My setup is,
1. operating system XP servivice pack2
2. processor AMD Athon 2.6
3. graphics Geforce 3 ti500 with latest driver
4. 512 ram.
can anyone tell me what could be wrong and how to correct it.
Ps it is the computer because It happens with other games.

Are you using onboard sound or a separate sound card? Do you have the latest version of DirectX installed?

thanks for your reply I have got the latest DX
and I have a separate sound card

What make/model card is it? Have you got the latest drivers for the sound card? When I have had problems with games freezing in the past, it has been a sound card problem.

Try going to START RUN and typr DXDIAG and see if that comes up with anything. If all appears well and there is no problem with any other game then I would suggest changing the graphics card drivers and see if that helps. You can download the Omega drivers from here click here ot there is a new Nvidia driver, just out end of November click here
