After reading numerous good things about playing XGM with the BI or Alex .exes I was delighted to find the pair of them going cheap in my local software emporium.
I bagged both and have installed them, but I notice that the budget version of BI appears to install already patched to 1.6. Whether or not this in itself is a problem I don't know, but I can't run the XGM installer because it tells me that it needs RTW1.5 or BI1.6 (ie it doesn't recognise I have BI1.6 installed). I know RTW is at 1.3 but BU is definitely 1.6. I've tried downloading the BI 1.6 patch but it just tells me it can't find the .exe when I run it (presumably because it's already at v1.6?).
I've also uninstalled all 3 games, manually deleted the Activision folder and then performed a clean reinstall to no avail.
So in a nutshell I currently can't play XGM through either the BI or Alex .exes.
Anyone got any ideas?
