old Microprose was sucked up by Infogrames, which turned into the resurrected Atari. which no longer offers support for Dark Earth the adventure game.

which won't run here with me. =(

this on top of getting an error when trying to install and run Soul Reaver 2 tonight as well.

I'm feeling a little dump-ish now. seen in contrast to my earlier post today, this should however not be construed as any bipolar symptoms on my part. not much, anyway.

ok, thing concerning the game soul reaver 2, try to get your hands on at least the first soul reaver before playing the 2nd one chapter of this series of games, it will let immerse you a bit more into the plot, which I think is a very nice one... do not expect too much of the scenario when it comes to being non linear, but it is really worth it, trust me!
One really nice ambiance in that game!

hey, I own the original soul reaver as well. played through that pretty soon after release. have tried Blood Omen too, which Soul Reaver builds upon. that's not the problem. the installation of this game SR2 is. well, not the installation itself, but the startup sequence. the eidos splash screen with "now loading..." comes up, then a "not found" error dialog box asking me to eject and reinsert the CD-ROM before restarting the program.

Eidos fortunately has a fair customer support service, it seems. darn irritating, though.
