anyone know how to fix it or whats causing it?
Sounds like your pk3 files are corrupt, try reinstalling.
ive tryed installing it loads of times no luck :(
Question Upon launch of the game I receive the following error: “Couldn't Load Default.cfg”. What do I need to do? Answer If you try to run Return to Castle Wolfenstein and receive the error message, "Couldn't Load default.cfg", the game is basically telling you that it cannot find the \main directory that is part of Return To Castle Wolfenstein. This error commonly occurs when the game is installed with no directory specified. For example, if you choose to install it to a hard drive or partition other than the C: drive (that is, D:,E:, etc.), but fail to specify a folder, the game will install everything to the root of the hard drive and the game will not launch.
If you want to install the game to a hard drive other than the default setting (C:), please make sure you specify a folder when choosing the other drive (i.e.: D:\RTCW).
This can also occur if the game's registry entries have been modified either manually or due to using system restore. If that is the case then you will need to uninstall the game via "add/remove programs" in the control panel. After removing the game then reinstall it to recreate the registry entries.
Mmm, all I have read about this is its usually a corrupt pk3 file, the part above is all I could find on Activision's site.
Nice copy paste there, although as you can see he has installed it to C:\Program Fil....
It is true that one file is missing or corrupted. That would be pak0.pk3.
Reinstalling can be done to fix the problem. That means, uninstalling; then manually remove the RTCW folder; then install again.
It might happen that the cd is dirty or scratched. Copying the contents of the cd to the hard drive and install from there might sometimes work.

That's what I was thinking, though I'm not sure if the uninstall would even finish if the files weren't correctly loaded on to the hard disk. I had a problem similar to this once - used a disc doctor, reinstalled Wolf, and it worked fine.
Though if your disc is in mint condition still... then it's a different problem, of course. :\
What do you mean by “nice copy and paste there” would you care to elaborate ? Are you suggesting that I claim that text as my own ? If so you must have missed “the part above is all I could find on Activision's site” Yes I can see he has installed it to C:\Program Files it states it quite clearly in his post that's why I said “Sounds like your pk3 files are corrupt, try reinstalling”
ratchetclan4, I don't install it to C:\Program Files I install to C:/wolf you could give that a try, it would not harm, but if it is your pk3 files then it wont help.
What your telling me you typed it all? :)
Just saying that the answer of Activision is not the solution. He installed it to the default directory. I also have seen the registry part and that cannot cause it.
I think its obvious to most people that it was cut/paste I'm just curious as to why you felt the need to point it out when I had already said it was from Activision's site, if you feel the part about the registry is wrong contact Activision and inform them, I'm sure they will be grateful.
"Do not say Nice copy paste there when someone says he got it from X site"
Ok, got it. I will not point it out again. I got 90% of my English from movies, games and forums, so sometimes I say stuff like that. Just because I feel typing it to start the post with. It just goes automatically after done thousands of posts.
If your offended by it then I say sorry.
