i am looking for the sound glyph, i just happened apon the fire reaver. NOW, every time i try to go back to cathederal entrance (via the underworld,the game crashes no error message or anything just to my desktop........also when i found the fire reaver, and i go to the area by the first boss,(where there is a fire and a large symbol on the wall) this is just coming out of the water after getting the reaver power-up, i try to relight the reaver and the game quietly crashes again the same way straight to my desk top.

am i doing somthing wrong or will the patch from this web sight that i just downloaded help??????????????????

What is your PC's configuration? Hardware, OS, and so forth? If you're playing it on Windows 2000 or XP, make sure you've got all the patches from Windows Update, DirectX8.1 and so forth. Also be sure you're using the 1.02 patch for SR1. If you have 1.0 it will crash a lot on newer OSes.

Weird. I've never heard of a problem like that on 98. If you haven't already emailed Eidos support I'd go ahead and do so.

I've been having a helluva time getting SR1 to run on Win2K. From what I've been reading from all over the internet is that SR1 dosen't like Forceware drivers, it only likes Detonator drivers. Try downgrading your drivers. Use Driver Cleaner Pro first to clean out all those files the nVidia uninstallers seem to miss.
