I dunno if this is the forum to be posting this on but I'm desperate. The problem is when I'm flyin around in space adter about 15 minutes or so doing a mission or something and the game just freezes or crashes to the desktop with the following error:
Application Error C:\Dark\dark.exe The instruction at 00475534 referenced memory at ffffffff The memory could not be read from ------------------- DARK caused an invalid page fault in module DARK.EXE at 0167:00475534.

I have pretty much disabled my entire computer, harware acceleration, System.ini and Win.ini, closed down background tasks, 256 color at 640*480 to the extent that nothing else runs on my computer except Privateer 2 (just!!!). In the game I have disabled all video & animated transsitions as well as all sounds except obviously in movies.
Maybe it's directx right?...I have tried the game on 5 other computers with directx certified drivers and the same problem persists. The only directx issue I can think of is my 39MB page file which might be limiting the virtual memory (or whatever!!!) for the game. If this is the case then how do I change this page file size to something larger.
The only other thing I can think of is in the game itself but since there is no more origin or anyone who can release a patch for this what the heck can one do?
PLEEZ can someone help. I have been trying to play this game for 5 years and I still havent finished it!!!
