Deathmatch Classic is Quake deathmatch with a dash of Half-Life thrown in.

Unused HUD Item Images

HUD images for the Pentagram of Protection, Invisibility and Quad Damage powerups are in the game's files, but are never used in-game.

Unused Models

Large Battery

Why wasn't this used? We'll never know.

An unused model for a large battery for the Lightning Gun, which holds 12 cells as opposed to normal battery's 6. Large batteries in-game use the same model as regular batteries.

Shotgun Shell

Valve spares no expense at making their minor detail models as realistic as possible.

A model for a spent shotgun shell is in the game's files, but the game never uses it when a shotgun is firing.

Half-Life Sprites

All of Half-Life's sprites are in the game's files, and most of them are unused.


The Biosuit from Quake can be found in the level editor and placed in custom levels, but is never used in any of the official levels. It uses the Half-Life HEV Suit model, but has its own unique sounds.

Monster Yell

A strange-sounding monster yell named "sight1" exists in the game's files. There are no monsters in DMC.

Unused Text

Some unused text can be found in the "titles.txt" file.



Please Select a Team:

1. Red
2. Blue
5. Auto-Team

It looks like there was supposed to be a team-based mode in DMC at one time.

Secret Area Text


You Found A Secret Area!

This message appears in Quake if you find a secret area. There are no marked secret areas in DMC, so this never appears.

Bonus Powers


%s attains bonus powers!!!

Text about "bonus powers". There is no way to get a "bonus power" in the game.

10 Health


10 addition(sic) health

Unused text about getting 10 health points. No items give you just 10 health points in the game.

Revisional Differences

Menu and Console Differences

The menu and console were changed to be like the Steam version of Half-Life when it was ported to Steam. For the main menu, the main graphic was changed to an image of a guy in an HEV Suit holding a double barrel shotgun with a sci-fi like background behind him and the removal of the Quake-like font used for menu options. In addition, the console window was given an update, much like the other GoldSrc WON-to-Steam revisions.
