Windows 7: Soldier of Fortune (1999) on Win 7 x64

Soldier of Fortune (1999) on Win 7 x64

Hi... My all-time favorite game SoF, a 10 year old FPS, doesn't seem to want to run on Win 7 x64. - I've tried all compatability modes, but no luck so far.

It installs fine, but when I try to run the game Win 7 tells me: "SoF has stopped working" - with no further info.

Can't be true I can't make this game run huh!?

Does anyone know a way around this problem? - Maybe you've experienced the same or close to?

Win7 Home Premium x64

I had the same problem with SoF and Windows 7 x64, until I found this thread about some other old OpenGL games and Nvidia-based graphics cards:
Fixes for RtCW Single player and Quake II (OpenGL):

Specifically, I was able to get SoF working by using the "nHancer" program to create a profile for the game, and using the settings for Quake II in the first post of that thread, about texture clamp and "driver extension limit" 11a8.

Good luck.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Still not working for me

Hi folks, this fix is not working for me, becuase i can not install Nhancer. This is the message.

Any idea?

"The current active display driver ('igdumg64') is not compatible with Nhancer"

What I did to get SoF working was rename Sof.exe to mohaa.exe

Worked like a charm for me. Good luck to you

Almost forgot....before the rename, copy the sof.exe to another folder. Rename the sof.exe still in it's original location to mohaa.exe then move the copied sof.exe back. I had to do this cause the game wouldn't start without it. Run the game using mohaa.exe

this trick works for all Quake 2 engine games so far except Quake 2. I have an ATI card

Win 7 Pro x64

Renaming the file and trying to get nhancer to run didn't work for me.

I did get it to work using nvidia inspector.
Create a SOF profile, go to Common and change Extension Limit to ON.

That is all that was needed, I didn't have to run compatibility mode either.
