Ok. I'm running SFC3 on Win XP pro SP2, using compatibility mode for Win 98/Win ME Problems include: Skirmish mode, every time I try to select another race than federation, the game crashes with "Unhandled Exception" Campaign mode, I get as far as the front loading screen, where the progress bar appears. I click repeatedly when it's finished, but go nowhere. I have to reset my PC to get out of this. My SFC3 version is not customised at all, I removed the added ships etc to try to fix it. I've tried ever compatibility option there is, and no joy. I'm now stuck. Any ideas? :confused: :mad:

Uninstall game and delete the Program Files/Activision/Sfc3 folder completely, update to Direct X 9.0c if you haven't already, reinstall game, install 534b patch, do the compatibility with it set to Win 2000 and disable visual themes. If that doesn't work, take two asprin and post results in the morning.
