Question about Psygnosis Metal Fatigue for Windows

Running metal fatigue in 32 bit vista with a dual core machine?

Recently i wanted to start playing metal fatigue again so after installing it and loading the game up i noticed that the in game side bar is glitched up to the point it can't be used. i have tried all avaliable compatibility modes for the program and it didnt change the problem and i cant turn off a cpu via task manager because metal fatigue crashes when minimised. i wonder if it is something to do with the dual core for if metal fatigue just doesnt like vista. also other people have been having the in game side bar glitch as well so if a solution can be found can you pass it on to them as well.

I have this exact same problem, the in game side bar is glitched to the point of uselessness, making the game unplayable. i also have windows vista on a dual core machine. nothing i have tried works. rocksten, it would be helpful if you clarified what you ment by "reinstall it using winrar". do you mean running the installation file off the cd using the winrar application? how would this help a problem that is aparently vista having issues rendering certain in game graphics?

this appears to be quite a common problem with metal fatigue and vista, ive seen only one claim that the game would run without this issue.

the only valid solution i have come across is to install microsoft virtual pc and use it to run a pre xp copy of windows, as metal fatigue will aparently not run under xp either. i have not tried this but it should work. here is a youtube link with an excelent guide on how to get virtual pc running - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LZwXCQ71to

this problem is still open, if anyone comes across a better fix please post it. it should be solvable, the game actually runs under vista, just with certain essential UI elements glitched out or invisible.

Run in campatability mode win 2000, check the 5 tick boxes in settings. apply.

also dont run it in open gl.

in your MF directory you should find program called "hardware detect" run that, then select directx hit ok. run the game.

It would be better if you uninstall it and reinstall it using winrar.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista.

Hi, you may have dual monitors activated which is a possible reason for the dvd not being playable. try holding down the fn key in the bottom corner of your keyboard and then tapping the f7 key. if your screen goes black, tap it again. you are cycling the display options. play around with tapping that key and starting the program. you may also right click the desktop>personalize>display settings, and make sure that your display is 32 bit and utilizing the maximum number of pixels it can. if you are using windows vista basic or business, you may need to download DVD codecs from microsoft or and affiliate's website.

  • get away from vista -- very process intensive as compared to XP (double # of processes) you may want to consider Windows 7 (streamlined Vista)
  • Also, dual and quad core machines do not have software support to carry the loads very well... the software hasn't been written to maximize the use of multiple processors yet... lokk for it in 5-10 yrs.

32 bit IE won't connect to internet in Vista 64 bit.


32 bit programs, last I checked, won't work in a 64 bit operating system, just as 64 bit won't work in 32 bit operating systems.

If 32 bit programs will work in a 64 bit OS, they probably won't work properly.

IE 32-bit browser need to run on my 64-bit browser


Hi buddy323,

You will find the 32 bit browser on your Vista installation disk. Or your restore CD from Dell.

If you can't find it there, you can download it HERE. Or may want to go for the IE version 8.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

  • Intel® Pentium® 4 (3 GHz or higher); AMD Athlon™; multiple processors supported, dual-core supported
  • 32-bit only: Microsoft® Windows Vista® Ultimate/Business/Enterprise, Microsoft® Windows XP (SP2)
Note: Windows XP 64 and Windows Vista 64 are supported in 32-bit compatibility mode only.

Here's how you should be able to run it in compatibility mode:
1. Right click on the Autocad Icon in your start menu
2. click on Properties
3. click on the Compatibility tab at the top
4. check the box next to Compatibility Mode and select Vista 32 bit if it is given as an option.

I don't have Vista here, but that is how it works in XP and I did do a search and it appears to be the same in Vista.

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 will not work with Vista


yes
if your machine is 64-bit Vista, then you need to install Windows XP-64bit.
you can install Windows 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, it will work. just not as good. However, you can't install 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine.
if the machine is 32-bit then you can install any type of OS you want, you can even install them as dual boot.

Windows XP


It should have come with the 32. For dual boot on this machine, go in and set up XP on the same partition as Vista. When the machine starts up it will go to a screen that allows you to choose which op system you want. You shouldn't, but if you run into conflicts you will need to create a separate partition for the two op systems.
