Is anyone else having problems running DX Ball 2 with Windows XP? Ever since I upgraded to XP, DX Ball 2 will lock up after about 10 min. of play and the system will reboot.

Version 1.25 of DX-Ball 2 is fully XP compatible.

Like most problems of this sort, this issue is almost certainly related to hardware drivers. Please download and install the newest, manufacturer created, XP compatible drivers for both your video and sound cards.

Also, make sure that no programs are running in the background during play. Right-click and close any extraneous icons in your system tray, especially anti-virus programs.

You also may want to check the cooling for both your CPU and Video Card. Lockups that occur after a certain length of time are sometimes related to overheating issues.

This is especially a problem on systems where the CPU and/or video memory is overclocked for some reason.

If you still have problems after all that, then please send the details of your system setup to support@longbowdigitalarts.com .
