    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.

    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:

    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/?file=40270&mirror=&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

    Greetings
    DiDaDo.

    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.
