Hi,

I have got serious problem with game. My PC has powerful hardware configuration and never hangs and blue screens (WinXP SP2). But wnen I want to play SPWAW it hangs after few minutes of playing or even close to blue screen. I use it at work with other programmes which run with any problems. Sometimes must to run my mouse cursor over all screen surface to refresh it. At this moment i cant reinstall opperating system but want to repair my lovely game.

Thanx for any hints!

Regards

Szarik

What you are describing is video drivers problem, try installing the latst version of the drivers.

Also make sure you have DirectX 9.0b installed.

You have a GeforceFX, like the 5400 or 5600, something right? If so, a real graphic card can be found for 100$ US these days, these are just full of problems to a point Nvidia is not supporting then anymore.

Wow ...you are clairvoyant! I'have got that kind of card.
Thanx for help. Now I know what to do.

I must admit it was a little of a guess, but soo many people bought these crappy cards that it wasn't really a guess. Full of bugs I tell you...full of bugs...it`s not even funny, even recent drivers don't fix everything and leave major nasties that could be corrected only by revising the architecture of the card.

I'va debugged alot of computers and here's and advice for any one who wants listen:

You are better off buying a card with a full fledge chip 1 generation behind, than buying a stripped down chip of the current generation. Yes the older one will be a bit "slower" to process but it will have full multithreading capability and a decent cache. What you loose in processing speed you gain in stability and communication speed with the AGP bus.

So any one that has an FX card or any of that crap...do yourself a favor and find 100$ to change it to a real card.
