Q3 point release problem

Hi, I've been trying to get the Q3 1.32 point release for OS X running, and have encountered a problem. On startup, after the id logo a blank white screen appears. Most keys generate an alert sound and enter exits back to the desktop, which suggests that perhaps an alert is being displayed but is not visible due to being in fullscreen mode. A google search turned up several mentions of this problem and of a possibly related error, 'User Interface is version 3, expected 6', but no definite solutions. A list of the things I've tried would make for a fairly long post, but I'll be happy to provide more info if necessary. Meanwhile here are a couple points of interest. My actual motivation here is compiling the Q3 source code; I've done this successfully, but the resulting application exhibits the aforementioned 'white screen' behavior. Since the regular 1.32 point release does the same thing, I'm guessing it's not an issue with Xcode or gcc, but rather something more general. Also, I've tried it on two systems, OS X 10.4 with an ATI Rage 128, and OS X 10.4.3 with a GeForce2 TwinView. It works on the older system, but on the newer system the 'white screen' error occurs. Any suggestions or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

it might be useful to post a log of the output the executable produces - it might give an indication of what's wrong.

Sure. It's a bit verbose, but here it is:

Quake3 G4 (Application) has exited with status 0.


The most suspicious thing seems to be the aforementioned 'User Interface' error, which pops up twice, including at the very end right before shutdown.

Here's the solution, for anyone who comes across this thread in the future. Although the 1.32 installer puts the new pak files in Applications/Quake3/baseq3, in 10.4.3 at least the Q3 application actually looks for them in /Users/.../Library/Application Support/Quake3/baseq3. Moving the pak files to the latter location fixed the problem.
