Quake 4 help please?????

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I installed the game and it loads up fine, but as soon as you get inside the first base when you have to fight the first enemy the game freezes and has to close. Says error GAMEX86.dll. What does that mean?? My Rig plays FEAR and Battlefield 2142 with no issues so why QUAKE 4? Has anybody else had this problem? Everything up to that point works fine, jumping,firing,blowing up red crates, but as soon as that dude starts to come around the corner BAM!! froze up. I tried uninstalling it and all that stuff but nothing seems to work. Please can someone help me and be thorough and patient with me as I am kind new to computer gaming so this crash after crash is really pissing me off. Thanx to all who help fellow gamers and OC'rs

It's an OGL error.
Make sure you have the most recent Q4 patch.
When you uninstall the game you will need to manually delete everything missed during the uninstall.

sounds like that file is not being copied over correctly. have a look at the disc and see if it is scratched or dirty also can you try it on someone elses comp.
EDIT: grunion got there first
