How can I get this to work on windows 7


Hi,

uninstall it from your system, then right click on the installer and click on "compatibility mode". Then choose Windows XP or Windows 2000. But that doesn't work all the time but it sure is worth to try!

I bought act of war direct action in 2009 through steam and it worked fine for a while now when i try to launch it it wont launch and every time i verify integrity of the game it says its always missing...


If you are checking the integrity, STEAM should replace the file if it finds a missing or changed file. I am not sure why it would not.

If its not letting you fix the file from the integrity check, find any saved games you have (could be in my documents folder if not in steam) and re-install the game via steam. Right click - uninstall, then install. This will fix the problem.

Installation is not the problem. It's the thing that it is OLD game already as people are on Call of Duty 5. Anyway, you might want to download this patch and see if it does the job: http://www.gameupdates.org/details.php?id=2548

THIS IS THE FIX for Act of War and High-Treason

look no further, here is the solution for the memory and video memory crash. You need to go to your game location:
1- For steam users its Program Files (x86) >> Steam >> steamapps >> common >> Act of War High treason (else its the normal
Program Files (x86) >> Atari >> Act of War High treason and right click on ActofWar_HighTreason.exe and put the compatibility mode on one of the Vista.

2- Download
http://cns-spb.ru/d3d9.zipand put that .dll file in same location. Remmember to store this file for later use, since we dont know how long the link will be up and spread the massage since there are many who has trubble running this game.


Works at least on W7 Ultimate x64 sp1

I bought a new computer, and downloaded this game from 2004,


There is a program that can read all installed CD-keys from your old computers hard drive. Just remove hard drive from old computer and install it to external case, docking station or even inside the new computer. If Act Of War Direct Action is there in the registry this program will find it.

Want to play god of war 3


God of War 3 has been announced, but hasn't been released yet. It has been announced for PS3, not PS2. It will not be compatible with your system. If you want to play it, you will have to purchase a PS3.
