I had the same problem. The way I got it fixed was to disable any AnitVirus software first, then reinstall your video card drivers, then reinable your AntiVirus. The vid drivers are messed up and AntiVirus programs block a full install of the vid drivers.

I just fixed this on my system about 30 minutes ago.

Get the latest Drivers for your card. Nvidia Cards > http://www.nviidia.com

The latest version is 66.93 ([color=red]Do Not Install....yet)[/color]

Open your Device manager. ([color=blue]Win 2k/XP - Right click on MyComputer > Properties.. Hardware Tab[/color]) Find Display Adapters and expand the submenu (+) ..... double click on your gfx card thats listed there. Goto Drivers and then Uninstall the Drivers. Restart your system ... Once the New Hardware Wizard boots up ... hit Cancel .. Locate the new drivers you just downloaded and install them. The whole uninstall process eliminates any possible problems that might occur with New file overwriting Old driver files... etc.

I was having the same problem. When you uninstall battlecraft vietnam to install the newest version you must manually delete the old cfg. file that is still in the folder. I do not think it has anything to do with video drivers. I just installed and it worked fine. The only problem I have is the sky is black.....they should make adjusting sky easier as with grass. just go into the old folder and delete the old files you do not need, but save the files that you do want...especially in game maps you want to reluse. deftond. :uhm:
