original delboy

Hi peeps got myself a copy of this wiked game! my problem was that when i installed the game and tried to play it...it was like
you are playing in the middle of the worst fog black out :mad:

I then followed this guide which i found that had been posted,

right click on Desktop
Left Click on Properties
Select Settings Tab
Select Advanced Properties
Select GeForce Tab
Select Additional Properties
Select Direct3D Setting Tab
Tick "Enable Fog Table Emulation"
Select Apply
OK then exit

OK have done this and this was solved..i could clearly see things now! but when i was controlling the person right at the begining where you got get in the car...it was like if i was moving in slow motion....what else could i do...any suggestions woould be much appreciated!

Well i got 2 problems

I got two problems, the two apply to my computer and only one applies to my laptop! the first is that on my pc i have a voodoo5 card and i thought that it wouldnt work that great like it did, but i saw someone post o gta3forums.com that his worked fine! adn the other problem that i get on both my pc and laptop is the unhandled exception error, but its not the same one that take2games has on the support website the address is different!
