Intro screen comes up then crashes to desktop. See sig for system specs. Running nglide makes no difference
so maybe switch to direct3d? Got it running in win98 however had to lower desktop rez to 800 x 600.

Haven't tried any patches yet. The main one seems to be more for multi-player enhancements. One
patch for D3D states for modern operating system so left that one alone. This game must be pretty
obscure, not a lot of posts here on it.

IIRC this game needs the IgnoreException ACT fix for WinXP.

I tried all the patches to no avail. So lacking patience went ahead and installed the GOG version, it runs no problem.
