Red Alert 2

it won't start on my Intel GMA G331/G31 Express Chipset. i know it's a bad chip. but what's the problem? when i start playing, it starts OK, but with 640x480 (wtf?). after about a minute of gameplay, it says that there is some internal mistake and it will now quit. anybody knows the reason? i have the latest drivers, a powerful CPU (ic2d@2.66GHz), lots of memory (2Gb, this game requires 64Mb i guess) and powerful enough video card (it says 2Mb Min video card). i have everything perfect, but still it says so. please help me. wolf team works well, even though on small settings too (i guess it's 640x480, but for this game it's ok, not for red alert though) again, please help me. thank you

  1. This usually happens with a pirated edition... Please post the exact error message.
  2. that might be it, but how do i know if it is?
  3. ok, in compatibility mode it works just fine. maybe now i can set the resolution bigger? 800x600 would be ok, but i want 1024x768
