- Reinstall your computer with a clean Windows 7 and don't upgrade your graphics drivers and DirectX. - Create a dual boot. If your computer has a secondary drive or a secondary partition (D:, E:, etc.), you can install Windows XP next to Windows 7. I don't know if it's possible to "steal" space from the Windows 7 partition without having to reintall Windows.
Other than that I really can't think of any more solutions!
Hi! Can you hepl me? I have problem, which is in name of the topic. (tests were ok)
Hi there. It's a little quiet around here these days, but fear not. We're still around!
This black line issue happened mostly while I was away, so Nemesis would probably know more about what has worked and what hasn't, but let's see what we can do.
First off, do you have administrator access in Vista? We'll need that in order to update your video card driver, which from your specs above goes back to a version from '06. That looks like a good place to begin.
Hmm. I really wish Nemesis were around. He's had a lot more experience with this problem than I have.
But.. in the meantime, let's see if we can make this work.
One thing I thought of after seeing so many people with newer systems having this problem is directX issues.
Specifically, a lot of older games were coded to work with things that were included in DirectX 9.0c, but that were no longer used in DX 10 or 11.
I don't know if it applies to Ghost Master, but I do know of several others from around that time, and the way you can fix those is to install DirectX 9 also.
Since 9 uses a different .dll file, it can exist on the same windows system as 10 or 11 at the same time, and the game will use the .dll that works best.
As I said, this may not fix the problem (yet), but it really shouldn't hurt anything either. Try selecting your language, download the installer, and run it. All it should really end up doing is installing the DX9 .dll library and a few optional components that aren't included in 10+
