Some people are reporting the game crashing on hardware with 8MB video cards (or less), this has been most often reported with laptops. If you run the game on a machine below min-spec its likely to be too slow and/or unstable. Our min-spec is;

PII-300
64MB system memory
3DFX voodoo3 with 16MB on board

If any item in your system doesn't match this then you may have problems, same is possibly true if you have a card older than the 3DFX. Having at least 16MB of video memory is very important. The golden rule is, if the demo doesn't work then don't buy the full version.

here are a few more tips:
1. Don't run anything else when you run Starscape, it justs eats resources that Starscape probably needs.
2. Don't run the game in window mode except when working online i.e. registering or uploading high scores. When full screen Starscape has better access to system resources.
3. Make sure you have the latest drivers
4. Make sure you have the latest patches
5. Don't ignore this advice just because you have other games that are ok, each game is different.
