Hey There, It looks like the act of war forums have been removed so this seems to be t the only place to put this. I bought act of war gold edition (which includes act of war and the high treason expansion pack) everything installs fine, but the game won't run. At all. I'm running vista home premium with a duel core processor, 2gb of ram and a nvidia 8600 providing for my graphics needs. I know vista is a pain for running games but i can't downgrade to xp so i'm stuck with it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Spannerads

Do you have any error messages, since a friend runs act of war on vista just fine.

scan your computer with an anti virus or maybe upgrade your drivers

I've tried re-installing them both, Act of War : Direct Action works fine with the patches applied but High Treason dosen't work at all, with or without a patch. There is an error message that comes up but it's all in french, however it does give the directory where act of war high treason is installed.

hmm I think there might have been some issues with high treason from what I remember - try googling the error itself.

if it isn't possible to get high treason running, would it be possible to take data from it (models, maps etc.) and put it into direct action so the high treason campaign or whatever it is, is still useable?

you probably just need a patch of some sort, just look up the error problem and you'll probably get some results from websites with the patch to fix it.:smokin:

no, i tried the the high treason patch and 1b patch on Act of War, Act of War Downloads - FileFront.com but to no avail, vista's compatability options don't help either. There isn't much support for act of war left on the web anymore.

Try using it on xp to see if is working(Maybe you have a friend that is using XP) in this way you can know if it is a game or OS problem
