I have installed the game demos from the free CD of the April PC World. One game is Colin Mcrea Rally I believe. I starts alright, I can choose my options - track, nationality, car etc, but when it comes the screen when I am just about to start racing, it suddenly crashes. Has anyone else experienced this proble,?
And with the Unreal Tournament demo, I can't choose single player, so I have no way of playing this demo, I believe, or is there another way?
I run Win XP so there shouldn't be any problems right?

Offhand i do think i remember the ut2004 demo was started by another option further down the list then single player,it has no single player element but rather the option to play the multiplayer maps against bots.

Just try whats available and see if you can get into a game,if not post back and ill install it and have a look.

as for CM4,could be anything from a bad install to a driver conflict.

I would

-Install the latest version of dx
-install latest video card drivers
-Install latest chipset drivers
-Reinstall the demo
-Not worry about it,CM4 sufers from consoleitis.
