i had the game running on my old comp, using the same vodeo card, so i dont think thats the problem. it only crashes when i go to start ANY game using direct x and open gl, using any resolution. it crashes to desktop as soon as i click "play." i cant get this game to work, can anyone help me? pleeeeeeeese??

the problem is XP
in my case it does work in d3d, but if I go from playing the game back to main menu, returning to game results in black screen, so the game has to be restarted
quick-save doesnt leed you to main menu if you are in single player mode, so the game is still playable, but only just

but it worked perfectly on my old comp, aa at 6X af at 16X and 100 fps. and it had the same version of xp as on this comp, i can get it to run in software mode, but that looks like ***... does the compatibility modes really work?? i guess il try that next...

have you updated to the latest version? If you're running the basic 188.8.131.52 it won't work in XP
I'm running 184.108.40.206 in XP in D3D and it's fine, I don't think it's even in compatiblity mode.
Having said that I did get "stuck" in the lift at the end of 'We've got hostiles' - managed to get around it by switching to software mode until I was out of the lift, then back into D3D - worth knowing in case you get the same problem
