Errors

Hi,

I’ve been trying to play the demo, however I keep getting errors.

Errors:

I was able to play the demo fine before I upgraded my computer (replaced motherboard, added memory and graphics card)

Cliffski will be on holiday for a few more days. I’m sure when he see’s this he’ll be able to help.

Nevermind, I found that running it in compatability mode fo Windows 98 solved the problem.

Thats good news. It was sound card driver related, by the looks of it.
