Additional Comments

I played 90% of the single player game (the final boss is too hard for me). It's very long.

  • iGP: Intel HD Graphics 4400.
  • CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-3210M Processor.

Computer is a laptop.

Installed from DVD (quake4.exe = September 2005), then I patched manually to 1.4.2

Installation setup:

export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX="${HOME}/.wine-quake4"

Cancel the installation of Punkbuster. Do not install Direct X 9; when asked by the game.
