still no joy, I'm using a downloaded version of the game from a few links up.
I have an original copy arriving next week which I bought from ebay so I'll try it with that. Can you confirm whether the original games creates any entries in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software ?
My install currently has no entries in the registry, perhaps this is the problem as it doesn't know where to look for the game in order update 3DFX?
