How can I get red faction 2 to work?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Red faction 2 is a game from 2002 which doesn't seem to like to play on W7-64 bit. Even though it says that it plays on a 64bit OS. Perhaps its W7 that's the problem. Anyway, is there a custom launcher or community patch that anyone knows of?

Have you tried disable desktop composition & launch in Windows 2000 compatibility mode?

You can set these up in the properties of the game exe.

Hmm, never done that before. Where exactly do go to access those properties?

Right click the shortcut or exe, Properties, Compatibility tab. Then tick the appropriate boxes.

Not sure if it'll fix the game, though.
