Not sure how big of a response this will get, this is an old game which may not have been very popular. Basically the game is only capable of loading in software mode at the minimum graphical settings. I cant figure out why but i think it could be due to the graphics card i have. I have an x1650 pro (radeon) and i had the same problem with my old card (x800GT). Could it be a problem simply with radeon cards and the way this game works? Does anyone know of any fixes or patches to fix this issue? Any help would be great, we cant let our old games die!
