A Floating Point Error may occur on Day 3 after Drew has returned to his
quarters. The information below only applies when you are getting a

occurs because there is a file missing on the QGate CD. When QGate tries
to load the missing file on most computers, it will simply skip past the
file; however, on some computers, a Floating Point Error will occur. To
get around the problem, a "dummy" file can be copied to the hard drive.
When QGate attempts to load the missing file, it will instead find the
dummy file on the hard drive and no Floating Point Error will occur:
- On your hard drive, there should be a QGate\Content directory.
Open this directory. Within the Content directory, create a subdirectory
and input "Jenny" as the name of the subdirectory.
- Now, from the Quantum Gate CD, find the file
Content\Endgame\Jennyltr.mov. Copy this file into the Jenny directory you

- On your hard drive, you should now have the file
QGate\Content\Jenny\Jennyltr.mov. Rename this file from Jennyltr.mov to
- To test whether the problem has been fixed, start Quantum Gate
and go to the Contents menu. From the Day III menu, select "Return To
Quarters." After you see the movie clip of Drew returning to his
quarters, you should see a movie clip of Jenny in the lower right hand
corner. This is the "dummy" file that you copied to your hard drive. You
may right click past this movie clip and continue on with the story.
