When I try to install with Windows XP I get the following message:
"File copy error (CRC does not match)"
The game installed fine when I was running Windows 98SE. ***No hardware changes were made.
I've tried installing to NTFS and FAT32 partitions with the same results.
ASUS P4T Motherboard
45gig HD partitioned (4-NTFS 1-FAT32 partitions)
Geforce 3 AGP
Any ideas or suggestions would be nice?
does the game play?
the messages are supposed to happen in 1.29
what OFP ver you have?
Sorry, I was a bit vague in my post.
I have the original US release, 1.20, I think. ***The game never installed as it popped up that message when it tried to copy the first file to the hard drive. ***Then it crashed back to the desktop. ***Every time I tried to install, it was the same exact message at the same exact time. ***The cd appears to be fine, no scratches or smudges.
I FOUND OUT WHERE MY PROBLEM WAS AND FIXED IT!!!
After a lengthily searches on the web I found that Windows XP doesn’t default it’s IDE controllers to use DMA.
My solution was this:
- Under Device Manager select “IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers”. ***
- On the Primary AND Secondary IDE Channels, left click to bring up their Properties.
- In the Properties section, look under the “Advanced Settings” tab.
- Make sure the “Transfer Modes” are showing “DMA if available”.
My hard drive utilizes UDMA and the settings were at PIO Only. ***After I changed over to DMA, the game installed with out any problems. ***I was even able to update to 1.30 without any hiccups either. ***I only ran through a quick single mission to steal the UAZ and it ran without any problems what so ever. ***So far it runs rock solid.
I hope this can help some of you with the same problem I had.
Why would you be ever using PIO mode with your computer. ***Unless you have system conflicts, using UDMA is always better.
