Quake 3 Arena CE not working on Dell PDA

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I been having trouble trying to run Quake 3 Arena CE on my Dell X51V PDA. I did exactly what the install notes say but I get this

"The file 'Q3CE' cannot be opened. Either it is not signed with a trusted certificate, or one of its components cannot be found. You might need to reinstall or restore this file."


I have basically converted the PAK0 file already using the converter it came with and put that in the baseq3 folder. I got the PAK0 file from the full game of Quake 3 Arena on my PC so it should work fine. All I can say that even after I converted the PAK0 file it still is around 440mb so it's a big file but I used a 2GB SD card so I have enough room. The PAK0 file is updated since I was using the latest version of the game on my PC.


I have Windows Mobile 5 on my PDA now basically the original OS that came with the X51V. Also I took the libgles_cm.dll file out since my PDA has hardware acceleration.



This is what I have inside my Q3A folder on my 2GB SD card but doesn't work for some reason.


q3ce.exe
gx.dll
baseq3\q3config.cfg
baseq3\pak0.pk3
baseq3\cgamearm.dll
baseq3\qagamearm.dll
baseq3\uiarm.dll

I tried using WM 6.1 and it still shows the same error message. I don't know if the 6.1 version will run better than 5.0 eatherway but both don't run the game. Just wondering but does Quake 3 run better on Windows Mobile 5.0 or 6.1 Pro? That's if I do somehow make the game run that is.

Is there anyone here that knows how to run this game? I see a lot of views on this topic but no replys? I really want to make this game work. Please help me.


Btw I did restore back to WM 5.0 since that was the original OS that came with the PDA. I did only wanted to test to see if the 6.1 would work but it didn't same thing happened.


Now there must be something wrong that I did since it doesn't work but all I know is that I put the q3ce.exe and gx.dll file in the Q3A folder and made a new folder called baseq3 and put q3config.cfg, pak0.pk3, cgamearm.dll, qagamearm.dll, uiarm.dll



But that seems to not work since I got the error message. I really need help on this guys. Thanks

Is everyone ignoring me here or is this forums dead? I been waiting for a while but no replies I wonder why.
