Hi.

I've just downloaded the 3 part download form of Forgotten Hope, and I've run into a problem: on XP settings and without, every map crashes before it can load. I downloaded and installed the 1st 2 parts from Filefront and the 3rd part from Fileplanet after the 3rd part from FF didn't work.

Anyone else got advice or had this happen?

I tryed Vista as well and talked to several people, sadly it does not play well with FH. For me it would not run even when useing the proper shortcuts. Some people can get it running it as admin and editing your shortcut. WOLFGaming.net

Right, FH on Vista WORKS.

You do need to run it 'as Administrator' and you do need to run it in compatability mode for Windows98/ME.

This is confirmed with the recent NVIDIA drivers and an 8800GTX :

ForceWare Release 158 Version: 158.24 Release Date: June 1, 2007 WHQL Driver

No missing crosshairs, menus or anything, it works just fine.

Same problem... The map loads and then the game crashes to the desktop. This happens in any game mode. I have tried the settings you recommended, and it still doesn't work... I have Vista Home Premium and an nVidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 video card. Here's a screen of my current settings:

Make sure you have the most recent (non-beta) NVIDIA drivers, they were the first ones to work for me, which is why I posted!

So why haven't you done this already? :naughty:

I'd like to help, but I don't have vista and probably will stay clear of it for quite some time. It's a damn shame the support for "older" games is this bad on Vista. Kind of reminds me of DOS based games not running on winXP on win98 compatibility settings. What I'd like to know is what does Microsoft think "compatibility" is :uhm:

Well, with the 158.24 drivers, and the settings shown above, FH still crashes in Vista for me.

Nevermind, I got it. Had the compat set for xp, not 98/me
