Messiah problems

Bought Messiah. Cheap. Messiah has issues with my computer. that should sum things up enough, so let’s get down to business

At first the game would only start in safemode, until I remembered to turn on the Win 98 emulation feature of XP. Then it worked without a problem for two hours until I got an unexpected crash to desktop. No big deal, I’d had enough gaming for the night anyway. I start up the game the next day, load up my latest save file…only to have Messiah quit on me, just like it did on startup before I turned on emulation.

Help is needed.
