Remember this game?
If you do, you probably know exactly how much of a pain in the behind it can be sometimes. Even back when the game was released you had to be the luckiest person in the world to have it working properly out of the box. You always had to have the right gfx drivers, the right version of DirectX and so on, or the game would glitch, shut down, fail to start or what have you.
So yeah... it's 12 years later and I'm struggling to get my nostalgia shot I want so badly.
The game actually starts up ok, there are no distortions in the menu (which is actually weird since I hear that most people get a horrible glitchy mess in the menu on new systems), but it lags horribly. I mean really, really badly. My guess it's about 5 FPS. It continues to lag like that even when you start the game and leave the menu.
Setting the compatibility to Windows 98 didn't change anything except with that setting you get to see the intro movie when the game starts up.
I'm running Windows 7 SP1 x64 and my system specs are:
Motherboard: Asus M3N78-VM
GFX: GeForce 9800 GT
Ram: 4GB DDR2 CL5 GoodRam
Soundcard (in case it matters): Asus Xonar DX 7.1 PCI-E
Any help would be appreciated.
