I have a decent system (Athlon XP 1800+, 512MB DDR, nVidia GeForce 4 MX420 64MB video card, SB Live! card) running Windoze XP, and this game (and Return to Castle Wolfenstein) lock it up hard! At the most basic settings! GRRRR!!! I run Ghost Recon at 1280x1024 with all the bells & whistles, but this game I can't even run at 640x480! No help on the EA website either... looked like a good game, too. Don Out!

Ever since I even installed XP recently I can't even get MOH to work. Some OpenGL crap. Any ideas?

there was a line to put in the config file of the Wolfenstein CFG file. I'll try that & post the results. I just loaded the latest detonator drivers for the video card, still no-go.

I would suggest the following: 1.) Go to [url]www.guru3d.com[/url], go under files and get latest driver for video card. 2.) Update the bios for your motherboard. 3.) Update motherboard drivers. This usually helps. Oz

You'll need to update your video drivers. Cruise over to Nvidia's website or check out www.windowsupdate.com

So far, I have: Flashed the bios for the MB updated the VIA drivers for the MB chipset Loaded the 12/03/02 video drivers. I did Network Admin and HW support for 10 years when I was out of the Army... I think it has something to do with the Quake 3 engine and XP, maybe a memory leak? No other games do anything but run like a dream...

I had the same problem and upgraded to the new 128m video card and WOW!!!! Problem solved and now my computer runs real smooth. Hope that helps.

Have you tried the new Via Hypervision Hyperion 4in1 Driver? I had a couple problems here and there and they cleared them up for me. The driver name I am talking about is located at [url]www.guru3d.com[/url] under files, under chipsets IIRC. The name of the file that I got was "VIAHyperion4in1445v.exe" Oz

I managed to get it working with my 3DFX Voodoo3 (Yeah, I know - upgrading soon) Basically my suggestion is: Make sure a copy of opengl32.dll is living in the MOHAA directory. Err, rather I should say experiment with different versions of opengl32.dll - don't install the drivers just extract that file. OpenGL looks in the game dir first before it loads the xp system driver. You might try this one [url]http://www.nationwide.net/~montroll/quake3/q3test/drivers.html[/url] just rename that file in the MOHAA dir.

Make sure you've loaded the latest service pack for Win XP. I see a lot of posts to the America's Army board regarding video problems with XP and not having the latest service pack is a recurring theme. Best of luck!

My computer 900mhz GF2 MX400 256mb sdram windows XP Runs Return to Castle Wolfenstein and MOH/SH just fine. I run most of my games in Medium setting due to a lack of speed and RAM. 110

Does anyone know where I can get the single player version? I had it before but now all I can find is the multi player version.

Make sure you have the latest sound card drivers for the SB card. Soundblasters can cause a lot of game trippiness if you don't have the latest drivers for them.

I run MOHAA on both of my XP machines, and so does a friend of mine. No problems whatsoever (also have run RTCW). I even have a SB Live card and haven't had any problems either (I run a 1ghz Athlon with 320mb ram and a GF3 vid card). Can't imagine it being a XP problem, I'd have heard more about it. Too many people running XP and MOH... No such problems listed on any of the MOHAA websites and forums. You can go ahead and try searching the boards at www.alliedassault.com and www.planetmedalofhonor.com however, maybe you can get some help there. Make sure you're not running any applications in the background on loading windows that are causing problems. I assume you know how to use msconfig to remove startup crap.

I had a similar problem with Counter Strike when I upgraded from a geforce256 to a geforceII 64mb. The new card looked great but ran like crap...10fps. I played with the settings within CS and that fixed everything. Make sure that the game itself is running the right driver. You can have it choose a mini opengl driver or a directx driver. Play with the settings within the game.

maybe reinstall it using XP's OS compatibility thing to make it run like win98 for that program? I don't know the details but I heard XP has that feature. I think if you right click the exe file you can select it

I can run both Wolfenstein and MOH on my computer with no problems at 1024x768 (I have an old monitor) and high graphics and audio details win98se, 256mb ram, 64mb geforce 2 Ti, SB live value, 500mhz P3. I have the original display driver that shipped with the card (I bought it in Nov 2001) original mobo drivers, original SB drivers (mobo and sb live are both about 3 years old) so I'd be leaning towards XP not being a great gaming OS

Obviously you don't know much about computers, XP is the most reliable OS ever. People need to learn how to patch their OS and download drivers. That's what people need to learn to do.
