Hi,


Issue: FoF, CoG and EiA won't run on my new hardware.

Description: The entry screens appear missplaced and the main start menu does not appear. EiA additionally shows up with 0-summ ok-prompts.

Possible causes: Cause could be the monitor (Dell 2709W), or the gpu who has 1024MB GDR5 (Palit/XpertVision Radeon HD 4870).

Tested solution: Scaling down did not help so far.



Any ideas?


Thx


Os: Vista 64 bit

Hi Amin,

Please try right-clicking on the file that starts up the game, then select "properties". On this screen, go to the "compatibility" tab. In this tab, place a check mark in the box that says "run this program in compatibility mode for" and then select "Windows XP sp2."

Then click "ok", and give it a try.

If this doesn't work, please check that you're running the game as administrator by right-clicking as above, then select "Run as Administrator".

If neither of those work, then I would suspect the video card drivers. Perhaps they need updating.

Good luck, sounds like you have a nice new gaming rig. I'm extremely jealous!

Good hint Slick,

scaling with high DPI value under "properties" is now activated. FoF and CoG run now. There remain only some minor issues with the buttons on the intro-screen. EiA is still not operable. I am going to check the 64 bit patch later.

The rig is the first CS4-rig I have built. I am rather content so far. Dell 2709W is a good price/value monitor for the display of double pages.

Thanks, that hint was really helpful.
