I am having a really serious issue with my UP3 installation. About three weeks ago, I attempted to log onto someone else server, via UP3, and my game suddenly would not start; up to that time everything had been running fine. I did notice, however, that when the selection menu pops up, it is bordered in red; had never seen that before. It wouldn't allow me to change any settings (selection menu pops up with "Stock Game", "128MB RAM" on the slider bar). The selection menu box will disappear from my screen after about 5 seconds, without me having to touch anything.
I have done clean installs of my game up to 4.101 (using my DVD), and all of those separate installs work just fine, save for not being able to get widescreen via JSGME (4.101). When I install UP3, it seems to install just fine, with no known errors.
To add insult to injury, I have a copy of the game on my laptop (well, not on my laptop, but an external hard drive that I connect to the laptop), just as a backup in case if problems. It will boot just fine in UP3 on my laptop, but will not work on my desktop system.
I have no issues with any of the other flight sims I have installed on my system (LOMAC-FC2, Falcon 4.0), but I'm beginning to wonder if I may not have a memory issue on my desktop. I'm at my wits end here; unfortunately it was a short trip, and I want to get this resolved. I love flying UP3 and would very much like to get it operating again. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all!
