The game probably won't launch because your computer does not meet minimum requirements to run the game. For example the latest direct x,
or other requirements.

When you download a game first you must make sure your pc meets system requirements for that particular game. If you are fine there, install your game. It should ask you for a destination folder, it is good to keep organized and create a folder for your game, After install it may ask you if you want an icon placed on the desktop. If you want to be able to find iteasily then go ahead. Now when it comes time to play the game, click your icon or find it where you have placed it in your program list. If it has trouble starting up, it may require the cd to be in the drive before opening the program. Most new games have so many graphics and information that it requires the disk to be in the drive while playing. If you are still having problems you might consider if your graphics card can handle the games or maybe you are short on RAM. Try to kee as little programs running at once as you can. Your computer will run faster and smoother if the RAM is not being used up by multiple processes. If you still have trouble get back to me and we will try some other tricks. Happy Gaming...

Hello Tracy,

If the game wont launch at all, please make sure all your drivers, especially video and sound, are 100% up to date. Even if your video card appears to be working properly, if the drivers are out of date games may not launch.

Playstation wont do anhything


This is a known problem with the recent update.
As many others have reported this bug occurs when you are supposed to earn a trophy and nothing happens. Somehow user accounts get corrupted :

- Trophy Syncing won't work (Error 8022D11)
- PSN games tell us that the system is not activated.
- Other games will not work either, telling that the data was created by another user and we would have to restart the game.

The only way to get rid of this problem is by deleting the current user and creating a new one with the same name. This however ruins most of the save games because the games won't accept them as ours!! Here is some gathered information :

- It can happen with every games supporting trophies.
- It happens since 2.50 and still happens with 2.52.
- There still is no official statement that this bug exists!

HERE is one link for more info...

Sony Network is experiencing sporadic outages in certain areas today.
It may be a scheduled system upgrade or maintenance - but be assured you are not the only one facing this issue.
No UP time has been announced by Sony - they are working to get the system up and running as soon as possible.
The problem is not on your end.
Keep trying to connect.

New p c game will not launch

If you installed from CD - Have you tried it with the CD in? Many games do not install completely to the hard drive and require the CD to run. If you downloaded it from another source, try installing it again.
