anyone else finding that these games crash when run under WinXP home. Mine do, they just freeze up the machine, with this static moise coming through the speakers. I have all the latest drivers and patches for the games, well except for SOF2 demo and it's not as if I'm running the software on a "slow" machine either.

Specs:
Athalon XP 1600
Windows XP Home
512 MB SDRAM
40GB 7200 RPM HDD
Inno3D GeForce 3 Ti500 64MB GFX running on 28.32 Det Drivers
Sound Blaster Live! Player 5.1
10/100 Ethernet Adapter

I have this machine networked with another could that have any influence on the problem

Thanks in advance

You might try a couple of things in the Bios. #1 Turn of AGP fast writes and #2 try setting your AGP speed to 2X (this is assuming your BIOS has bothof these options). I had a lot of trouble with this in XP with Nvidia cards. when using a VIA CHipset.

I agree the temp of your PC is somthing to check. The OS should be fine you could try changing the compatabiltiy of the games to windows 2000 or 98! Useing the right click properties option and choosing compatabilty

DO NOT CHANGE YOUR BIOS AGP SETTINGS AS IT WILL SERIOUSLY HINDER YOUR FPS OUTPUT. A 4XAGP CARD LIKE THE GF3 NEEDS THE BIOS TO BE SET TOO 4X IF IT IS NOT SET TO 4X YOU ARE RESTRICTING THE AMOUT OF DATA IT CAN SEND/RECIEVE. FAST WRITE SHOULD BE ON BUT THIS IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS KEEPING THE 4X BIOS CONTROL ON.

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
