FS 2002 Wont load

Finite Guest

Hey guys,

I have installed FS2002 and when I click on the desktop shortcut all that happens is a command window pops up very briefly then closes, the game doesnt go to the splash screen or anything. Ive tried with anti virus off and firewall ive tried running fro, the directory to no avail. Ive tried reinstalling on another drive also. Any ideas?

Hey guys,

Thanks for the responce. I sorted the issue. I needed to uninstall the program and perform a clean restart, then reinstall the game. Unfortunatley now I have a new problem 🙄

The game loads to the splashscreen however freezes at 25% while loading the scenery. Any Ideas on this one?

Thanks in advance
