And, well I have to ask, is this a hacked game?
Nope this is the only Live game I have, if it weren't for this game I wouldn't even have a Live account. *laughs* And no, it's legit.

Thanks. That answers both questions

Anyway I might try to install it again at a later date. Not going to lose sleep though if it doesn't install.

Other then that BS the game ran butter smooth after reinstalling. Anyway I'm done with it, knowing I beat it is good enough for now.

But, you didn't miss anything. I seen everything you did, except Mine went straight to credits rather than back to SARAH again.
Update.....

Well I just did another playthrough on that level and this time all went well and I now have the challenge rooms unlocked. Must have been the last patch that fixed the issue.

Thats was wierd. i wonder what was actually causing it in the first place?
At any count, Im glad its working well for you now. TBH, I liked that game quite a bit. Looking forward to more adventures. Hopefully they add or offer more content in the future.


As far as Halo2, (Im assuming you have but..)
Have you tried navigating to the setup exe on the disc, and install the game as Compatability Vista SP1, and run as Admin?

I do not have the game and have nothing to really offer in regards to getting it running other than that

Its helped me in the past however for some GFWL games, especially for Fallout 3. I have wierd issues at first launch unless I install this way.

I've tried to install Halo a few ways as stated starting here- Halo 2 will not install on Windows 7

I originally tried to install it to help another poster but ran into the same problems he did. I might give it another try at a later date in time but it's not nothing I'm missing out on so....

BTW I have the latest version of Games For Windows Live installed.

Thanks.

I had to uninstall GWL . Then install GWL from the disc.
Install the game, get it up and running. Then update
GWL to latest version.

I actually tried that, didn't work. In fact I specifically stated that in a post I linked to.

Currently playing Metro 2033. Gave it a go a while back but couldn't get into it. Having nothing to play right now I figured I'd give it another try.

I had quit the game once due to the stupid gas mask bug where you can't remove it unless you have filters. That frustrated me to the point of deleting the entire game, including saves so I had to start over again.

Right now I'm in the trolley fighting the Germans. Anyway once I make it back through the library again everything from there will be new since I never finished the game.

So now that I know about that stupid gas mask issue I'll try to avoid it before advancing to the next level, otherwise I'll be stuck with a gas mask I can't get off!

I must say that the game looks good with a DX11 card. Performance is a little stutterry at times though, but I am running it at max settings at 1920x1080.

Not a bad looking game graphically speaking.
