 The game still installs well even under Windows 10 (2019-03). The only drawback is the not startable ''​setup.exe''​ file, when running a 64 bit version of Windows. In this case simply use the file ''​Quake3\Setup.exe''​ from the CD. It works just fine. The game still installs well even under Windows 10 (2019-03).

 In case you still have problems, you may always fall back to simply copying the required files. The only really required files are ''​quake3.exe''​ and ''​baseq3\pak0.pk3''​. They can be found in the folder ''​Quake3''​. In case you still have problems, you may always fall back to simply copying the required files.

-The game engine does offer a rather limited set of graphics resolutions. Especially the wide screen resolutions are only a few. This however, only goes for the presented resolutions in the game menu. Actually the engine does provide all available resolutions of your graphics card. How you can make use of them is described in the article [[Q3A Graphics Hack]]. These steps also work for most of the other Quake 3 based games.+The game engine does offer a rather limited set of graphics resolutions. Especially the wide screen resolutions are only a few.
