Barnes -- the author of Q2XP -- hangs around InsideQC occasionally. Great guy. And smart as hell.

quake 2 Xp is great, even if the Xpacs has no texture pack support at most, the results are still impressive, it feels like the X360 quake 2 port that came with Q4 years ago.
Though Yamagi is also impressive too since you can deactivate the texture filtering for monsters while keeping the OGL goodies, also its smooth.

Why can't you plebs just be happy with vanilla quake? It's as bad as dressing an old man up in high heels and a mini skirt. Have some respect!

I just tried it and it looks really nice. It also tweaked the nightmare difficulty to have respawning monsters like in Doom. That's interesting. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it, but it brought a twist to the gameplay that I want to try out, especially since Quake II can get kind of easy once you get all the high-tier equipment. That addition will probably keep me constantly on the move.
And of course, there's always Yamagi Quake if you want a vanilla nightmare difficulty mode.

Yeah im going to think twice about doing Ground Zero on Nightmare.
in fact, this would be kinda interesting for a few maps, like strogg space stations with teleport hubs.
also it appears that Turic's Kmq2 weapons works on yamagi, but the texture is fubar because its another format

About Q2XP, i think the monster respawn in Nightmare difficulty can be disabled with the console command: g_monsterRespawn 0
it worked in the last version of the engine, so maybe it will work with this new version ;)

Found this info on twitter:
Yamagi Quake II 7.21 has been released today!
Some notable changes:
* It can now load .ogg music tracks in the naming scheme GOG uses
* Weapons are rendered with their own FOV (r_gunfov)
* Some of the glitches in the software renderer have been fixed

if this MAP JAM actually happened!
Btw, Yamagi appears to be the source port of choice for SP and still has an active development.
Wrong Its Kmquake2 !

Yamagi is to Quake II what Quakespasm is to Quake 1.
Kmquake2 Is Dead And Knightmare Is Gone

in fact he kept teasing before he disappeared about custom huds for KMQ2 like Quake 4 and the straight up port of doom 3 one used by the late Quake 2 Evolved(another good port who died fast for "reasons").
as for ports, Only Yamagi, Q2Pro and Q2XP are up to date, though the later 2 supports md3 and more, and yamagi hates custom stuff, in fact i tried to use it with GOGQ2 and it didn't recognized the music, also it kept crashing on software.

GOG has their "music" directory next to "baseq2" instead of inside it (along with some other quirks with the missionpack tracks). That's not Yamagi's fault per se, although its latest release has in fact been changed to recognize and adapt when it is dealing with a GOG install.
Dunno about the software renderer probs.

here it kept crashing when i tried to play fullscreen, wile VQ2 ran fine, it think its my pc who hates YQ2.

i simply gave the idea, i suck at organizing things, and my free time kills me for it :\
but as i said, a QUMP Hub for Q2 would be neat, i love Q1 but i love the fast pump of Quake2SP
also everyone here is waiting for EricW tools update, since it will feature Q2 Lightning stuff, which will be easier to make more maps.
