I recently installed a few older games and they dont seem to want to run after installation (they arnt DOS and are compatible with XP). I've updated them with their patches but usually I get an error right after the initial screen saying it has encountered a problem and needs to close down.
These three games are Undying, Alice, and No one lives forever 1. They all seem to be closely related in the way they launch. I wonder what the deal could be... maybe I am missing something minor. I have the latest drivers for my vid card, and latest directx.
Have u run a google search for forums for each of those games? I tend to find that if u find a forum dedicated to the game u will find that the problem has already been documented there. Usually is a better place to start than just a general forum here.
