Troubleshooting / Common Errors

Hard crashes

Quake returns to the operating system with an error message.

  • Hunc_Alloc: Failed on ####### bytes*

The game does not have enough memory allocated to load the map. This usually happens with very large maps. To be able to load it, the memory heap has to be increased manually by using the -heapsize # command line parameter when starting the game. For example: glquake.exe -heapsize 64000.

Soft crashes

Quake drops to the console with an error message.
