Aha! So it's the old WinME/Nvidia splotch problem eh? One of these days I'm going to update to WinXP. Really. Had a similar problem with another game besides DD - and I remember it was always worse after a reboot of the pc. That may be my prob here too - I leave my pc on most of the day, but as it tends to accumulate programs running in the background, I usually reboot before gaming to refresh the system resources.
Lol, looks like something about that messes something up in this game. Go figure. I'll try that, and I'll try the code too if the other doesn't work.
I still wonder sometimes if there isn't a teeny tiny gremlin living somewhere in my comp.
Thanks for the help!
