Switch the game to run directx 9 instead of Dx10. Question is, in my noobiness, how do you do this?
It should be in the video options in game. Unless they've changed that with a recent patch
Im also running 64 bit Vista which I here is a big majority of the problem since the original version of warhead supposedly only saves games in a 32 bit format?
Not a problem, I'm running Vista 64 and the game is perfect for me.
My best bet would be there is something wrong with your video card drivers. Did you install them off the CD? If yes, the problem is that you're running outdated drivers.
Go to AMD's website and download the latest. (9.4 I think)
Then perform this procedure:
- Remove the drivers through Control Panel/Add-remove programs
- Reboot into safe mode and run Driver Sweeper (select ATi- Display)
- Reboot again and install the new drivers.
