This happened a couple years ago to me, so I used the deviance cracked file. That fixed it. Then last week, they stopped growing again. I have the CDs, the originals, but they are too scratched up. I've seen various recent posts about this, use a "no cd" crack, or "get a legit copy", and I haven't figured it out yet... but I know one thing, that the users on this site, with all the fan files they make, I'm am sure some of them are using ISOs instead of CDs. Would love to get past land 3, so if any coders have the inclination to share their copy that works, my email is [email protected] ... would be much appreciated. :help
