You have alot of options. 1) Does your pc meet the requirments to run it? 2) The PC may be wondering why are you playing a baby game? (Joke) 3) Make sure your PC isn't damaged 4) Try using windows update to update your computer. 5) Turn off your antivirus.
Forgive me, but I remembered that Sonic the Hedgehog a rather very old program, which is designed to be running in Windows 9x/ME. I bet that's why it's demanding an MCI driver because it's not compatible with Windows 7.
There are 2 solutions for this.
First choice is you can try to use compatibility mode to run this program. Right-click on the .EXE file of the games (or you can use also right-click on the shortcut on Desktop or Start menu), then go to Compatibility tab, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for", then choose "Windows 98 / Windows ME".
Second choice, you can use VirtualBox, install Windows 98SE or ME on it, and then install the DirectX, remember to install VirtualBox guest addition as well, configure Shared Folder so your Virtual Machine can access to your host OS, then install the game and played it inside your Virtual Machine.
I hope my solutions are working. Thanks for using FixYa!
I thought my game was faulty also but it isn't and I am playing it fine.
Do this.. Power on your DS. Click Start on the sonic picture. Click English. Click games. Click your game choice. Once loaded and you see demo begin click the start button on your DS....enjoy the game :)
Sometimes things like this are much simpler than they seem, but since the problem appears so severe, it freaks you out. I'm assuming since you didn't state it that you haven't tried many if any fixes at all. So I will start with one of the most basic ones.
First try checking the settings on the video options for your video card... "display options" or the geforce console.. if you are using anti aliasing... what setting is it on? 2x? 3x? Other than that, try using the lowest video settings for the game and see if it still does the same distortions/freezing. if not, your settings may have just been too high, gradulally ease them up to the highest setting you can without it having problems during loading.
If none of that works.. try the following options.
1. Try re-installing the games themselves.
2. Try rolling back your video driver.
3. Try updating your video driver to the newest possible version.
Its the third party card. they are so ****.
it happened to me.
you wont get the data back. you will have to reset the card.
just get a sega card and itll be fine.
dont worry, sonic adventure 2 is so addictive youll get to the level you were at in no time.
