My pc is 4 years old and my operating system is Windows XP - Home Edition
- Version 5.1
- on a Compaq Presario PC

. I doubt that info is very helpful but I figured I mention it.
When I had the game previously I think I was using Windows ME, but I don't remember much else about the pc I was using - but the DTRSC game worked perfectly on that.
A neighbor suggested that I might be closing in on my memory usage so I checked that and I have plenty of available memory left yet. Fact is, I am only currently using 13,198,876,672 (12.2 GB)
out of the 75,881,590,784 (70.6 GB)
that is available, so I don't see that as being the problem
I've tried changing the resolution and even tried an uninstall / re-install of the game, and so far nothing has worked. The game (DTRSC) is still "jittery" and "jumpy" and virtually impossible to play. Play it for more than 5 minutes and it starts to give you a headache (not to mention hard on the eyes).
I haven't had much time to do a Google Search for game patches yet, but it looks like I am going to have to do that sometime over the weekend. Maybe one of the patches will fix the problem.
I still don't understand why my DTR game plays fine - but the DTRSC game doesn't. Even though the DTRSC game is new and the disk appears to be flawless - could there possibly be a problem with the game disk itself that you cannot see visually ??
Anyhow, Thanks for the information you all offered me so far - I appreciate that.
Keep me posted if anyone can think of anything else.
