What You Need To Get Started! (SEE FIRST PAGE)
« on: October 20, 2009, 05:58:54 PM »
Note: To those new to Skulltag, read the update first! This contains the newest information about current CQ Skulltag servers, as we may be phasing out some of the older, redundant materials.

Skulltag Client

So you want to play Chex Quest United Skulltag, eh? Well, best place to start is by downloading Skulltag!

All you need to do is download the stable release. Should be 98a.
Use the installer if you're completely new to modern DooM engines. Otherwise, the zipped versions work fine.


Next, you'll need some WADs. These are the game files that contain graphics, maps, and sounds.
We'll be using Chex Quest 3, TNCQ:G2 Base, and the original Chex Quest IWAD.

Now, you may be wondering about the file names. TNCQ:G2 is basically DooM 2's IWAD, but with all content replaced with Chex Quest stuff. It allows us to play normal maps and mods. The Chex Quest IWAD is named 'doomu.wad', as it really is a copy of The Ultimate Doom, just missing all the DooM parts, and the first few things being Chex Quest itself. Also, Chex Quest 3 contains the whole v1.4 release, but you only need the chex3.wad part from it.

You also will want to get:

This replaces most of Skulltag's DooM-like stuff with Chex Quest related items. The second one also adds skins to Skulltag that are more Chex Quest like. The last one is the CQLounge that will be in use during the day for hanging out till night time, when we schedule matches.

Voice Chat Server

Included with our CQ server is a voice chat server! Now you can keep the game flowing w/o having to stop and type a message!

You will need the Mumble Voice Chat Client. For more information on how to use, and to register your name on the server, send a personal message to the user 'brain candy'. She is over that aspect of the server.

In your PM, please include your:
  • e-Mail
  • Desired Username
  • Desired Password

She will message you back with details on how to connect to the server.

Connecting To The Server

Now, you have Skulltag, you have the voice chat, whats next? Actually getting in the server!
Navigate to your Skulltag directory (or your Start Menu folder) and open Doomseeker. This is the included server browser. All you need to do is search the list for a server starting with 'Chex Quest United'. This is our server, and will always be preceded with that phrase.

The server is also private, so not just anyone can get in.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Enter that into the Server Password prompt, and it will let you in!

Be sure to set up your player! Choose your skin, color, and nickname. Also, you may want to change your control scheme according to your favorite setup.


Hope to see you on Skulltag sometime soon!

-Atarian




UPDATE 6/15/2011

If you're looking for some multiplayer Chex Quest action, try the CQ Skulltag Pack! It's currently hosted 24/7 on Canadian Bacon #10.  You do not need Doom 2 to play, everything you need to play is available for free.

If you have never used Skulltag before, here is what you need.

The Skulltag engine, which comes with Doomseeker: http://www.skulltag.com/download/   - Install this first.

Chex3.wad: http://www.chucktropolis.com/downloads/ChexQuest3.zip    - This is your IWAD. Put that in your Skulltag directory.

The .pk3 is posted on wadhost.fathax.com, so you don't need to download the PWAD. Wadseeker will find the resources you need automatically. Just be sure that you have the right version of Chex Quest 3

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.



Once you have Skulltag installed, and Chex3.wad in your Skulltag directory, open up DoomSeeker (its icon is a red letter 'D'). In the upper right of the window is a search box. Type in part of the name of server in that box (usually "Chex " is enough to make it the only server shown).

These are the servers I am currently hosting:

IWAD: Chex3.wad

<[IFOC] Server> Chex Skulltag Pack PXX-XX Duel
<[IFOC] Server> Chex Skulltag Pack PXX-XX Zorchmatch
<[IFOC] server> Chex Skulltag Pack PXX-XX LMS
<[IFOC] Server> Chex Skulltag Pack PXX-XX Survival with fast monsters (stock Chex3 maps)

IWAD: Chex.wad

<[IFOC] Server> Chex Quest Advanced Survival
<[IFOC] Server> Chex Quest: The Lost Quest Survival - needs the opengl renderer

IWAD: Doom2.wad

<[IFOC] Server> UAC Ultra Survival: 1 Life, UV
<[IFOC] Server> UAC Ultra Survival with Shooting Monsters With Guns: 1 Life, UV
<[IFOC] Server> Duel32 with Freelook and other non-vanilla flags enabled.
<[IFOC] Server> Cybercrime 3 Deathmatch
<[IFOC] Server> Legendary CTF 35b
<[IFOC] Server> Cybercrime + Shooting Monsters with Guns

IWAD: Doom.wad

<[IFOC] Server> Ultimate Doom Survival, 3 lives, Nightmare

If you want a place to meet to organize games or talk about the mod, join my IRC Channel, #IFOC: irc://irc.skulltag.net/IFOC

If you would like to see screenshots of this mod, see this topic: http://www.chexquest.org/index.php?topic=3296.0

Pinned it. I've been waiting for one of these, and I've meant to get around to making one myself, but I'm glad I didn't have to do all the work.  Thanks Atarian! XD

a fw questions. is the TNCQ:G2 wad Sliminator's wad of his mod or an entirely different wad?
and is it the same with this wad.
TNCQ2IAWD.wad?
Also will the skins work in CQ3? I have tried it before with the skins and arena wads loaded as Pwads but I couldn't get anything.

I think CQ3 restricts it to the one skin...maybe...

A little story on the TNCQ:G2 Base...

Slime originally made an IWAD for his mods. But as he updated alot, the large file size made him split it into a custom IWAD (TNCQ2IWAD) and a PWAD for it. That IWAD became a standard for his mods, and since it was DooM2 compatible, it let us play several mods and game modes.

Yay for E-rated FPS-es!

Yeah, I'm not sure on the compatibility of skins in CQ3...I'll have to look into it.

yup, I find that CHexquest textures in doom are just as scary with normal doom too.
this being is because it chexquest you don't really have anything jump out and surprise you

No! I've been in computer confusion for the past 2 days ><

This evening (now 2 hours till 7PM EST), I need to get Mumble, setup, connect, get the VNC, setup, connect, update Skulltag, reset the server, post info here, try to get my videocard to behave under Win 7, then hop in the server and deal with everyone ><

CC, if you're not there, I will DIE.

EDIT: OH NO. I can't get into the server to do remote stuff! and BC isn't on skype...
