Been away for a while. I am sure there is a post for this issue somewhere in the threads. I Just upgraded the box from Win 7 to Win 10 and R1q2 is pissed. Whats the fix?

Hey Loose!

Sorry for the late reply.
I would recommend a new client! I've been using Q2Pro for 2 years and I think it's graphically superior to R1Q2. It's also quite modern so it should run fine on Windows 10:

http://skuller.net/q2pro/ (client only - put in quake root directory)
http://q2s.tastyspleen.net/ (or downloadable install package)

The neat thing is you can turn up color saturation 3x to give it a visual boost. The textures also look much crisper. Here's a full list of improvements:

Did you have luck with Q2Pro? I too can definitely vouch for it being the best client currently existing for WOD-X! It can take some getting used to, but it's great! Was very glad I made the switch!

Hope you'll be around more as well, things keep getting more interesting in the mod, the new year looks to be a great one for WOD-X!
