Yeah, I'm sure they totally overlooked that option.hardwork12 said:This would solve the customization of each disk issue and more quickly get the new software to us useres with this problem and at the same time get quicker feedback if there are still issues.
wedge said:well it looks like I am in the same boat as many as I have the Athlon XP 3000+
I cannot make head or tails if the issue has been resolved with the update others are mentioning in the previous posts.
Is there still an issue? Is this something that will be fixed when I call the support line?
Thanks if any one can provide an answer as I have one young kid who is massively bummed as we sit through the non-install as well as one big kid (me)

The support technician said they are very busy.
rc_sportpilot said:I received the updated disc today and installed it on my AMD Athlon XP 3000+. I installed all 5 addons first and then all 6 expansion packs in numerical order. The only hiccup I had was during the installation of expansion pack 4. Installation failed because of a decompress error, but I re-booted and was able to install it successfully the second time.

These settings are the result of 5 minutes of tweaking. If you someone has a better suggestion please let me know. With my Nvidia Geforce 7600 GS and the settings above, I am getting frame rates greater than 100 for the default sod farm.

I will log back and let others know when it arrives and hopefully based on rcpilots information I can be up and running...
guess it is time to upgrade my computer. I have this giant case so I will have to head over to zipzoomfly and get a shopping list of parts to gut the inside of this one
