Ok, I getting some fucked up shit whenever I try to play CWH. I just got it at circuit city, installed it, etc.. The first time I started it, it started in windowed mode. That was strange, I've never seen a game default to windowed mode right after install. After that, I went full screen, and tried to bring it up to 1680x1050. Nothing. Every time I applied the changes, it would default bac to full screen 1280x7-something. I tried to restart the game, and when I started it back up, I literally couldn't move my mouse to the left half of the screen. Also, most of the buttons are unresponsive, so I can't change what few settings I can reach. This is really fucking pissing me off. I just got my new 4870, and I ended up wiping my steam hard drives due to some problems I had with software raid under vista, so I lost all of my games. My internet in my dorm is so shitty that installing any game is going to take a few days, and if I quit steam than it for some reason needs to start the DL over again. I went out and got warhead so I could actually use my new card, and now it won't fucking work. Also, I couldn't find any patches, have they really not patched it yet? any ideas for a fix besides a reinstall?

    Slightly off-topic: I didn't know that you lived in a dorm... at least you have full internet access, no matter how shitty. I can't get Steam or any online game to work in multiplayer, and I need a proxy for... 'alternative downloads'. Count yourself lucky :(

    second

    If that does not work do this:

    1. Add -dx9 into your shortcut
    2. Run the game and set your resolution and other settings.
    3. Exit and replace -dx9 with -dx10 in the shortcut
    4. run and enjoy

    The new patch should have addressed this issue.
