Fiend Run Lite

Fiend Run Lite was a project undertaken by Peter Horvath and Attila Csernyik. Using the "morph" game mod by Jeff Epler, they recorded a QdQ style first-person run playing as a fiend rather than as a human player.

When they showed it to us we thought it was so cool that we ought to refilm it a little and add our usual excuse for a plot. For the refilmed movie, we also changed the normal fiend model into a special one of the QdQ guy riding the fiend, but we kept the existing animations and movements, so this is still "real" gameplay, even if it is a bit unusual!

Demo packages

The demo package is available as a standard Zip file.

Once you've downloaded, installation and running is straightforward: You should make a subdirectory of your main Quake directory called, e.g. frl. This is where you should unzip all the contents of your download to.

When you have done this, you can start Fiend Run Lite by running Quake with the -game frl command line option. If you need more precise instructions, you should refer to the text file.
