How does your system stack up against the minimum specs needed?

It sounds like a major incompatability, the main program is trying to address resources that don't exist.

hm weird indeed

is it just us? or anyone with the PCWorld Plus disk?

Hi I e-mailed PCWorld inquiring if there was any known problem with the free game on the disk , but haven't heard back as yet.

22-09-2003, 10:38 PM
my game went fine, no problems.

22-09-2003, 11:59 PM
did you notice that your ram is lower than that specified as minimum to actually run the game? Just curious :)

You've updated to the latest video drivers for your card??

Are you running it from the original game cd?? That looks like the kind of error it would give with a bad copy. If you were running off a backup, you should try CloneCd's 'Hide Cdr media'.

kiki, this the Demo from the PCWorld Plus CD.

Yeh i have the latest drivers version 16.055.
