I instaled the movies and tried to run it, it would start to load up then crash to desktop just as the starting screen would show up. I re-booted and tried 3 or 4 more times. Eventually I just uninstalled it and tried again.

The problem now is that when I run the cd it doesn't ask if I want to install the game but if I want to PLAY it.????

No matter what I do, search for files left behind by the first Movie instal etc, it wont instal the game and keeps on insisting its already installed?

Any ideas?

Do you have an AMD processor?  If so, you may just be screwed.  

Update your drivers is the only other immediate advice I can give you.  There is much discussion on the Lionhead boards about this issue.

Haven't heard anything like that Dreamshadow - I run only AMD processors.

As for this behavior, I know that it will do this if you don't have T&L enabled on your video card.  Unfortunately I see it on my laptop any time I tried to play it. (Which is an Intel chip btw)

1.4 Athlon
512mram
Geforce 3

Now the game allows me to hit the "instal" button but then asks if I want all the games files deleted with the "un"instal...???

This is the weirdest thing....
