Update yquake2 to 7.42

Authored by aleksvor on Dec 3 2019, 5:02 PM.



Upstream changelog:

  • The console can now be scrolled with the mouse wheel.
  • Fix entities on non-horizontal surfaces rendered in full black.
  • Add an option to choose the display Quake II runs on.
  • Add an option to specify the display refresh rate used in fullscreen.
  • Allow mouse sensitivity to be set to non-integral values.
  • Port cvar operations from q2pro. These allow the manipulation of cvar values, supported are: dec, inc, reset, resetall and toggle.
  • Put the client into pause mode during savegame load. This prevents the world getting forwarded about 100 frames during load, time in which the player might be hurt by monsters or the environment.
  • New commands: listentities allows listing of entities. teleport teleports the player to the given coordinates.
  • Fix loading of config files not ending in newlines.
  • A lot of fixes for subtle, long standing AI and gameplay bugs.
  • Quicksaves can now be loaded and saved throught the savegame menus.
  • The software renderer now skips frames with no changes. This improves performance quite a bit, especially on slow CPUs.

Packaging changes:

  • Created symlinks in /usr/bin for easier access from terminal.
Test Plan
  1. Completed the first mission.
  2. Verified that symlinks work as expected.
