Getting started with QuakeC
If you've never programmed anything before but can follow simple directions
you can still learn to code for Quake. If you have programmed in C or C++ or
similar languages it'll be a snap to pick up QC.
Coding newbie or seasoned pro just new to QC you should check the document on
To actually start coding you'll need the sourcecode and a QC compiler. There
are many versions of each available. For the beginner the basic ID 1.06 source
should be used since its compatible with all the available tutorials. The compiler
I recommend is FrikQCC available from here
If your an advanced coder you'll want to check the QC optimizations section
to make your source a bit smoother and efficient.
Here's a few links for the newbie coders...
