I can't seem to get this game running properly on any of my systems.
I've installed AVP in Windows XP. At first the display was garbled and everything had trails reaching to the top left corner. I found a source code update here but it still isn't working right. First the level descriptions overlap with the difficulty menu, or wind up even lower on the screen so it disappears off the bottom. Second, I noticed during the Marine missions that the briefings which appear on monitors aren't playing leaving just the text from them. No animation or voice.
Next, I tried AVP in VPC 2007 running Windows 98. Apparently the mission loading screen causes it to crashes to desktop. This is after the intro movie. I disable intros in options and it still crashes after the difficulty is selected. I tried different resolutions and color settings with the same result
I then tried AVP in a Windows 98 system. At first I didn't get any display at all and after pressing enter a few times it returned to the desktop. I tried different resolutions and color settings which allowed me to see the opening and menus. Sometimes I could load the missions, others it would crash to desktop. This appears to be random as no combination of settings has worked consistently.
I also tried the source code update but it requires a newer version of Windows than 98. I thought about using the version of Direct X on the disc but it won't let me install that one since the version already installed is newer. Any other ideas?
