Default Game wont load after Emergence logo

Does anyone else have these issues?? I have an AMD 2400+ 1 Ghz ,GEforce 5200 video card .. I am using XP Pro but I have also tried Win 98.. and I cannot get this game to play. I have the latest video drivers.. and yet when I click on the Emergence game. I see the GEforce Intro. Then the Emergence Intro. And then the screen simply sits on the logo. What am I doing wrong or what else do it need?? Thanks. i also DO have Zone Alarm as well as Norton. but i have turned off Norton. only leaving Zone alarm on and i stil get the logo and it never moves past this. i get no error. it just stops... one other thing.. i installed the game from DVD but had to go to Steam to download the game. it all went fine. but it just does not work.

Does the whole program freeze? Zone Alarm might be freezing it, I used to have that plague of a program and HL2, CS:S, DoD:S etc. would always freeze when I started them. Try turning off Zone Alarm.

Yes it sounds like Zone Alarm, try turning it off. and not setting "Game Mode", just disable it, try running the game, to prove it is that which is interferring.

ok well i DID turn it off and aparently it IS zone Alarm. but i do not want to not have a Firewall up. so how can i configure Zone Alarm to accept this?? i mean all the other programs ask permission and i give it. but this one never asked. .it just does not work. so does anyone know how to configure it?? thanks again.

Programs Menu, Add Program point to

C:\program files\steam\steamapps\username\Sin Episodes Emergence

select SinEpisodes.exe

and select Allow connect to internet and act as server

or

properties on the game, click advanced options and type "-window"

run the game, it will run in a window, and you should see Zone Alarm pop up and you can Allow and Remember Setting.

Good Luck
