I recently installed BC on my brothers new vista computer(not sure of its specs atm) to see how it looked as its new and far more powerful than my laptop I play bc on.

Everything seems to work fine, but there's a flicker every couple of seconds on the screen and after about 10 to 15 min of playing it just crashes. I'v never had the problem running bc on other systems before so I thinking its because of vista.

Anyone heard of this before? Is it vista or maybe just the graphics card or directx 10 being a pain? I know BC was made in 2002 so I'm suprised at the problem, just wondering if theres a way around it because BC really does look good on the new computer lol.

EDIT: I was thinking, could it maybe be the refresh rate of the moniter causeing problem?

I would suggest you take a look at the topic I made here Black Screen of Death With Out a Cursor and Runtime errors, about Windows related problems. Pay particula attention to the Graphics Card Solutions, sice you have that graphic problems. Also Use compabltiy mode to disable Vistas advantaged graphics options, that will likely help with the graphic, I'm not sure wether I fixed that probmel like that my self or not, I've been using BC on Vista for so long now, so I don't rember. any way it not of that helps post the debug info from windows there, for me to look at, if you can get it.

Does KM1.0 always crash when people close it? It does for me and I saw it in Henze's post above so I thought I'd ask if this is a general thing?

Mine usually crashed when I close it, but as I'm closing it anyway, I've never really thought about it!

Try changing your screen resolution and the hardware accelerator you are using ingame. The choices are in the options menu. I had the same problem with my laptop, and assumed it was just Vista being buggy, like always.

Another thing to try is checking what color scheme you are in (16-bit or 32-bit)
