Unfortunately, that is probably your problem. OMF has been known to have problems on both Windows 98 and Windows ME.

So the game worked at one point, right? Have you tried restarting your computer? It could very well fix your problem.

I know I've seen that error message before. When I wake up a bit more, maybe I'll be able to remember from where, or I could find it for ya.

The 4MHz thing is a known bug in the autodetection scripts, can you tell us what your real processor is? Smile

winME is indeed a piece of garbage. Make sure it's all patched up, you have the latest directx (9.0b or c) and have the latest nVidia drivers.

Has the game ever worked for you?

I thought I remembered seeing this: Link 1 Link 2

Link 2 is also on the page from link 1.

Basically, you need to delete the PheonixRegistry.DEObjects file, which by default is located at: C:\Program Files\Diversions Entertainment\One Must Fall - Battlegrounds\Data\

Delete that file, then rerun the game, hopefully that'll fix it for you. The PheonixRegistry file saves all of your settings, so you'll have to reset them to what you want them at afterward.

The game is working again. I had gotten the game to work fine before. My processor is a 1.1 Gigahertz AMD Athlon. I did what Nightshadow said to do and it now works, except the graphics have changed. Thanks for the help. Smile

Well, hopefully that helps prevent me from getting any lumps of coal tomorrow morning. :biggrin2:

Enjoy the game.
