is there anyway to make it run decently on my machine (prolly @ 320*200 and no textures ;) )
i think u can use 640x480, just set most of the options to minimum.

According to the official recommendation :

minimum setting : cpu = 450. with 16m video card.
medium setting : cpu = 700. with 32m video card.
high setting : ?

I actually find there is a bigger difference between depths than in resolution, so instead of droppinf from 800x600 to 640x480 lower it to 16 bits

The exact same thing happened to me when I was playing. It suddenly quit saying I needed to lower the details or something. I've only tried it once though and only for a couple of hours. I was playing it at typical settings: 800x600x16 w/ 4xFSAA and medium details. I don't think my CPU or GPU were being stressed at all...

I ran it on Windows ME using the latest Detonator drivers (Detonator XP, v21.83). I don't have any problems in any of my other games so I assume it's something to do with the game engine.
