    You need to do this.....

    You need to change a dll do the following go into C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\MOHAA and removed 3dfxgl.dll and in its place copy opengl32.dll. You can find a copy of this in C:\Windows\system32 or C:\Winnt\system32.

    Or try this link for another solution if mine does not work,can you get back and say if it fixes it thanks.

    Get a newer driver first that may fix it straight away for you get them from www.guru3d.com then goto the download section and get your vid drivers

    Looking Good

    BonyTony,thanks for reply the other day,me ma's heart surgery went well,on way to recovery,any way back to problem,upgraded drivers and demo loaded up ok,apart from when you click on load demo a network connection box appears,there is advice for that at the mohaa website but have not got round to doing it yet.It looks to be a great game.

    Cheers,
    Mick.

    Using the default opengl drivers that come with XP, games will not run.
    You will need to download newer ones from http://www.nvidia.com or leaks elsewhere ;)
