    Jonesyx6,

    The only other thing I can suggest is to go to the game's website to see if there are any updates or patches available for it that may resolve the issue you are having with it.

    Jonesyx6 have you had a look on the official TW forums to see what others have done to get the game to work on Vista?

    After looking around more, it seems that it is a combination of Vista and the newer video cards. I have a new laptop with ATI radeon x1250 running the 8.4 driver. I am cautious on downgrading the drivers and losing the whole computer. I will just have to say good buy to the game or play it on an older XP machine. I may actually try running it on a linux machine with wine. Too bad but technology moves on. They will remake it some day. Thanks for the help.

    You're welcome Jonesyx6,

    You should not lose anything by uninstalling the video driver and reinstalling a newer or older version though. If you already had the older driver installed before, then you may be able to simply rollback the driver in Device Manager.

    I hope that they come out with a new version for you soon.

    I'm with you in this Jonesyx6 for i'm a big fan of MOHAA and i can't just run it in vsta x64. i tryed the compatability mode, and it don't work. installed dx9 and dx90c and still dont work.
    well to be specific. the game loads to the main menu screen. but when its time to play it goes in to a gray screen and it stays there untill i get uot the task manager to force the program to close.
    I know MOHAA is old but its a cool game. I have also ran doom 3, crysis, call of duty, far cry, burnout paradise ultimate box. and they all run good. not great but good.(thats due to hardware issues may need to update my SLI rig XFX force 8600 GT x2 with something with more thump!)
    Also I have played the infamous MS flight simulatos 9 and 10.
    All run good but still the MOHAA issue

    I thought i would post this for some help
    if you have a game that is not compatible with your computer check and see if it is on steam or a program made by Microsoft called games for windows live if its on there either sell or return your game then by it on one opf those programs and your computer should run beter than how it was on the disk or it should be able to run period!

    If you really really want to play an old game you could try a virtual machine.

    Personally, I have my old XP software running in a virtual machine incase I get something that doesn't run in Vista so well. And if it doesn't run in XP (because it is REALLY old) then I use a program called DosBOX.

    I haven't found a game that I couldn't find a way to play yet.

    Brink.

    You should try posting the latest Games For Windows update on this thread, like you do with ATI and NVIDIA Drivers.

    If you cant because permissions may be needed, then i understand.
