Hey, im running a brand new copy of jk3 patched to 1.01 and I can run the game fine in JKSP.exe and mp runs but once i go to join a server it gets to The awaiting snapshot part and a windows error, the whole jkmp.exe has encountered an error and needs to close. The ol windows error. Anyone know how i could fix this? Also i have NO mods in my folder.

now thats interesting, ever thought about taking the game back and exchanging it? tho that can be possible in a worst case.
Did you add any extra .pk3 files in your "Base" folder (maps and / or skins)? Have you tryed reinstalling the game? What OS do you have ; XP or Vista? Are you always trying to connect to the same server or have you tryed some other server? Maybe the server you are trying to connect to uses some custom map that you don`t have. I know that this shouldn`t cause such problem , but I wouldn`t be surprised if it does.
oK SO FAR IF I RUN IT ON 800 x 600 resolution itll let me connect but any higher and i get the error, im using xp drivers are fully updated and i had no custom pk3s im goingto try to update windowsx to newest and see if that helps ill keep you posted!

Also, make sure your video drivers are updated. Or see if your computer runs on integrated graphics, in which case you will have no choice but to play JA at 800x600.
ITdoesnt im got the newest cc drivers for my ATI RADEON 9600 and ive run it at full before.
Have you tryed reinstalling the game? Your graphic card is quite old , so you might try using some older version of drivers. Sometimes older drivers work better with some (older) games. Maybe updating BIOS would help. As the last resort , you can formatt the hard drive and do clean OS reinstall. Try other things first.
bios is already updated, ried other versions off ccc trying to reinstall it again and see if that helps but it is a clean os install heh
