Hi guys, I'm probably about to cause this thread to be spammy for a day but it's for a good cause. Please don't turn this into a holy war or engine arguments but...
I'd like to know what your personal go-to default quake engine is. You don't have to justify your choice and please don't create arguments about which one is best. Just a quick post where you name the engine, and if you can be specific enough to give the exe name that would be doubly useful. Just a a quick
"My name is Preach and I use fitzquake085.exe most of the time."
would be fantastic. If you use 2 or 3 engines frequently you can add 2nd and 3rd place.

I use this because it is the simplest one with the least extra bullshit. The few visual additions (fog, skybox, coloured lighting) are fine when done well, and I really don't want anything more.
2nd place is RMQ, only when the map forces me to use it.

I've been using Tyrann's software engine, which supports bsp2 and helps me pretend like its 1996.

I remember an earlier version I tried did not animate the sky textures correctly on func_walls, which was something I had done in Castle of Oblivion. So I stayed with GLQuake for a while, but I think with 081 I switched for good.

This would have been a great discussion thread!
Anyway I use Fitzquake latest SVN version (which is basically 0.85 with 2-3 half-baked new features)

FitzQuake Vs AguiRe GLQuake

I am JPL and I have two reference engines (aforementioned)
I personally use both of them depending on the map. No need to say FitzQuake is the reference engine I (have been used to) map with. but I always give a try to aguirRe GLQuake, because it has a different look ingame (i.e light and fog density are not rendered the same)..
Well... Fitzquake is my preferred engine in anyway ;)

Also, FitzQuake 0.85, because it comes with no bullshit and I haven't found a reason to use anything else yet.
