My computer is only a year old. I run xp pro and everything, including drivers for all hardware, is up to date. No problem installing and no problem running the game.
The window that directed me to the codec site had a box I could click so it wouldn't come up again. Now there is only one small glitch. When I open the game and click off the Matrix ad, the whole thing minimizes and I have to click the game on the taskbar to bring it up.
The window directs me to this site: http://www.ligos.com/index.php/home/products/indeo/
I haven't tried uninstalling and reinstalling but I can if necessary.
Or, if the codecs to run the videos are not installed correctly, how can I check that? I went to the ToS directory in the windows explorer and couldn't find any videos at all. Where would they be located?
Thanks for any help.
There's a version of Windows Media Player between 8 and 11 that doesn't support those INDEO codecs (don't remember the exact number... I have the 11 and it has got those codecs, but there's a friend of mine who had problems similar to yours with certain types of AVI files, and it had a previous release)... If you have that version you cannot run certain types of AVI files on your system: so you can update your Windows Media Player to the newest version, and that will install automatically the new INDEO codecs on your system and u will able to play those files. If you don't want to udate your WMP, you can install only those codecs... they're quite common, but you must pay attention where u download them from... or you could download a bundle of codecs and spyware.
