Omikron: The Nomad Soul: Problem running on WinXP SP2 and opening the Map freezes the game.

I had first played this amazing game on a Win98 system and reinstalled it on my WinXP PC on one of those ‘slow’ days.  Goings were not too smooth on WinXP.  Firstly, it appears that you need to use the US NoCD patch for the game to start properly, due to some SafeDisc issues. This patch can be downloaded from Secondly, the game sometimes freezes when map is accessed from player ‘sneak’. From my experience, it happens only when the power scheme selected is “Portable/Laptop” and this issue can be worked around by employing “Always On” power scheme from Windows Power Options.
