Cry

It's bugging me as the game (and others) all worked fine then stopped,
I had not installed anything else ! ! !

Honest

I have :
flattened the hard drive and reinstalled XP,
Updated the BIOS
got the latest direct x 9.0b (or which eva it is)
got the latest upgrade video drivers,
Ran a registry clean up tool called detonator
bought a new copy of the game
bought a different game
took the video card out and ran it on another machine (it was fine)
ran the game on another machine (fine)
ran the game on my m/c but with a different video card (didn't work)
phoned the HP help desk for an hour
phoned the game help desk twice for an hour each time
I have anti-virus softwared the m/c to bits.

I would buy a new m/c but this one is only 14 months old

PLEASE HELP

SUP,
have you tried to uninstall it and installing it again and if so and nothing has worked then download version 1.3-1.5

hope it works

Have you tried updating your OpenGL client? I had a similar problem with Soldier of Fortune II a while back, my OpenGL kept crashing. I ended up having to search around the nVidia website for a while and downloaded the updated drive and the OpenGL patch that fixed it for me.

Here's a link to the OpenGL Installation FAQ.

Here's the link to the nVidia drivers, ipam45 - nVidia Drivers. Try downloading the latest driver for your video card and see if that helps at all.
