Twinsen problemaitc with ATHLON processors
I found other BUG, that i think you can easy solve, because someone already has the source or part of it(the game)
I will relat it for you, and if you can help-me, thanks.
I have one Athlon processor, and the twisnen recognize my processor like Pentiun 2 processor or pentiun PRO.
So, the game run fine, but when i go to underground city in twinsen game, or in the wizard house(in the top of moutain), the game crashe with one ilegal access to memory(everytime the same place in memory). I think, that is probably because the game are using some instruncions that are not avaliable in ATHLON arquiteture, just in Pentiun 2(some old games require intel). I like of try play the game FORCING it to recognize the processor like one single PENTIUN or 486 maybe. I am usign windows 2000SP4, and with path of twisnen.
Is important to informat that the game craches with the original version of twinsen too(without the GEFORCE PATCH), in the same place(with image bad).
I try use too the sound emulator, but the game continue to crashes.I try use dosBOx, but the game become VERY SLOW!
My memorys are perfect.
There, the adeline.log file.

I think that forcing the game to try use older processor it will work without problem.

I'm too lazy to read the whole lot, but I have an AMD Athlon 1800+ and it runs fine over here :-/

I also have AMD. The game detects my processor as Intel (identical to yours), and the game is ok. Czeck if you don't have your CD scratched, try to reinstall the game (because terrain/building files are copied to disk during installing, not loaded from the CD).

Czeck :D LoL Zink, Polska mowa, piękna mowa ;)
I also have an AMD processor, both LBA1 and 2 run fine, without dosbox. You could try VDMsound - it's a neat program, however I don't know if it works with LBA.
