That's strange... I don't even have to have the DVD in my DVD-ROM to play...
Try a re-install? Try playing the game without the patches installed. Then install patch 1.00001, see if it works, then finally move to patch 1.00003 and see if it works.
yea the drive is fine and my cpu meets all system requirements!!! i've done a re-install twice, and as for patches i've 4 some reason got the game 2 actually start with only the 1.001 patch but i have no idea why it started those 2 times, i'm trying again now and i get the same old message again!!! V ANNOYING!!! Just tried playing without the disc and it says : "No disc inserted. Please insert the CD/DVD" so dats not gonna work, the two times i did get into the game, i was talking to the trader, then my screen just cut out and said no signal?!! WTF!! it juts gets worse un worse!!
I have also taken your advice and re0installed with no patchs, then the 1.001 then 1.003, each time same result!!! SOME1 PLZ!
corrupt disc? do you have anybody you could borrow a copy off or maybe
to see if that would work?
unfortunately i dunno ny1 else with the game!! lol i will do that as a last resort!! wot wud u suggest if u can get into the game like 1 in 50 go's un then when u get into the actual game u can talk 2 the trader for a min, he shows u how 2 use stuff etc then the screen just goes black and everything crashes??!!!
if its working at least once without you changing something i'd have to assume computer error, what specs are you running?
what i mean is what pc do you have, like my specs in my sig :)
