Hi Liam, The one nice thing about using sapi for games is that you can get input from the player. You know like their name etc and the game can then say it. And of course with recorded speech that and things like the golf courses and trivia files that people have created would not be

Hi Richard, May I ask, do you get that error as soon as the game starts or right after the kickoff? If it is as soon as the game starts it might be that something is missing such as DirectX 8.1 or better. Or maybe the VB6 run time libraries that would get installed with the winkit.zip
