    I have warcraft II installed, using windows xp o/s. When I start the game, the intro movie and logo is very "staggered", not running smooth at all. Also the sound is very warbly and crackles alot. Every other game I have runs perfect. My sound card is a creative labs sound blaster live 5.1 and video card is nvidia geforce II mx 400. I recently installed a creative labs driver update from the microsoft website, but unfortunately didn't install the game until after, so I don't know if the driver is problem or not. Has anyone else experienced similar difficulties?

    Try compatability mode. By right clicking the exe file and selecting an OS.

    Has anyone actually got any decent results from using compatability mode? It seems to do nothing when I use it. ??

    Well, I tried all compatibility modes and I seem to have no luck, as Kulasonline says, it doesn't seem to do anything. I can get the game to run, it just sounds scratchy like I'm playing an vinyl record and the video on intro is hesitant.
