have just bought quake4 in the shop, installed it with punkbuster and directx c. but when i start Play Game, the screen turns black for just a second and than i'm out and back in windows. Have installed 2 times, but it is the same. when i looked in the quake4 folder i did see 2 exe files;
when i tried the last one, (Q.Ded.exe) it started to extract all kind of files in a little window (what i am used of ID, was the same with Soldiers of Fortune2), so i thought that i now could get in, gladly! But no, after it has had extracted some files it did shut down, some error occour. have tried that also twice, but the same error i did get. has someone else had this problem, because this is no fun at all!!

PROBLEM SOLVED, only had to download and install OpenAL, (so not Open GL, but AL!). takes just 1 minute to do so, and quake4 runs like it should. ofcourse do you also have to check if you have DirectX C and all the latest video and sound cards, and you need ofcourse the requierments that are set for your hardware, i believe 2 Ghz, 512 Ram and a good videocard, (with OpenAl!!). so just download and install this OpenAl and see if it also works for you!!
