aloha everyone! does anyone know why Alliance kicks me out to the desktop at certain times? it always happens after the final briefing, when it loads up the mission. my comp specs are:
P2 400 64 megs ram ATI Rage 2c SB Live 5.1 anything more? oh yeah, windows 98, maybe i'll try ME

I get that too. Whenever i try and go into a game, it brings me back to the desktop once it gets to the loading screen. I think it may have something to do with DirectX 8.0. Do you have that version?

yeah, but i've tried 7.0, and 6.0 too. what kind of vidoe card ya got?

I have a Voodoo 3 2000 PCI card. I don't know if its the drivers i just installed for it or not, but i hope not. I hope i can fix this easily, because its pissing me off.

Are you guys just getting the load bar and then desktop? I know when I try to start a
mission, after all the briefing stuff it
shows a white rectangle (I'm GUESSING it's
the load bar) but then it goes black. If I
hit the F key it shoots me back to the desk
top although sometimes it stays but I can use
the windows cursor, really weird. I'm using
a Creative Blaster Riva TNT card and Direct X

I have a AMD 1.1ghz, Voodoo5 5500, SB Live, DX8, and I have the same crash to desktop problem.

I believe it is the 3dfx drivers, beacuse when I first got my Voodoo5, the game worked fine, but after a few drive updates, I can not play XWA anymore.

Either that, or it is DX8... does anyone here have the same problem when using DX7 or DX6?

HI...i got the same %&/&"! problem! I got
voodoo 3000 and work perfectly with directX 7.0.....but with version 8.0 the game is down.
I thinks that lucasarts should be responsible and give us a solution. I send them a e-mail for this problem, but but no reply.
