Running this on the family office computer, it's a pretty standard one and not meant for gaming, but old games like this run fine (usually).

The game crashes 1-3 minutes into the tutorial, or instantly on the first mission, and I don't know what to do. A patch I dowloaded doesn't sem to work, and I don't know if this computer has dual processors, which apparently causes problems with this game.

Has anyone found a simple fix?

Very simple fix, if it's the problem I think it is. It all depends on if you're using a multicore computer (which many are these days).

Press alt + ctrl + del, go to the process of the game, right click on it, click on set affinity, then unselect all the processors except for a single one of your choosing. It is important that you do this before loading a game, so do it when the game is on the main menu. Once you do that the game should run smoothly.

You need to do this every time you run the game.

That seems to have fixed it, thanks.
