Hi i have finally got hold of a copy of this game but i can't get it to start. :( It says "wargame-g4wllive.exe has encountered a problem and need to close." as soon as it tries to go full screen. I have tried everything here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/303032/ but still no luck.

Can anyone help me please? I will be gutted if i have to take it back.

Im guessing youve tried uninstalling it then installing it again.

Sounds crazy but it worked for me before with other games, if your running Vista you might want to check if its Vista enabled, because the amount of games ive brought then realised its not capable of working on vista.

Or just take it back for a new one, might be a problem with the disc. But if two people have the problem I dont really know. Ask someone in a computer shop....

Did you patched the game immediately after the install?

Thanks for the replies, i tried everything but no joy so i took it back and got cod4 instead, which runs perfectly but doesn't support 360 pad! Grrr! I might get UT3 and see what that is like..

Can anyone recommend a good fps multiplayer that supports the 360 pad?
