Ultimate Hunt Challenge

Ultimate Hunt Challenge: game.run freezes once per reboot. If you kill it in the task manager then run it again - all works.
Can you please try to fix this?
Tnx.

When exactly? After clicking Hunt or after clicking Exit to system without saving?

Before 3dfx logo or after? Before loading screen or after?

No 3dfx logo.
No loading screen.
No briefing screen.
Just black screen.
Game.run loads (it appeared in the process list) but not started? And frontend.run not responds.
After I force close game.run - the game return to the main menu (and shows the loading screen in the process). And game.run loads correctly after this (3dfx logo, briefing screen etc). Until I reboot my PC.

This means the freeze occurs before 3dfx logo.

With your help I will try to trace an exact location of the freeze.
Please grab these test files and tell me what you see (of course don't forget to restart PC before testing each one of them).

P.S. In case you're wondering I'm asking these questions because the game works fine for me.

1 - "Unable to create main window", then returns to the main menu.
2 - black screen. No 3dfx logo, no taskbar.

I was sligtly wrong. The vanilla game not simply freezes, it shows the taskbar with 3 active tasks and the black background. Tasks are: Hunting (dhcse.icd), Ultimate Hunt Challenge (frontend.run) and game.run. So I can close game.run (right click and close) and re-run it again from the game main menu.

Now test third file three times (3 PC restarts).

3 - "Unable to Get Game Options From File Using Defaults" then same as the vanilla game.run.

More info:
1) All 3 renderers are affected. Software, d3d (ctd game.run module dx6z.dll offset 3216) and glide. All 3 work ok after I close game.run once.
2) Game.run uses renderers from the \drivers folder. They are different from the main game folder renderers (used with frontend.run). And there is no glide2x version (voodooz.dll). *Censored*.
3) I will test theis game on Vista Sp2 64-bit later.
4) About TeamViewer - again, later.
