Pharaoh and cleopatra freezes constantly


Probably a bit late, but here are the best fixes I found:

First off, you want to:
*** Change compatibility to Windows XP (SP3)
*** Disable Visual Themes
*** Run as admin

Next you want to:

Download the pharaoh exe files (these are for modifying the resolution - this is what worked for me - I used the lowest res available, so I cannot comment on higher ones)

http://www.wsgf.org/dr/cleopatra-queen-nile/en

Or you can try this fix:
https://web.archive.org/web/20080721084339/http://www16.brinkster.com/salvage/thief/imagecfg.zip


"Download ImageCFG
Extract the .zip and place imagecfg.exe in your game's folder.
Create a batch file. First, open up notepad and paste the following.

@echo off
if not exist Pharaoh.exe goto end
if exist Pharaoh.exe.bak goto end
copy Pharaoh.exe Pharaoh.exe.bak
imagecfg -u Pharaoh.exe
imagecfg -a 0x1 Pharaoh.exe
pause
:end

Save as a .bat file and place it in your Pharaoh installation folder.
Run the batch file.

This will change the CPU affinity of Pharaoh so it will run on one CPU core."

When i start Axis and Allies the screen flashes for about 15 seconds and then an error screen comes up that says that "the game tried to turn the resolution to 1024/768 but couldn't so it changed it back...


When I try to play Axis and Allies cd-rom '98 it's like the screen is too small for the game because there is no buttons or anything that allows me to end my turn. My monitor is pretty big too.

I don't what the problem is.


Firstly have you considered it is the game? try restalling

If that doesnt work, it is most likely your video card. dxdiag into run and click all the run test buttons you can see.
Update video drivers and try installing to a different pci slot.

It may be the video cards ram instead of your pcs ram.
but check the pcs ram is compatible.

Image freezes


My computer freezes every time I use my camera. What can I do?
trnsp.gif Answer Normally if a camera freezes after a few seconds, it is related to the USB chipset you are running. Some chipsets do not have enough bandwidth to support a camera. Make sure you are plugging the camera directly into the computer while testing and unplug any other USB devices you may have except a keyboard or a mouse.
To resolve the issue, we recommend using the USB troubleshooting steps detailed in Troubleshooting USB Issues.
If you have the same issue but do not have the USB chipsets discussed in the document, please make sure you have the latest version of the Logitech camera software AND the latest version of DirectX.
You may also want to slow down the hardware acceleration. To do this, right click on the desktop and choose Properties. Click on Advanced/troubleshoot. Lower the hardware acceleration, apply any changes and try the camera again.
If you are running Windows XP, please make sure you have the latest sound card, video card and Windows XP updates. You can get the sound card and video card updates from the card manufacturers or PC manufacturers web site. You can get the Windows XP updates from Microsoft. With the release of any new operating system, we suggest that you check for updates to the operating system and hardware drivers. These updates can resolve many video streaming issues.
