Just got CFS3 came home and excitedly put the CD into the drive. Selected full install and it detected that I only had DirectX8.1 so it installed 8.2.
The problem is this, whenever the game loads it completely hangs the system, normally this occurs just as it initialises sound before showing the hanger/pilots/aircraft video type screen.
My computer spec is this:
ATI Rage Pro
Soundblaster 64 PCI
Sidewinder Pro 2
Speed Touch USB Modem
I've installed all updates to win2k, updated all drivers etc. There isn't an updated driver for the soundcard so I'm using the Microsoft one that is installed with win2k.
The game does run if I set safe settings! But FS2k2 doesn't have any problems, nor does any other game.
I'm tearing my hair out at the moment and desperately want to shoot some jerries.
