Dark forces II is working fine here on vista32 as long as I run the shortcut in a window by adding ' -windowgui' to the target line. Although the game can still run in full screen using this, I got slight flicker on the right hand side of the screen.. until I realized all I needed to do was to disable the desktop composition in the shortcut compatibility menu (or switch vista's gadgets off).
1-The only issue I have regarding the display are now the menus-I am wondering if there is a way to show the menus in full screen-is it possible on vista/7 at all-if the crash I receive when attempting full screen menus is on all modern operating systems? [edit> from not being lazy and finally checking out other posts I assume that this is not possible)
2-This is my first time with the game (was cheap) so aside from the JK_Enhanced update to get show a slightly better display, and the crosshair DrawWrapper addon, are any other updates worth checking out than anyone would recommend over anything else?
3-Can I run the game without having to use the cd, yet also include all the media? Most patches that I have found dont seem to be able to keep the audio. I have the original game (!) but, just as everything is going completely digital nowadays, am too lazy to have to fetch discs every time I want to play. Should I make an exception for DFII and keep the disc in that drive?
thanks for any info
