Question about THQ Saints Row 2 for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Graphics are not rendering properly, walls are invisible and/or the player can?t move or the color will all of a sudden disappear from most of the game and the character becomes a black silhouette. The issue described above is if it makes it past the load screen, I would say that tends to be about 60% of the time after trying to resolve the problem about 20 times.

Black screen on computer


Check your RAM, remove the sticks one at a time, to eliminate each stick. This is a common cause of your fault. Make sure you turn the power off at the wall before you remove or fit any parts.

Graphic Rendering The Real World


The real world is filled with complex objects: curves, textures, shadows, and especially the commonplace flaws found in everyday structures that make them real. The challenge for game developers is to duplicate these objects in a realistic manner. A character's face shouldn't look perfect, because there are always small blemishes, wrinkles, and other imperfections. Also, the physics of movement and interaction between objects in the real world have to be faithfully duplicated.

So the challenge for video card manufacturers is to create hardware that is able to support all of the programmatic techniques developed to present a realistically rendered world within a computer. When comparing video cards, you'll often run into terms such as bump mapping, anisotropic filtering, bilinear filtering, MIP mapping, etc. All of these (and others) are techniques implemented in the hardware that let game developers create realistic objects in their games. Let's take a very quick tour of what some of these terms mean.

GPU – Graphics Processing Unit; as video cards become increasingly complex, it pays to offload a lot of the heavy-duty visual processing from the computer's main CPU to what amounts to a mini-CPU on the video card. The video card's GPU does a lot of the computational heavy lifting required to render 3D graphics.

DDR – The term DDR is often used to describe a video card's memory. DDR stands for "double-data rate" and is a type of SDRAM used in video cards today. Double-data rate means this type of memory is able to move data on both the falling and rising edges of the clock cycle. DDR1 SDRAM is the most common memory in use with video card technology today and is able to move data in 2-bit chunks.

Again, the purpose here is to offload graphics rendering tasks out of the computer's main memory and CPU, hence the idea to equip video cards with loads of memory. Nowadays, a cutting-edge video card should pack 256MB of DDR1 or DDR2 SDRAM. Unlike DDR1, DDR2 memory moves data in 4-bit chunks, so data transfer performance is doubled. The newest video cards on the market today are beginning to adopt DDR2 memory.

RAMDAC – Your computer only understands digital, and your eyes can only see in analog. The video card RAMDAC's job is to bridge the gap between the digital and analog worlds and let the computer display analog images on the monitor. Faster RAMDACs (RAMDAC speeds are measured in megahertz) enable the computer to display higher resolutions on a monitor without annoying flicker.

3D Terminology – Today's video cards render highly realistic 3D images. To do this, video cards must faithfully reproduce what gamers see in the real world, including lifelike textures and realistic movements. There are a number of techniques implemented in both hardware and software that let video cards generate realistic 3D images. Let's take a look at a few of the most important:

Z-buffering – A technique implemented in the video card's memory that is used to store information about pixel location as fluid scenes are rendered. For example, if a pixel moves behind another, that information is stored in the Z-buffer.

Texel – Stands for "texture element." A texel is a graphics unit similar to a pixel, except it is used to define 3D graphics. Think of a texel as the base unit that defines 3D graphics.

Fogging – Technique used to simulate haze, fog, or smoke.

Trilinear filtering – Video cards use texture maps to apply textures, such as skin, surfaces, etc., to simplified models of objects called primitives. Essentially, these primitives are "colored" with textures stored in 2D images called texture maps. Textures must not only look realistic, they must also be adjusted, if need be, according to the position and movement of the object. Trilinear filtering is used to make this mapping appear more realistic.

Full-screen anti-aliasing – Anti-aliasing is used to smooth out transitions between pixels with different colors and reduce image "jaggies." This technique minimizes the jaggies at all resolutions.

Programmable vertex and pixel shading – These techniques allow the rendering of realistic lighting and shadow effects. For example, ATI's SMARTSHADER technology allows the implementation of DirectX 9 floating-point programmable vertex and pixel shading. NVIDIA's version is called CineFX.

DirectX 10 – This is Microsoft's latest version of the DirectX APIs that let video developers programmatically exploit the capabilities of existing video hardware. The API lets software developers quickly create games without having to know the intimate details of each

How could i put a glitters with my wall at my facebook


  • SPRAY CLEAR GLITTER ON DRY WALLS -- Go to your local craft store and pick up a couple cans of spray glitter. You want a clear base so you can keep your current wall color. Look for a spray that says something like clear glitter finish or clear glitter sealer. Then just spray your walls with the clear glitter spray.

  • PAINT YOUR WALLS WITH GLITTER SPRAY PAINT -- If you want to change the color of your walls you can spray paint them with colored glitter spray paint so you get the painting and glitter done in one easy step. However, spray paint can be expensive and you may find it is difficult to get a nice even coat of paint. So this method would be good for a small room or an accent wall.

  • PAINT YOUR WALLS THEN ADD GLITTER -- This is the cheapest way to get the glittery look you want. Buy your wall paint in the color of your choice. Then buy tubes of glitter in the craft section. As you paint your walls, do one small section at a time. Then pour out a bit of glitter on a paper plate and gently blow on the glitter so it blows onto the freshly painted wall. The glitter will stick to the wet paint. Then move on to the next section and do the same thing! If you are applying two coats of paint to your walls add the glitter to the second coat.

    My gucci phone suddenly has no power... even when I try to charge it... phone was bought in China... S888


    It sounds as though the battery has become disconnected from the phone.

    Have you dropped the phone on a hard floor or something similar?

    Have you tried looking at the battery to see if it is properly connected (has it be dislodged)? If possible, take the battery out and re-fit it (sometimes there are invisible faults which disappear when equipment is dismantled and assembled and you never really know what the problem is!)

    Is there any sign of damage to any visible wires

    I delete a page in quarkxpress 8 and it suddenly returns when i scale back through the pages. My project is 28 pages. I try to delete page 12 which is blank, but when I scroll back it returns


    quark is automatically adding pages to accommodate text that you can't see, probably a lot of invisible carriage returns. you need to delete those. do a cmd-I or choose View>Invisibles to see the mystery text.

    The following was taken from http://www.busdrivergame.com/support.php#14 Based on the below description, I believe your problem would be solved by updating your video card drivers. The ones that ship with the card on cd are always very old. Here is a link to get the new drivers from NVIDIA. You did not say, so I will assume you have Windows XP, if so, here is the link for the most recent driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html If you do not have XP, then go to this link and find one for you OS http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us If this works, I would appreciate a rating, I am new to fixya and would like to get a good rating. Thanks and Good Luck!! 14. I get a message saying: We are sorry, but the operating system failed to provide the window to render game graphics in. Bus Driver immediately crashes with a Prism3D error. There are several possible causes for this to happen. In most cases, the critical element of resolving the problem is upgrading video card drivers. (See #8 above)
    • Reportedly, some computer vendors ship new machines with the system preconfigured, but without proper drivers for the particular brand of 3D accelerator card installed, including OpenGL support. Make sure to always have proper up to date 3D card drivers installed.
    • Upgrades of certain Windows components (upgrade of DirectX, a Service Pack application) may require driver reinstallation afterwards.
    • You may have your desktop color depth (Color quality) in Windows set to 256 colors. Make sure you have Windows running in 16-bit or 32-bit color depth.
    • You may be using a very old computer with hardware capabilities below minimum specifications required to run Bus Driver.
