2142 & Vista

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Straight to the problem; whenever I run the 1.25 patch, it runs in a loop. It gets to 100%, and then starts back over.

I tried an un/re-install, but same thing. When I uninstalled it and looked in the EA folder left in program files, I saw a patch doc file, and everything read that basically it couldn't find the right file to patch. Any suggestions on what to do?

Edit\\\\ When I click on Multiplayer in 2142, the game crashes....I have no idea what is happening...

Tried three sets of drivers, including the ones that Vista installs itself. No help at all.

I know that 2142 works in Vista, but I can't figure out what I did/doing wrong.

You just have to let it go... It will finish eventually, I had the same problem. Also make sure you run 2142 and the patch in XP SP2 compatability mode.

Alright, I wasn't running in compatibility mode, thanks for that.

I guess I'll just let it run while I get myself some food....

Also, was the crashing linked to not being in compatibility mode?

If it matters, I'm using Vista Business.

Thanks so much for your help guys!! If I can't play this game...it's back to XP.

Well in my personal experience... XP runs 2142 alot better than Vista. For me, I could only run on medium to low settings with no AA in Vista. In XP I can run at all maxxed out and 8x AA, if that helps ya. For some people games run well on Vista, for me it didn't.
