Game Cheat Console by Gretzki
I can't open the game console with "~" for any game. When I was using XP that was not a problem. But what happens now? And I don't wanna hear stuff like "we don't support cheats" bla bla bla... windows vista interferes with the programming of a game. I'm really annoyed about this. I tried any other key but nothing. Is vista missing something?

Odd asian characters appear in top left and freezing by Micheal Hill
I have had exactly the same issue! The only difference is that I cannot use any key - except if i hold control; in which case I can use WASD for movement and SHIFT for sprint - however no jumping or changing of stance, and it causes the keys to ghost. For a while I thought it was something to do with the language bar, but I am not sure now. After recreating the problem a few times, I was able to...

Halo 2 Asking for disk everytime I finish the Quarantine Zone by Kefner
Everytime I finish the Quarantine Zone level, and the cut scene plays where the brutes shoot you off the edge, it comes up with a message "Please insert your original Halo 2 disk". What I have done so far is uninstall/reinstall of Halo 2, no luck. Decided I could use a fresh install of Windows anyway, so reinstalled that, and then Halo 2, still no luck. Figured maybe there was a problem...

Age of Empires 2- Units Halt by Aleihr
I could really use some help. I'm wanting to get back into Age of Empires 2 desperately but I have a bit of a problem. It doesn't matter if I use a game disk or a trial version, any unit will halt all moment and actions, standing where they are. That's when I shift the screen off of them. Can anyone help?

What does Windows Media Player need to play movies? by Brett Brown
ok, I didn't know where to post this, but I need an answer. I tried to play "You Don't Mess With the Zohan", but all I got was an error message that said "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card." Where can I get one of those?

FSX by Ted
My PC is Vista OS. I have FSX and the acceleration disc installed and it all runs very well. I'm pleased with the few branded add-ons that I have, especially the RealAir Spitfire. I'd like to get a particular helicopter on board a little French thing called an AĆ©rospatiale Gazelle. I can only find it in XP format. My question is, would it run normally if it was installed onto my Vista...

Crysis Crashes in Win7 Vista & XP by Chuck[_2_]
Anybody have any ideas? The crash data is from win7 Similar crashes occur in the other win versions. These seem to occur -- Most often in the fight on the Carrier Most often in the higher resolutions Most often during complex game play (Combat) They do not occur in Crysis Warhead. The win 7 Machine is stable with virtually all other testing and apps.
