While missions are loading up, or while parts of missions are loading up, the game halts, and the music stops. Also, my computer stops completely. If you need tech specs, here they are:

It might be a scratched CD, but I'm going to diagnose that when I get offline... any and all help will be appreciated.

I increased the EMS/XMS to 32 MB... and the game works better now. It freezes from time to time still, but it's not quite as often.

heh... actually, it's ten times more playable in Windows DOS. I played it for five hours, and it didn't freeze once.

Now, why couldn't Prophecy have had missions like the first one in WC4, or the mission in Locanda in WC3 where you have the choice to rescue Flint.
