Hi People!

I've recenlty purchased star trek legacy and I've installed it on to windows vista home premium (desktop PC). However, when I load the game, there is major mouse lag, the game runs slowly and the sound is really distorted.

Can anybody help me?

I have the latest drivers for my video card (512MB) and sound card. I've also tried using the 'repair install' option and the 'run in compatibility with windows xp service pack 2' option.

Somebody help me! Please!:bawl::confused:

I too had to put Legacy on Vista. At first the overall the game was kinda laggy and the sound was weird at times but now it runs alot better and the sound is no longer messed up for me. Do you have the patches installed? If you do thats your problem. If you're smart like me and read the comments for both patches you wouldn't have them on their. So I think what happened with me was the Windows Updates...only resonable explanation I can think of right now.

I have Legacy on my new Desktop with Vista too... as far as I can tell, the problem is with the sound card, Legacy was built for 4.1, not 5.1, I had the same problems until I changed my sound card properties to the 4.1 setting and everything was fine after that

For XP: Start > Control Panel > (Category View) Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Volume Tab > Under speaker settings, go to advanced, and change the configuration. That is the *generic* way of doing it, I change the configuration through Sound Blaster (SB has its own program, "CreativeSB!" which allows you to do the same in less steps, less confusing). However I have no idea if its the same for Vista, sorry. Hope that helps.:)
