2 hours and I still can't get this game to run.

Tried running as admin
running in XP compatibility
recommended (from support) MS hotfix

launch menu loads, click play and get a black screen and 'not responding' in task manager.

Anyone else had this?

EDIT: cpu @ 100% while game hangs.

crap

I can play the fame, but horrible performance on my laptop.
Gotta wait until my new PSU arrives so I can play it on my desktop

That sucks. Could it be Vista 64? It's fine for me on 32.

This is what I'm referring to.
Yep, this is my problem. I just disabled my audio and the game fired right up.

If I find a workaround I'll post it.

No, this is where it will be a pain. The driver installs a Soundmax app that causes hangs with some systems in Vista, so I'm running off vistas drivers - which actually sound pretty good.

I'll have to see if I can get it to install driver only and try that.

This gives a small explanation.

It's the Andreas filtering service that Asus uses for noise reduction. The .exe I found for vista in the latest drivers also installed that, and uninstalling the saoundmax to get rid of it also uninstalled the drivers.

Man, that lunar jeep/truck is crazy to drive. Too bad there is only one speed and jump jets are so limited.
