I think it's a problem XWA has with XP. There was a thread about it in the General forum - check there, and I think there's a link that might help.

No, as I use 98se. You might try asking at the forums at http://www.xwlegacy.net - someone there may know.

and sometimes i just wish compatability littereally changed your os to another one.. without loosing the error protection... that'd be great.

XWA on my machine had a problem running with a GeForce 2 MX video card. Once I replaced it, it ran fine.
