Am I the only one who's game crashes when I try to access the Mission Planner while in a mission?
I am using all the standard stuff, glide wrapper, cpukiller, 2.09 Patch. Any suggestions or advice would be appriciated.
Thanks, Tim

Check your vid card settings. Try something different.

I have to refresh this thread with report of same problem. Alt N gets me CTD. Any solution? Also same with "Read Janes" menu click

There are some other numerous however minor graphic glitches, however, I must say that in general Glide Wrapper "face lift" works wonders with LB2 otherwise aged looks.

I thought the ALT-N bug was related to not limiting memory to <=366 MB.

Thanks, I missed it.

I am thinking too to pull out one of the older computers and install old Voodoo2 accelelators with win 98. I hope there are still drivers around. It is not fair to judge LB2 on the platform which was not meeant to be running.

But how many people have or are willing to commit separate rig just to LB2 (desk space seems to be the biggest obstacle ) so the effort to maintain LB2 XP compatible is still important.

XP compatability is paramount IMO. Not everyone's willing to have two machines. The game, thus far, seems to work fine now with all the tweaks.

In my case alt-N doesn't do anything, no matter where I am. I get evrything else to work after the reboot on limited RAM but that I never got.

And I agree with you +G on the XP compatability.
