Could someone please help!

I am in the fish place, and then I get into the fish model, am taken ontop of the ball of twine. Then when I try and use Max with the piece of string on the ball of twine, the game crashes with a error saying something like:

"Granular limit exeeded"

I tried playing the game again from further back a few times, but it still goes wrong!

I had that problem when I first played the game. It was even the same location if I remember correctly. I don't recall a solution, but since I used DOS back then I think we can exclude OS problems. Do you have the latest update (http://support.lucasarts.com/patches/sam.htm)?

Hey .. DOS you remember .. DISK OPERATION SYSTEM .. so it is an OS. So. And some games are using Expanded Memory (EMS) .. now we are at the Expanded Memory Manager -- which handles EMS and he is doing it by using this granularity thingsy (do not let me explain this.) -- BOING.

So i suppose you'll have to "play" with that EMM parameters .. back in the day i used QEMM (never had this prob) which has some kind of DOS-wizard for this...

hey and if i am wrong then stop me before that poor guy will beat up his RAM.

well, I haven't tried the patch, and I am using the school computers at the moment, so when I get home I'll try it.

Oh yeah, and I am using Windows XP.

Thanks
