I have had this problem for 2 weeks now and have been sending and receiving email from the game tech support site almost daily, but to date without success - hope you can help?
The game installs ok, and I have even (on occasions - because of numerous uninstalls then reinstalls) allowed the game's directX 8 to be installed although I already have dx9.0a. I have tried launching the game as follows:
1. From the desktop icon
2. From 'Conspiracies' in program menu
3. From Pentium 3 in the program menu and
4. From Pentium 4 in the program menu.
I have a completely up to date WindowsXP(home) with Athlon 3000+ processor, excellent Radeon video card and loads of memory.
Numbers 1 to 3 above launch into a picture of skyscrapers and at the bottom of the page 3 red lines begin to crawl from left to right across the page. However, these lines never get further than 2 inches before stopping! No 4 above just does not work but I'm not surprised as that is for Pentium and I have Athlon. I realise I should launch from the 'Conspiracies' at number 1 above but this will not work.
Perhaps anyone out there who had a similar problem which they resolved would be good enough to point me in the right direction please?
I should finally add that I have other games installed at the moment eg Uru, BS3 and Runaway all of which work without any problems.
Thank you and best wishes
