Ok, this is the deal. I have uninstalled and reinstalled this game several times. For the reasons such as updates, mods, etc... Well, I think my computer has had it. Just recently, I add the new Dominion patch 4.43, released on 21 Jan. Now, I have done the previous patches before this and had no trouble at all graphic wise. But since this patch, the in-game graphic now look like a bad dream. No ship graphic, and the nebulas, planets and my movement pie all look blury. So, I dump the game from my system. But now, even without the Dominion patch, just a plain old initial install with the 1.01 beta patch us, the graphic are the same every time now. And when I get out of the game the computer graphics are reset to 8 bit, not the standard 32 bit that I use. Now I have some graphic hog games such as Freelancer, Army Operations 2.0, Flight Simulator 2004, and Blackhawk Down (Delta Force). These game operate just fine. So could someone tell be what the hell is wrong with my game now and how do I fix it so I can continue to play this awesome game that I do love to play. I have a Nividia geforce2 card with 64mb of mem. on it and the system is a Dell 1.7 ghz system. Any help will be appreciated. :kerian:
Damn. Your problem kinda reminds me of the problem I have with the game. On a hard drive formatted with WinXP, I had the game installed, with patch and all, and never had a problem, and I have a very old graphics card and still never had a prob, then one day the cursor disappeared when it went to the lower half of the screen, and I haven't been able to fix it since. I have the game installed on other hard drives, but the cursor is still there. I'm thinking of reformatting the hard drive and starting from scratch.
Reformating can be good as new completly clean install of game with latest video card drivers, beta patch and install of DW44 mod with DW443 patch ( instructions on www.pwfe.com/domwars ). If this does not work then Windows messed something up and you can only format your hard drive .
