QuakeDev is not licensed by or associated with Sega, Microsoft, Id Software,
or Titanium Studios.
The QuakeDC engine is a port by Titanium Studios based on the GPL source for
Quake as released by Id Software. This port was only officially available to
licensed WinCE for Dreamcast developers. It was 'leaked' to the public and the
rest is history.
Because of the fact QuakeDC was leaked and that it requires the WinCE directory
from a ripped official Dreamcast game it is considered warez by some people.
But the companies most likely to make this a legal issue (I.E. Titanium Studios
and Id Software) have made their knowledge of DCemulation's possession and distribution
known. They have also indirectly said "We don't care" Id Software
did have the stipulation that the full version of Quake could not be distributed
but that the shareware was ok. Microsoft and Sega should be aware of DCEmulation.org
and its distribution of QuakeDC but have taken no action.
We are not responsible for what you do with the information and files found
on this site. Dont come crying to us if some day Sega, Microsoft, Id Software,
or Titanium Studio's lawyers come knocking on your door. I'd guess they probibly
Do not distribute the full version of Quake under any circumstances. Doing so
is illegal. For those who believe Quake is 'abandonware' it is not. You can
still buy it from Id Software...
just as you can buy any of their older games. (Including the Commander Keen
series I believe) Abandonware is still illegal anyway.
DO NOT contact us or anyone at DCemu about where to download the full version
of QuakeDC or selfboot images of the full version. DO NOT contact us about where
you can get the full version of quake. If you do you MAY get a reply saying
