I did an rsync yesterday, it worked fine. I did updated today, and I get a dialog box popping up saying:
quake2world.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022). Click on OK to terminate the application.
Just letting you know..
Over the weekend I committed a rather significant changeset that replaces the Quake2 sound system with SDL_mixer. This required the introduction of several new dependencies (SDL_mixer, vorbis, smpeg, etc..). I'll see if anyone else is seeing this. Is there any info in stdout.txt or stderr.txt?
It's empty, does it log there by default?
Could you try today's build? Are you able to start the game from gdb.exe?
I've been doing an rsync every other day or less with the same error.
I'm a unix junkie, but my gaming PC is my only windows box. Didn't know gdb was of any use in the windows world.
I'm not a C coder, and it doesn't seem like this helps much, so let me know if I'm doing this wrong.

... with my 6 weeks old version of q2w (I was out of town for a while) and got rid of it by deleting the old installation and downloading/installing the latest win32 build. I have no idea why simply running update.bat didn't fix it, tried that many times and nothing happened. But now it works so I don't care too much...
I blew away the q2w dir and did a rsync from scratch.
Awesome. Thanks spirit.
