    Hey im new to this forum, so fujism firstly! :D

    ok, now my problem, i have recently gotten copies of Medal Of honour: AA and Jedi Knight II outcast. Problem is with both games whenever i try to start a new game it loads a piece of the level and then just freezes, no error, it just stops responding.

    I have the the latest Direct X, video drivers etc, i have a GEFORCE 2 Mx 400, 512 RAM, PIII 600.

    Ne ideas??

    Thanx

    When I first started using XP I had to download new drivers for the ge force video card. Check out their site and make sure you have the newest driver. I'm not sure if that is you problem but it solved my problem which sounds the same to yours.

    I recommend you run dxdiag and post the results here so we can take a look..

    start > run > dxdiag (save results to txt file, copy and paste results here)

    You could try going into your bios and dropping your AGP slot to X2 from X4. This solved all my games problems

    try this

    in jk2 download the 1.04 patch, in AA(i dont have that 1), chek the site for patches,

    and finally download the new detonator xp drivers

    Both of those games also have a "safe mode". You may want to try starting them that way and backing down the rendering properties. (provided you get in the game)
    Medal of Honor also has an "auto configure". Perhaps using that prior to starting the game will resolve the "freezing" issue.
    If you actually get into the game(s) and get the chance, I would start very low on graphics and slowly bump my way up. I've got an old PII 400Mhz here running XP with a radeon 7000 and it runs JK2. It ain't pretty, (about 12fps, ACK!), but it loads and plays.
