    Getting sound but no video with new HP computer
    The new HP computer has a special 3D version of this game bundled with it to show off what your video cards can do. This machine does have two video cards and they must be connected correctly for the 3D video to appear. You will want to contact HP to make sure that all cords on the back of the machine are connected correctly.
    All OTHER known problems should be corrected by installing the Whiplash Patch (470k).
    To install the patch, download the file to the directory you installed Whiplash to, use pkunzip (29k) to extract the files, From Windows95 - Double click on the "Wpatch1" or "Wpatch2" file, From Dos - Either type "Wpatch1" or "Wpatch2"

    This patch will fix the lock up that has occurred when specific older video drivers were used. This patch disables the Hi-res mode that causes this lock up.

    If the Wpatch1 file does not work, try the Wpatch2 file. Wpatch2 disables the high-res Interplay logo that has been identified to cause problems with Certain video cards.
