Freespace 2: Descent needs about 4MB memory, nowhere near what you have. Please say where you get the note about the patch (the game has free source code; you can go into the source and edit and rebuild to your contentment.) I would say to search where you got the tip about needing a patch to get the patch program itself.

Since you're talking about Vista, I suspect you mean (or would mean if you consulted your source) that Vista needs a 1.1 patch, which you get from Windows Update, to run the game.

Man, Freespace 2 is an old game. Maybe you should try Privateer?

Putting
"Freespace 2" patch memory
into a search engine produces results if Freespace 2 needed a patch.

Is it not installing,try to browse setup.exe or install file for the game,right click and choose run as administrator..it should be installed w/o any problems,or if you were able to install this and the game just crashes upon playing it,you need to put it to compatibility mode,To do this search for freespace.exe (Probably in C:\Program Files\Volition\", right click and select the "compatibility" tab. Check the box that says "run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows 98"

Upgrade question


It's probably cheaper and better long term for you to just upgrade.

I want to install a memory upgrade how do I do it?


Desktops have 2 to 4 memory slots. If you have spares, you can do one of 2 things, remove a memory card and take it in for a match (2 more 1 gig chips is killer). If you only have 2 slots, take a chip in and ask for 2 more chips - that total the increased size that you desire.

Thanks to Microsoft's fat windows design, you will need a minimum of 2 gig to run vista and 1 gig to run XT. BTW, the term "fat" was not intended to be a compliment.

Once the new chips are installed, just turn the machine on and it will recognize the new memory and adjust accordingly.

It doesn't play =((


Do you get any error messages? Try Downloading the updated drivers and install them. Make sure you download the drivers for 64-bit vista OS. Now if it still doesnt work let me know.

How to make Vista to recognize my old Hard drive


There are normally only two ways to get vista to recognise large drives and that is to format it within windows by way of right click my computer then click manage and then highlight your harddrive right click and select format. The other way is if your drive isnt being recognised because of the bios and needs updating, as most bios chips did when upgrading to vista.
