NON-MMORPG, Vista Problems

Dedicated to the discussion of games that are not MMORPGs.

NON-MMORPG, Vista Problems

Postby Wighar on Wed May 30, 2007 3:03 pm

On first hand tests that I have done during my test phase, I noticed some games may react with errors or some sudden faults.
As a precaution I think it would be suitable to make a listing of Games you might have encountered problems with, or maybe you have a sollution to one such listed or for future listing that you allready have information on.
Post them after the reserved posts, please be clear on understanding that this will ONLY issue the problems you have had with Games in Windows Vista.

Curently Listed games:

Not yet applied

Please do post Links to Sites with potential error sollutions.

NOTICE
Non-members, do you have any Game you might have had problems with that can help your fellow visitor and the forums members. please mail these to me directly on Wighar@Thesecondsun.org and I will add any information you can provide
notification on mail Thesecondsun.org Email addresses are for support purposes only.

Battlefield 2
Problem: O/S restriction error (punkbuster)
resolutions: 1

-) from Wighar
RMB on desktop icon, go to Preferences and under the compatible tab choose Run this program in compatible mode for "Windows XP (service Pack 2)" also check "Run this program as a Administrator" under Privleges. this should stop the Punkbuster from warning for O/S Restriction, *it might work without the compatibility change.


Problem: Random Graphical Freeze
resolutions: 1

-) from Wighar
Change all graphics to low, set Audio settings to Hardware and quality to medium or minimum, inactivate VoIP, and only play on low ping servers for best effect.

Battlefield 2142
Problem: BF2142 Can not find the DVD
resolutions: 1

-) from VRG ADMIN on vistareadygames.com
For the game to read the disc you have to right click on the icon go to comatability and make sure it is not set on XP service pack 2 or anything like that.. It has to be set to Vista.. also make sure you are running as administrator...

If you run Windows Vista on your machine please post here on games that are or have been a problem, even if its been easily solved or just needed to be set with compatibility.

Please do Add Hardware Information as well, it might give more info on the problem then expected :)
