I've never played this game before but hear good things about it so I've decided to give it a try but unfortunately I'm stuck running it on Windows XP despite my experience getting older games to work and my searches on the web.

I have installed the game and the three patches. When I launch the game I get the menu and when I click "New Game" the screen resolution changes, a black screen appears and I hear some introduction music. Then nothing happens and the game hangs. I have to alt-tab out and kill it.

I have tried the various compatibility settings on both the shortcut as well as Oc1.exe, Oc2.exe and Oc3.exe. I've tried running CPUKiller. I've tried running CPUKiller and the loading program with 1 core and even tried changing to 1 core the hanged process as well. None of this has worked and there doesn't seem to be any more suggestions out there. Do any of you have any?
