the wads? They compress pretty well.

Let's hope no-one objects to the archive. 
true nobody uses winzip anymore :) rar or 7-Zip 
it serve you well... 
true nobody uses winzip anymore :) rar or 7-Zip

errr... me !!

In anyway, I also have some textures not mentionned in post #104. These wads are:

tiger.wad (it firs with tiger tank Prefab)

Let me know if you need the stuff...

PS: I'm currently working on Doom3 conversion to Quake1 format... You can already add it to this list, but it will be ready next month... I hope... I alreadyprocess 2/3 of the stuff.. 
Send Them TO ME!! 
I know Spirit offered to help, but just in case, I would like to put them up on Circa1984 as well. Send me an e-mail with however many of those you feel like sending to lolleyballz AT gmail dot com  
All these files have a total size of 37MB zipped.. so no there's no possibility to send it by e-mail, but splitting it at least in 4 parts... and I've removed knave that can be downloaded from Kell's website...
I think the best thing is taht you send me an email with exactly what you need (or what you don't have.. I guess all the stuff is not required..) and then I could upload a related zipped file to my website in order to share the stuff...
BTW: all these files comes from geneticrose website that is dead from a while now ;)

How about the hosting? Is it ok to host the pure wad files? Are shall I try to find the original zips (as long as there are...)? I will zip each wad that's uploaded to help people with dialup. Do you want to easily download the extracted wads too? Then I would offer both the zip and wad.

And is it ok to extract the textures from each wad, convert them to png and just slap them in another folder for previews? Copyright or something?

I don't want to piss anyone off. Of course this is a small community but there is much talent that should be treated as it wants to. 
I have about 141 wads for Quake in the original zips with readme file or whatever came with them, completely original as I received them, (also about 25 for Quake2, and 143 texture packs for Quake3 all Original zips), I can get you the list later if you want, bit busy at the moment though. I can then upload them to your site for you if you want, I have in the past uploaded maps for you. 
OK, I just read your email.. I will check this evening what to upload...

Concerning wad or zipped wad hosting, I thing zipped wad should be enough for many of us, and very helpfull for you to save disk space... it's up to you ;P 
Quake textures - 161MB
QuakeII textures - 54MB
QuakeIII textures - 731MB

You may not want the q2/q3 stuff?, and there would be some that you already have in the Quake stuff which wouldn't be needed, but thats the total size of what I have 
If you have got all the original zips then I would prefer that of course. The Quake1s of course. Give me an email address ;) 
Email Sent 
you can just reply to that if you like. 
Quake textures - 161MB
QuakeII textures - 54MB
QuakeIII textures - 731MB

Sounds great! We need this wads uploaded somewhere 
do you guys know of a better set of doom textures for q1? i dont mean new textures done doom style, but the original ones that look good in quake. the ones i have (that i got from are great, but they look funky in quake. fitzquake makes them look better, but still a bit weird.

and what happen to doom3D? 
AFAIK, what you found on Quaddicted are the only existing Doom/Doom2 textures set that have been converted for quake (I guess it is, cause these are the only one I saw, maybe others are existing, but not shared). I guess it maybe have to be reworked in order to remove fullpixels, etc... but I'm not sure...
Concerning Doom3 texture sets, I'm working on the conversion to Quake since last month (at least), and it is not really easy: the process is slow, due to the fact it is very "manual" (i.e scripting the conversion is not easy at all) Nevertheless, I hope to finish the stuff soon... and then post it on Quaddicted, with Spirit agreement for sure ;)
