It doesn't look like the patch will fix my problem of owning a Kyro II. It runs fine at 1024x768@32 or 800x600@32. Supposedly the game is "more" stable @32 bit color on the Kyro; however, I can't play for more than 5 to 6 minutes before the game freezes. It's not long enough to finish the first couple of missions. It seems to freeze whenever a police car gets on the screen with flashing lights...oh well, guess I'm in the market for a new video card... I have no problems with my SoundBlaster Live! card as mentioned in earlier posts.
