I have MS Plus for XP and am unable to get the Hyperbowl game to work. It starts up then promptly sends me back to the desktop..without actually running.

I've the latest Nvidia drivers for my card and I have the CL Audigy soundcard.

any ideas are greatly appreciated.

It begs the question.... Why MS is charging $40 Cdn for something that's basically equivalent to a sampler CD?


...because there are suckers like me around willing to buy anything with a MS logo on it? Yes!

Fall for it once ...shame on MS ...Fall for it twice ...shame on me.

I noticed that you also have to pay to get extra fish for the aquarium screensaver...unbelievable, when you think about it. I figured that these virtual fish cost more than the real thing.

I totally agree. The plus! pack is a rip off this time around.

Your issue with Hyperbowl crashing is related to you nVidia drivers. Plus hyperbowl and the fish screen saver seem to be the best program to run to duplicate the crash that happens with nVidia cards/drivers and XP. The is still no real solutin available just some changes that can be made to lessen the problem.

What worked best for me was to turn off sideband addressing and fastwrites also set AGP appature to 64 or less.

I also heard that using any theme other than the default XP theme style seemes to help.

Good Luck

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

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!
