Instead of playing Sam & Max Ice Station Santa on my high end desktop I'm trying this episode on my 2002 Dell Inspiron 8200. I looked through the game specs and it should play okay. The Inspiron has a 2.2 GHz processor; 1 GB of RAM; and a Radeon 9000 w/ 64 MB of video RAM.
So why is the game hanging up (system lockup) when I start a new game and the title screen plays and displays "Sam and Max". At this point the machine consistently goes into lockup and I have to power off. Prior to starting a new game though I played through the Tutorial successfully although come to think of it there may be some minor sluggishness to it. I'm using my Desktop resolution in the game of 1280 x 1024.
Any ideas? I think by default it wanted to play in 800 x 600? The specs didn't indicate any resolution restrictions and I never thought Sam & Max was tough on systems.
RATS--I posted this in the wrong section!:eek:
