We’re on the track towards a triple-map single player demo release during QExpo 2011. That’s around the 20th of June.
Hi-res textures are being phased in at the moment, even though it is a Pandora’s box of unfinished work, and as is usual by now, no one can agree on a common set. But who else should open Pandora’s boxes in Quake if not us?
gb intends to do a full set of new normal maps for the QRP, since the existing ones are often really over the top. This’ll not kick in until after the demo though.
