that's a start.

I've decided if I really want to play the game I will use the other machine, it's runs fine on an ol P4 2 Ghz w/GeForce2 with 32MB ram.

I will report the problem, and hopefully will be able to see how it looks with better textures and effects. I am an eye-candy junkie I guess =/.

Finally, I have to wonder if it's the video card or the 64bit OS/Processor. The 64bit build seems to act different in some ways. Is it just me? hehehe
