I just loaded Rouge Spear onto my computer. I got the Platinum Pack. the problem is when I try to play it the mouse arrow and when moving. the mouse moves really slow. so then I loaded Mission pack: urban operations when it goes to load the mission the game just shuts down. Did I get a pos? my computer has plenty of room to handle it.

Ahh... screw it... get Medal of Honor: Allied Assault.  Runs fine in XP.

Is this like a secret language, or room. I don't even know what is going on here.

Argh Allied Assault is the nastiest buggiest POS! Grrrrrr! It runs horribly on my computer with ME & I sure ain't putting XP on so Microsoft can bugger around with my defaults and programs...

Sorry 'bout that, but I do feel better now.

RB6 isn't the same kind of game as Allied Assault. AA is a hoot, but definitely more beer and pretzels compared to RB6.

you're running ME?  THAT is your problem.  XP is a much better platform.   This is my PROFESSIONAL opinion as a technician.

If you think MS can mess with your stuff in XP, I three words:  Third Party Firewall

As suggested definitely download and install the latest patch.

Determine which Video card is in your computer and install the latest drivers for it (check the manufacturers websiste for files and instructions)  

Check the readme file that came with the game for any known issues with your particular video card.

RB6 and Ghost recon are both pretty picky about hardware, but they're a lot of fun when working properly.

For the record, Medal of Honor, Allied assault is the best damn computer game ever put out, bar none.  Just had to get my .02 in.

I run it just fine without the patches.

BUT R6, and Ghost Recom take lots of memory. Realistically much more than the minimum requirements.

Go into "options" and turn down background music and as many graphics options as you can sacrifice. If that improves things, it is definitely a memory problem. And it usually is.

Go get Half-life and download Day of Defeat mod. Best WWII game out !!!

Im still waiting for Hidden & Dangerous 2. I get bored quickly with "Rambo" shooters. OFP and Ghost Recon get more play then MOH:AA, RTCW, and other similiar FPS-including the highly overrated Half-life. Operation Flashpoint alone is more enjoyable then any of those click fests. Just my tastes i suppose. played to many FPS games on the console.

Rouge Spear is fun in deathmatch. Always enjoyed sitting far out into a corner with the Draganov and pick off the pesky MP5 users. [sniper]

Did the patches, dowloaded latest drivers still won't work. Redstorm.com says XP will not supportRB6 or rouge spear, but I know some people get it to work

If its like my copy of GR you should try setting it to 16 bit mode for the moniter/system, not ingame option.

i'm running rogue spear and rogue spear urban ops on a gateway 500x with pentium4 and XP, most of the time, i have no problems, but if you play the game for more than 40 minutes, the movement gets jerky and starts slowing down, also occasionally, the audio gets this annoying, loud "feedback" type noise that won't go away, so i just turn the volume off for a while.
