Every time I try I get an error message and it doesn't even start an opening cutscene.
The error message is a run-time error that mentions "R6025 Pure virtual function call" or words to that effect.
The game files fail validation whether they are installed from DVD or downloaded from Steam, I have tried repeatedly.
I'm using Windows XP Pro, UK English, with all latest updates. I have reinstalled the VC 2008 32-bit library. I have reinstalled Steam. I have tried switching to US English. I have obviously been through numerous other topics elsewhere including technical problems with this game...
I am using a Radeon X1950 Pro. I am using dual 2.8 ghz Pentium processors. I have 3 gigabytes of SDRAM. I have over 5 gigs of free hard disk space. All my drivers are up to date.
The last best idea I can think of is my graphics card is not up to scratch (and tbh the X1950 is a bit glitchy anyway), but that doesn't seem like the sort of error message I would get for a graphics card issue, I'd expect something that actually mentions my graphics card. Furthermore that wouldn't explain the file validation issue.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone else even come across this problem? (I have not found anyone anywhere with this specific issue)
Edit: Ok I noticed the topic with other people having validation issues, but that's obviously not my main problem here.
