Yeah it was\is a problem with the game trying to use textures with dimensions that were non power of 2 (like 255x511). Newer graphics cards (or maybe newer versions of directX, or drisplay drivers) require textures to have power of 2 dimensions or they wont work... at least thats what I read at the time.

If you go in and resize the textures manually, they work fine. I managed to do it a couple years ago but it was such a pain in the ass trying to find which textures were broken and how they needed changed that I never got through the whole set. A couple weeks later I saw that someone on the Arx forums had released an updated set of textures that worked fine.

I have them saved somewhere on my PC but I know they're still on the internet somewhere. I'll go find a link.

BTW, there might be some high-res texture packs for this too. I remember resizing textures to double their normal size and then adding noise filters to them just to see if it'd make them more detailed and it actually worked. I guess the game uses the textures no matter how big they are as long as they are the right proportions.

EDIT: Here you go. Last post on this page:

Man thats old...

And I haven't found any high-res textures either. I guess the community support for this game has been pretty lacking over the years.

Man, This game ROCKS! Its probably one of the best FPS titles in a LONG time.

I was able to play it at 1920x1080 but the FPS dipped to low for my liking... so I switched to 1600x1024 and it runs smooth. I haven't gotten any sound stuttering or long load times either... the game loads quicker then any other Source based game for me (DODS takes FOREVER sometimes). I can see why performance is low though, the game looks amazing at times.

Some shots...

If you disable visual themes in the properties options when right clicking the mm.exe it should fix most issues aswell.

I went to local BestBuy to look for Limited Edition and they're all sold out. I went to Gamestop and they're said they hasn't arrived so last store I went was Circuit City, they had no copies.

So I txt msged my brother since he's going to his local BestBuy today and asked if he'd grab other copy for me if they have some in stock. It appears they do have them in the back, AND he got two for $49 each (not $59)!

Whoo, I'm going to visit him and my family this weekend. Hopefully I don't experience any problems some of you guys experienced. This game looks awesome.

Gamespot crapped all over it with a 6.7.

Mainly due to how buggy it is and how thin the story is. Repetitive dialog and the combat system were said to be other issues.

Still they aren't as bad as the a local TV show we have here The Cybershack. Every single game review was amazing. Even lesser titles such as Just Cause were given an equivalent 100%!
