Another one for MM9 and Win 7 freeze issue

    I swear I got this to run on Win 7 years back. I have the GOG version but also an older disc copy(the cd used to work). Both have the freeze issues between menus. I have tried it all, compatibility/admin modes, the DLL fix, reloading direct 9.0c, cracking it (I do own it, lol), re-patching up to 1.3a etc. The DLL fix is interesting as it brings back the loading screen with boat animation but gets stuck there. Underneath I can hear the game sounds and it seems the menus work as intended but I just can't see anything. Well, I just wanted to post to see if there is anything else I might have missed, thanks.

This reminds me of an old children's playground game called 'Hot Potato'. Do you have it in the UK?

I can't say we don't have it, but it's not in my memory.

There's only a bit more I can add to the info below....

    The GOG version is the Ubisoft version, not the original. There are a few differences, most importantly the game engine. All of the fan-made fixes were based on the original game. Some (IIRC) will work equally well on both versions. The TELP patches will not.

    It sounds like your game is failing to switch video control back to lithtech.exe. One of the steps in that process isn't working. Presuming that you have changed the compatibility and permission settings of 'lithtech.exe' as well as 'mm9.exe', I'd suggest that you un-install and re-install from your copy of the original, fix permissions and compatibility, apply your crack, fix the DLL, and see if the game runs. If it does, then apply the TELP 1.3a patch. If not, then the problem is either with the graphics drivers or the registry.

    I did read about the issue with the 2d/3d engine not handing off properly. The GOG forums also have been a help. One guy got the game running correctly in a Windowed mode. I haven't quite thrown in the towel so I will try again. Thanks for the help.
