XP sp3 is one of the worst options to play DK2. sp2 is much better with DK2. And dual core, ofc. Be sure to launch the game as a single core. To do that, launch the game, summon the task manager. Go to processes. Find the dk2.exe, go to affinity. Be sure to leave only one processor there.

you may also wanna try other dk2 versions. Try my cracked 1.3 one, I used it especially for XP sp3.

well, if i could launch the game, there would be much less trouble...

the trouble is really that it only runs in the background for 1-2 seconds, then shuts down to desktop

That is true, but dont you get any error messages? If you do, this means that while the error message is on screen, the process is still being performed. At least thats how it was for me. Even if your unable to actually launch the game, you should be able to edit the process.

well, there was no error message. however i found a link to the DK2 silver edition iso on the forums. and it works well enough for me to play. once i take away the hardware acceleration anyway. thanks for the help anyway.
