    Click here!

    Download the patch (for whatever language you might need), execute, and you should be fine.

    Thanks.I'll do as what you told me. I do think the only problem is my xp......It's a chineses version....I will try anyway. thanks again.And i'll probably come back for some more disturbing problems.
    Hope i can play this game again after all these freaking trouble.

    If your computer is having trouble just buy more ram. That always helps.

    You can edit your posts, Gabriel. Top-right of the post, next to the quote button.

    silaris, XP has a sort of emulate feature, you rightclick on the shortcut, there will be a compatability tab. Play with it, perhaps that will fix it.
