    I've been trying to install Enter the Matrix but it keeps saying Component transfer error when I'm installing from the first CD. It says:
    Component Transfer error

    Component: Default component
    File group:
    File:
    Error: Catastrophic Error

    I have Win xp sp1, 256 Ram, nVidia Geforce 2 MX400
    What's wrong?

    I'm going to guess that this is a problem with your registry. Get a program that will clean out bad files in your registry. (TweakXP, Tune Up Utilities) If you've ever backed up your registry, I'd suggest re-loading it. Otherwise, I have no clue.

    I will help you...

    ...do not install it! You may think I am joking but I am not. It is the biggest heap of smelling [email protected] this side of a sweage plant. I picked up a used copy to catch the extra elements of the film but the game is bad...probably without a doubt the worst game I have ever played. It is amazing that they could do that much mocap and it look so mechanical.

    But if you are determined, have tried here?

    Have you tried tech support?

    Did you try the registry cleaner (JV16 Powertools my recommendation) suggestion above? And then re-install your video drivers?

    It's true, Enter The Matrix is the biggest waste of space ever (3.2GB, actually). Everything about the game is crappy, don't even bother.

    ...what it really is, is extra footage that should have been on a collectors edition of Reloaded for $10-$20 dollars but instead is wrapped in a bad game and sold like hot cakes for $49.99. Bahhh!!!

    I didn't ask for a comment on the game. I'm asking for an explanation for this annoying error. Besides I've played it on PS2 but had to return it early and didn't get to finsh it. And it's quite a good game to me except that last stage. Probably we just have different taste?

    Fair enough...did any of the suggestions help?

    Also, if you ETM have you tried Max Payne 2 or Blood Rayne?

    Na, I am waiting for a new Matrix mod for Max Payne 1 where you can play as Neo or Trinity and the graphics in the screenshots are very realistic : http://hellskitchen.paynereactor.com/

    I copied all the files from all 4 discs to my hard drive and it still shows that message when it's less than 25% complete, so I'm guessing it's not the CD, it's probably a CAB file.
