I would really like some help, this one is really weird.
I recently upgraded my computer and was running Win2k SP4. Urban Terror was running perfectly.

Then I installed XP SP1a and now UrT crashes as soon as I fire a weapon or jump or basically do anything other than walk. This happens online or offline. Most confusing of all is that vanilla Quake3 runs perfectly.

When UrT crashes it gives the standard 'q3.exe had a problem and has to close' blah blah msg.

This is mentioned briefly on the UrT forums but no real solution found. Has anyone else experienced this and found a fix?
This is my favorite mod and I'd be quite bummed if I couldn't play it anymore.

System specs:
Asus P4C800-E
P4 2.8C
2x512 OCD EL PC3500
WinXP SP1a / DX 9.0b
9800 Pro / Cat 3.6

always better to format, upgrading causes problems.

Well that's what I meant. I never overlay one OS over another. I always format and start fresh. Anywho, I believe I have a handle on the problem now, appeared to be some bizarre punkbuster issue.
