For some reason, some guy decided to re-write the original Quake engine to use 
pixel shaders instead (ala Doom III).  Of course, this requires a decently 
powerful graphics card, but it runs OK on my laptop with an ATI Mobility 
Radeon.  Those of you with the GF3/4 will have to report how this runs.  It 
actually is interesting seeing the full shadows of monsters, and such, casting 
on the walls and boxes.

First, you'll need the original Quake .. here is the link to the Shareware 


Next, go to Tenebrae's website and get the mode and extract it to the Quake 
directory created from the install above.

Finally, run tenebrae.exe and your off!  For better performance, I suggest 
using a command line like:
        tenebrae -width 320 -bpp 32

... but for the prettiest picture ... you can change the width to 640, 800 or 
1024 so set the resolution.
