Anyone remember the old Aliens vs Predator game from way back? I used to love it, and found it in my local game store the other day.

The game loads up fine, but right after the load, it goes into normal controls of the character, but the load screen is displayed on top of the regular in-game screen so I can't see anything. If I open the menu, then the menu screen is displayed on top of the in game screen... I can hear the audio, fire my weapons and do everything, but I can only see the HUD on top of the menu or load screen.

Unfortunately, the game has very few video options for the time it was made, I can only change the resolution, which does nothing.

Specs are in the sig.

Thanks.

No, I bought the very first AvP game.

I've played AvP 2 and loved it as well. You really should check out the first one though. It's scarier than the 2nd IMO. It reminds me of the Alien movies, the first one was all about horror, while the 2nd was more of an action ride. The games are the same way.

Hello,

I was wondering, are the AvP and AvP2 games compatible with windows XP? I have the chance to buy them from someone, but he lives an hour drive away, so it would be kinda stupid to drive all the way up there and back to find out they don't work.

Thx,

Because, even though I think it's stupid to drive up there for nothing, I don't mind doing it for a(ny) reason, it's a nice excuse for taking a spin my new motorbike :tazz:

Do you think AvP 1 is compatible with XP too? What about Half Life 1 + addons? I have read that there were people with XP that had some trouble with them, but I don't know if a) it's caused by XP or b) is there a way to fix it?

thx!

The reason why I would like AvP is purely nostalgic. I had a really good time playing it, but I only finished the marine plot. So now I would like to finish the other two too. I had the game, but I lent it to someone about three years ago and forgot all about it. Now he says he hasn't got it anymore and I believe him, but I don't know what I did with it anymore. :tazz:

What are your fav games these days?

I have some managers too. I've played CM01-02 for a long time and now I have FM2005, which is very good, but unfortunately veeeeeeeeeeeery slow on my machine. I also enjoy racing games, fps and rts.

Mostly older games, though... RA2, NFS-HP2, NFS U and many more...

What team do you play in your footie games?
