View Full Version : RS on XP weird?

Something strange happens when I play RS on XP. When I get killed the second time during any mission the game seems to "continue on" without me.

Let me explain. You all know that when you're killed, you wait about 2-3 seconds before you get to use your next life. Well, what happens to me is that I seem to be waiting forever. It won't let me use my next life. The screen is fixed on the location of where I either crashed or was shot down. But I notice the Ties, X-Wings, turbolasers, etc. continue fighting each other. It is as if the game goes on without me and I'm beeing left out :( Don't know what the heck is going on! :(

ATI Radeon Xpress 200
XP Home Edition
Direct X 9.0c
RS patch installed
Set "compatability" to Win98

I made this screencap of an example of what happens. In The Battle of Calamari I got shotdown the 1st time then crashed on the roof of this World Devastator the 2nd. The "camera" is looking at where I crashed then it slowly begins pulling back. And this is how it looked!?!?! WTF!?!?! Help? :(
