    This might be a stupid question, but you did say it's your first game, so... did you copy the game to your hard drive first, or are you trying to run it directly from the DVD?

    Well, that will happen surely if you are using pirated DVD. It has copy protection (just making a guess here)...

    My other guess (which is followed by a stupid question) is wether you are sure that you have the original game disk inserted into your machine.

    My final recommendation is to download the latest patch from Aspyr (if you haven't done that already).

    Finally: If your problem perists, then from the looks of it, the program opens, encounters an error and then closes. OS X keeps logs of these errors which can be viewed by an application called "Concole". Please locate the "Console" application (Applications->Utilities) and open it. Try to find a crash log for Quake 4. When you find it, post it here (Please use code tags in your post when you do it).

    Also, a few more info about your system (exact system version, specific hardware details) would be helpful.
