Quake is located in a directory with a space in
its name. Rename the Quake directory so that it does not contain a
xcopy32.exe, which is used for copying the files,
cannot be found. This especially happens on Windows NT4/2000/XP. Copy
the file "xcopy.exe", which is located in your <windows>\system32
directory to "xcopy32.exe". QSelect should work now.
The web updater does not work.
All former update sites are down now.
To change the settings to point to the new location,
open qselect.ini with Notepad and look for:
or some similar line if you got another version than
1.51. Now replace the server part (bold):
Change it to:
Now just start QSelect and the Web Updater.
I have an quake version which I once installed with "new / unknown version",
because QSelect didn't support it at that time. Now I got a QSelect update which supports
that version, but it is still listed as "unknown" (or empty infobox).
You need to install that version again. Delete it in the version manager, and install
it again from the list of "known" versions. When prompted, select do not select
"automatic download" and point to the archive on your hard disk instead. QSelect
will now install that version properly and add it to the version control.
I keep getting this error saying it cannot find a .dll "cp3230mt.dll"
I forgot to link all neccessary runtime
libraries to the .exe file, so QSelect will look for this dll instead. If you've
downloaded QSelect after the 20th of August, this error cannot occur anymore.
The version changer doesn't run properly. When the console window opens, it shows
"invalid number of parameters" for a second. QSelect shows that the version has
been changed, but when Quake starts the version is still the same one.
This error only occurs when your Quake 2 direcory name contains a space. Rename your
Quake dir to something that doesn't contain a space.
QSelect 1.0 FAQ (old !)
I've the original version (3.05) of Quake 2 and don't know which patches I need in
order to upgrade to the latest (3.14) version. Do I need to apply all patches up to 3.14
or just this one ?
Take a look at the download page. You'll find all
available patches there.
I'm trying QSelect and wonder why when Quake 2 is up to version 3.14 you chose not to
include it as an install option. I don't even have a version earlier than 3.14 in archive
making QSelect uninstallable for me.
The problem is that if you already have the 3.14 version installed, the old exe and
dll files from 3.05 and 3.10 are no more on your system, thus making it impossible for
QSelect to switch back to those versions. You can never change back to a Quake version
previous to the one you have when installing QSelect. If you still have the original
version, you should re-install Quake 2, then install QSelect and upgrade to 3.14 (your
savegames will probably not be changed, but better make a backup before).
