if safe mode works then it must be your gfx card not having a certain feature that is required for the rr/ap tycoon games (e.g. pixel shader 2.0) so try runnin ap tycoon in safe mode it should have one since even older games usually have safe mode. hope this helps, by the way what exactly is your 64mb AGP card in terms of GPU?
