Asus A7n8x w/ 1GiB Corsair RAM
AMD 2700+
nVidia GeForce 3
WD Raptor HD 74GiB
All the latest official drivers.

I get into the game, see the menu, click new game, single player, medium, it shows the load screen, then crashes to the desktop.

Any ideas?

I think it might be your Graphics Card. It's quite old...

I have the exact same problem and also have a Geforce 3. I find it kind of suprising that it's supposed to be 'too old'. The Need for Speed: Most Wanted demo runs like a charm and so does basically any other game. Some kind of error message or something would at least be nice to give a hint as to what's going wrong. I hope it isn't a Graphics Card issue because if so, I just wasted some of my hard earned cash on a game I can't play.

Geforce3 is not officially supported and game package lists Geforce4Ti as minimum. However, it might work if you set all details to very low and try running game in low resolution.

I try to look more into this but I can't make any promises.

I guess GeForce 4MX doesn't even work either :cry:

GF 3 doesn't support Direct X 9, that could probably be the reason. I'm I correct to say, that the game renders with Direct X 9?

game crashes

My game has worked fine until the 'activation of the spaceship' mission where you gotta do small missions to put that ship alive... So i have to enter 'delta labs' and after i have killed some 4 cannon mobs and i walk along the hallway the PC reboots itself :D (i think it changed to cineamtics on the moment)

Well, i was little pissed so i tried again and redid the mission and the same thing happened again ^^

Im using
AMD 3000+
nVidia GeForce4 TI 4800 SE (got all newest drivers)
Ram 1gig

After bo0ting these files had something to do with it... well i dunno...

My specs are:

AthlonXP 2000+ (1.7Ghz)
GeForce4 MX440 64Mb
WindowsXP SP2

(I know it sucks, but there's nothing I can do. =P)

I think the game should work, but it also crashes after any load. I already got the newer driver for my video card, but I still have the same problem.
