Okay, so I install the game, and whenever I play a game, the game looks like this: lijerdq.jpg 4o1hjka.jpg It sort of flickers between this tan thing, and the normal textures. I'm running the game with a GeForce 4 MX 440, all setting set to full.

Eww. :uhm:

I believe that your video card is supported, though it's also kind of old (but the game is too). Perhaps your drivers are outdated?

I had the same problem yesterday, I had installed the latest drivers 91.47 and it was fine for all games exept wolf ET I got the same as you, I uninstalled them and installed an older driver 84.21 and all is now fine.

Really? Damn, I don't really want to reinstall older drivers, since I don't think Steam would work properly.

Thanks for the help. Damn you nVidia!

I have a Geforce 6600GT and even I use older drivers. The newer drivers drop my fps to 30 :/

I use version 81.98 now, fps over 100+ again. It not really a must to use the latest drivers with older videocards.

Steam should work fine with older drivers it does for me, Counter Strike source, Day of Defeat source all run well, as *NL|Pure points out the latest are not always the best, try older drivers and if you don't like them put the latest back on.
