I just loaded IL 2 Sturmovik into my new Windows XP desktop. Everything appears to work normally EXCEPT when I click "Fly" I get a new window but the game won't begin. I've hit every button on my keyboard!

It must be a simple solution, but what is it?


Thanks for your help!

I won't try to BS you that I have the answer. But I recently installed XP, played with it for about 3 days, and finally gave up on it and reinstalled winME.

Now, I have many freinds who swear by XP, and the new NTFS file system is awesome!, but I had trouble with it and just gave up. I decided it was a bad purchase for me and what I like to do with my pooter.

Right off the batt I would suggest changing back and forth from DirectX, and OpenGL, see if you get any results.

Another thing I would check is your system properties, make sure your drivers were carried over into XP.

If that don't work...dial the 1-800# and use that service you paid for.

good luck

Better yet use the tech forum as they will do a better job. Also tell them which version of the game you have and by all means make sure the patches are up to date. Good luck.
