Quakespasm Engine
This engine needs its own thread.

Feedback: I like the OS X version, but I have to start it from the terminal for it to work and can't just double-click it like a traditional OS X app. I'm sure you guys already know this, either way great engine.

By The Way 
Is there no other option to track the maptime in the HUD/stats tab instead of skill level than adding -fitz to the shortcut? 
What I Am Still Missing 
What I would still like to see in Quakespasm, either in the original release or the Spiked spinoff:
- Vanilla waterwarp (as seen in Mark V)
- .vis file support (for Mark V lit/vis packs)
- some option for gun-specific fov/repositioning

These are the features I am missing most compared to Mark V. Besides that, the increased limits in this port make it the preferred choice when playing advanced content like Arcane Dimensions.

Oh yes. Also, option to NOT restart the music track that is already playing if loading the save or restarting the same level (like in Doom)! 
Just To Be Sure 
I know I had already mentioned this a while ago, especially the waterwarp thing. I am trying vkQuake right now which has it, but the missing .vis file support still weighs heavily. Using (kinda) weapon repositioning with scr_ofsx "-2" in autoexec.cfg as a workaround, but a menu option for this would be better. 
QSS 0.93.2 For MAC 
the latest QSS version available for MAC is the "old" 0.92.2-admod.

is EricW planning an upgrade to 0.93.2?

Even better if provided with the "MODS" menu like the previous one!
The young generations have problems in understanding the beauty of the console!

QS Needs That Mod Menu From QSS 
And apparently there's an incompatibility issue with QSS and the latest AD 1.80, on Mac OS. 
#3706 : NightFright 
> Using (kinda) weapon repositioning with scr_ofsx "-2" in autoexec.cfg as a workaround

Both QS(S) and vkQuake should have a cvar for this:

* New "r_viewmodel_quake" cvar. Set to 1 for WinQuake gun position (from MarkV). 
#3709: Gila 
Yeah, I am using that (pity there's no menu option for this). For my taste, weapons are still too low with it. But well, it's also because the statusbar is in the way. Maybe it's really time to switch to one of AD's new fancy side panel-HUDs as a new default. 
You're running with a status bar alpha less than 1; set it to 1 and it will correct the position, obviously as a trade off for no longer having a translucent status bar.

QuakeWorld has a nice HUD that it would be cool if other engines picked up, and that also works well with gun model positioning. It's about as close to an official alternative as it's possible to get. 
Status Of The Bar 
Ah well, I will get used to it. I wished there were ways to do things like that Fullscreen Statusbar Mod I made with 3saster for GZDoom.

Consider that statusbar request cancelled, then. Vanilla waterwarp and .vis support should be doable. I saw there are feature requests for it over at the QSS Github already. For vkQuake, I made the tickets by myself. 
#3708 - QS 0.93.2 For MAC 
In QS 0.93.2 For MAC, elevators are definitively an issue, irrespective of the map.
Just try the elevator in the start map of AD 1.8. 
QS 0.93.2 For MAC 
... or the elevators in E1M1. The elevator blocks if you are going up. No problem if you go down.

I didn't have this issue with 0.92.2. 
Elevators` Problem Solved! 
... my fault --> host_maxfps above 72!

I apologise, a warning was even present in the console. 
Hey, I'm using the OS X version of Quakespasm with a 16:10 resolution and none of them look right. The screen's either too high or too low, so I get black bars on edges. Any way to fix it?

PS. Sorry for my noob question, this is literally my first post. 
Adding -width x -height x to your command line will run Quake in a custom resolution of your choosing. Not sure how this would work on a Mac but doesn't a popup appear when you launch on Mac?

More info here 
Yeah, that's the obvious thing, right, but doesn't fix the problem. I select the right resolution for my monitor and honestly all of them have the screen either being too high or too low, cutting off parts of the game. 
Vkquake And Dynamic Lights 
Since there is no vkQuake thread I figured I would ask this here. In the latest version of vkQuake (1.05.0) any and all brush entities are not affected by dynamic lights, including lights from rockets and weapon flashes, flickering or strobing lights, etc. They always remain the same lit value, note the first secret door in e1m1 is fullbright despite being in an area with a flickering light.

Is this behavior intentional, or is it a bug? 
That has to be a bug. I've just had a quick look over the Github and the code for calculating lights on brush models is still there. I didn't look over it comprehensively enough to pinpoint what the bug may be, however. 
Change Conchars With Quakespasm 
Hi! i was trying to change console font but i cant find the way, how can i do it? and where can find conchars example to test it?
