When I go to start it (the expansion) up, everything goes fine, it shows the little Infogrames thingy, then the Cyberlore one, then my screen turns black, and I have to press the little reset button on my comp, 'cause I can't get away from the black screen, and ctrl + alt + del just restarts.
Can anyone help? Thanks.

Ouch. That's a nasty one. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling? That's the only thing I can think of.

Anyone else?

My guess is the MP3 music files are giving your computer fits. I think Spiderman said something about the music files in a long ago post and how to fix it.

No, that wasn't me. I think Goldy covered MP3 files for XP or something.

I just mentioned the shortcut "-nocdaudio" to keep the music from playing and the game accessing the CD drive all the time.

He hasn't supplied us with any of his system information. With a black screen I am less likely to suspect MP3 problems and more likely to suspect video driver or directx problems. But, with limited information I don't have anything better to suggest than Steven already has.

Heh, sorry. I'm running it on Windows 98SE. I have DirectX 8.0 at the moment.

With the black screen, how long do you wait until you press Ctl-Alt-Del?

You might either have to upgrade your video drivers or downgrade them...
