Well I just got the DVD Special Edition of Quake 4 and have been disappointed with my experience with it thus far.
So, after doing much forum hoping, I'm asking for any tips and/or help with my Quake issues.
1. Its SO slow to load anything - to get to the Main menu takes almost 10 minutes...to load a map - Single player - takes nearly 2 minutes. You can only go away to make coffee so many times
2. It crashes to desktop on boarding the USS Hanibal...no game error message but XP send error report does come up. I have the qconsole.log file being created and that does not appear to indicate an error occurring.
My computer specs are:
Asus Z92T laptop
Turion TL52 CPU
Gfx Go7600 dedicated 256MB
AV ZoneAlarm (full)
Once a map is loaded it plays smoothly with NO issues - great fun to play.
Any pointers/help appreciated...
Adding +disconnect to game shortcut has reduced the load time to the main menu to about 2 minutes.
