Question about Atari Act of War: Direct Action for Windows
Installed act of war direct action and when i try and run it, a message tells me actofwar.exe has stopped working.
THIS IS THE FIX for Act of War and High Treason Crash / Error
Solution for the memory and video memory crash. You need to go to your game location:
1- For steam users its Program Files (x86) >> Steam >> steamapps >> common >> Act of War High treason (else its the normal Program Files (x86) >> Atari >> Act of War High treason) and right click on ActofWar_HighTreason.exe and put the compatibility mode on one of the Vista.
2- Downloadhttp://cns-spb.ru/d3d9.zipand put that .dll file in same location. Remmember to store this file for later use, since we dont know how long the link will be up.
Works at least on W7 Ultimate x64 sp1

*install patch V1.06
*close all other programs running on the backround
*run the game with with administrator account or with administrator rights
*run the game exe with Windows XP compatibility mode (if you are running Vista/Win7)
*There are a lot of reports that this game will not like more than 3GB of RAM, so limit RAM size to 2GB by editing Win XP (boot.ini) or Vista/Win7 (bcdedit) or by removing some memory sticks
