Howdy! I just bought Uncommon Valor and of course it does not work. This game looks great. Any issues running it on Vista?

I have not had any issues with it. However, 64 bit Vista does not seem to work with Tracker, which I've been told is awesome.

I run Tracker just fine on 64-bit Vista. The key is using 32-bit Java.

Martian Gamecock,
I have both 32-bit and 64-bit Java on my windows 7 machine. Does tracker need to be directed to the 32-bit in some fashion or will it choose automatically. I know this is probably somewhere in the tracker thread, but I don't feel like searching through a gazillion pages.

I only have one installed, so I don't know. I suspect it would be controlled by your PATH environment variable.

I'm sure you can get UV to work on Vista too ... just make sure not to install to program files & use / setup compatibility mode for UV.

There are still ppl playing UV and I'm sure asking the Q in that forum would get a better response.

Incorrect it does work ... just not as easy to set up.(see below)

Yes it does if you have both Java versions installed ... and our web-page has this information...

Batch file should look like this for 64 bit users...

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xms384m -Xmx512m -jar "WitPTracker.jar"
pause
