Hello Bear pit, i return again to you for help in these dark times.
Im an old JA2 veteran that has encountered a problem with my new rig, Ive played it on many different windows operating systems by the years, but with my new computer it just dosnt seem to go flawless anymore.
The problem im encountering is that the screen dont resfresh itself, thus making the game unplayable. Here are some pics of the problem.
I know the game is over 10 years old but im still hoping there is a cure to this problem, cause it seems rather simple,
and with windows 7 being the must now a days this will become an more growing problem so im guessing i was one of the first to encounter this weird "issue"
Here are some pics of the problem.
What i have done to try to fix this so far:
1. Clean install of JA2 from original CD (not gold version, but standar sirtech)
2. Update to 1.6 patch (tried 1.7 too)
3. Intall 1.13 Mod (newest)
4. Run as Administrator
5. Run in Compatibility mode Win 95/98/NT/xp SP2/xp SP2/Vista.
6. Downloaded Lites Codec pack
-(NEW)- 7. tried running it from another harddrive and path (custom path) d:\games\JA2PROBLEM SOLVED, TURN OFF CROSSFIRE TO GET IT TO WORK PROPERLY!And also. All of these different tips and advices from people around the forum that i have tried so far did not fix the problem OR even slightly change it. same result on every test.
-(NEW)- I might add that the trails problem witch are the main problem is that the trails have been there at all the different versions, even the clean install of the ja2 without patches or anything the trails was there.
Here are my PC speccs:
OS: Windows 7 Proff 64x bit.
MOBO: Gigabyte 890 FX a 2.1.
CPU: AMD phenom II x6 1090T 3.6ghz.
RAM: Corsair Dominator, 8gb DDR3, CL 7, 1333 mhz.
GFX: (2x) XFX HD 6950 series 2gb GDDR5, GPU clock MHz 800, memory clock 5000. (Crossfired)
HDD: (2x) Seagate Barracuda xt 2T 64MB Cache, 7200rpm.
PSU: Corsair HX 1000w.
Gear: Roccat kone (+), Roccat Apuri, Roccat kave, Razer lycosa.
I just gotta say that the 1.13 patch made by the fans of JA2 is one of the best mods there is hands down GJ!
(so you can say 1.13 is a must.)
In my opinion JA2 is one of the best games ever made, it has everything i want to be in a game thus the reason i keep returning to it just to show Deidranna whos the boss of Arulco.
I never play this game on anything else then insane for a real challenge, dont want to run through it like most new games.
I also have in my possesion the original box of JA2 and JA2: Unfinished Business, in mint condition with everything carefully stored in my glass display cage.
Just for the heck of it i'll throw in some screenshots of earlier JA2 adventures
great memories hehe!
Ive made some custom faces and some custom weapons too!
Thanks in advance!PROBLEM SOLVED, TURN OFF CROSSFIRE TO GET IT TO WORK PROPERLY!
