I don't think the WIn98-emulation mode will help...
I've played this game on XP, but with a lot of time spent solving XP-problems.
- First of all, you need to update your XP with all the latest patches and hotfixes.
- Then you need to run in Win98 (or Win2k) mode as "nOOb" suggest.
If you've done this the game should work acceptably. However, the problem with krashes when using the weapons and fire them to frequently is not solved. What I can recall, it was specially ehn I used the machinegun that the game krashed. The only sulotion I've found for this is to try to avoid moving at the same time as you use the weapon...plus that you save frequently during these episodes. If you're lucky, thera aren't that many episodes that this problem occur, you simply have to accept restarting tha game acouple of times during these episodes.
I don't now in which part of the game you are right now, but I'll guess you will find more strange XP-problems (I did). I've solved them though (or managed to fix workarounds
) and played the game to the end.
If you have any more problems, please contact me on the board or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
