Hi everyone, I’m new so I’m doing this both to introduce myself and to ask some questions about Quakespasm since I’m running into a couple of issues
So anyways, I’m just starting to get into Quake after a lifetime of playing Doom. I’m not up to date on “modern games” or gaming in general but I started getting curious about Quake after seeing Ahoy’s YouTube video about it. I’m into EDM, house, drum and bass and some alt stuff from the 90’s.
So my first question is (and I’m not sure if this is the best place to ask this) when I launch Quakespasm in fullscreen mode I get this black bar on top that takes up half of my screen and the game runs in the bottom half, but cropped. This is fixed by going into the video options and turning on (or off it it was already on) the vertical scan option. While it’s a solution I was wondering if there’s a way to fix this problem at launch.
My other question has to do with mouse look. Whenever I start playing, I move my mouse and the camera immediately points down. Is this supposed to be normal behavior or am I doing something wrong?
I’m using macOS as well at 5120 x 2880 resoltuion, just in case it has anything to do with it.
Nice to meet y’all!
