    Starcraft problem

    Everytime I load Starcraft on Windows7 the graphics are bad until I play the game then only the background water scene is wrong. I only get the problem with other windows os when focus is taken from the game, via Avast! updating...

    • CoD2 works! (first it crashed when i entered an online server)
    xp sp3 compatibility mode
    running as administrator
    no visual themes
    also i had to set the affinity to 2 cores.. because i had lagspikes. Now it's fine ! :)


    • NFS Shift works.. sometimes some fps drops, especially when there are many cars on screen. :confused:
    xp sp3 compatibility mode
    running as administrator
    no visual themes

    Coduo

    I found a means to get CODUO to work on Win7. Install on any 32 bit os on one drive labeled "C", on the another drive (lebeled whatever you wish) load Win7. Access the game from there "7" and go to Multiplayer Options and enter your key and you can now play.

    Provided you do your homework and get all the correct drivers then yes...(Kotor 1&2 need a fixed dll file which I mentioned in post in the games sections).

    I have the RTM version of 7 x64, i believe it's build 7200, correct me if i am wrong. But here's a listing of games i have tested so far that don't work:

    Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Gears of War, Section 8, Far Cry, Timeshift, Half-life 2 Beta

    They all install, but won't launch.

    Now for the games i have installed and worked:

    Halo 2 (has some texture issues, even at the highest settings possible), Dead Space, Ghostbusters, Prototype, Borderlands, Portal, NFS Carbon, Far Cry 2, Lost Planet, Red Faction Guerilla, Burnout Paradise, Fallout 3, and Frontlines Fuel of War.
