"W_LoadWadFile: can't load gfx.wad" how do i fix this?
Logged In: NO
(from www.quakeworld.net) Try reinstalling Quake.
Might be a bad gfx.wad in the PAK0.PAK? I haven't had this
problem yet. (Reply with your system info, and ver. of QF,
so it'll help the devel's..)
chmod -R 777 /myquakeforgefolder/bin
cause the user needs write rights
./qf-client-x11 +set developer 1 >log
you do not heve the id binaries in the right folder
everything has to be written lowcase
Set the path to the pak files correctly in
/etc/quakeforge.conf like :
// Location of shared data
setrom fs_sharepath "/usr/share/games/quake"
For the record, you do NOT need write permissions on the
dir. (if for some reason you do, it's a bug.)
The error refers to the fact that quakeforge is an engine
only, and does not include data files (maps and everything
else,) so it must be told where to find them.
I managed to name the id1 dir id then I got that.
For nuq I had to create the dir $home/.nuq and copy the id1 dir there
