Hi all, thanks for the help in advance.

I bought creatures exodus a few days ago from Amazon, and went to install it this evening. The first time I ran it, I got this error message:

NLE0001: 'Main Directory' setting not found.

Windows NT/2000 6.0 build 6002 (Service Pack 2) OriginalDisplay DirectX (no modules) Sat Jul 31 02:52:16 2010 - Josh - 2.296

And the game didn't even try and start after that.

Upon doing some research online, i found that I was missing the machine.cfg. I found a copy of it, and copied into my creatures directory. Now when i start creatures3, it just hangs at a black screen. I'm running vista, 32bit, and I've changed the color settings, ran it in compatibility mode, as an administrator, anything I can think of for general 'old-game' trouble shooting. Anyone have any advice?
