The computer I am running this game on is a hp pavilion intel celeron 733 mhz, 128 of memory, and a new pci video card with 128mb. My os is xp pro and everything seems to be working fine. My problem is this, when I go to start the game I see double of everything. This double vision is like a ghost effect. I have not been able to find a solution and I am working on this computer for a friend. The end result is I need help!!! If anybody has any suggestions that would be great.

Thanks is advanced;
Adam Cohen

First of all the game requires a minimum of 256MB when using XP.

It could be that the game is trying to use a resolution that the monitor doesn't support, try changing it in the options. Also the latest drivers couldn't hurt.

You're running a sub-1ghz processor with 128mb of RAM on XP? You seriously need to upgrade, my computer has a 2.4ghz processor with 512mb of RAM... However I can barely run the game because the GFX is terrible..
And you got a PCI video card?? (Please tell me it's PCI-E)
Can you tell us what video card you got, and make sure you have all the drivers updated (I was having a problem with NWN but a new driver fixed that)

EDIT: Wait a second... Roller Coaster Tycoon 2!! I dunno what I did but I thought it said 3.... I have a comp similar to that which can run it fine, so update your drivers.

Thanks, I went to ati and downloaded the newest drivers. With that now the application will not start; meaning ati is having an apps error. Also, I am in agreement with you that my memory is also an issue so I will try and increase that too. If you can offer anything else that would be great.
