I just bought this game and seem to be having an issue getting it to run. I ran the detection tool and get the "Your system is compliant to all the minimum requirements and the recommended requirement to be able to play the game perfectly." message and all sections have green checkmarks but it is unplayable.
The video runs great at the beginning then, once the game graphics start, I get approx. 1 frame every 5 seconds. If I wait and wait and wait, etc... then turn the sound off then the game runs great but has no sound.
I have tried updating the sound driver and changing random sound settings but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I am using the onboard sound on the motherboard (Realtek). Here is the current audio driver info: Version 184.108.40.20630 Audio controller: HD Audio Audio Codec: ALC861
This is currently the only game that I am having issues with... Any ideas (before I throw the disc in the trash can)?? Is there a patch available for this game?
A few other specs:
- Intel P4 2.8
- 1GB DDR Ram
- 2 x 160GB IDE HD
- ATI Radeon X600 (256 MB)
- Wireless XBOX controller (Intec) - modified/added connector to connect to USB port
- XP Pro SP3
