Good news, bad news......Recently I had to replace my trusty 6 yr old Dell(XP) with a HP(Vista)...The new baby comes with 4gig RAM which may be the reason I no longer have the annoying "color changes" caused after Windows '95.........Bad news is....the artillery orders screen orders problems which were fixed in a patch some time back seems to be back with a vengeance..I am using the latest Enhanced........Anybody else have this issue anymore?
Man I want to upgrade my PC, but am so scared SPWAW wont run right with Vista....I usually get HP too
Alby, I got the HP Pavilion at Best Buys for approx $600..500gig harddrive and 4gig RAM, and this version of VISTA makes SPWAW run better than it ever did,(with the exception of that annoying artillery delay..Ya gotta punch the order buttons a few times, like before the patch came out which fixed it), but in every other way, it is astounding....BTW, The HP is so powerful I can run 2 or other programs in the background at the same time!!!!!
For instance, I normally download maybe 4-7 classic war flicks simultaneously...no sweat, AND play music to boot!..(To answer your next question, no, that is not causing the arty orders screen problem, I tried SPWAW on its' own as well.....I might try to reload SPWAW from scratch, maybe the newest offering *missed* that particular patch??
maybe I will up grade then...thanks Bob
