Well, i've been browsing and troubleshooting this for about 3 days now - I got it to work. once. now i keep coming back to the same error. allow me to go through a few of the things I have attempted in hope of fixing this.
1. Downloaded SamMaxSeason1_SecurROM_1.0_TAC. (I have the 2-disc version)
2. Removed Daemon tools
3. Removed extranious CD burner (Only one drive attached now)
4. Ripped CD Drivers (and ghosts)
5. Reset Bios
6. Updated Video drivers
7. Updated Directx
8. Reinstalled the game and patch many times throughout the process.
My system specs are;
Pentium IV 2.8 Ghz
1.0gb of ram
Radeon 9550 256mb GFX
Creative SB sound
WinXP Home SP2
DX9.0c - I Downloaded 10 but it stated that I already have equivalent software and would not install.
P.S. The error occurs AFTER the spinning disc comes up.
Thank you for your time.
