    Anone experiencing problems with AOM graphics? mainly the colour and brightness changing by it self several times over the coarse of a game.
    Most often it goes a bright aqua blue or gold ting to everything making it hard to workout who's on who's side.
    Sometimes the screen goes blank requiring pressing the Windows key then clicking on the game in the task bar to return it to normal,sound just keeps going.
    The other 8 games on the computer at the moment have no such problems. The system is:
    AMD1000 unclocked
    516 sd ram
    Geforce2MX 32 mb Det 41.09
    SB Live value newest XP compatible driver
    1.01 update game patch
    DirectX 8.1

    Your right the vidio card is not too flash .I've tried AOM on the LOW quality setting as well and it does the same thing with the
    brightness and colours as well no less that on the high setting .
    The frame rate is fine on either setting.
    Where did you get the 42 Detinators there not on the Nvidia site yet.Detinator will never come out of beta if they are going to start including optimising for the new Gforce FX,I'm getting sick of this unified driver idea,why don't they have a driver for Gforce4MX cards and less and one for the cards with all the features.

    I play AOM (and luv it) on two different boxs. One is an 800Mhz AMD w/64MB GeForce 3 Ti200 (SB Live! Value SC) and the other is a P4 1.6 w/64MB GeForce 4 MX 440 (SB Live! Value SC) and no problems on either one.

    Here are my stabs at the situation:

    *Maybe you have some corrupted graphic files from the install, because if it was the vid card then you would have all the games doing that...

    *Got your AV prog running at all times? Done a full sweep?

    *I know it will take like 10 mins but a uninstall/reinstall might fix your problem--with a reboot in the middle of course. ;)

    *Good luck! :)
