I can't launch ioquake3!

When I launch the game, it simply crashes with “quake3.exe has stopped working”. Quake 1.32c works fine however, but ioQuake3 refuses to launch. Any help?

If you rename ioquake3.x86.exe to “quake3.exe” it may crash due to your OpenGL driver’s hacks for “quake3.exe”.

If I remember correctly the specific cause of the crash is ioquake3’s new opengl2 render not properly handling missing opengl extensions. Though, it may not be possible for it to operate as intended under the driver limitations when running as “quake3.exe”.
