Additional Comments

Go to the Scthack forum and follow the instructions to install the game. If you use the Vista fixed executable, you will be able to type without the need for IMM32.DLL. Game installs and works perfectly on the title screen. You can enter your account details, and select Start Game. The next screen tells you to press Enter, and the game crashes on blank screen here. This would be where the game silently attempts to connect to the patch server, fail to connect (in the case of the SCTHACK version) and show the character select screen. Tested in a virtual desktop, using a GeForce 7900 GTO 512MB using the 173.08 driver.
