(we had contact a while ago in the Reforged thread because of spinning models issue)
Until now we managed to make it work for everyone.
OoPpEe and I will try hard to help you too
As you already mentioned, you made clean installs (with no other pk3īs or extra folders) already and used different DP builds ...
Usually the next thing I always recommend is using my config.cfg
Suprisingly in many cases it helps. (dont ask me why)
Maybe you give it a try too.
You extracted the .zip it with winzip, right ?
And put only the ID1.pk3 into your folder:
One more idea:
Please try the CLASSIC pack (link is in 1st post too).
This one has no shaders, so we can see if that is your problem.
Put the id1.pk3 from the classic
-pack.zip into your folder:
(of course dont use the shader-pack simultaneously then)
Always start Quake via "darkplaces.exe" (which is in your Quake folder directly
shortcut or batch file or extensions (like -dpmod) or something.
Thatīs all I can think of at the moment.
Please reply and tell us your progress.
