  1. I have problems running Quake2 under XP.
    The game seems to be running fine.... then it'll just hang up
    the PC. and I'm forced to reboot.
    Sometimes the sound will just stop and the game continues as if
    there is nothing wrong (without sound).
    It does one of these two things.... never both at the same time.
    Hell sometimes you can play for an hour without a hitch, sometimes
    it locks up (or the sound goes) after a few minutes.

    Everything worked fine under W2K..... damned XP!! ;)

    Thanks, yes I have.... it's been out for a while. I think
    the issues may relate to my MX300 soundcard... I'll try and
    swap it out over the weekend and see if it helps.
    I have a spare Live! value laying around.

    Hey guys I am new here. I want some help to install quake 2 on xp system. It says "The version of Quake II will not install on this language version of Windows 95/NT. To find out if a version is localized for your operating system is availble for purchase, please contact your local Activision office." I tried changing compatibility from the properties of the exe file but its no use. Please I need some help!

    Sorry this is a new one on me, although I am surprised, i didnt think there was an older version
    of Q2 than mine... mine installs fine on XP SP2.
