The reason you may not be seeing replies is because you're not posting
complete messages with answers to basic questions. Stuff I'd rather not have
to ask you for, and information that I need to help ya out.
What is the name of the game?
What kind of computer are you running this on? (System Specs)
Who is your ISP? DSL or Cable?
Is this a Vista Upgrade, or a brand new computer with Vista installed?
Any error messages? What are they? When do they occur?
Little bits of information go a long way to getting >more< answers more
quickly. Now I have to wait for you to respond, and who knows when i'll be
back this way to respond to your message.
I can probably help, but guys like Dale, Scotty, and myself that help out
here can only do so much.
