I have an Eee PC 1000HA that I've been using to play season one of Sam and Max on my lunch breaks at work. I played episodes 1-5 with no problems, well it was a little slow loading between locations, but that's to be expected on a low powered netbook.
Anyway, I finished 105, and clicked on 106 to finish off the season. The launcher loaded fine, I clicked "Launch Game," and all I got was a white box in the lower right hand side of the screen, taking up about 3/4 screen space. The bit of my desktop behind the box flickered. I let it sit there for a few seconds, and the audio started, it was choppy but there. It never did load correctly, never got the visual, just bad audio.
I uninstalled it, deleted the installer, downloaded from the website again, reinstalled it, and still have the same problem. I then tried it on my desktop at home last night, and it works fine. The only thing I can figure is that the system requirements changed between 105 & 106, otherwise I have no idea why five of the episodes would work perfectly fine, but the sixth one won't. I checked the posted system specs for 105 & 106, and the website says they are the same, however.
It's not a big deal, I'll just play 106 on my desktop. I'm just curious about what went wrong, since when I get around to buying season 2 I'd like to do the same thing, play it on my Eee PC on my lunch breaks.
Any insight would be appreciated.
