) web site says that DirectX 8 Beta doesn't work with X-Wing Alliance.
I'm using 8.1 (4.08.01.0901) and I'm also having problems getting XWA working. The game starts but soon (< 1 minute) after I start a mission I get a hard hang - ALT-Enter/CTRL-ALT_DEL have no effect and I have to press the reset button to reboot.
Does anyone have XWA working with DirectX 8+?
Has anyone seen my problem before?
I'm running Windows 98 patched with the latest releases that the Microsoft Update Centre says I need (apart from some crap like the Euro conversion tool I'll never use) on a AMD Duron 700 with 192Mb RAM and a Voodoo3 2000 graphics card (again the driver is up to date). I've run DxDiag and it says "No problems found". I've installed the 2.02 XWA patch. I've removed and reinstalled a couple of time.
