NBA Live 98 on Windows 7 crashes on start screen

Postby daire on Sat Sep 06, 2014 2:11 am

I have downloaded nGlide and started the game as 3DFX and also changed the compatibility mode but the just crashes every time the ea logo appears. Any suggestions?

If you've got Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise, you can try installing Windows XP Mode and running the game there. If you happen to have an XP installation disc - or even better, Windows 98 - you could also set up a virtual machine with VMWare Player.

Any video game crashes at Windows XP Mode. It's for programs that work in Windows XP, not games.

Try using VMWare Player.

VMWare is virtual machine software. You'd need an XP disc to create a virtual machine and install Windows XP on it.

An original version of XP is the only solution that we'll support here; please see our Rules for more information on that policy.

Run the Windows XP virtual machine, install NBA Live 98 there, play NBA Live 98. You'll probably want to install the official patch as well.

That's the one.

You should be able to copy it across to the XP installation in VMWare by dragging and dropping the file, but if you run into any problems, just download it from within the virtual machine.
