and then it wont let me play so whats my problem and how can i fix it?
I have the same problem!!!?

I have the same problem,and I don't know what to do to fix the problem. I'm very nervous and if you know how can i fix it please send me mail to my email adress:
Maybe I'll have a suprise for you.

I had pretty much the same problem the other day. All I did was reinstall my video card drivers, and that fixed the problem.

TS Special Forces
Could you enter your info in your profile please? If you have an ATI card and are using Catalyst 3.9 some people are experiencing this problem with all Quake III engines - which includes MoH. 3.8 and 3.10 do not have this problem afaik.
Trouble Installing

While Installing On Disk 2. The File Pak2.pk3 when i'm about 80% done overall it causes a component transfer error... says date files completed but file Pak2.pk3 either couldn't be done because of I/O hardware error. or says something about cyclic redundancy check. any help will be appreciated. thanks.
I had to uninstall MOHAA due to corrupt data. Now when I trie to install MOHAA it brings up Install Shield Wizard. the program gives me three choices:
Modify-Select componants to install (these are componants that have nothing to do with the accual game).
Repair-Reinstall componants installed in the previous setup (these are the same useless componants as the firt option).
Uninstall-completely remove the game and all its componants.
Please help me! :(
It seems that a bunch of ppl are havin that problem too. Not too long ago I tried to install it again and in the add/remove programs chart it says it's there. So, I click on change/remove and the same three options come up~Modify, Repair, and Remove. I've tried all three opts. several times and still git nothin. I've reinstalled it and it doesn't install the game. I'm VERY frustrated any help appreciated, thanks. ~P.S.-I'm very dumb with computers lol-~
try this

if your driver is the correct one and if the file opengl32.dll in in the windows\system32 dir.
go to gme dir and move the file opengl32.dll from thi directory
run the game.

Hey guys,
MOHAA (.. and Spearhead) both have bugs with the OpenGL string that can cause them to crash on ATI videocards with certain driver revisions. It's not really an ATI bug, but a bug in the game as it can't handle a string of a certain size being returned by the drivers... and ATI fills it to it's fullest string (all other OpenGL games are fine with this).

I'm not 100% sure if it's been fixed yet by ATI, but there is a work-around that also is a good thing to try regardless.

The older, 4.12 OpenGL file from ATI yields some of the best performance in this game.. and OpenGL allows you to selectively place a file in the game directory so as this particular game will override the system OpenGL and use this one.

I've zipped up the 4.12 OpenGL file here:

You can unzip this and place it in the same folder as the the MOHAA executable and the game *should* work if you are indeed experiencing the OpenGL initialization issue. This should also work for both MOHAA and MOHAA:Spearhead (full game and demos).


Good luck and hope this helps! PLEASE REMEMBER you put this file in the game folder for future reference. If you upgrade drivers down the road, it may be incompatible with future drivers (but still works now even up to the 5.13 Catalyst drivers). You'll need to delete it if newer drivers render it obsolete.

PS- this mini OpenGL also works best for older OpenGL games like Quake, Quake2 and the like. It's the pre-OpenGL 2.0 DLL, so it does NOT support newer OpenGL games very well. If you still play games like Quake2 or Q2 engine games (or possibly even CounterStrike V1.6, NOT CS:SOURCE), placing this DLL in the game folder should yield much better performance as well.
