  1. I fixed the problem. Turned out to be the now infamous Windows 7 Game Explorer bug....which is impacting quite a few games since Microsoft removed the Games Explorer server a few weeks ago. Google it, it's a common problem. There is a fix involving a registry edit. I did the edit which disable Games Explprer complely , and now NOLF2 runs fine. Basically, the Games explorer tries to find the server, fails and goes into a loop which prevents any of the games it "registered" from loading and causes a 100% usage on your cpu. Thank you, Microsoft. IThe idea of a proglram that automaticaly collects informationa about your game sucks anyway, but if you turned off the server you should have disabled the Games Explorer in a Windows update. I don't rage against Microsoft like some people, but they messed up here. Thanks for the help, though I don't think any of the fixes in the lind you posted would have helped since I have no graphic issues with the game. But, yeah, the Lithtech engine was always piacky. NOLF was the first Lithtech game that worked fairly well, and even it had problems. Blood 2 was a complete buggy mess when released.\
  2. I would love to see NOLF and NOLF2 available again (COntract Jack I did not even bother to keep my copy of), but it won't be happening until the whole legal mess is cleared up. No use getting your hopes up to have them dashed again. Both GOG and Night Drive have activelly pursued getting the NOLF games but the legal mess prevented that. Sadly, it seems as thought clearing up the copyright isuse would involve some heavy legal fees, and the parties invovled don't feel it worthwhile to spend the dought. People forget that great and the NOLF games were, and despite the awards NOLF won, they were not big sellers. And, yeah, GOG would be better; no DRM. I don't see how anybody can think that Steam is better except that steams offers more games becuase it allows DRM. But there always hope. The Soldier of Fortune games were also in Legal Limbo, but they came out of it and are now avaialbe on GOG.
  3. I have a weird problems with NOLF 2 on Windows 7 64 bit with a Nividi 650TI card. It will not start;When I hit the exe button I see the Windows loading wheel the the wheel vanished and nothing happens. I brought up Task Manager and in Applicatations I saw that NOLF 2 was running but was stalled. No Error Message, no nothing. I killed the program, and then spent a half hour playing around with compatibility settings,Nothing seems to work. I did a complete uninstall and reinstall, same result. I even tried something I was reluctant to do...I downloaded the legally dubious edition of NOLF 2 on the nolfrevival site. Same exact thing. Weird thing is that it ran fine before this happened. I don't think it was a Securom problem because Securom is enabled on my Windows 7 version, and I tried a NO CD patch (not the one from this site) same result. Not to mention the same result from the version on the revival site. I found one guy on a forum who said he fixed the problem by a weird combination of letting the stalled version run, then changing the compatialbiy setting on the NOLF 2 and Lithtech settings,reclicking the NOLF exe and for thim the game then ran. Not for me. Hopefully someone can help. if there was an error message I at least would have a clue as to the problem, but no error message. The games just does not, does not loadeven reah the first Play screen. BTW NOLF One runs fine with no problems. Posting in this section because the tech hell section here seems to be pretty dormant. Thanks in advance.
