I've got a little stupid problem...

If I start the game on OS XP(SP3) I only see the blackscreen opening ("INTRO"-LOL) then it turns into a like of grey such as "HIGH GAMMA" and then I've got a crashreport message from the explorer...???

I've got load up the newest DXDIAG for experienced users there:

>rapidshare.com/files/245173607/DxDiag.txt

Coreclock is @ 3,0Ghz and the 8800 GTS is overclocked too.

BUT... and that's very funny... and of cause the terrible thing, that the game is running under OS Vista?!
The drivers are not the newest there... but I've got no problems to start it?! It takes a few seconds untill the game starts, but IT STARTS...?!

I've got the original version of the game and tried of cause the crack - sometimes ... don't ask me why, the games are running not with the original exe... but the game version is although the original?(->Without any words... it has to be the "ghost or mind in the maschine"... lol.) I talk not about more than 2 games, wich have that problems, but they are still present.

PLS don't say things like "reinstall drivers" if I'ld an answer like that, I had asked "MICROSOFT" about that problem ! And of cause - I'm disperately enough - so I tried out... no comment, pls. And... yes I tried the reinstall of the game too... and yes I've cleaned the registry "before" I had installed again... I will not go too much into detail, so everyone should know how the tryout works .

If someone have over all that idears wich could help me - then pls try to help me... - I don't like Vista @ ALL!

Staying desperatly - cybercore - bye

-> As you could see in the DxDiag.txt, probably not - I'm using the v185.85 driver for my videocard . But under Vista the older one... ok, I tested the older driver at Windoofs too... I've made an update after the first gamecrash, so I thought that the problem lies on the driver, but how it show us - THAT WAS WRONG! - I've no more explanations for this, sry. The game believes to crash again and again...???

Ok, I tell you some system settings if you don't find the entries in the dxdiag.txt:

I used to get that exact same issue with one of my games a long time ago.
The cure was this;

1: Download (but don't install, yet) the latest Nvidia drivers - WHQL preferred)

2: Load a driver cleaner (eg - Driver Cleaner.NET)

3: Un-install the OLD Nvidia driver.

4: Run the driver cleaner next. ALWAYS do this as it cleans out any 'remnants' of the old driver. It's 100% recommended!

5: Install your new driver.

Problem solved.

Tanks a lot!

I'll try it! But one thing keeps me skeptical... why do the game running with the old version of gfc driver on my OS Vista??... I don't understand that... but I'll uninstall all the drivers and reinstall the newest, and try it again... maybe, that was the solution and I can finally copy the savegame files to my XP directory... how wonderful that would be... amazing - absolutely amazing!


by the way:
"For all of you, wich figure out the same problem and only could find the program wich is "now" not any more for free, look there: www.chip.de/downloads/c1_downloads_hs_getfile_v1_16098142.html?t=1245173724&v=3600&s=34ec37ed2dbb60e7f1e92cf3dc273159 and you'll find the free version of the program ;-)!"

HOW NICE!... It Works now... the drivers were the problem... HaHa, finally I can play on XP - nice, very nice! AND thx again and absolutely!
