NFS 5
I had the same problem then I changed NFS 5 to Windows 98 compatibility and it works but... its slow. then I found that if I rename the file gimme.dll to gimme.dll.old the problem would disappear and now it runs as fast as in windows 98. U might wanna try that. If it doesnt work just rename it back. Remember to disable the compatibility mode before u do that though.

That game would'nt work on win2000 pro and all I did was go to
my swapfile and change it to 200min and 250max rebooted and
the game worked.

Well, I tried the gimme trick, and it work. Not as smooth as in Win98, but much , much smoother than in compabilitymode.
Next: new driver.
(of course, the one I brought with me from work was corrupt)

I am trying to get NFS3 to work, I have tried all of the compatability modes, and no luck. At best the screen goes blank as if it is going to start then it just drops back to the desktop.
Any ideas

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
