Raising The Minimum Bar (engine-wise)?
Someone posted that aguirRe's engine has .ent file support, I did a cursory search through the 1.33 source and ... maybe I'm missing something ... but I don't see it.

Also, I was wondering if there is an objection to the "record demo at any time" feature in JoeQuake? Is there something about the feature that could somehow break mod capability?

It is very fragmented. 
Jdhack: 
i agree, it's better (even though it's hacky) to not require progs.dat support, just as skyboxes and fog are supported in most engines via similar hacks.

Thread ended at post #1, where Shambler claimed the instant win.

I ended up looking up your old PlanetQuake home page just to see if you had made any single player maps out of curiousity and I saw the gaming industry note.

Is there something about the gaming industry that tends to sap the positivity, imagination and free-spiritness from the bone marrow?

Please don't this personally, I am really big admirer of 2 of your DM maps in particular my favorite being EFDM12 which is an amazing masterpiece if only it were not so hard to fill it with enough players ;) I'm rather just trying to figure out a pattern of why some func_participants are uppers vs. downers. 
Haha 
Is this a serious question?

Absolutely, positively, emphatically yes.

Even I hate me for how bitter and cynical I've become... sigh.

Yeah, it's because I'm working on a custom progs that I didn't mention it.

Yes. 
Hmm 
In fairness, I think it's partly the membership of func too. That whole free thinking thing we encourage doesn't mix well with an industry increasingly driven by corporate interests and focus groups.

But to sum up; Yes, yes there is. 
Downers. 
I like Quake. I really like Quake.

My comment is not at all incompatible with that. 
I Like 
Shooters. With creamy graphics and good gameplay.

I can't remember ;-) 
So The Question Is 
leave the industry or leave func? 
Lun (re: Commonly Used Engines) 
You forgot the speedrunners that tend to use JoeQuake and GLQuake. And the people who play netquake (as opposed to QW) multiplayer who use ProQuake.
