SlasherIT, im not going to do what you said because ive already reinstalled everything that COUOLD cause this, plus your sharing what looks like an unsafe link, so I wont click on that. The big problem here is that this game woked the day before I updated to SP1, and now that im in SP1 it no longer works. This looks to me like a problem a microsoft employee needs to answer, however they refuse to answer their own forums, so thats why im here. I know something in the service packs string of updates caused this, its just finding WHAT it is and letting them know about it. Now personaly, I dont feel like wiping my whole PC just to find what specific update caused this issue, I've had help from everyone I possibly could have EXCEPT a MS employee, ive tried EVERYTHING. So much for compatability mode, huh.
