It requires Quake 3 version 1.17 and I have upgraded my game from 1.30 to 1.32c. I tried downgrading but when I load the game it crashes. After this I reverted back to using 1.32c.
Would anybody knowledgeable please shed light on the situation?
Or try downgrading to earlier version than 1.17 (maybe aftr releasing THIS version has the lockup appeared). Such as 1.16 or earlier... This would be recommended for all users...

You will require your Q3 CD unless you download a certain file from here: www.planetquake3.n...ak/q3tools.html - which I wont mention the name of, but I am happy to link to due to the age and uselessness of the file beyond running a very out dated version of Q3A.
