OFP Problems aka: Fuck Fuck Fuckety Fuck
« on: 2003-01-06 20:36:31 »

Well, I don't know if I've mentioned this to very many of you, but I've been having problems with OFP ever since I patched it up to 1.91.  What it does is drag like fuck.  The cut scene on the main menu board runs so slow it's choppy.  The mouse pointer won't track, it's jumping all over, and takes forever to do that.  When I actually get to where I want to do something, it's an adventure just to get the mouse to point to the right spot.  Nevermind the pain of joining games.



So, today, after barely restraining myself from taking a sledgehammer to my computer, I decided to undo that which had been done.  I figured, in my anger induced fuzzy logic, that the best way to fix this was to uninstall everything, reinstall the game and repatch it up to where it needs to be.  So I set out on this mission.



Well, uninstall went just fine.  No computer that I've ever heard of has ever refused to get rid of any info, with the possible exception of a virus when you want rid of it.  Anyway, on to the reinstall.  Put in the pretty, store-bought CD-Rom.  Click on the little install button.  Type in my cd key.  Click next.  Away it goes, doing what these things do.  Until...Error.  Could not install "2-5_Cooperative.Eden.pbo".  "Setup Not Complete.  Application may not run properly."  No Shit?  Fucker. Retry.  Same result.  Check the disk.  No scratches, smudges, nothing.



I'm either going to kill someone or blow my own brains out in frustration very soon.  I shot off a rather delicately worded call for help to the techies at Codemasters, but have yet to receive a reply.  Anyone ever encountered anything like this before??  With any luck (good luck, that is) you will not have.  Of course, I don't have any.  Good luck that is.

OK, I got it all worked out and I'm up and running as I should be.



And on a positive note:  My blood pressure has returned to normal.

Yeah... Codemasters... I have a ripped off copy of your software, and for some reason I can't patch it. And by ripped off I mean I have a copy of the software on another CD as a backup to the original which I conveniently lost, along with the CD key. Can you help me out? Thanks much.

mine kinda acts like i in mud when going between menus as well.  Ive never thought the graphics looked great, but thats simply the game /me thinks.  I often wonder if its fade kicking in, but if that was true Id be an even WORSE shot in game.

FADE would have warned you before starting to play up.



So Squeeky and Ghost, did Codebitches make you sign an NDA are do you just not want to explain what happened for our benefit?

Oh, sorry...Didn't realize I left ya hanging!



I got a return email from tech support saying that I wasn't specific enough in my excruciatingly detailed email to them.  They wanted me to send them my DXDiag.txt so they could see what the fuck.  I reverted back to plan A, and for some unknown reason, it worked.  It just installed no problem.  



So then I repatched up to 1.46, installed Resistance.  Patched up to 1.91 and everything is peachy-keen.  Works awesome...not dragging, and I can join MP games no sweat.



I'm basically good to go.
