Well, been playing TM all day now.

I have a problem with ladder play under WinXP though,

almost every other race, sometimes 2-3 times in the same race, the game stops. I mean it STOPS, and closes to the desktop,or even just restarts the computer....

I've checked my RAM before playing, and there is 60-70 megs free for the game on startup.

specs:

WinXP
Celeron 1100 ghz
128 megs RAM


any ideas whats wrong?

Thanks!

If you've got a VooDoo based graphics card it could be that, Nvidia won't let microsoft use the 3d glide drivers, or something like that.

according to my PC info, it's an "Integrated Intel AGP 3D" graphics accelerator...

I figured out the problem...
seeing as how this is a NEW PC, and only four days old, I haven't tweeked all these settings yet. between HP's BS junk they install, and Windows trying to keep me connected 24/7...

fixed.
