Hey guys. I know that Eidos pretty much guarantees that this game won't run in XP but I've had mixed success. I used to run a GeForce 2 card in my system and have since then upgraded to a GF4 and now to a GF FX 5950. When running the GF2 I could get the game to load fine and play the first level for about ten minutes. It would bomb out to the desktop after that. I never tried to get it working with my GF4. Now with the FX card I am getting a very specific error that "might" be fixable. I just thought I would throw this one out there and let you guys have at it. I can get the main menu and even play the cutscenes but when the levelt tries to load I get this error in a little pop-up window:
"ERROR: Direct3D driver does not accurately report texture memory useage. Contact your video card manufacturer for driver updates"
If I could somehow install a differrent driver or tweak DX9 a little bit to circumvent this error then I might get the game to run. Also, if I could somehow get the game to let me use Glide and a Glide wrapper then the issue would be moot. I've already tried Openglide and dgVoodoo and neither will make the game recognize glide/3dfx support. If anybody has any suggestions, please post them here. Thanks.
