Under VISTA Home Premium on a Dell 6000 with an internal Intel graphics chip using the q2_widesceen mod, I lost the crosshairs.:cry: The original Quake II .exe doesn't lose the crosshairs but then the video is not very good. My screen resolution is 1680 by 1050 but I have tried other resolutions using the q2_widescreen mod without any success. Any ideas?

Also why are you using an on board graphics card for gaming? I mean yeah your running Quake 2 but c'mon. You probably can solve that cross hair issue with a dedicated gpu. Or it can just be Vista.

The internal Intel GPS works just fine under XP. I have two PCs, both have internal Intel GPS, one running VISTA and the other XP. I think q2_widescreen is the problem under VISTA.:cry: By the way, I get more FPS on the Intel GPS then I did on earlier NVidia graphics cards. I know the newer cards are much faster the internal Intel GPS. So, I am still looking for the developer of q2_widescreen. This could end up as an Intel XDMP driver issue.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
