Hi all,

After a lengthy absence I've had a hankering for old skool and decided to play through Q2 SP.  Using the awesome R1Q2 client, I've gotten to a point that I can't seem to get past.  It's at the end of The Big Gun.  As soon as I finish that level R1Q2 crashes.  Unfortunately on Vista I can't get any other client to run either - so I seem to be stuck.

I'm running this on a decent-powered laptop, Vista 32-bit with an NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M graphic adapter.  Running in Default openGL video mode (nothing else really works).

The error dialog stats this:

Z_FreeTagsGame:  Game DLL corrupted a memory block of size 1 at 0x02D47A64 (allocated 55468 ms ago from code 0x20011DC3)

Anyone seen this before?

Try "set z_buggygame 3" in the console before playing, as the default gamex86.dll contains a buffer overflow bug that this map (amongst others) triggers. z_buggygame will allocate more memory than the game requests. Alternatively you can set z_allowcorruption 1 to suppress the error, but the game may randomly crash at a later point.

Neither of those things worked... anything else I can try?

The other thread didn't help me much...   unless you can provide a download for a recompiled dll.  I'm not going to load Visual Studio or another dev system just for this.  Smiley

Thanks for the download... but now when I try to load my saved game I get the error that the saved game was from a older version.   sad

Guess I have to start over?  Oh well... can't test for a while I guess.

Just wanted to let you know... I did a "gamemap biggun" and went through the level again with the new dll.  The level completed and I was able to continue.

Thanks!
