View Full Version : Help needed
10-08-03, 04:29 PM
Would be great if someone could help me out here. Basicaly have upgraded my onboard video to a GeForce FX 5200. Quite pleased that I managed to configure the BIOS and did something in safe mode. Well that got it working but how do I know if it's working right cos Vice City looks like it's been hit by a vortex. Starts okish then just goes stupid. Got the latest drivers and don't know where to go from here. Is there something I can download to test its' performance? Beleave me I have spent a lot of time looking into this. What's more Spinter Cell comes with the card and on 3 discs which are used for loading. Go to play it and it asks for the Play disc! Jeez, I didn't know gaming was this good!
Like I say, any help would be very apreciated.

Vice City : download the 1.1 patch from RockStar, FXs have all sorts of issues with VC 1.0 .
Splinter Cell : Since you have the original CDs, I guess downloading and installing a nocd crack couldn't be considered as a crime. You may also check which CD is actually labeled "Game CD" or "Play", you never know...

Seriously, check for a play disc or game cd like someone said.

So, er, whats a cdcrack? And more to the point where does one download one though more to the point would I recognise one if it hit me in the face? Will try that download from rockstar, cheers for that mrsabidji. The splinter cell cds are simply labled 1-3 and none of them are recognised as the play disc. rampant and ultimo give me some credit, I mean like I haven't asked how to download a mousemat...

Now did you update the game to the 1.2b patch which fixes some cd recongizing problems? From what i've Googled, the 3rd disc should be the play disc.

I've done the rockstar patch and that seems to have sorted out vice city, big big thanks to you all. ultimo, whats the 1.2b patch?
