I installed Q4 DVD edition but I never beat Q2, so I'm doing that now so I get a better perspective on the Q4 storyline. It comes with the DVD edition. Anyways, the game crashes to my desktop when I go underwater in the game. WTF? Do I need to patch the game? I thought it would be patched already. I patched Q4 with the 1.04 patch.
Win2k SP 4, AMD 2.8 running at 2.2 ghz, Corsair PC3200 1 gig memory, 110 gig Western Digital IDE drive [32 gig left]. Nothing running in background, IE Torrents, AIM, Xfire, etc.
Please help, I really want to play and beat Q2 before I play Q4.

EDIT: I just installed the Q2 3.20 patch. No change to the crashing when I go underwater!
Sorry to bump, but please? Someone?
Updated vid AND sound drivers intalled?
Hmmmm. This used to happen to be when I played a game called BLOOD, and it was the audio drivers/card that was the problem. Let me dig a little. What card you have?
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro XT 256 mb. I have 5.8 catalyst drivers installed. I've not updated to drivers 5.11 because my problem doesn't show up on the list of things 'I should update for.' Thank you so much so far for your help. I really want to play and beat Q2. [I've still not played Q4! And I won't, until I beat Q2.]
What sound card and drivers do you have? I would update to latest ATI drivers for your vid, couldn't hurt.
I'm too cool to Post

I dont think its the hardware. Couse i have the same problem. As soon as i hit water the game crashes. And i have a AMD 2x 4800 with a 7800GTX soundblaster audigy 2 with the latest drivers. Thats nothing like his configuration. But still we share the same problem. I tried updating the game too, no changes.
