Oscilloscope Quake www.bit.ly/oscilquake Most Quake modders focus their efforts on keeping the game running, and looking its best, on modern hardware. Finnish programmer Pekka Väänänen has other ambitions, which is why he decided to port the fast-moving, strafehappy and extremely brown shooter to a Hitachi V-422 oscilloscope. It’s certainly brightened up the game. On his blog, Väänänen offers a post-mortem of the process, from his testing phase and creation of an XY-oscilloscope simulator to a list of possible improvements for anyone who wishes to take the project further. It’s a technical read, but never dry, and if talk of geometry extraction phases and phosphorus decay simulation proves too much, you can always skip to the video demonstration of Episode One, Map One in fizzing green wireframe.
