I downgraded my OS to Windows 7 just so i can play Ra2 lol and have run into yet another problem. When i launch Ra2 it goes into a black screen where i can press buttons but nothing shows.
I tried to follow NeoGrants steps for the display options but when i click detect, nothing happens and the other gray message/monitor icon doesn't appear. None of the drop-down menu options listed in the thread or shown in the video on youtube are there.
I Applied the Windows XP compatibility SP2 settings on the .exe files (mph, ra2 and game) . Ran them as administrator still didn't work.
Somewhere on another thread I saw someone saying that certain features like directdraw and direct3d acceleration are supposed to be enabled to play old games. When i did a dxdiag check it showed that DirectDraw acceleration and Direct3D acceleration were not available. Not sure if this is the cause of the problem, but figured someone may have insight if this matters at all.
Also does anyone know if a graphic/video driver issue could be causing this black screen issue? After I installed Windows 7 I had to manually download the drivers and there could have been an issue with that.
Any help would be great.
