Try update drivers, redistributables maybe, also try change mode, i mean DirectX or OpenGL, and tell us your pc specs please.

Change your motherboard/processor. Some old processors doesn't support new instructions.

For example CC won't run on Athlon 3200+ because it only supports MMX, SSE, 3DNow! but it will work on Intel Pentium 4 because it supports MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3.

It looks like CC needs processor which support SSE2 / SSE3.

You can't get Carnage Contest to work without changing computer/processor. DC could make it work for older instructions but he's to lazy or he has to much work to do, or he just don't know how to fix it.

@user mafia_man: It's programmed in BlitzMax. It's probably a problem caused by BlitzMax if it doesn't work because of the CPU and there is no way for me to fix it (besides reprogramming the game completely in another language).

I really don't think that it is the CPUs fault though.

I think its a fault caused by video card, if i was user jose antonio costa behnke, i would ask some friends to give me another video card with better performance to check it out.

btw: i think user EP have the same problem, and quite funny thing:

@user Nem: I didn't say it works fine on Debian OS , it works pretty slow on it, that's because I don't have video card (I haz onboard).

That's older than my dinosaur rig that I haven't used for 8 years, bro.

I really don't think that it is the CPUs fault though.

I had PC with Athlon 3200+, and after CC update it stopped working. Few months later I changed motherboard with processor to Pentium 4, and the error gone.

And you're right it may be caused by BlitzMax, maybe there was update which changed something instructions releated during working/not working version.

Also if it works on Linux Debian 6.0 like for Blairstring, that's because DC's BlitzMax linux version is probably outdated.
