Yes, you should go ahead and reinstall the game while following the large-print instructions at the top of the second post in that thread. Do everything that they tell you to do, and in the order that they tell you and the game should run OK.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

Did you ever get this to work?

I have the exact same problem with the video card. I tried Q's instructions, but they didn't work for me.

Are you using the original disks?
