Are there any custom maps for this mod, it's way too short :D. Also do you think you can add the mouse pointing like in Doom 3's Hardqore?

Each time I load it it crashes after getting past the launcher... And if it does work it'll end up showing an error report

It would appear that completing the Bonus Missions (when found) such as Frozen Hate and the Walker Bonus level complete the game prematurely, because rather than return me to the previous map (i.e. Ashes of Hope 3 from Frozen Hate or Iron Blood 2 from Walker), it just displays the endgame screen. My temporary solution to this problem is to create a separate save before entering the Bonus Mission, so I can play it, and then load the save when I complete the Bonus to I can play the game as normal.

You need the 1.4.2 patch, which you can find here: Quake4.filefront.com

Then install the mod, and his little fix, wich you can find here: Quake4.filefront.com

Then you are ready to go :)

Looks like the patch doesn't work. The mod will only load through the mods menu of Quake 4, and then the menu text and cursors are not displayed. The animated background is played, but nothing else happens.

I am using Q4 1.4.2., with the beta and the patch.

Is this working for anyone else?
