thanks for the effort and even I have bought some other Matrix games online (WAW, Supremacy, Gates of Troy, Starship Unlimited) I didn't bought the RFTS Matrix Edition, as I already have the original SSI 2000 (and somewhere the first release from SSG also) Version.
But the Problem with the SSI 2000 Version on my computer is that it only loads the first screen "Reach for the stars" and than music starts to play and that's it the yellow line at the bottom didn't complete ...
so I hoped that 1.41 could be applied to the original version, which worked, but the same happen ... only the loading screen shows up and than music plays but didn't finish to load. As I have WinXP Pro it wasn't a surprise for me and even the different compability modes didn't help. Because I bought it from SSI it isn't really your concern, anyway I have following questions:
1. Is this patch and the following ones supposed also for the poor people, who have bought it from SSI in 2000 ?
2. Are you intrested why it didn't start on my PC (if so, do you want a DXDiag from my PC ?)
Okay anyway wish you lot of success with the rerelease of that game and hope many will buy it.
