  1. Can you help, I have been trying to install MOHAA onto my pc again(already played it but want to again), but when the instal gets to 76% finished, a window comes up with an error box that says :-
    File Q:/main/pak2.pk3
    Data error (cyclic redundancy check) .

    Any ideas. cheers

    That indicates either a damaged CD, dirty CD, or a CDROM drive that doesn't read dirty discs well.

    Thanks, I will try it out ASAP. I obviously don't understand computer jargon as well as you.

    Try using a laser cleaner on the drive and see if that fixes it. Or check the CD and make sure there aren't smudges on it, and if there are simply wipe them off, but be careful not to scratch it.

    Sorry for the long delay, but I thought I would try a couple of times, and guess what. The cd lens cleaner didn't work.
    Any other ideas ????

    try disabling antivirus programs when installing

    We had the same problem installing MOHAA (File Q:/main/pak2.pk3) when installing w/out disabling Norton AV and Internet Security. For some reason, Norton IS came back on after only a few minutes, and seems to have caused the problem a second time, even though we disabled it for "1 hour", so keep an eye on it.

    Is anybody having problems with the game freezing up, and then crashing to desktop or restarting? Also, has anybody has the game picture turn to light blue after a few minutes of playing so that you can only see the ground?

    I installed my MOHAA on a computer and now I cant get it off. When I try it prompts a message that says repair, modify, delete. I delete it and it just says maintinance has finished and thats it. If anyone could help that would be awesome. I'm going crazy not being able to play my game. puke: :eek:
