hurricane3

is there any point?

Recommended Posts

I had a computer made for me that will run most anything with all sliders maxed.

 When I first got it FE1,CFS2 and FS9 all said they had missing DLL files( they are on an external Hard drive 2tb).CFS3 and IL2 Forgotten Battles ran fine and still do I redownloaded FS9 and CFS2 on my 1tb internal HD and they run fine.

 I put my sims outside of the program files run as administrator in XP service pack 2,with UAC off.

I tried to redownload FE1 fully patched and when I got to the action screen it said it was missing a dll file and wouldn't run.I read that Microsoft took that dll out of Windows 7 which I'am running.

 I don't understand why CFS2@3 and IL2 Forgotton battles run fin plus FS9 run great but FE1 won't.

 Bottom line is ,is it worth trying to get FE1 to work? Or should I go with ROF or OFF? Thankyou

Sorry I should have done that but since I unistalled FE1 I had forgotton the name of the DLL but I found it written down ,it's d3drm.dll


By the way how can I get my Hurricane avitar ,to not look like it was smoshed in a vise?

I went through this when I upgraded to Windows 7. Installing a lower version of DirectX does not affect how the higher version runs. 

 

The avatars want to be square, so your Hurricane is being smashed from a rectangle into a square. Try adding some white space to the top and bottom of the image to make it a square.

Your Hurricane avatar looks fine to me hurricane3...just like the old FROG kit in fact, built one many years ago, tho mine was moulded in black plastic not grey...
