Hi,

I recently BOUGHT (not torrented) Test Drive Unlimited for my computer and it doesn't work. Now, searching through google I found the solution at a torrent site, but that's only the solution. They say I need to disable the "Standard Game Port" in "Hardware Manager," whereas none of those exist.

My computer specs are:

Dell
Intel Core Duo @ 1.73, 1.73 GHZ
1 GB Ram
Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (which is what is ruining me)
40 + 10 GB Harddrive.

That's the thread.

Do any of you know where the game port is? Thank you

I would suspect that the standard game port would be found in your Device Manager (Start...Run...type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). I think it's located under Sound, Video and Game Controllers. Right click on it and select "Disable"

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, that was not the answer I was looking for. Here is what my screen looks like.

Well, if you don't have a game port in Device Manager, then you can't disable it. Looks like that isn't the fix for your issue.
Since I avoid torrents like the plague, I'd suggest waiting for someone with more knowledge of this to help out.
