DX again-- got one of those "red x's" from Xp saying T-Gold could not be installed due to direct X limitation."

Any takers for this?


Thanks Jim

Sorry, Jim, but I'm not keeping track of who's having which problem. If this is old news just ignore me.

Isn't that the -lgntforce switch thing?

Don't install from the splash/menu that comes up when you put the CD in. Kill that. Go to Start->Run, browse to the CD drive and select setup.exe. But before actually running it modify the Run Command line to have the -lgntforce switch at the end of it. That worked for me anyway. Can't recall for sure the problem was DirectX related though.

Ok, I went through Xp compatability mode for Gold install. It seems to be working. I quickly went through the training just to see and hear the game. Is there a crash monster around the corner ? Should I just go ahead and un-install, re-install like you suggested?

..And by the way, no one is ever late when providing information or helping someone...

No need to reinstall, all the LGNTFORCE switch does is ignore the Windows NT check. The install does nothing different other than skip the check.
