I have used Software mode all my life for Quake 2, and now I am returning after a 2 year hiatus. I had to downloaded R1Q2/anticheat for the ACME Ctf Server, but everytime I switch to software mode, the game crashes. I can't play on the better graphics modes because I'm not used to it. How do I get it to stop crashing when I use software mode?

Software mode is unreliable, that's pretty much all there is to it. Make sure you don't have any high resolution texture or model paks installed as software mode hates those in particular. You should try using R1GL and then adjusting the settings, you can make it look pretty much identical to software mode with the following:

Code:
set gl_coloredlightmaps 0
set gl_texturemode GL_NEAREST
vid_restart
