HEY FOLKS,
I have sucsesfully installed ESCAPE FROM MONKEY ISLAND on my NEW computer. I have Windows XP. I changed it to 16 bit still dont work. Any way after it crashes and restarts it says the problem was caused by my 3-D card. The GeForce 2 or sumthing like that. the screen goes blank and we have new drivers and patches. plus xp updates and it still doesnt work. Grannen, Helpers, Folks. ANYBODY! Please help my Deprived of MoKeY IsLaNd SOUL!!!

Here are some suggestions:

1. Menu Options Conf. options Trouble Shooting and Enable Direct3D + 16bit
2. Menu Analyze your comp. Does it pass?
3. Same as 2. and run the DirectX Diagn.
4. This computer Control panel and reduce the number of colors. Try 256.
5. Same as 4. and try a lower resolution (800x600)
6. Start play Press F1 Options Alter Gee Wizz Factor and try Minimum settings.

Did it pass the test as I suggested in line 2?
It makes several tests and it takes about 1-2 minutes before you get the report.

Yeah passed easy and there were no problems with diagnostics, except it said something about how the drivers we had wernt registered. but i dont think thats it.
