Help with Project IGI (Nvidia problem)
 
Hello all :roll:

This is a pc game with a Nvidia problem because with ATI/AMD it works..

I cannot get this game properly started on windows7 64bit/32bit.
All old games on win7 work except this one (old favorite) :bang:

Direct X message: fatal error - couldn't flip :frown:

I have tried everything so what doesn't work:
Using older directx 9-8-7 files..
Compatibily modes..
Older drivers/newer geforce drivers (i have a GTX260m)

I know its almost impossible but i hope somebody knows a solution.. :)

Try 'compatibility' mode in the executable's properties.

I tried this one while we were beta testing win7, unfortunately it doesn't work.

The problem with this game is that it is booting, :thumbup:
it can load a level, starts the intro from a level with ingame graphics. :flip2:

But after that hangs if you want to go ingame and you get a fatal Direct X message which is stupid because it don't make sense :) :puke2: :kermit:

If i recall correctly... this game was broken a few years ago back when the..? was
it GF2 or GF3's were around.
An nVidia driver reached a certain number & broke this game.
At the time it would run but you'd get no menus or HUD overlay.. waited for a
patch or driver to fix the issue but they never bothered.

It worked until the famous GeForce 8's unified shader architecture came out.. :micro:

In the beginning it had much artefacts and the direct x error..
Now everything looks nice but until it crashes with the same directx message..

Geforce 7 with the same new drivers (26x.xx) then it works.. :3eyes:

well it is fix for IGI with graphic with newest GF cards

MauroR 07-20-2012 20:24

Hello, I need the fix too. Megaupload is down forever and the nvidia forums are down as well. Can someone share this fix with me please?

didado 01-07-2013 17:54

Finally !!!
Never thought all problems would be fixed.
With the latest Nvidia drivers on a fully updated Win7 64bit and DirectX and a "fix" it is all GREAT. XD

Someone uploaded the "fix" (love that word) on Nvidia forums. :)

And here it is:
http://www.playground.ru/download/?f...ror=&from=http

Just copy past it in the main folder and open the .exe file that came with it.. ;)

On my GTX260M i dont need this "fix" with latest Nvidia drivers.
With a GTX570 this "fix" (really.. love it) is needed for a normal (not glitching) main menu. (settings etc..)

Im so happy now playing this full HD.. :3

Btw thanxxxx wartexmx for that link and helping me out. ;)

Project IGI e IGI 2 worked for years on all my pcs including W7 x64 without any fix.

only issue i ever had was widescreen resolutions and that was easy. :P

glad you fixed your problem, even after all this time.
