    Perhaps the game isn't supported by Crossover. Not everything works in Crossover. If you bought it, you could ask them for an answer.

    Strange that you have problems using bootcamp. I've installed it on numerous systems for different people and have yet to get the first complaint! What are the problems that you are experiencing?

    well one of them is that it keeps showing me a "disk reading error" ,so i copied from the CD i had and burned a new one but boot champ did not recognize it as a window CD although it was bootable

    Yeah, it may be that CrossOver just flat out won't run the game. That's not a supported title, I'm pretty sure. You can try some tricks when you install it, like installing it into different flavor bottles (Win95, Win98, XP, etc.), and see if any of them will run it. Some applications that have a browser component (dunno if this game does; probably not) also like to have IE installed in their bottle *before* they are installed. That's kind of the shortlist of tricks, though. After that, you have to get really fancy, and being the marketing guy here at CodeWeavers, "fancy" does not well-describe my level of technical moxie.

    Best Wishes,
