Troubleshooting Quake 3 1.27h
10:21 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Since the Quake 3 1.27h update was released yesterday, many Mac gamers have been reporting various crashes and other problems with the new version. According to posts in the IMG forums, readers have been experiencing unexpected quits and freezing. Graeme Devine updated his .plan again with a tip on how to rid yourself of these troubles:
You need to have all the current pak files to use this update (pak0->pak5), if you're at all concerned about whether or not you have them, or don't know what to look for, then please wait for the installer version.To clarify his statement: You cannot update from 1.17 to 1.27h. You must download the 1.27g beta installer, which contains all the necessary .pak files, and install this first; then install the application for 1.27h. If you are still having problems, try deleting your q3config.cfg file or temporarily remove any mods you have installed so you can isolate the problem. Increasing the memory partition for the application may also help. Also note that you cannot run "demos" from previous versions of Q3A (117 and below). As soon as IMG finishes testing this new build, we will post a report with our experiences and benchmarks.
