Okay,all.Here are the weekend testing results of getting Turok working.Besides the good news that the game starts and that most of the levels are playbable with a saved game,this game is pretty unstable,so be warned!Crash behaviour:
The first time the game crashs to desktop is when Turok gets thrown out of the ship onto the planet and looks around for his team mate *bang* there you go to continue with your desktop paper work.Another crash occurs after the ingame sequence of level 1 when the level actually starts.
I tried everything to get it working but its somehow not possible to spot the problem.It could be a problem with the missing SSE2 chip instruction sets in my system,a required 8xxx geforce card or equal fast ATI card or anything that is beyond reasonability.One thing is for sure,this game is unstable like hell!If you browse through the internet you can finds lots of hints related the same desktop crashs and strange programming behaviour.
Another issue which is currently unsolved is the blocked internet service for playing online.Neither LAN or Internet online play is possible at current.As i am not continuing with testing,this is to sum up and collect all the informations.
The good info is: You can play lots of levels when using saved games
