Hi i got a vista and an xp, i had recently bought the medal of honor allied assault warchest thing and tried to put SH and BT on my vista. No luck, it installed and everything but when i try to play it turns black and doesnt do anything. Allied assault works fine but its just sh and bt. Is there an application that i could use tto fix this problem or is there just some weird thing i have to do while installing???? SH and BT work on my xp but unfortunatley they are to graphicaly advanced for my system and run very slow with visual settings all the way down. So please Need sum help, ps i hate vistas argh.gif

ok if your a vista user I suppose you did these things. 1. right click>run as admin 2. right click>properties>then like run as admin in the box or under security tab. and there might be some other stuff but tell me if that works

What kind of CPU, how much RAM, and what graphics card are you using?

Armdude;4797228console says i need a multitexturing video card (which i do)

That doesn't mean its active or on i believe there is a shortcut command u can put in the address bar of the shortcut to force the feature on

btw... my Vid card is a FX5500 PCI aka. A PIECE OF SH** and both run fine continue posting problems, i'm currently playing them this week anyway so i can test

OH WAIT, try running the game with texture compression on and off and see if there's any changes, not all vid cards support Tex Comp.

Thank you guys for your help. humm.gif

If you are using a Nvidia card I would suggest using nHancer to run these games. If you are using ATI then the latest ATI driver for Vista runs them fine. I have Breakthrough running on the Windows 7 beta with the latest Vista driver from ATI.

nHancer - Advanced Control Panel for nVidia Cards

A quick Google search takes you far, my friend.
