I have a strange problem that occurs every so often with my game. Sometimes when I start the game (both modes) it freezes right after the screen turns white to go to the opening movie with the lucasarts sign, etc. Oftentimes, it freezes and flashes white and black bars, enough to give someone a seizure. It's really irritating because the only solution is alt+ctrl+del, end task. I then have to restart to get it to work properly. I'm running XP on a brand new Dell P4 (2.0 GHz) with a brand new graphics card that came with it. The card is not the problem, I have the latest driver, too. Is there a combination of video display options that could help me avoid this? Also, when I close the program, my desktop looks strange; the clock on the taskbar is invisible, and the icons are showing that they are an unknown file type. It slowly reverts to normal. Very weird! Any help here would be hot.
