This might be a shot in the dark here, but since I have tried just about everywhere else I figured it wouldn't hurt to try. After all, out of the thousands of people that visit these forums there must be someone who knows what I'm talking about... right?
Ok, I recently got Quake III Arena because I heard it was a good game. Allot of the games I like are based off the Quake engine so I figure if all these other companies wanna use their engine then their game must be pretty good.
I have it on my hard drive now but I'm having some problems trying to play it. Whenever I double-click on the Quake icon this dialog box with a Blue background comes up and this big log file is generated inside. After it gets to a certain point the screen goes to a Grey color and then to Black and then back to the desktop and then to Black again and finally back to the desktop where then the log file has a line at the end that says "Q_strncpyz: NULL src". At some point along the way something goes wrong. I then just have to close the window because nothing else happens.
I'm not sure what is causing this but it has me really confused. I've been searching Google and a ton of other places. I read somewhere that it may be the graphics card. It said that I should get the latest version of my graphic card's driver. I'm having some trouble finding it though. I have looked many places.
Is this what is wrong? Is it my graphics card? Or is it something else? I'm really confused right now.
My graphics card is a "Trident Video Accelerator Blade 3D/MVP4" and my computer is a "Compaq Presario 7360".
If someone could shine some light, any light, on whats up here I would GREATLY appreciate it.
P.S. I've attached the full log file so you guys can see the exact error.
