Crashes before game can load
I have an AMD Athlon 1 gig processor, 256 megs of RAM, Nvidia GeForce 4MX 420, and a Soundblaster Audigy. Win98 SE. I've installed the 1.01 patch and I'm running DX 8.1. I updated all hardware drivers within the last week.
I've gotten Grim to install (I've tried the minimun and full install), but once I try to start the game the screen goes black and then crashes back to my desktop. I normally run my desktop at 1024x768 @32bit color, but I've also tried turning that down to 640x480 @ 16bit color. I've tries launching the game from the game launcher, from grimfandango.exe and from the CD itself. I've uninstalled the game and tried running both the base demo and the full demo. I get the same sort of crashing (black screen then back to my desktop).
I installed DX 6 (as a last resort). That didn't work, so I reinstalled DX 8.1. I've run DX diag since then, and it shows no problems.
I have no other computer problems. Everything's been working fine. Any suggestions or advice is very welcome.
