script error. continue?

I am running a Pentium 3 with 700 mhz and a little over 200 megs of ram.
I have a 15 gig, and a 9 gig hd. I am currently running windows xp. I only have 24 bit color, because of Windows XP.

What could be the problem

You NEED 32 bit color to run alamdv. Windows XP has no effect to that...

Here is something written by schwar saying how you need 32 bit color

Windows XP has nothing to do with the colour depth. Windows 98 could handle 32-bit colour, so XP certainly can! The problem lies with your graphics card, which must be quite old as 32-bit has been the standard for years now.

You can pick up graphics cards that support 32-bit colour fairly cheaply these days. As stated in the requirements, AlamDV2 won't run without it.

Your computer probably has some kind of onboard intel graphics chip which will be the main problem. Upgrading to even a cheap $40 nvidia AGP Graphic Card will improve graphics performance in games and give you the 32bit colour needed to run AlamDV2.
