Up until recenty I have been playing a game called Virtual Sailor which is a sailing simulator game using DirectX. However since purchasing a new computer running on XP Pro, I have been experiencing problems. The game played perfectly on my old machine running Windows 98SE.
1. Istead of the waves rolling smoothly and the ship riding the waves smothly, it has a jurking effect (like a bounce).
2. Afer a few minutes of play, the computer sometimes freezes and has to be reset.
3. If a new ship is selected, sometimes the computer just resets itself.
After the computer resets, XP wants to send an error report which mentions a driver error but no more details. All my drivers are up to date.
The System requirements for the game are as follows:
Pentium II Windows 98 DirectX8 Sound card 3D graphic accelerator
My PC as follows:
AMD Athlon XP2800+ 1024MB DDR RAM MSI Nforce 2 motherboard 128MB ATI Radeon 9500 19" Mitsubishi Diamond Pro monitor Wndows XP Pro
I have spoken to other users on the game forum who have similar computers and they do not experience any problems. The game maker is unable to help and says it must be a driver error.
