Race Driver - Grid in Windows 7

I just installed it and when I ran the game for the first time, at the menu screen it was all black. My screen was all black! I couldn't see anything! Could you guys plz help me? It's a really good game and I don't want to miss out on it.

hey, I'm installing it now so I'll post back how it went after. I'm almost sure it was working well in my previous Win 7 installs.

Cool to see another on here as I'm from Nassau too.

Grid works fine for me in 7000 and 7068 64 bit . My problem is my Nostromo games controller won't work with it,even though it is recognised and i can adjust it etc

I will be following this thread to see how you get on, as i need my Grid fix, and would prefer to be able to get it without having to boot to XP.

Good luck.

Yeah. It works great for me and I had the same contoller problem. Until I figured out that you have to remap the controls by hand for each button (accelerate, braking, power brake etc...)

Game now works a treat for me. 1680x1050, mostly default settings, some advanced ones raised and I'm getting about 20 fps which seems alright.

Windows Vista 64bit / Windows 7 RC 7100

Can anyone confirm if this works on RC 64bit? It seems to have an issue on my setup but there could be multiple reasons for that. Just wanted to see if anyone got it running. Well go from there. Thanks!

Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Grid works flawlessly here on 7127 x64. Have you managed to sort it evanspec?
You may want to consider updating from the 7068 build to a more recent one, either 7100 or 7127, although grid has worked on all my builds up to now.

You may also want to try updating gpu drivers.

Let us know how it goes.:)

Windows 7 Build 7100 RC x86 OS

Aight, I haven't updated the version of the OS yet. I also have just taken the files off my computer. The funny thing is I just installed the original Sims game on my computer.

If anyone wants confirmation that GRID works in Windows 7 RC 64bit:

I have my team that I start playing last week, I currently have $3359124 and have already fired 3 teammates, and I have won 34 races in 45 attempts, and have 12 trophies.

And it has never ever giving me so much as a hiccup. And I have not patched it from retail, either.

I downloaded the demo of Race Driver - Grid from the Codemaster's web-site. While it installed and lets me create a profile, to start the game it states "Loading", with no hard-disk activity and just stops at that point. Leaving it for 10 minutes results in nothing happening. Anyone else experience...
