  1. Thanks all....I'm going with the XP x64 only because it is the "next" step (64 bit processing) and I can get a good deal ($90)
  2. Did you see an improvement in performance? I am planning on running an Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66 with a 160gb RAID 1 setup and just want the best performance from the system I can get....I know the nVidea 8800GTs 320mb will smoke...just want a system that can keep pace.... I also wnat to be able to play WWIIOL so I am not moving to Vista until SP1 at the earliest....
  3. Will WWIIOL run on a machine with Windows XP Pro x64? I am building a new system and would like to move up from x32 to x64 OS....
  4. Well I'll jump on the band wagon: Grandfather (b 1907) was 4F - didn't serve in the military. He was an electrical engineer and worked for the Army Signal Corps developing and refining radar for both land based deployment and planes. His units (radar) were deployed to Hawaii and one was in use on December 11, 1941. He always said that the soldiers weren't being properly trained and constantly complained about it. Great Uncle Cy - Served the entire war on merchant ships in the North Atlantic. He signed abouard a freighter in 1937 at the age of 15. He had two ships torpedoed and one bombed during the war. He continued in the merchant marine business until he retired in 1990. Wife's grandfather - Was on the first wave of landings at Omaha beach with the A/116th Infantry Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division. He landed at Dog Green and was, in his words "One of the luckiest SOBs on that beach. I was neck deep in the water and made it all the way to the beach, and then the seawall and never got shot." He cleaerd obstacles and pulled wounded men up to the seawall where they were pinned down all day by snipers and MG fire. He didn't get a single scratch from enemy action (he was cut up and bruised from all the scrambling around). During the battle for Brest a Bf-109G-6/R2 dropped a bomb which landed directly on an ammo truck near him. He said the blast threw him about 30-40 feet. It ruptured his right eardrum and destroyed the cochlea which causes him vertigo to this day. He was sent back to England for recovery and spent 1945-49 in Germany with the Army. Only in the last 3 years has he started talking about his experiences.
  5. I'm up and runninng again!!! Thanks guys!! Apparently there were some old Cat drivers still lurking about and Driver Cleaner took care of them. It's because of you guys that I paid for my sub for 14 months even though I couldn't play!!! See you in game! S!
  6. OK so after moving into a new house and 14 months of no internet I finally get cable run in my neighborhood. I fire up the computer and update WWIIOL with no problems. I then launch the game and joy of joys it loads and runs fine!!! WOOT!! I play for a bit and then log out. Since it has been over 14 months I update my ATI drivers (I was getting 38-42FPS in game) thinking that I could get a few more. I download the 7.2 Catalysts from AMD/ATI and install them. I get told that I now have to have .NET2.0 to run the CCC. I download and install that. Everything seems to be peachy in Lorcan-land. I then restart WWIIOL and get WTFpwned. Now when WWIIOL loads I get a white screen then the splash screen. The splash screen doesn't have all of the sponsors and it takes about 10 minutes for the indicator to move across the screen while loading objects etc. The game never starts. Soooo....I uninstall the new drivers roll back to the old and nothing changes. I uninstall .NET 2.0 uninstall WWIIOL uninstall the ATI drivers re-boot. I install the old ATi drivers again, clean install of WWIIOL and get the same thing. Any thoughts?

  7. FPS hits high end cards as well...I have an x850XT PE w/256mb. Use video memory and take and average 15-20 fps hit looking at trees in Binos. Of course that means i am only getting 45-50 fps...but the hit is still there

  9. do you by chance have a USB keyboard? I seem to remember some issues with USB JS and keyboards..but that was a while ago and I am sure the post is so burried it will only be found by some palentologist 400 years from now. BUT anyways if you do have a USB keyboard and JS try using a PS/2 to USB converter on the keyboard.
