  1. Oh, I almost forgot. I wanted to respond to the TV vs monitor thing. I have been using my OLED tv as my monitor for the last year and it has been just great. An investment for sure, but my very wise and frugal grandma used to tell me: "Even though you may not have much money it is a true-ism that in order to save money, you must spend money." Meaning that holding off until you have enough to buy quality things will ultimately save money in the long run. She knew of what she spoke.

  3. Hello all-- My old computer died a fiery death and I know from playing these games for so many years that there are some video cards, (and other things?), That just will not run the games. I apologise if the answer to my issue is already on one of the threads, I just couldn't find it. So please lend me your knowledge for I am a serious lover of battlefront and their superb work. I am also really happy to get any advice you can give on who the best gaming PC Maker's are. Have been looking so far at Falcon nw, origin, digital storm and a few others but without some good advice ab
  4. Have been playing these games for years, I mean YEARS. Love them, big Battlefront Supporter. Long story short. Win 7, older Laptop machine with Intel HD Graphics 4000 (I know, I know) But here's the thing: All the new updated versions of CM games run fine (except FI, but that seems to be install issue--John from support and I are working on it) so logically (which may not be my strongest suit) this new version of SF (2) should also work, right? The install and licensing went smooth(ish) but when I start the thing I get that most annoying, useless umbrella message "Shock Force 2 Has stopp
  5. Hey Vikingo I am having the same issue I think. But I cannot seem to find the Riva thing in any of the services or processes... Any advice?
  6. Hello All- So I have a slightly older laptop from HP that has been playing all the CM titles faithfully for years and now all of a sudden they will no longer even load (Logo pops up then--POOOF!!) get "CM Has Stopped Working and has shut down" Message. Also now get a message at Boot up "kbdsynch.exe no longer working". I have been pursuing various options with John in Tech support (Great guy everyone should praise his dedication) but so far we are stuck... What we do know (or think we know) is that it is most likely a video card/driver issue... The computer has a dual graphics card s

  8. Just to update: I just spent another 2 hours with AMD trying to fix this and after some trails and tribulations got no love--Games still do not play. Steps I went through: Ran Clean un-install program Re-installed HP Driver SP56896.exe and this does not fix it. The guy suggested re-installing the games to see if that would do it, but I wanted to get your advice first... I also had him help me try to track down which of the older AMD drivers I should have to try out. This was confusing to put it mildly. But as of now I have 2 older drivers downloaded, but I have not tried th
  9. Hey Schrullenhaft Wow, thanks so much, that's a fair bit of information. Could you help me out(in my confusion) by synthesizing it down to a couple (or as many as needed) points maybe outlining the steps I need to take and in what order you would advise performing them? That would be a big help. One thing that is clear so far is that there is no way that I have found to specify the use of only "One" card for "all" apps... Within the Catalyst controller you are able only to specify, by program (that you have already tried to run by the way--which seems stupid) whether a program uses "Power
  10. Hi MikeyD and Schrullenhaft First I just want to thanks you both for taking the time to look at this, it is very frustrating. Schrullenhaft, you are right about that dxiag file and I went searching for older ones I may have saved and I made a new one, all of which I added to the forum below. Please take a look and tell me what you see because most of it is Greek to me. AS I am sure you guys know John in tech support has a "Real Job" so his time is spare for as in depth an issue as this is turning out to be for me-- To fill you in on some history--at first it was only the Italy title
  11. Hey Ian--Thanks so very much for your time. Unfortunately John and I have also found those articles ourselves and, while it has not yet led to a fix, it is part of the current hypothesis that we are trying to piece together about how to fix this ridiculous issue. If you have any further ideas please don't hesitate, at this point any and all ideas need to be considered. Where we are right now: Partly because John does this on top of his other job, His "Real Gig", it is taking awhile for things to happen (I am doing my best to be patient) and because I am operating with some PTSD arou

  13. Hey there--Sounds a lot like the problem I am still having where all the games played just fine until 3 weeks ago and now not a single one will load!!!! I am using a computer with dual graphics cards (radeon 7850M & Intell HD 4000) and John and I from Tech support have not yet been able to fix it... We do think it has to do with the latest drivers from AMD (whose forums are full of equally bad issues---they really could care less if older titles still work according to the horses mouth) please let me know what if anything you do to fix your issue--it may end up helping me too. Good lu
