    already tried the win 95 compatibily mode and the second win fix in the options but no changes here...

    i m using win 7 64 bit and an modified WC SO version (openGL patch.. and it works fine with prophcy und SO)

    thanks.​

    Hi there. Sorry to hear you have problems running Standoff. Have you let the launcher install every automatic update available ? I remember having fixed a few compatibility settings issues for 64-bits systems in the lastest patches...

    yes i let the updater install to... i think 1.33... then no new update message did appear

    i have installed SO and standoff to C:\Program Files\Origin Systems\Secret Ops

    i m using the opengl mod for Secret Ops and Prophecy so maybe there is a problem in compatibility??

    this one --> OpenGL Patch

    Well, first thing first: you should avoid installing old games like Prophecy and Secret Ops in "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)", else Windows may try to sandbox the modifications into a virtual folder redirection, which can cause problems. Uninstall Secret Ops, reinstall it in a folder like "C:\Games\Secret Ops" or something like that. (if you feel confident enough in your IT skills you may move the folder and edit the registry keys accordingly, but just to be safe, better reinstall)

    I made the most recent OpenGL patch compatible with Standoff/UE or any newer fan project if there is ever one, so it should not be a compatibility problem.

    Oh and one last thing... you can check in the System properties -> Advanced tab -> Performance settings button -> Data Execution Prevention tab : make sure the first option (Turn DEP on for essential Windows program and services only) is selected.

    Please check theses things out and report back !

    THIS should be the very top sticky post in every technical help message boards these days. No, make that a page that's shown before you even get access to any of these forums.

    is it possible to download the standoff patches manually? I haven't found any on the standoff website.

    Thanks :)

    The game launcher has an auto-patcher. You update through the launcher.

    1.33 is the current version.

    Well, the thing is, my patches are incremental and I wouldn't want people to install them in the wrong order and not get the intended result. If you tell me exactly what you want I will reply in a private message.

    Besides, I really should make a new full install package, that'd make it much easier.

    I know I and others have already said thanks to Pete and the rest of the crew a thousand times, but seriously you guys are amazing. How often do you get personal aftermarket care like this?! Relentless, diligent, often without being thanked -- and unpaid!
