if you have any thing goin on in the background that could be it aswell so i think that could be it or you could need more CPU for you conmputer or even you might need more RAM for you computer/laptop

well, it hasnt been fixed, even on TFD, becaue I patched mine and everything, tried every way to start up the game, compatability, eveyrthing, and this thing still freezes on the loadup screen, without fail.

Doesn't freeze with me. I have yet to experience ANY problems with TFD.

 

 

 

Well, I did have one. The way the map maker for RA1 wasn't properly incorporated, any time I'd try to load it, my printer would start spewing out paper randomly, I don't know why. :P

well its the loading screen for the game itself. I cant even get to the menu screen, it alwasy freezes on the pic of the Kirovs over the Statue of Liberty (headed away form the US, but thats a nother story) or the one with the Genetic mutator turning men into Brutes. Either way, it always freezes at that point, and annoys the hell out of me

have you run it w/o problems before? and did you say it was TFD for you or regular RA2?

they both used to work, and now neither of them work, both of them now freeze at exactly the same loading screen, I dont know what it is, it might be the fact that when you delete something, it doesnt delete, and when you reinstall, the comp just reloads the older stuff, so if something went wrong somewhere, it's still broken. Patches and updates have not fixed either of them, and to be honest, I've given up on RA2, I've just been playing and modding TS/FS in recent weeks.

I'll get the freezing thing son=metimes, but it's usually after I have been playinfg for some time. Usually it happens at a time of major explosions (like 4 tech oil depots going all up at the same time or perhaps a nuclear silo). Updated drivers doesn't seem to be the solution.

 

I really wish that there was a patch that adressed the incompatability issues with XP.

It works fine with XP, and you can always run in it compatability mode if it doesnt.

 

I think in your case its either your processor, your ram, or a really slow soundcard that slows things down (hey it can happen, but damn thats gotta be an old sound card)

XP Home < XP Pro

 

a little something i've noticed on my comp vs my friends, I have XP pro, he has Home, and mine just seems to be better (all hardware differences aside)

I have a P4 3.2 GHz, 2 GB Ram,

Built in Realtek AC'97 audio

NVidia GeForce 7800 GS AGP

Windows XP Home

 

:shrug:

 

I think it has something to do with the soundcard, I got exactly the same problem as you, and I got a built in Realtek AC'97 audio card.. And I read somewhere that it could be the soundcard.
