Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

Has anyone succesfully ran Star Trek Generations in Windows XP? I can get it to start, but it only shows the load screen, and the first part with the stellar cartography. After I scan the Amargosa station, it crashes.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

Hi guys I need help badly! After a long search for Klingon academy I finally got my hands on it over the weekend. I have windows xp I have installed the game all loads up lovely started the training mission gone through most but then the game crashes as soon as I have to attack a ship that can defend its self. I have downloaded and installed the patch still has the same problem.

Help please! It’s the only trek game I have never played!

Make sure your running it in compatibility mode, right click the Klingon academy short cut once and select compatibility and pick 98/ME.

Does anyone know how to get Star Trek Borg and Star Trek Klingon working on XP? I've tried out both games, and all I get is a black screen. The audio plays fine, but the video is a no go. I've tried compatibility mode to no avail.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

I would like to be able to run New Worlds in win XP pro, but I get the same problem I'm sure that everyone else does, click on the start mission button ( or whatever button it is to start a mission ) and then it freezes. Anyone know of a fix...

Okay, I'm trying to get the ancient Star Trek: Klingon to load up in xp, but all I get is audio and a black screen. Anyone succeeded in getting it to run in XP?

I've tried w/2k-ME compatibility and 98 compatibility and no luck, somewhere else told me that the problem was because my processor was too fast, but I can't over/under-clock it.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

Have you tried turning down the graphic acceleration? That's just a shot in the dark, but it's worth a try.

I tried turning off all the accelerations, as well as installing it on a virtual partition of WIN98SE but still no luck. Any ideas

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

The only thing I can tell you is that I have access to two computers, both with Windows XP. One is much newer, with better graphics card and memory and all that stuff, and the other is much older, and most games made in the last couple years don't work great because of the chumpy graphics card. I installed it on the new computer, and it crashed just like you said, and then I installed it on the second one (the older one) and it works perfectly. I'm really not sure what that means exactly, but maybe that'll give you some clues. Good luck!
