    quote:Originally posted by R_wilco: I think the flux field near Mars leads to a Black Hole...enjoy the view for about 10 seconds I meant that I doubted I would be able to see them at all sense my real media player setup doesn't seem to be working with BCM. Since my last post I updated my Win98 with the latest patches from microsoft's site and reinstalled the game and real media player once more making sure there was nothing left behind from previous install in the filesystem. But I still get the same error.

    Ok. I reinstalled DirectX 8.1, Windows Media Player 7.1 and then the game (and the patch). I still get the "Failed(0x80004002) to set message drain..." as I described above. Again, this is on Windows 98. Missing the intro isn't a big deal, but I'd like to see the blackholes and explosions people have mentioned. Any other suggestions? Any other info I can supply?

I just installed 7.1 downloaded from microsoft's site (it was the highest available version I found). Checking add/remove it says I have windows media player 7.1. Running it and checking its 'about' help item shows the same version I mentioned above. Strange... I still get the same error. Can I provide any other information that would be of help? Forgot to mention... I uninstalled and reinstalled windows media player, installing everything except the skins, help and adaptec cd burning extension. Including all the codecs.

    Misc Issues

    This was addressed under the "PlayCutscene Error" topic, but it didn't resolve my problem. So to restate it... When I first start BCM I get the error: Failed(0x80004002) to set message drain for D:3000ADBattlecruiser Millenniumgfx3klogo.avi.This sample is designed to play videos, but the file selected has no video component. I have: -Windows 98 -DirectX 8.1 ( -Windows Media Player (I updated using the builtin method). -ATI Radeon DDR 64MB -Athlon 1.1Ghz -384MB RAM I've tried re-installing and have applied the patch. I can play the video in question fine directly from windows media player. The game runs fine otherwise.
