I think Antallica is right, the cd is probably damaged. Maybe someone can answer my following questions about SOF.
When i'm in the 3rd mission and just past the crappy sequency with Hawk (talking together) the screen stays black, I can only see my cursor and hear everything but the game stays black. Even if you restart it.
I tried to get the latest patch but it keeps saying that I don't have to patch.
its a pain but try copying all the cd to your hard drive and install from there. Patch it if necessary to 1.7 I think.. and you wont need the cd for play.
then after install just delete the files from the cd.
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
