i am having some trouble with Carmageddon II Carpocalypse Now. i have made a successful back up of this game which is protected by SafeDisc v1.00.026 on the CD and by SafeDisc v Safedisc 1.01.034 when the game is installed and the patch has been applied. i can start the game and play it okay. but when I exit and try to go back into the game I get this error:
This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.
If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.
i clicked on details and this is what it has in there:
CARMA2 caused an invalid page fault in

it happens whether I have the original CD or the copy I made in my CD-ROM drive (Sony CDU4811, 48x), which I used to rip the image off the CD and which I use to play the game from the burnt disc. so i don’t think it’s the CD that’s the problem. i use an LG CDRW/DVD combo drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4521B (52x32x52x 16x DVD) to make backups of my games.
any idea why this error would be happening? the only way I have found to get back into the game is to restart my computer, and that is very annoying.
my sys specs:
Windows 98 SE (4.10, Build 2222) B
AMD Duron Processor, MMX, 3DNow, 700MHz
NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro 32 MB RAM
VIA AC’97 on board audio
i also have an old sound blaster card in my computer which i use when playing old games like this.
