Is the game running full screen? There have been some issues with other software fighting for resources when the game is running in full screen on a mac. Try running in windowed and see if you have the same issue. Also check if you have SP3 for win XP.

seems like I do indeed have SP3 for XP and i dont think its in fullscreen

I'll see if I can get a XP machine to try this out - and I'll ask the port programmers if there is a known issue with this. I might not be able to get back to you immediatly on this.

i hope the problem can be fixed, I got very interested in the game and really want to see the end~

Hi, I've checked with the programmers and we're not sure what is giving you problems as your hardware meets minimum specs, and you have the software dependencies to run the game. I do not have a machine with exactly your specs to test it out - but could get it working on a XP on a newer machine. For now I can only offer you the following advice:

1) try reinstalling you game
2) make sure your drivers (esp for graphics) are up to date
3) shut down any unneccesarry background programs that may be competing for computer resources with the game.

Really hope one of these works for you.

I dont get a freeze, but the granade/mental-bug is stuck pointing upwards after i get the granades (cant move it in either direction). Dont know if there is any relation, but found it curious that i had problems in the same spot.
I'm on Linux by the way.

Not sure what you mean by "in the same spot" - do you get this issue only at a specific spot or once you pick up grenades?

Hi Hansen, Thanks for the reply.
I dont want to steal the thread, but yes, I *started* having the problem after getting the granades.
For what I can tell, it seems the controller (im using a cabled xbox controller) looses the ability to go up or down, while im holding the LF (the granade/brainbug button).

I have found other problems later on (like loosing all ability to point in a direction on the jetpacks). I have to exit the game and restart it in order to get it working again, and sometimes, even that doesnt work.

I could start a thread of my own with this. Just found weird that I started having issues in the same spot, thats why I posted about it.

What driver are you using for the controller? Xpad? something else?
humblepac Dec 4, 2013 @ 7:23pm 
I think it's xpad, but I'm not loading any modules manually.

$ lsmod
Module Size Used by
joydev 17377 0
xpad 18042 0
ff_memless 13013 1 xpad

Those are the related modules I see loaded when I plug the controller.
