Default Demo Not Working :-(

I am tyring to run the Demo from my laptop, Windows XP (P3 900, 128 MB RAM, 32 MB Gforce 2Go Video). I tried changing my resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768 and finally to 1280,1024. I still get the same problem which is the screen is 'jumpy'. Best way i can describe the issue. I see the "Loading" screen just fine. But soon as the main menu pops up the screen jumps from side to side. Any suggestions?

This is the first time I've heard of the screen jumping side to side. The only thing I can suggest right now is to check for newer drivers for the video card. I've found that new video drivers usually fix unexplained graphics glitches like this.

The resolution that your desktop is set to has no effect on the Space HoRSE resolution, which is 800x600, and 640x480 for cutscenes.

Please keep me updated if you are able to update the video drivers.

Make sure you downloaded the demo today, the one from yesterday had some issues.

Umm someone please help me out here:

My Space HoRSE demo is not working. Period.

When I click on it, the app launches then nothing. Goes back to the desktop with nothing on the Task manager.

What's going on here?

Operating System: Your classic bread-and-butter Windows 98.

I downloaded it from the Demo link at the Space HoRSE feature here.

I also run 1028x768 at High Color 16 Bit.

I don't have a video card nor a sound card (My comp is pretty old.)

Also, it's an Intel 333Mhz (Got it when it was the fastest one on the block )

No sound card at all? Do you get any sound at all, or just beeps?

I have a feeling that you need to download DirectX8 from microsoft.
