    I'm trying to play Sim City 3000 UK edition on my XP PC, it will install, load and everything but as soon as i get to the game play it will only work for around 5 minutes, then it'll kick me out and back to desktop withou any warning or anything? I've tryed all compatability modes, they don't make any difference?

    Welcome to TSG.

    Apparently there are patches available for it to run on XP but a lot of people say that they don`t work for them so perhaps that`s not a reliable route to go down. Here`s another couple of options ...

    Make sure you`ve updated the system through Windows Update as you may be missing a file or two that it needs.

    You could try running Virtual PC and install 98 SE in there.
