I was downtown this evening, and I wound up buying a used PC game to sort of cheer myself up a little bit.
Alas, when I got it home and eagerly installed it, I found that it crashes as soon as the game starts. Apparently it’s an issue with my specific video card. (Radeon)
I have tried installing it and running it in compatibility mode for both win95 and win 98. (I have XP. The game disk I have says “copyright 1997.”)
I have tried disabling write combining, and disabling direct draw & direct 3d.
Same thing happens every time. Dang it! Does anyone have the definitive workaround? Thanks so much!
