Default Re: Windows 7 *GUARANTEED* fix

I unzipped to my mbt folder and all I got was a winfx.dll, unless I had that already. After reading your reply I unzipped your file to a desktop folder, then copyed and pasted the win7fix.cmd into my spmbt folder. Now all works as it should. Thanks.

Thumbs down Re: Windows 7 *GUARANTEED* fix

NCrawler,
My 17 in Toshiba has a 1600x900 max resolution. I've tried ALL the lower resolution settings and still the graphics/colors are distorted OR the game simply WON'T play. Obviously this "guaranteed" fix isn't guaranteed for everybody.

What video card/onboard graphics do you have in your laptop? Try this, go to start menu and from the search box type dxdiag.exe. When the diagnostic comes up, go to the Display tab and run both tests. This should let you know whether your system will support full screen direct draw...

NCrawler,
Here's a screen shot of my graphics card on my laptop. Let me know what else I can do to get the fix to work.

Can report 2 more fixed machines, one may have been coincidental or just a bad launch but the game locked solid first time used.
Since then he has knocked out a scenerio with no problems.

Your dxdiag screen doesn't have half of the tabs/options that I normally see when messing around with computers. If I were you I would download the latest redistributable from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...7-5ab8109cb4f5 and try again...

Question Re: Windows 7 *GUARANTEED* fix

NCrawler,
I'm NOT computer savy as you. Can you tell me where to install these files from that link?

EJ: if you're talking about the redistributable link that I posted, just download the file to your desktop (about 104MB) and when it's finished downloading, just double-click it and it will install the latest DirectX files + all older releases needed to play older games. The error message you are getting makes me think that either:

1. You don't have the required DX files on your system

2. You need to update your Radeon drivers (I would try the reference drivers from AMD rather than the OEM ones from Toshiba)

or

3. Your graphics adapter does not support older versions of DX (not very likely)

I would guess that it is either #1 or #2 but without actually seeing your laptop or one like it I'm just guessing. We have some Toshiba Satellite laptops at work so I'll have a look at one on Monday if you don't get it resolved by then...

Angry Re: Windows 7 *GUARANTEED* fix

NCrawler,
I downloaded the file to my desktop. I double clicked it and IT ASKS WHERE TO INSTALL(small box pops up). I proceeded to say desktop and all these damn icons were all over my desktop. Once this was done it did not enable the game to run full screen. I then deleted all those nuisance icons. My Toshiba is a Satelite L555D-S7930,graphics card is an ati 4100. I've given all the info I can. Obviously ALL win 7 programs are NOT the same since mine won't play the game full screen no matter what I try.

Oh, ok, I see what you were asking now. Sorry about that. The file is a self-extracting archive then. Just choose a temporary place to extract it, when the small box pops up, just type in: C:\temp

When it is finished you can click on My Computer, browse to the C: drive and open the Temp folder. Double-click on dxsetup.exe and let it install.
