Duke3D won't start under XP

I am trying to run Duke3D on a Win XP machine. Having carefully followed the instructions here:


I have found that it will not start, no matter what I try. My machine is an HP Omibook 6000 laptop (PIII-700, 512MB) running WinXP SP3.

When clicking the Duke3D pre-configured VDMSound shortcut, the script runs NOLFB as expected and starts Duke3D, however the game fails at the end of initialisation with a "divide overflow" and the command prompt closes.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks :cry:

DosBox is my standard answer now even though i don't use it. Those of us still stuck with under a gig of anything on our system specs find DB a poor solution I'm afraid.
