One issue I have had with vista is the color schemes. Sometimes when I play a video with VLC media player, I get a msg saying the color scheme has been changed temporarily to Vista Basic due to rendering compatibility issues. Perhaps your game has the same compatibility issue. If that is the problem, then one thing I would check is your color scheme, and try playing your game with the most basic settings (display and color) and see if that helps. Also I would try updating your display driver if you haven't already.

Where can I download a patch for starwars battle front II that allows me to play it on a vista computer.


There is no patch, but supposedly this is the process for getting the game to work in Vista:

Many Vista users including myself have claimed Battlefront II won't work in Microsoft's latest operating system by a year, Vista. The alleged problem was that when attempting to play any game (load a map), whether online or single player or compaign, the map wouldn't even load- the game would immediately stop and "crash" to the desktop (meaning the game just closed). But the Menus work fine in Battlefront II, so why can't any games, meaning maps, load?

People have found some solutions. Some people say that disabling sound within the game solves the loading issue, which it does, BUT all future gameplay is without sound. I've found a solution to the problem, at least for some Vista users who may find themselves lucky as I did.

Here's my solution. Keep in mind this is for Windows Vista users ONLY:

Go to START,
then click on CONTROL PANEL.

Be sure you aren't under "classic view" for the control panel. You know if you are not in classic view if you see categories such as "System Maintainence" and "Security." If you haven't tampered with the settings, then your most likely not in the classic view.

Anyway, then click on HARDWARE AND SOUND,
and then click SOUND.
A window will pop up.
Navigate to the RECORDING tab in the top,
then RIGHT CLICK on some open white space
and select "Show Disabled Devices."
Hopefully, if you are still in the RECORDING tab,
a new icon will appear called "STEREO MIX."
RIGHT CLICK on the SETEREO MIX icon and select "Enable."

And wippity bang! Hopefully, this guide was of some help to other once-hopeless Vista users. Happy playing, and may the force be with you all!

I have a game which doesn't play on windows vista, i have acer aspire 3683wxmi laptop?


Is this some kind of problem for you? Vista is fierce serious! Perhaps it does something more disruptive than playing, though?

Hi, I have just recently purchased


Some of the games for windows games which support controllers are ridiculously finicky. Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge moto gp 07 is one of those. There may be a workaround pushed into an update somewhere though, so make sure your game is fully updated.
