there is a patch that you might need. I can get it to you when I get off work. There were some instructions for it but I didn't have to follow them. All I did was run the installer for the patch and it worked with no problem.
It's been a while now, but I have some vague memory of downloading and installing a patch - which is why the game was able to load. I had to tweak it to install it (basically involved copying my discs to a folder, renaming a file, and some other stuff), and then I believe I had to patch it to get it to even load. I'm not positive on that tho. I just figured it was because I'm on Windows 8, and there's something different about how the game works on 7 vs. 8.
sucks man. Yeah I have windows 7 --- See The Game Collection http://www.gamespot.com/users/nights_team2k7/games_table?mode=own
