Question about Microsoft Halo 2 for Windows

1 Answer

VIDEO MODE NOT SUPPORTED

Installed and started game. Got to stairway where bad guys break thru door. Got killed and before restarting I visited the video options just to see what my Nvidia 8400GS would do. Clicked on some anti aliasing and hi detail boxes. Upon return to game, got black screen with error message in a simple blue box (kinda DOS looking).
Here is the good part. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game. I have deleted all saved game folders as well as all Halo folders before 3rd reinstall. I have
reinstalled graphic card drivers. Everytime I start Halo 2 now, I just get the same error box (Video mode not supported). I can hear the audio of the start screen, but no cursor....nothing. I have to alt tab back to the desktop and use task manager to kill Halo.
My video card works fine on all other stuff. I'm playing Crysis, no problem.
System details: Vista sp1 3.4 experience, Dual Core 32 bit 3GHz, 3G ram.
There must be a regedit key...? Something to reset the video mode to default...?

Warcraft 3 problem with monitor (turning to sleep mode)


Hello

If only monitors turns off it means that game is in higher resolution than monitor can support.

However, warcraft is preety old game and such things shouldn't happen.

Possible sollutions:
1. Download lastest Video card drivers from producent website
2. Install lastest DirectX
3. If still problem occurs:
Click Start->Run...
enter "regedit" -> press enter
open following directories: HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Blizzard Entertainment -> Warcraft III -> Video

doubleclick on "resheight" -> check "decimal" and enter 640, apply with OK
then doubleclick on "reswidth" -> check "decimal" and enter 800, apply with OK

Run game and see if it helped.

Cheers,
Mike

Upon startup of game get this error message- "unable to initialize video mode: could not set screen mode."


try download n install latest driver..

Here is something you can try for now:
Many games provide an option to be started in "window"-mode instead of fullscreen.
Open a terminal, cd to the directory where the game is installed and start it from there, but append "--help" behind the command name (or "-h" if that didn't work)! Keep an eye open for an option that looks as if it starts the game in window-mode.

Taito legends 2 vista


Try reinstalling it while in Safe Mode. First uninstall Taito Legends 2 from your computer using the uninstall program that comes with the game. Once that's done, restart the computer and start it in Safe Mode. You can do this by pressing F8 as soon as the computer restarts and then choosing the Safe Mode option from the start up list. Once in windows starts in Safe Mode you can then reinstall Taito Legends 2 . Once it is completely installed restart the computer in normal mode and the game should now run. I hope this works for you.

Problem with Ati radeon graphic card


The ATI Radeon X1050 video card is unfortunately not supported by the game. You need atleast a X1300 to play the game. But you may try updating the game itself by going to the medal of honor website and download the patch. Then restart your computer and try starting the game.
