Hi! I have pretty much rebuilt this computer from spare stuff. I'm running 2 GB RAM, 512 MB nVidia 6200XE from Jaton, and 3 GHZ pentium 4. Pitiful specs, I know. Anyways, I am getting gray squares for mist/smoke in the game, as well as the loading screen. Also, the hair on the faces is glitched, it is almost like there is no texture there. Re-installed the game, didn't fix it. Re-installed the drivers at...

http://www.jaton.com...tail.php?pid=20

 

That card is my card. I know because I took the bastard out and compared it to the picture, and searched the product ID. I am running windows XP 32 bit, and picked the driver for the same. Somehow, I think it has to be a driver issue. I also notice, a split second before the game loads, the smoke is normal on the loading screen.

 

What is wrong, and how do I fix it?!

^ That doesn't make any sense. XP should be fine, and it is software. Are you saying it is the hardware that is causing it or the operating system? XP plays everything just fine. In fact, it is the best O.S. to use for gaming since it only used 512MB RAM in system resources.
