I've just bought the Soldier
right click on the program icon (Soldier of Fortune) then click the option "troubleshoot compatibility", windows 7 will adjust the settings compatible with the games, a window will appear, click "start the program", should the program run, save the settings.
Have the same problem. This is what I have found in trying to solve the problem. It appears that it is a tracking problem and it appears that either your new "used" camera has the problem or your original camera had the problem.
A simple test would be to take another camcorder and see if the tapes play. If they do, and a recently recorded tape DOES NOT, you may just need to get another camera. Or, see if the camera can be re-tracked at a repair shop. However, be sure you have copies of your most recent tapes recorded with the bad tracking
I am having a problem.
Direct3D 6? Wow, the game must be way older than your computer. You probably installed DirectX 10 or later. There were major changes after DirectX 9. The software routines to manage graphics hardware acceleration through DirectX 10 or newer are probably very different from DirectX 6, so the game's graphic controller interface can't find them.
Try going into the game properties (right-click on the main executable file and select Properties from the pop-up menu).
Set it to run in XP compatibility mode and see what happens.
Check to see if the game has the option to run without hardware acceleration. If this provides acceptable performance, that is your answer.
If necessary (and if Microsoft still makes it available), try installing DirectX 6. Vista may snag on it and make you remove it and reinstall a newer version, but it's worth a shot if the other fixes don't work.
