Have you tried changing your color palette in Display settings to True Color (24 bit)? If not, at least High Color (16 bit)?

2^24 = 16,777,216 colors (24 bit)2^16 = 65,536 colors (16 bit)2^8 = 256 colors (8 bit)2^4 = 16 colors (4 bit)

And if you have to get Q3, get on DC. I hate PC gaming. Hw everything has to be certain requirements. Plus when you add to the fact, that games can crash on PC, #### maybe even crash your comp period, that's another thing I hate.

Edit: Example: I was playing Starcraft: Brood War (only cause my friend made me, I'll take the original anyday), and in mid-game, my comp rebooted, and my primary CD-ROM drive died! Since then, I've had a big issue against BW.

Console gaming rules!

Actually, games can crash on consoles too. They just tend not to because:

1) There's pretty much no chance of running into crappy drivers that don't cooperate with your program.

2) There's pretty much no chance of running into crappy hardware that screws everything up.

3) The console publishers and developers can't just release patches like their PC counterparts, so they tend to get it right the first time...

Now that certain consoles come with a hard drive (that can store more than the game data itself), that might change. ;)

Cloud, I don't see why anyone would want to play Quake 3 for DC...you cant mod them, add maps or skins, etc and UT for DC sucks ! they took out the assualt mode...

are you running in software mode? thats always very grainy. And dont bash Half-Life Skank, the original package might not be that great, but the mod community is awesome (and not just TFC, CS, and DoD). Ever played Action Half-Life (or its AUT counter part?), or Runaway Train, or any of the other TONS of mods? Action Half life is still my favorite FPS (even though its only a mod) on ANY console.

half life and all its mods suck
What an incredibly intelligent, insightful, and qualified statement. I think I'll just delete my HL install right now...

SkankinMonkey's comment rings true. Why do you think they call it CheaterStrike?
