alright guys, here's the deal. hehe.. i really want to play this game, see.. but stuff keeps stopping me!

700mhz athlon
256 megs of ram
40 gig hdd
sb live x-gamer
hercules guillemot geforce 2 gts pro 32 mb

i have the 21.83 detonator for the geforce and the newest sblive driver i can find.. thing is, i load the game, it loads the splash screen, loads for a few seconds, and then i get dumped back to desktop with nothing left running in the system's resources. gr! argh! if anyone has any ideas, i'm all open for them!

I had the same problem. I fixed it by changing the screen resolution to 1024X768.

The game ran FLAWLESSLY after that. Well I had to get my sound working, but that was my own stupid fault. Well actually it was Creative's fault for not updating my system settings. Anyhow, hope this helps you out.

I got lucky, I didn't actually think my monitor would support 1024X768 res!

Try press <Enter> or <Space> at once after launch program. This passes movie and go to Game.

I have the same problem, but nothing I do will work. I have the computer set to the proper res and colour depth, and I hit space and enter as soon as the splash screen comes up, but nothing helps! I also quitted everything.

667mhz celeron
64 mb ram
1g empty hd space
Intel 810e graphics card
