I had some recent pickups including Earthwom Jim, and Peter Jackson's King Kong which i had no idea came out for PC in a big box. I tried to play it last night by for some reason my XP machine is having issues for the first time ever.

If you installed King Kong in your PC, maybe that's the root of the problems? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-wyIalhdPU

No , that wasnt the issue. FOr some reason, my display drivers were uninstalled... No idea why. I reinstalled them and most stuff works . The only game not working seems to be Stubbs the Zombie. Starts up but crashes or even laods the game but missing somegraphics like my character model. Though previously it wouldnt even start up so this is a start in the right direction.

I have Beach Head 2002 in big box, but I had to have this small box when I saw it. The cashier even gave it to me for free since the disc was missing.
