Do you have a problem with the text not showing up in the menus?  Are you running XP?

 

I don't think you will need to back up your whole system.

I don't think I have read about anyone that has had any problems with it.  It is a Microsoft patch.  I have XP and I used it without any problems.  ;)

Rudolf i don't think that the link you gave is the right one because the patch mentioned in the readme is

 

"If a Direct3D-Based Screen Saver Is Running (Q306676)"

 

and the one on the link is

 

"Unchecked Buffer in Universal Plug and Play (Q315000)"

 

Anyway the link for the PORTUGUESE version of windows is:

 

http://download.microsoft.com/downloa....PTG.exe

It is just a way to "Bump" the topic back up near the top.  To keep it from falling completely off the page.

No problems installing the patch?  no errors or anything?

 

Try extracting the files from the patch using winzip or winrar, to a folder on your desktop.  Then copy the d3d8.dll file into your windows\system32 folder.

Press "print screen" during play and then ctrl-v in paint. For 125 health you need to find a hooker.
