Black Hawk Down game and XP

  Agent Smith 20:01 19 Aug 2003

I've just upgraded to XP Home and now find the the above game does not run anymore. \it starts to load the first chapter and then shuts down the PC after it's loaded about 10%.
Win XP, Athlon XP1700+, Shuttle AK32 MoBo, 512 DDR, ATI 9000 Pro 128Meg. Patch downloaded. No response from Novalogic as yet. Any ideas please.

my housemate has a very similar problem with the same game so I would be interested in any solutions to this problem too.

He installed and played Black Hawk Down fine with windows 98 but then upgraded to XP and now the game doesn't work. It tells him that his graphics card is not capable of running the game even though it is the same card as before and has the latest XP drivers installed.

The card is a Saphire Radion, ATI, 9000 Pro, 128MB.

Not an ATI player, but upgrade to the latest drivers.

I have this game, running it on Xp home, with a Nvidia Geforce3 64mb. It works fine. I would do what Powerless says. Update Ur drivers.

Running 'dxdiag' worked on my friends computer. dxdiag reported no problems and all tests passed but the game worked afterwards anyway! Strange but true.

Works fine on XP Home,have a laptop that comes with XP Home already installed but game works fine. Would suggest updating graphic drivers and using the updater that comes with the game.
