7 - Quake 3 Engine Game Specific Shader Keywords

Q3Map2 Shader Manual

The Quake 3 Engine has been licensed to several different companies for the development of third party games. This chapter is a sub-manual documenting the Quake 3 Engine game specific shader keywords developed for third party games like Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, Jedi Knights II, Soldier of Fortune II, Jedi Academy, Star Trek: Elite Force, as examples.

Note: These are just keywords that have been submitted by people on the forums/irc channels. I have no idea about the accuracy of this chapter. Please use with caution. Please e-mail me (Obsidian) for any additions or error corrections to this list.

All default Quake III Arena shader keywords *should* also work for the below list of games.
