Guys,

I can load a mission, fly it, and complete it. When I load the next one, my screen is showing about a quarter of the cockpit, it's up in the upper left hand of my monitor, and I can see my desktop in the remaining three-quarters of my monitor. I'm running XP Pro. What the hey is going on here?

No idea, just got OIF today and haven't had that problem yet.

Did you check all the ususal suspects: desktop rez and color depth the same as in game; DX9 installed; latest vidcard drivers?

BTW,
I grew up in FtWorth, went to Western Hills HS.

It does sound like a resolution switching issue. I haven't seen it with OIF but I have both game and desktop set at 1280X960.

Coli,

My mom went to Western Hills, but I went to Arlington Heights schools until 8th grade, then we moved to the boonies.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I chkd my DX version, I'm running the Det 44.03 drivers for my GF4 Ti4200. I dunno. May just have to invest in OIF.
