  Figgis 23:04 09 Jun 2003

Currently running amd athlon 1800xp, 512mb ddrram,gforce4 mx440 graphics,msi kt3ultra mobo, operating system win98se. i am one of those people who still swear by Falcon4 flight sim. Every thing run fine till the end of the mission when the following crash appears DevCreateSurface:Failed to create a front buffer Ec887600d4.
crashes to the desktop leaving black square coveringabout a third of the screen in the top left corner. Have tried cntr,alt,del but locked only way to get any joy is to press reset on the tower.
Anyone got ant ideas what the problem is.

but tech wise, try the newer Nvidia drivers, disable any virus software & Screen savers running or ready to to kick in on a time count.

Most likly that your Grahics card is not up to the job. How many MB's is it and is it DDR memory or SDRAM ?
