have you done a clean install of XP-SP1 ??
if so the problem is that M$ removed this codec from XP-SP1
& now wants you to buy the current Indeo codec from
http://indeo.ligos.com.

if you dont fancy paying for the the codec
your gonna have to do a repair install with the original XP CD
then upgrade to SP1 this way you'll keep the codec & Mafia will work fine.

:cool:

A friend of mine had that problem but just alt-tabed back in to the program and it worked, all it missed was the first video with the guy and the tattoo

Yeah it is a dirty trick

I was well fuming when I found out

I thought an upgrade was to add things not take them away

GGGRRRRRR !!!!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
