hi. having a slight issue with playing DOW which might force me to reformat. I'd recently upgraded from win98SE to XP (yes yes, stfu) and have found the transition less than satifactory.
Most of my "high-end" games such as DOW have graphical problems now. I'm betting it's because i have something 98 compatible-only installed still. or something...i dunno. that's why i post here.
Okay, my symptoms are a squad of men will constantly have units blinking out of existance graphically.
I'd obviously realized my nVidia card needed upgrading so i plugged in 91.47 reference drivers. I tried to do the old (uninstall/etc that uberjumper always talks about) but the freaking xp is sooooo annoying<ul><i>i think it cooperated on the uninstall</i></ul>Anyways, i was playing Rome:TotalWar and they suggested i try older drivers, which i did, the 84.21 drivers (the name of that file is, "84.21_forceware_winxp2k_english_whql") which sort of fixed some of my RTW issues - and fixed a rather annoying graphical glitch (remember the old homeworld cataclysm issue with the pie slice shaped visual error) but left me with that blinking unit thingie.
So, bottom line is that recommending "the newest drivers" for my graphics card will result in raspberry sound effects erupting from your computer.
I'm sure the problem is something exceedingly obvious and i'll feel like a tool for a bit.
