Ok, to avoid eventual other compatibility issues, I would suggest to save a backup copy of your NR2003 folders, uninstall it, reboot and install it again, including the v22.214.171.124. patch. Then save the nr2003_no_cd.exe into the main NR2003 folder and then see what happens with both the original NR2003 patched to v 126.96.36.199. and with the no cd exe.
Btw, which OS are you using now?
I am not at home till March 7, so I guess there is little I can experiment till then, but I think that if you upload your config.ini and player.inifile here, perhaps that may help. I can check them to see if I can find something abnormal. I guess the problem may have something to do with the graphics card OR with hte sound card, but I can't be sure before checking those files and knowing which OS is installed there.
As I mentioned in the first post
, win xp pro sp2. That's what I've been running for the last two years.
I have no config.ini in any of my installs. app.ini, or rend_dxg.ini maybe? Regardless, it's a fresh install on a new hard drive on a new mobo.
After the install I clicked on "finish" and the config box opened and I made my selection, 1600 x 1200 x 32 (and I also tried it with 1600 x 1200 x 16). It won't run anything more than the intro(s).
All the "ini's" are bone stock because the game never runs.
After the first install wouldn't run...
I did an uninstall, deleted the left behind folder and re-installed. Wouldn't run.
I installed to a non-default location. Wouldn't run.
I patched it. Wouldn't run.
I tried the no cd exe. Wouldn't run.
The no cd exe is "NR2003.exe", the same as the original disk exe, the same as the patched exe. You can't have more than one file with the same name in the main folder, windows won't allow it.
I've already considered the video card and (especially) the sound, but If the modded (edited) exe's work, I find it extremely doubtful that these are the problem. I did try running the sound as 2 channel (I've been running 4.1 for years), but that didn't help.
Thanks for looking Arturo.
I got a thought it might be a corruption of the disk read. I tried installing via another optitical drive, but still no run.
I'm thinking, now, it might be a registry problem.
Since I don't exactly know what I'm looking for, sorting the registry is going to take a while. I may try to install it on another pc and go from there.
