    I seem to remember you brought this up months ago as a Nvidia bug

    had no luck with them Huh?

    now you want to blame XP ??

    if you must play your 2 year old Win98 games on Xp
    and bugger about with the colour
    use the ruddy Dsub and have done with it

    hmm current games get a life!


    1. Dungeon Siege

    Released: Apr 05, 2002 (complete release info)
    Published By: Microsoft
    Developed By: Gas Powered Games

    ok over a year old VERY CURRENT where did you buy it the bargain bin at the
    werehouse?

    2. Humvee Assult
    Release Date: 04/15/2003

    hmmm very current
    so new the company, Infogames no longer publishes games under that name
    anymore they became Atari months ago
    the Atari site shows no mention of the game so it's a top 10 hit no doubt

    ah gamespot has a review:

    "Humvee Assault is also a budget game. And as you might expect from a
    budget-priced game, it's simple, short, slightly buggy, and generally not
    very good. "
    "We experienced hard lockups three or four times during the three or four
    hours it took to finish the game. These crashes are especially aggravating
    since you can save the game only after you've completed a mission goal. The
    developer has acknowledged the lockup problem and is evidently working on a
    patch"

    they give it 3.9 out of ten

    4 months old? bargain bin



    3. Need For Speed, Hot Pursuit 2

    Release Date: 21/10/2002

    hmm nearly a year old, push that cpu boy...................

    oh look a patch dated 27/1/03 very current

    when you want to match wits, make sure you have some

    game, set and match

  6. Re: Major Major BUG in Rogers brain Update

    So, a game that is 6 months old shouldn't work on the latest hardware? It's
    not worth taking the time to fix? Get a life. If any games don't work on my
    pc I want to know the reason why.

    These games work on WIN98se and with XP as long as I don't change the colour
    correction in the Nvidia drivers..


    The Problem is the Drivers not XP, I am just passing this on so others that
    might have this problem, also that their might be a chance that Nvidia might
    see my post..

    NOTE: The games are not at fault..
