It took Billy Boy and his cronies years to get XP sort of working so why trust something new he's bought out. I may get it when SP2 is brought out in about three years.

Ya you can play BF2 with Vista but not highly recommended. What I did was made a dual-boot so I have XP for games and Vista for all my other stuff. Just play as BF2 Admin (XP SP2 Compatible mode).

By the way, why are you using Internet Exploder?

Why not?

OK Battlefield 2/Project Reality plays horrible on Vista Ultimate. I got 2GB of RAM, 2.4 GHz Dual core CPU, and a not so good X1600 512MB. BF2/PR worked so well with XP pro, but after Vista Ultimate install, the game plays like shit. I mean the FPS drop is phenomenal. I don’t know if it’s the ATi Catalyst 7.2 (Vista) that’s causing the sudden bad gameplay experience, or it’s the fact that Vista forces an extra 300+MB shared system memory for graphics use. All I know is that I use to get 50+FPS in PR with all graphics settings on high and anti aliasing on 4x when I had XP pro platform. Now I get smooth gameplay, then a few seconds of constant lag, and then the same thing happens again.

Cheeseman sad .

Take AA off there really isnt a difference. I have an 8800 GTX and a FX-60 processor 4 gigs of ram and I used to get bad results with the AA on I had it on 1600X1200 but I mean yea. With the 8800 GTX I can get 8x AA but I dont want it. Game plays better I feel with no AA.

Im using vista home premium on my Athlon 64 3700/2gig/x800 gto system and did get quite an FPS drop. I used to be able to runeverything but lighting on high at 1280x1024 but now I've had to drop the res to 1024x768 and even at that the frame rate is lower in vista.

Haven't had any trouble with my X-Fi though, did you get the latest drivers from Creative?
