i say go ahead and play it and hope you won't have problems. you "might" not.
if you do, make sure your video drivers and via 4in1's are up to date... and if you still have problems, you're gonna have to wait for a patch. or contact westwood/ea and try to see if you can return it because of your issue, which is more their fault than yours.
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
