I got the latest signed drivers from Microsoft (v188.8.131.52) they worked fine. The game now works in 3D mode perfect.
The patch you sent me via email also worked fine.
> When I search Microsoft for the latest nvidia signed drivers I get 3.11.0018 and everything works fine on my XP boxes that use nvidia cards. They do however have problems when I use the latest drivers downloaded from Nvidia (Many games like Unreal Tournament II give me a blue screen of death and crash my systems.)
> Searching the use groups on the net, there are tons of people having problems with the Nvidia/XP/DirectX driver combinations out there. Most blame Microsoft for the complexity of their plight but I am pretty sure, since they (Microsoft) aren't signing the latest Nvidia drivers that Nvidia is the true cause of most of these problems.
> To find Microsoft signed drivers for your card, go to windows update and click on "Find Hardware Drivers Update". Find your card and install and try the latest driver (by date).
