help!
« on: April 24, 2007, 07:01:12 am »
I upgraded my video drivers a few days back (they were a year old).
Yes I deleated the old ones first AND even rebooted befor installing the new ones.

Everything other than ArmA works.

Last night was the first time after the driver upgrade I tryed to play ArmA.
The mission data would load and then crash to desktop with a MS crash report.

I uninstalled ArmA about an hour ago...cleaned all the registry and restor points...even deep deleated all the saved folders in document section.

I have reinstalled 3 times and keep getting this error when I try to load the game...
"Error compiling vertex shader VSTerain"

WTF is going on?

GFX card is 7900GT.

Well first off....when I goto maintain my system one of the last few steps is to clear the system restor folder.

Anyhow like I said all other games work fine and I have reinstalled ArmA 3 times with the same error popup when I try to run it.

Right now it is uninstalled and everything has been cleaned (same with registry).

I got that error message when I attempted to run ArmA 1.05beta with the old standard ArmA 1.05 exe

I doubt it's a gfx problem if all other DX9 games work fine.
Do they?

I can play VC.
What I want to do is play ArmA....again.

I was just getting good with spliting off from the main group and flanking the other side.

OK!
Got it to work by installing an older CLONED file and then applied the 1.04-1.05 English patch.

Looks like my 1.05 pre-patched became corrupted some how.
Installed with one of my 500 valid online keys and added the latest NO-CD and will test online after some supper.

I don't know if it can help you or if you already solved your problem, i can just tell you that i have the same problem and i solved it running the game not from the icon over my desktop but from the exe in the game folder...
the difference is that with icon it run also something else, but i'm a noob and i don't know what...
Running the game from the exe file it's ok...

Well I don't have bad karma....I don't cheat in contests or disrupt the game.
I just help admin on a cheat site...like I help admin on many game servers.

I am getting a bit fed up with some of the server admin that ban me just becuase my score is higher than THEY think it should be.
Out of respect for Aussy Dave ,K@os,Kiwi and others I only unban myself and go back to learning to play.
If they were not involved with these servers I would allow my urge to teach the other admin some respect take over my actions.
