I can install it and play it but it says it cannot save my profile. Probably to do with the way Vista doesn't have My Documents anymore...

Anyways, does anybody know a way around this? I have a massive urge to pwn n00bs with a Supra.

have you tried running it under compatibility mode for XP? or have you tried running it as an administrator?, sometimes Vista denies programs access to the file structure if they're going to suspicious places - like My Documents ;)

cool :)

compatibility mode is actually pretty cool stuff, I can get loads of my excessively-old games working on Vista using it

Right click the game shortcut, go to compatibility tab and click "Run in Windows XP Service Pack 2 Mode"

There are other modes for other OS's too :p
