Odd start up PC problem


Jive

Recommended Posts

When I went to start up SA, the intro and everything loads, even the load screen. But once it's about to bring up the main menu, the game just crashes. I've tried many times, all with the same outcome.

 

This is a store bought copy, and I even tried to install the v1.01 patch, but it said "old file not found", even though i directed it to the correct folder.

 

Other things I've tried include:

- Updating the driver to my ancient video card.

- Running it in Win98/ME compatibility mode.

- Installing the Windows security hotfix update thing, that I saw in another topic.

 

I could post the error report here, if anyone thinks it could help...

 

My system (which should be the minimum requirements) is:

Windows XP Pro SP2

Radeon 7000 64MB video card

AMD Athlon

1.15 GHz

256MB Ram

 

 

Any help would be greatly appreaciated, thanks.

The patch isn't working possibly because you have version 2, and yeah if you are having problems with that computer some new hardware is probably the only way you are going to get anywhere.

But shouldn't it work with the minimum system requirements? I have those though...

Guess I'll have to look into some upgrades, haha.

 

What did you mean by "version 2"?

 

It's a little disenchanting that it doesn't work, especically when I meet the minimum requirements.... Oh well.

 

So we all believe it's a hardware issue eh? I use to have Vice City on here, and it ran without any problems...

Not really. Any game will be tough to run if you only just scrape the minimum requirements.

 

Also, version two is the second release of SA - the one without access to the hidden sex scenes as revealed in PatrickW's Hot Coffee modification. Indeed, it prevents any modifications whatsoever.
