    Nope, I'm pretty sure that the game is broken on Windows XP. I've tried to get it working, but had no luck.

    Well, knowing EA, they aren't going to change that anytime soon.

    it's not broken, you just need a patch. patch the game and it will work just fine :)

    it's been a while since I played it, but I did when I first moved to XP and had the same problem. There is a patch out there somewhere, you've just got to find it ;)

    A patch? When was it released? I haven't seen such a thing.

    Must have been recently.

    it still doesnt work with compatibility mode for me that was the first thing i tried.
    also you may want to turn caps lock off cos your post was fairly hard to read because of the caps

    Thats odd. NFS3 installed fine on my XP Home (no compatability needed, no nothin) and it runs great, but the graphics that are in that game, which is getting old, dont look good to me anymore, like compared to Hot Pursuit 2 and Underground, NFS3 looks like s**t.
