Quake 4 setup problems





Shaula
I just bought Quake 4 and since I installed it, I got a big fat dialogue which at the end says "Error during initialization". I'll include the full message at the bottom of this post.

I've run it before on my computer, so I know my specs are good enough. Since this problem, I updated my Nvidia drivers and got what I believe to be the latest updates, and as a matter of fact the problem has gotten even worse: now when I used to get the dialogue, I get the all-too-familiar "So-and-so has a fatal error and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvenience."

Any help?

TonkPilz
well if q4 is the only game that dose this id recommend that you re install the game remove it and install but before you install it make sure that no of your drivers and Cd's are damaged

in worst case download a older driver and try that sens it got worse after updating

*edit*
i found some problems in that error msg you posted not sure what it all means but this

"Couldn't open journal files
execing default.cfg
couldn't exec editor.cfg
couldn't exec Quake4Config.cfg
couldn't exec autoexec.cfg "

looks like some cfg files are missing this shouldn't be a problem coz q4 should jut create new ones but it it fore some reason cant thats a problem check the game Dir if you can find those files

and also this doesn't sound good

"found DLL in pak file: C:/Program Files/id Software/Quake 4/q4base/game000.pk4/gamex86.dll
copy gamex86.dll to C:/Program Files/id Software/Quake 4/q4base/gamex86.dll
could not create destination file
********************
ERROR: DLL extraction to fs_savepath failed

********************

it failed to copy a file "gamex86.dll" I'm no expert but try to copy it your self or just make sure that its not read or write protected

hope any of this helps
