and is it possible to "uninstall" if i find it bad ?

-Thanks in advance. good night
They are beta I believe, and yes they can be uninstalled.

Here is a link to the Vista 64bit download of the patch. Please, post results with this and in BF2142 Titan mode maps, which is the most common point of crashing!

Didn't STALKER have a similar problem in Vista? Wonder if this will fix that also?

Thank you verncat. I don't have BF2142, but I'll check on STALKERS problem later.

EDIT: I can't confirm it's the patch yet, but STALKER is completely unplayable now. The patch is the only thing that's changed since I played it last night.

It might be too early to tell, but I think this solved issues I had been having with BF2142 while playing a Titan map. Before this newest patch, I could load a Titan map, but it the game would crash (lock up and give me the cursor circle of death) either at the end of the round or as the next one began. It would do it every time, without fail. I just played 3 Titan maps in a row (and very long matches too), no lockups, crashes or anything at all!!!! I just need to add, too, that I installed the 163.16's as well.

Holy cow!!! If this issue is fixed, that would get rid of the only issue I have with Vista 64. Please, others try this!

Shawn

Unplayable as in won't start, or unplayable as in very poor performance?

If it won't start, had you previously run the "fix" to get STALKER to run in Vista without crashing?

They are not beta. Microsoft just released the performance and reliability patches yesterday, and I did a checksum generation on both the Microsoft downloaded files, and the ones that were leaked. The checksums matched, pointing towards that the final patches were leaked. Checksum them for your self to verify this, if you want...

Looks interesting, though I got around this mostly with the 2gig fix, this would be a more elegant solution, because of punkbusted and the whole of changing the file header...

If they are finally 'released', Vista should automatically update them for me, right?

Nope, they won't be on Windows Update for awhile from the article I saw last night. But they are final and can be found in the MS KB.
