How can something I love so much be so cruel to me...
I changed nothing in my prefectly functioning win 7 install.
Got could not load track and hourglass stuck so had to task manager to get out
desktop now 640x
GEM then said fatal error.
tried starting gpl.exe got the missing glide error
deleted the rast3dfx.dll and renddll.dll
CTD and 640x continues
but GEM starts !
noticed GEM had chaged rasteriser to software.
changed to D3Dv2 no change
changed to OGL v2 and YES!!! get to track offline and looking good.
Try Igor and on joining a green it goes to the GPL multiplayer page rather than straight in...
The box for putting in IP number is not active...sigh.
running out of ideas now.
I normally just reinstall from scratch when this sort of thing happens
but I loaned out my original CD
any help much appreciated !
