Messing with the resolution
I messed up. I was messing with the resolution ingame and now cannot open QUAKELIVE. I get this error message.
** GLW_CreateWindow: could not register window class
Please report the the problem you encountered on the Quake Live forums.
You must reload the web page to make this display go away.
Ive turned off computer and went back and it still says that.
Any help would be great.
You can create a text file in \id Software\quakelive\home\baseq3\ , name it "autoexec.cfg" and write "r_mode -2" (without the quotes) in it. When QL will load (the game itself, not the website), it should read the file and execute whatever command you put in there. "r_mode -2" will use your default resolution. You can delete the file afterwards.
If you don't like this, you can reset your settings (ALL of them) from the website (Settings -> Game Settings -> Reset all settings to default (or something like that)).
Or just go windowed, by changing r_fullscreen to 0 in repconfig.cfg and/or qzconfig.cfg
Then when the game loads in a window you can set whatever fullscreen resolution you like, ideally something your display supports.
r_mode -2 should always load though of course.
Also here's the 'fix page' for that error: http://www.quakelive.com/forum/showt...tries-to-start
