    man, i didn't mean that you must duplicate it every hour in the same thread.

    looks like you downloaded your r3full.exe wrong. download it again.

    Re: start problem

    1 is a mystery to me too.

    2, you probably have to re-install Launcher again. Also you might want to tick off the "transition effects" thing which causes problems with XP. And you also might want to check the processor cooling, since the WB is notorious about CPU usage, and processor overheating might cause the problem n:eek: 2.

    Try installing launcher again....

    firewall? you do have FHL1.6something....the newest anyway...?

    And you're certain that FHL (shows up when installed IMMSMR) knows where the Ien stuff is?

    Disable AGP Fast Writes in the System bios:
    this is usually under chip set or PCI settings.

    Disable AGP Write Combining:
    For the Latest Nvidia Forceware Drivers this is under
    display properties -> settings tab -> advanced -> troubleshooting
    and may only show up under certain hardware / driver combinations

    Disclaimer:
    These tweaks may only help certain hardware / software combinations, the result for me was improved fallout 1 stability and a reduced number of blackouts. Both of these settings give only a very small performance boost = 1 and can have nasty system stability side effects so there is really not much reason to leave them on.
