To obtain a current driver that is compatible with this version of Windows, please contact the manufacturer at http://indeo.ligos.com."

So I went to the Ligos site and found that I can get the codecs I need by buying Indeo XP for Windows, but frankly I don't want to spend the $US 15, especially since I'm not sure if the game will run even after I get Indeo XP or what other effects (if any) Indeo may have on my system.

Can anyone help? I'm afraid I don't know what version of DirectX I have or what kind of graphics card, nor even how to find out. I know nothing about this new Windows.

Thanks!
I do not believe the game will run properly in XP unless you edit the video files. Check thru the Tech Tips, there is a link for a site that will allow you to make the necessary changes.
