Hi,
I bought this game called Riddle of the Sphinx, I can't get it to play. It brings up a window saying that I have a director player error filextra4 Script Error which says that the game Xtra (text) eiter does not exist or failes to intialize properly.It gives a list of files it lookinfg for, like Font DMXT files and color DM files. The requirements for the game is to have Windows 98, 2000, or XP, Pentium III, 128MB, 16 bit sound card and a video card 32MB Ram.

I have windows XP service Pk3, Celeron 2.80 GHZ,16 bit sound card , video card and 512MB Ram. I have some Xtra files stored in my hard drive. What am I doing wrong. Can you help me figure this out?
Thank you for what ever help you can give.

I too had the same problem. I have finally got the game to load by doing the following:
Create a folder called Xtras in the folder with all the ROTS files
Move all the X32 files into the new folder
Start the game
When I did this, it then asked where 3 different files were located.
Each time I had to open the folder Xdialogs and open the file with the closest name (they are not identical).
The game then proceeded and I was able to move around.
Right click opened up the other options, allowing save state etc.
Haven't gotten any further yet- but I was so frustrated by this situation I wanted to post this possible solution before going any further.

Hope this works!

HI I AM HAVING SOME TROBLE I BOUGHT SIMS 3 AND CANT PLAY


Get a video card as was recommended by EA. You have a PCI-E slot (also known as PCI-X or PCI-Express). You should be able to find one in the $80 range at any Best Buy or Fry's that will work.

Hi I'm having a problem with the pogo games on my computor. Everything comes in but up to where it says game loading and it stays like that for quite awhile,1/2 hr or so, in other words the game itself...


It's solitaire, play it alone with a pack of cards rather than put out the power company for that kind of drek!

Moreover, your OS is ancient and evil and 6/11ths of the problem. Get a modern OS and firewall and antivirus for a person of your abilities and interests, and you can connect to the internet, load a current version of the Flash player plugin, and you're fixed up much better.

I have a game which doesn't play on windows vista, i have acer aspire 3683wxmi laptop?


Is this some kind of problem for you? Vista is fierce serious! Perhaps it does something more disruptive than playing, though?

Hi, I have just recently purchased


Some of the games for windows games which support controllers are ridiculously finicky. Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge moto gp 07 is one of those. There may be a workaround pushed into an update somewhere though, so make sure your game is fully updated.
