Well the same really. I haven't been able to find any solution to this despite the existing information on the issue.
Im under Xp.
I've installed NICE ver.11
I've shortened the path.
I have the latest patch.
I run Normal go and I still the friggin' error message.
I tried running DWNoctis (which works) and change the full screen properties on the shortcut icon but that didn't work either.

So...any leads?

It's funny because I remember downloading the Christmas version of NICE, and that worked perfectly, how so?

What does the error message say?
written by Verlynn on Jul 25, 2008 04:54
noctis.exe
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.

NTVDM errors are often caused by spyware; have you tried running AdAware/Spybot and your antivirus lately?

I do it every 3 days. I did it an hour ago.
Still the same.

It also says 16bit Ms DOS on the error message window. Now I know windows xp only runs on 32 bit,
thats what NICE is for right?

Windows XP can run 16-bit apps too, except if you got the windows XP 64bit edition, then it won't run anytrhing in 16-bit mode.

I never used NICE (only NIV vanilla) to explore the galaxy, ut try to run it through DOSbox or a similar emulator. Also if you have the CPU overclocked, try to set it at default speeds... older games somesimes are quite bitchy about overclocked CPUs.

also, if you post your comp's specs it would help a great deal.

Have you tried thrashing your autoexec.nt and config.nt files (or was it config.sys.. hmm.. Not sure anymore what XP uses for that) and replacing them with the .nt_ files that are on the WinXP CD? (rename autoexec.nt_ to autoexec.nt and copy it over)..

DOSBOX won't work. WAY too slow. Linux users can avoid all trouble and use DOSEMU or WINE though...

DWNOCTIS with --fullscreen needs a patchedversion of it which should be floating around somewhere...
