FSX/readyboost drive/performance by Heath P. Dillon
Hi, My understanding is that a ready boost drive is a usb drive that vista uses to dump data to, rather than a hard disk as the readyboost drive is considered to be faster than the hard disk. So if my comment above is true, and I can now buy a 32gb readyboost drive for $70, is it a good idea to install games such as FsX onto a readyboost drive, and get better performance than using a HDD...

User Account Control by alanrco
Having seen info on the upcomming Mafia 2 game and thinking it would be a game I'd like, I purchased (for a song :) ) the original which is now 7 years old. It runs fine on my fairly new Vista system but what is annoying is the User Account Control cancel/allow window poping up every time I want to run it. Is there a way to bypass this window for exe files that I know are ok? Thanks, Alan

Crysis problems. by Chuck[_2_]
This problem began to be noticed on vista, but the vista laptop was too slow to really get into crysis. Crashes such as this one occur on both. In additon, Crysis may also fail to menu, and be resumed with the resume game selection. This is a new win 7 system with a quad core AMD Phenom II at 3.2ghz, not overclocked, and a Diamond MM HD4890 video card also not overclocked. 4G OCX 1066 memory...

ERROR: hl2.exe has stopped working by wb0d
I just got a new computer with vista home premium on it. I installed steam, updated my graphics card drivers, and installed cs:s and it worked great for a few days. But now, whenever I try to launch cs:s, it just takes me to the menu screen and then crashes, and I get a message that says "hl2.exe has stopped working". I reinstalled steam and cs a few times. Then I heard this was an issue...

Music problems with older games by Ragnos[_2_]
Hello, guys. I have just registered after I have discovered this forum. I have a problem (which for me is a big one although nobody else seems to take notice): Older games which play their ingame music from cd, play it fine for one time and then they stop. If you want to bring it back you have to restart the game (save, quit, restart). That is annoying!!! I have noticed this in the following...

Flight Simulator X crashes at splash screen by PlasterCast
I installed FSX on vista. I've got an AMD dual core 4600 processor and 2gig of ram. I also have an nvidea Geforce 7600. When I run the game (either with or without admin and/or XP compatibility) it shows the splash screen (I think is what it's called) and it loads the scenery files (to 100%) and then has another window sorting out the scenery database, but it reaches 100% then gives "Microsoft...

FSX - 64 Bit OS by AMHOWLETT
I recently purchased a new system primarily to run MS Flight Simulator FSX. The OS on my new righ (Packard Bell iXtreme) is Vista 64bit and I am already finding out that many addon programs to FSX are not supported by 64Bit OS. My question is whether or not I should upgrade to Windows 7. Any thoughts? Thanks, Andrew

Easy way to add / manage Games Explorer by smlunatick
I'm new to Vista. I have Vista Ultimate SP2 64 bit and noticed that there is the Games Explorer. However, it does not seem to be "easy" to add or manage the games listed in it. Can anyone recommend how to do this?
