I finally managed to actually build binaries for my hobby project CuteInjector started back in 2014.
It’s an alternative to QuakeInjector written in C++/Qt and doesn’t require Java, just extract and run.
The app is feature incomplete, but can download, extract and run maps from the site.
Very cool! I will have to try this. :))
I am new here. Alternatives are always a win. Thanks a lot
To follow the Quake tradition, you should have named it QuteInjector…
Is this beeing further developed or is it the final version?
If so, is a release date for a new version in discussion?
I managed to compile it (would be great to add this to the readme: “needs qt5-webengine, then cd src; qmake && make” or something) but it fails with an error dialog when I try to select a map. See https://i.imgur.com/Wia2nue.png
Would you be interested and capable of actively developing it? The Quake Injector is a burden that hinders progress on Quaddicted becoming more capable and I would love to ditch it completely. But for that we would need a worthy successor. It would involve lots of restructuring.
I would prefer Python as I know it but we’ll take whatever is possible megaman once worked on https://github.com/hrehfeld/python-gpm but we never managed to get it going (I take the blame).
Spirit I’m not sure if you are aware that the current version of Mark V has Quake Injector “built-in”. Type install and the correct map name and the archive is downloaded and installed. I know that Baker wants to eventually add a GUI to this and there are some limitations. Anyway this may be another option for you. I know it’s limited to one source port but perhaps it could be added to Quakespasm, QS-Spiked, FTEQW and other popular ports as well.
Something to consider.
I know and it makes it even harder
As maps and mods can require certain features and that is not modelled in, this can only lead to a okish result. I hope they can make it a library or something.
