Default Re: Incompatibility with GeForce 7800 and Madden 06?

If you read the thread you'd see his problem was fixed and the solution was posted.

Basically, you have to use the affinity option since you have a dual-core CPU. You can do it the manual way by jumping out of the game, bringing up the task manager, right clicking the process and choosing the affinity option or you can use a utility like RunFirst (link provided earlier in the thread) or you can get the dual-core hotfix from Microsoft.

I only have one hard drive, so for anyone else who faces a similar issue in the future and finds this post, my target setting for the game looks like this:

C:\WINDOWS\RunFirst.exe "C:\Program Files\EA SPORTS\Madden NFL 06\madden06.exe"

If you're not sure how to get to that point, just right click on the Madden icon, choose "Properties," and then add that setting in the "target" window. And make sure that the RunFirst app is in your Windows directory, too.

Again, THANK YOU!!

Man, Me too on that! Thank You a million bucks for the fix.
