    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 1.0.0.5 it won't work in XP

    I'm running 1.1.1.0 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
