Hello: I installed "Motocross Madness v1.0" motorcycle racing CD onto a WinME system and it worked.
2 weeks later - put in the CD - clicked game START button - hear motorcycle rev-up - then black screen and right back to desktop.
CD-ROM drive is working; 3D acceleration is detected by game installation; DirectX 8.0a is installed; "Motocross Madness v1.0 Trial DEMO" (playable) works on this system right now.
1.) What is happening when a game begins to start-up . . . is the video resolution changing from 800x600 to 640x480 for the 3D effect; is the game searching for the CD in the CD-ROM drive; since it worked before what could be preventing it from starting-up?
2.) Am I supposed to reinstall . . . "DirectX 8.0a; RealPlayer; Quicktime; Windows Media Player" ????
One month with this problem - any help would be greatly appreciated.
