OK, wow... Thanks for telling me. Didn't know that. Guess now what we really need here is some attention from GOG
. Because I can't see the reason why should we have broken version here, while the original retail one works fine.
I do have the original cds too. Same problem. Linus said that it's because of 64 bit systems. I tried everything fixing it. I've got nothing! Maybe our pcs use some kind of new hardware.
1) It's not the only source of crashes, but from my testing it could be a major one (I just got the opportunity to test a GOG build: same thing as the fan patches).
2) Linus doesn't know anything at all about running older games on newer systems. I told you specifically to forget you watched that video because it's full of bad misinformation. Develop some critical thinking skills and don't just listen to someone because they're a celebrity.
3) I'm running Dark Reign on high-end hardware without any issues. Hardware changes hasn't really done anything significantly compatibility wise since multi-core processors were introduced and then some minor issues with 4GB RAM&VRAM. Newer GPUs can cause compatibility issues with 3D titles, but Dark Reign isn't one.
