I am having problems with playing mutiplayer on vista. it logs into game spy just fine but when i try to make a new game it crashes? Why? i would like to see this and a few other vista problems added to this file.

Ok I will update this issue soon, until then make sure your network firewall has proper ports open for GSA == Game Spy Arcade. Then turn off Vista internal firewall / add exemption. Which eve is easier.

@2 That hasn't anything to do with the the ports this time, guess only thing will help ya out is the unofficial 1.2.5 patch from the FleetOps team.

I downloaded the guidebook and applied the compatibility fix (run as XP SP2). The game now plays on Vista 64-bit! Thanks for the info. I had forgotten about the "compatibility fix" option, so much appreciated.

Will this patch allow A2 to run on Windows 7 64-bit?

If not, is there one in the works?

A1 only has 256 colors on win 7!

A2 only has 256 colors on win 7 at the start until you load up a game then there will be 32bit colors!
