The installer for ioquake3 1.36 works, it says it installed, but even after copying the pak0 and pak1 files from my Q3A disc, it will not let me install the point release, it says “You need to install the ioquake3 engine first.”. I can’t even use the engine to play Q3A by itself, as I get this error logged to my clilpboard:
ioq3 1.36 win_mingw-x86 Apr 12 2009
----- FS_Startup -----
Current search path:
C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\ioquake3\baseq3\pak1.pk3 (7 files)
C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\ioquake3\baseq3\pak0.pk3 (3539 files)
3546 files in pk3 files
WARNING: pak1.pk3 is present but its checksum (880411042)
is not correct. Please re-install the point release
Point Release files are missing. Please
re-install the 1.32 point release.
Also check that your Q3 executable is in
the correct place and that every file
in the baseq3 directory is present and readable.
But I can’t install the point release because it wants me to install the engine, which I’ve already done. I’ve installed this on this same system before, so I don’t know why it’s doing this this time, and I’m at a loss what to do.
