Im currently having problems with the whole halflife series.
When playing the game, the damned thing runs in the upper left hand corner, while the deskltop is shown in the rest of the monitor. I've tried like 3 different video drivers, and nothing changes. All I've changed is that i upgraded from CS 1.1 to 1.3.
Well, I found out it wasnt Powertoys screwing up my CS, although the desktop did have something to do with it.
After completely uninstalling Powertoys, StylesXP, and god knows what else, I finally figured out that it was the taskbar being located on the top of the desktop that did it. I moved it on the bottom again, and PRESTO!, fixed...
I find it very strange that there are so many people having troubles with cs and xp! I have been networking with friends for 5 days now, and still no error! What common errors are people getting in XP with cs?
i realise that. but none of the new tools are installed at all. i installed the new powertoys (the ones at the left hand side of the root xp-erience.org site if you're wondering) after i had uninstalled the original ones. the new power toys do not appear in the custom install and they don't install when i full install it. does anyone know why this can by. (i tried installing the third party installations of these powertoys but only the iso burner worked. the shplayer and bgswitch where installed in my system folder but didn't appear to work since i don't get an audio option in my taskbar toolbars and there is new background switcher tab on my desktop properties)
I can't run it with ZoneAlarm - it lets me start a game, choose a side, but then instead of bringing the relevant menu to choose a skin, it goes into the map and allows me to look around - but not move!
Stopping ZoneAlarm fixes this, but feeds my paranoia.
