You also need to say that if you have installed the Windows 7 operating system and if you have a multicore processor, the game will certainly slow down and hang. Perhaps this problem is related to the optimization of the game under this operating system.
First, it is best not to change anything in the directories of the game, and just update the driver for your video card and sound card. Best still update DirectX .NET Framework and XLiveRedist to the latest version. It is possible that even after these simple manipulations the game will work fine, but in that case, if she still continues to hang, you need to enter certain codes in a special file of the game.
