Does anyone know why motocross madness 2 (and also a few kids actionman games) goes black when it starts up the main screen??? I can see the logos but I can´t play cause I can´t see a damn thing.... The same happens with the actionman games (jungle storm and island X)
Has it anything to do with the Indeo codecs??

I tried the iv5setup and the indeo XP codecs, but nothing seems to help. I further think that it happens since the upgrade to SP1 from Windows XP prof.

My configuration:
Win Xp prof Sp1
Radeon 9700pro
newest video drivers
512 megs ram, P4 1.5ghz.

Please help!! My son is nagging my head off....

Thanks!!

OK, i've done everything that's in your thread before I posted the question here.
Microsoft has a patch for this problem, but that also didn't work.

What happens is that after the opening screens the game goes to the main menu. This is where it blacks out.
I can solve this problem by pressing the "Windows key" and going back into the game. My mouse pointer is then hidden, but with some difficulty I can play the game. Whenever I return to the main menu, again the game blacks out and I have to repeat the trick.
I can teach my son (5 yrs) to press the windows key and go back in, but I can't expect him to direct the hidden mouse pointer to the specific menu items.

So, any other suggestions are very welcome.

BTW, I don't seem to have a problem on a laptop with XP pro...
Maybe that helps....

Thanks....
