Hi there,

today I searched my old cd-roms and I found Alien vs. Predator, which I unbelievably never played. So I installed it on my notebook to check if this game is worth to be kept in my collection. The menu and all isn't a big problem. But when I start playing I just see indicators like radar and some scrambled up graphics. Of course I tried the compatiblity mode for win98 -did I mention that I'm using WinXP?- and some different resolution without any visible result. And on the web I can't find a patch or something like that. Does somebody have a clue?

EDIT: OK. I googled a little more and it seems that there is no solution to this problem since it is a driver based problem. My graphics card is too elite <_<

Well, I still have a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 32MB. So you could come over from Düsseldorf and we could meet in Hamburg and I lend it to you and you can try... <_<

Hmm. I always liked that game a lot! When I have DSL at home I could drag it from you maybe? Takes about seven days or something to get me quick internet until it's properly instelled.

How kind of you :w00t: Only problem is that I'm not sure if it suits into my notebook. Probably not... <_<

This really wouldn't be a problem to me. But we had to arrange a certain time so that I could be at university and be able to get into use of the fast connection. I think an iso would do the job, wouldn't it?
But is AvP already abandonware? I will not offer any warez...

Edit: Well it is not added to abandonia's olwares list... TOM HENRIK PLEASE, TOM HENRIK! Well, it's published by FoxInteractive so there's an ESA protection. But I dunno under what rule this game falls...so again: TOM PLEASE...

Actually, the reason why I didn't closed this thread on sight is that "lending" a game to someone else IRL is not illegal per se... Tough I'd close it at the first clue of warez and the like.

Aliens versus Predator: Electronic Arts 1999.
Very unlikely it's abandoned, don't you think?
The sequel (released only two years later) is still sold, anyway
