I have'nt got this game but have you installed any patches for it?


I found this that might help you, just scroll down till you come to
"Things to try" on the left hand side of the page and try the game
advisor just to be sure that your system is ok for the game, let us know
what it tells you.

Have you tried the "Game Advisor" the reason I say this is that I hav
used that when I had my old system and it as great for letting me kno
if my system would have issues or not

Other than that I really don't know mate, I hope someone else may know
don't give up hope though, I wish I could help more really, but I jus
don't own that game anymore, and it makes it hard for me to know wha
else to try......I'm just bumbling around in the dark :

Having looked at your specs again just now, I have only just notice
that you have a 252MB card and the game says 256MB so yes its probabl
your card, I may be wrong though, but please try the Game Advisor, an
if it is your card that will confirm it

I wish you luc

Your welcome, but as a matter of interest what did you do to get it
working? the advisor only advises afterall, so did it suggest an update
or something? I have not had to use that advisor for a good few years
and so I am not sure what it is like now
