Andreas1966 -> Technical problem with graphics (4/19/2009 5:31:29 PM)

I just installed SPWAW 8.20 and applied allt the patches up to v8403. Almost everytime I start the game the graphics look like like this:

Starting directly from the mech.exe doesn't make any difference. Can anybody give me a hint how I can change this? [&:]

System: Vista 32bit
Monitor: Widescreen 1680x1050




JEB Davis -> RE: Technical problem with graphics (4/19/2009 8:54:39 PM)

Since you say "Almost everytime..." that means some of the time it looks good.  So my advice is to make sure you turn off as many background processes as you can before starting the game, it doesn't like to share with other programs.  Also, does Alt-Tabbing back & forth clear up the display?




planner 3 -> RE: Technical problem with graphics (4/19/2009 9:44:37 PM)

My suggestion would be to set a "shortcut" from the "Mech.exe file" in your Spwaw file folder.  2.) delete ur steel.prf file in the SAVE folder, and follow JEB Davis's recommendation above.   Good Luck and repeeat after me, if all else fails...."Our father.......amen. [:D][8D]

First of all: Thanks a lot for your help, folks! In 4 of 5 cases it works fine now.
And "Alt + Tab" helps if the colors are not displayed correctly, so I can live with that. [:)]

There already is a shortcut to the mech.exe named "SPWAW Quick Link"! Or do you mean something different? [&:]

That's the shortcut I meant. Thanks! [:)]

Either one will work for a shortcut....When i first installed ver 3.2 I coulbn't find anything I couls use except mech.exe, so once attached it stayed that way, someday I may look into Quick Start etal.  Glad ur working OK

Anyone know how I can fix game crashes? Almost always happens at different times. I am saving alot just to get around the problem. Thanks.

Run SPwaw with nothing running in the background, she's an old RAM hog, she who must be obeyed takes all it can find. She does not share the machine with any other function. Miss piggy is only for herself. Hope I made it clear, she's a glutton for RAM.[&o][:-][8D]




cesteman -> RE: Technical problem with graphics (4/23/2009 4:42:22 AM)

I noticed that. I checked my cpu usage and it's around 50%. I thought it was alot for an old program. I don't have anything running in the background except my anti-virus.




planner 3 -> RE: Technical problem with graphics (4/23/2009 6:58:17 AM)

You don't need antivirus running if your not on line, this old gal (Spwaw) dont have any social diseases. You just shut that AV off and see what happens.   Try it you'll like it.




cesteman -> RE: Technical problem with graphics (4/23/2009 10:28:36 PM)

Yeah, I'll try it next time I play.
