  1. Seems like your computer might have a low profile PCIe slot, so the selection of available cards is more limited. You might not want a power hungy graphic card since PSU is only 250w or 265w, so the model Eliteone mentioned is a good option since they are often low profile, consumes little power and are less expensive. Geforce cards usually runs nolf without issues. This isn't a awesome graphic card in any way and will not run new games all that well, but still a lot better than the intel chip. The low profile grahic cards seems to be available as GT 1030, GTX 1050 and GTX 1650 If you plan on running newer games, but they cost more ofcourse and we're talking about 70-90w extra power drain from the PSU with the GTX 1650 while GT 1030/GT 730 draws around 30-40w. So be careful with that. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071DY2VJR?tag=idaptweb-20&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1 Even the GT 1030 recommends a 300w PSU..
  2. Sounds like Lithtech.exe is denied write and maybe read access to autoexec.cfg. Try to set Lithtech.exe to run as administrator and make sure that the game folder itself isn't set to read only. Hope that helps
  3. Updated the german version to also have IDS_ALLOW_NO_GORE set to FALSE now The Italian one was set to FALSE already, the other values were correct from the beginning. Still can't find any Blood/milk translation. 30 entries mentions blood and they are all correctly translated. Maybe this is in nolf2/CJ? Haven't looked at those translations.
  4. I checked: IDS_YES_VK_CODE "89" (id 750) IDS_NO_VK_CODE "78" (id 751) IDS_ALLOW_NO_GORE "FALSE" (id 752) Everything was set to this except ALLOW_NO_GORE was TRUE in the german version. (Changed this to false) Couldn't find any translation where it said milk instead of blood either. Which ID is this?
  5. Thanks for pointing that out, I'll check it out

    NOLF 1 Not Working

    All versions will actually run in windows 10 when updated to 1.004, but the versions below (and updates up to 1.003) came with a 16 bit installers which won't run in newer versions of windows. However when the game is installed and patched up to 1.004, it should work. The 64 bit regkey is different though. So just adding the 32 bit regkey won't work. You need to add Wow6432Node\ in the regkey path on windows 7 or newer. Just edit the regkey before installing it. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Monolith Productions\No One Lives Forever\1.0\ The WorkingDirectory path needs to be correct as well, default would be "C:\Program Files\Fox\No one Lives Forever\" I believe. Change it to where your nolf install is located. Here's my working windows 10 nolf.reg file for reference: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Monolith Productions\No One Lives Forever\1.0] "GameOfTheYear"=dword:00000001 "WorkingDirectory"="D:\\NOLF" "Update Command Line"="-rez Nolfu003.rez -rez Nolfcres003.rez -rez NolfGoty.rez" "Version"="1.004"
  7. If you load modernizer with the GOTY translations (cres.dll), stuff like INTERFACE, JUKEBOX and other menu items won't show up ingame. This is due to new language strings that were added with modernizer. And without a assigned translation, these menu items have no text to display and will therefore be invisible. These files are the Modernizer 1.006 patch 3.1 release from Hey Jake with updated cres.dll files to support Italian and German languages. I made a database that contains all translations I knew of, and were able to generate new Resource files for compiling new CRES.DLL files. The new lines and some of the old translations that were missing were translated by Gassosa (Italian) and Icepick (German) Thanks for all help! Download Italian Modernizer 1.006 patch 3.1 Download German Modernizer 1.006 patch 3.1 Both files were packed with Winrar You will need a program that can extract winrar archieves to unpack the files. The only difference between these files and the original modernizer is the new CRES.DLL, otherwise its a full version of modernizer. And you can join the 1.006 multiplayer servers with this mod loaded. ---- If anyone feels like updating the Polish, Swedish, French or Spanish version, these are the new lines: IDS_CONTROL_CONSOLE "Toggle Console" IDS_ACTIONSTRING_CONSOLE "ToggleConsole" IDS_WINDOWED_MODE "Windowed Mode" IDS_HELP_WINDOWED_MODE "Enable or disable windowed mode."

    Unlike Nolf1 and Nolf2 that store the master server info in CSHELL.DLL, Contract Jack uses a file called Gamespy.dll to store master server info. This means that you can alter this file without changing the actual game version. (no mod needed). A simple string edit changed the file from looking for Gamespy to instead contact Qtracker and will let you connect to servers without having to use the Qtracker software or windows hosts forwarding. Here's a patched gamespy.dll that goes in the Contract Jack base directory. I'd call it beta for now. Remember to back up the original gamespy.dll, backups are always a good idea Progress so far: - Patched out gamespy urls with qtracker ones. - Works well for the joining players. - You can use mods like normal - Game stays at the retail v1.1 if no other mod is loaded. Bug: I had issues maintaining server heartbeat when hosting sometimes, Works like a charm when a player is online but if server is left alone empty for a period of time it sometimes disapear from the ingame query. the Qtracker uplink tool should take care of that though, this could have something to do with how qtracker register heartbeats as as well. Not sure.
  9. Nice thing about ISO is that you can just unpack them with winrar, no need to mount.
  10. Hehe, yep. that stuff works out of the box again now

  12. Happy to help Also remember to check out multiplayer as well, we play saturdays from aound 4PM EST / 9PM GMT and sometimes during the week as well.
  13. Any luck? You could also try to activate the ingame intel graphics fix in modernizer.. Intel chips have the black screen under water problem as well.
  14. Sorry for the late reply, I was able to run all versions of nolf no matter what display adaper I chose. My computer is older than yours though. This could be something worth mentioning to Hey Jake if you can't get it to work.
  15. AMD graphic cards and Nolf can be interesting due to lack of directx9 support in some drivers. From what I understand, this was fixed for some chipsets with driver updates. Not sure about the current state of the VEGA chip (which you most likely have) Some people also made it work with DGVoodoo, but modernizer also fix bugs when it comes to disapearing AI and various other stuff such as multiplayer. So I suggest trying a combination of the 2, if modernizer doesn't fix this alone. Make sure you also have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 installed if modernizer is acting up. We haven't seen the last modernizer update yet though, it is still being developed
  16. My alienware uses the same thing, I'll test if I can get nolf running on that computer.
  17. You should also be able to see multiplayer servers now
  18. Have you tried running Modernizer 1.006? There is a fix for scope and widescreen support there. (not camera yet) You most likely don't have to run dgvoodoo solution. This fixes some things but mess up other things such as shadows. There is a built-in 'intel graphics' fix in the update. https://heythere.coffee/nolf/
  19. Thank you! I had a peak in the map, could be in a secret area? I found a few of those in there.
  20. Good to hear, it should also run with modernizer as far as I know..
  21. You could try to run the game with the DGvoodoo configuration. As far as I know it doesn't run perfectly but hopefully better.. Worth a try I Guess

    I wrote a tutorial about that subject a while back. https://spawnsite.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=642
  23. From what I could find, it seems like AMD's display driver have issues with DirectX9 and probably older versions as well. They describe the same issue here. https://community.amd.com/thread/246427 Looks like they made a updated driver recently
  24. Have you tried modernizer / unofficial patch 1.006? https://heythere.coffee/nolf/ This is a update that makes nolf more compatible with windows 10
  25. Do the launcher query qtracker as well?
