winquake.exe has stopped working
I received the Quake Steam collection today for my birthday. However, when I launch the original Quake, the game launches for a second and then crashes, telling me that 'winquake.exe has stopped working'. Someone help?

Try launching with -dibonly -startwindowed. Add that to the launch parameters.

Don't use WinQuake. To really play the game these days you need to download one of the other exe versions online. I personally prefer DirectQ http://mhquake.blogspot.co.uk/ which makes the game run properly on modern computers.
