    sorry um i bought the desperate housewifes game and it wont load because apparently my video card in the comp isnt fast enough. I've read lots of comments online and read there was a patch that could override it. so i downloaded the patch but it wouldnt also install because of an invalid registry?? I can not install the game what so ever. I have tried on a desktop and a laptop.

Hi,
Now unfortunately it seems this has happened to a lot of people. They now list all compatible cards on their website. As far as pathches there isn't a patch that is going to help. Buena Vista posted on their website the reason the game might not work. The reason Buena Vista claimed the game does not work is because of the System Checker identifying the video card as not supporting either Vertex or pixel shader technology. This means you either meet the requirements or you don't. If you have a desktop computer you may want to consider upgrading the video card to one that will work so you can play games like these. A new card can be bought for as little as 40$. If you have any other questions please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

Hi!

Can you give more details on the error you are getting? Have you tried reinstalling the game also?

How can i get the online patch to use my characters now that online is no longer available


The patch should download automatically when your system is connected to the internet. It won't bring back your characters, but will fix any issues that they had to patch.

New computer has windows 7. When I try to use Word Whomp disk it tells me it is not compatible. Is there a patch I can get?


I can't seem to find a patch but try right clicking on the program, going to properties -> compatibility and running it in XP or Win 98 compatibility mode.

There is actually an online flash version:

Error 80023017 is (as far as I can tell) a maintenance issue. So my guess is that we will have to wait for Sony to patch this with another update. Until then, you cant get online.. It's because you updated to version 3.50.

Cant play on line


This is from the official websites support forum. Many people have had issues letting the game patch it self. Follow these instructions and you can patch it outside of the game.


Firestorm has no patches available. Tiberian Sun. however, does have one. There are three ways to patch the game.
  • You can run the auto-patch program.
    1. Click on the Start button.
    2. Select All Programs.
    3. Select the Westwood folder.
    4. Click on the game you want to update.
    5. Select Auto-Update.
    6. The game should now automatically patch.
  • If you play online, through Westwood's servers, you will receive the latest update of the game (if one is available) automatically, each time you log on.
  • If you still cannot get the patches you can retrieve them from our FTP site.
    1. Click here to access the ftp site.
    2. Click on the patch needed:
      • TS203 for Tiberian Sun
      • There is a two letter code at the end of the patch this is representative of the language of the patch.
        • ES : Spanish
        • DE : German
        • EN : English
        • FR : French
    3. Select Save in the window that pops up.
    4. In the Save As window make sure Desktop is selected in the Save in: section at the top of the window.
    5. Click Save and the patch should save to your desktop.
    6. Once it is saved to the desktop, double-click on the patch's icon to install it.
